8: Class Blogger Kathy Au Crosier | Thanks for all you are doing for us, Kathy. You work so hard on our behalf and have managed to make us all feel more connected to one another. Because of you I am looking forward to this reunion more than the others. I’ve heard snippets of the lives of so many classmates, and I can hardly wait to see them in person and perhaps speak to them for the first time ever. I was too shy in high school to venture away from my small circle of friends, but now I know about the hobbies, travels, and grandkids of so many; I just want to congratulate them and thank them for sharing. Being in charge of the Memory Boards has been sobering, and I am so thankful for the good health of those of us that remain. Being at this reunion in body or spirit is a true gift. Let the party begin! Donna Canzoneri Wray | Kathy says she is the most unlikely person to have this responsibility, since she was named the Shyest Girl in the Class of 1968. | She credits Miss Glenna Thompson and Miss Marjorie Imbach, senior English teachers, for giving her the writing skills she has used her whole life.
