Forwarding a note from Richard Siegel, Class of 1969, regarding 'feeder' schools for Grady/Midtown

Hello all--
The Atlanta Public School system has announced a proposal to deal with the overcrowding of schools, and it may interest a lot of you.  I'm sending it out because many of us live out of town, and many people who are still here don't read the Atlanta paper.   The proposal is to turn the Inman school building into a school for 4th and 5th graders only.  Four elementary schools---Hope-Hill, Mary Lin, Morningside and Springdale Park--would become schools for grades K-3 only, and those students would go to Inman.  Students leaving Inman would go to middle school, grades 6-8, at the newly renovated Howard Middle School, which is near the Atlanta Medical Center (old Georgia Baptist Hospital).  The article I read does not say this, but I presume that students leaving Howard Middle School would all go to Midtown (formerly Grady).  The proposal was to take effect in the fall of 2022, but it has been pushed back to the fall of 2023 to deal with parents' and community issues relating to these changes....
On another note--we don't seem to be getting any younger, and we are losing classmates.  We are lucky to have such a great class, 52 years later, where many people are still in touch.  Many classmates are interested in what happens to us.  So, please tell your spouse, partner, significant other, children, fellow classmate, or a friend to keep us in the loop.  You can leave your log-on/password to the website with someone, and they can e-mail us through the site.  Or, they can contact me or any of the other website administrators, who are Lyn Deadmore Taylor, Buddy Ray, and Gene Roberts Turner.
Thanks.  Be well and stay safe.

John H. Fain
July 3, 2020
John H. Fain, 68, died July 3rd, 2020 in Daytona Beach, FL. John was a beloved brother, uncle and friend.
Born in Atlanta, John was a firefighter for the city for nearly 30 years, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather. John was fascinated with cars and fire trucks and loved collecting those types of models. He also enjoyed books about history and the music of Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash.

John unselfishly took care of his parents, Robert and Willene (Stroud), during their later years, who preceded him in death. John fulfilled this dream of living in Florida and retired to Daytona Beach, where he enjoyed walking with his beloved dog, Dexter. John was known for his kindness and generosity and will be greatly missed.

John is survived by his sisters, Margaret Arden and Jeanine (Gary) Lazenby, his brother Robert Fain, his nephews Scott (Amy) Lazenby, Robert Lazenby, and Jason (Nora) Fain, his nieces Allison (Mike) Gosser and Tracy Arden, and best friend Shelly Kerr.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 22nd at 11:00 AM (ET) at the First Presbyterian Church, 118 East Monroe Street, Jacksonville, FL and will streamed live on Facebook on Fpc Pres, please see link below.

Class Of 1970



Dear Classmates,

In light of the uncertainties caused by the current worldwide pandemic, the Reunion Committee is in the process of rescheduling our reunion until summer of 2021. Once we have more information, we will let you know.

There is one idea we'd like for you to weigh in on. What do you think about combining our reunion with the Class of 1971? Would having a larger group be a positive thing or would you be more concerned about a larger group? Would you rather keep our rescheduled 50th reunion uniquely ours? We look forward to hearing from you.

Stay well!
Your 50th Reunion Committee

Robert Michael Kornegay, 67, of Atlanta,died from complications of diabetes on Monday February 3, 2020. 

Mike possessed an engaging personality and could speak endlessly on a variety of topics. He was an animal lover, enjoyed giving greeting cards for any and all occasions, and possessed a unique sense of humor. He was fortunate to have had many supportive friends and neighbors. Rest In Peace Mike. 

He is survived by his two sisters, Nancy and Karen. A Celebration of Life Gathering will be held in the near future.

Southern Exchange Ballrooms...once the iconic Davison’s and then Macy's department store on Peachtree.

Davison's was founded in the late nineteenth century, bought by Macy's in 1925. Macy's constructed the Peachtree Street store in 1925. Macy's kept the Davison's name until 1985 when it was changed to Macy's. Macy's was bought by Federated in the early 1990s. Federated owned the other large Atlanta department store, Rich's. In 2003, all of the Macy's and Rich's were converted to the Rich's-Macy's nameplate. In 2005, the Rich's-Macy's nameplate was changed to just Macy's.

Rustic and more intimate than typical venues, the Grant Loft blends historic charm – with its exposed brick walls dating back to 1927. Located on the second floor of 200 Peachtree Street.
