I hope that we can use this message forum to keep in touch with classmates . If you need or know of classmates ( we have had 13 emails fail) emails , we hope this does not mean that they have left us here on earth. If you know of any who have changed their email addresses, please contact them and see if they would forward it to us.

The Class of 1960 owes a great debt to Jane McKee Bumen and to Jim Bumen for their gracious use of their facility each time we have had a Reunion. Enough can not be said about the things they have done for this class. We will miss them in the years to come.

I will not be able to attend this year's reunion. We live full time now in RV and are currently traveling down to Florida a week at a time  and then on to Texas and Arizona. I am saddened by the loss of so many classmates last year but hopeful I can make it back to a reunion before my time is up. Best wishes to all.

To The 1960 Class of Chillicothe High School

It has been brought to our attention there are over 400 children (grades 7-12) within the Chillicothe City School district who are homeless.  About 3-4 years ago the Chillicothe Schools Guidance Dept. began Cavalier Closet, where students may go "shopping" for needed clothing items (sweatpants, underwear, socks, t-shirts) and food and toiletry selections.  If the student is embarrassed, guidance counsolers will deliver items to where they are.

Mrs. Amy Winfield, guidance secretary, says students come in daily for help in addition to being on FREE breakfast and lunch.  This program continually gains in participation and popularity and is supported by students, staff, district office and Chillicothe Board of Education.

The Class of 1957 raised over $1,000 at their reunion.  If you are interested in giving, donations (checks made out to Ila Sopher) will be received by our class treasurer, Ila Stewart Sopher, (967 Cleveland St., Chillicothe, OH  45601) through November 1.  We will give a Class "Check" to Chillicothe City Schools, earmarked for this program.  Mrs. Winfield is excited about our participation.  She said our donation will be in time to purchase turkeys.  Last year 52 Thanksgiving boxes were given to students.  

Thank you for your consideration.
