If 2017 is a homecoming year for you – hope your celebrations are wonderful, with all the good memories front & center, all the irksome behaviors left in the past.

The homecoming for my high school is at the same time as for my college – the two are sort of joined at the hip…  make that at the HEART.

This year is the 50th anniversary of the class that were seniors when I entered as a freshman.  It was a year that changed my life – Glenn Hall became my home away from home, the office a spot where I always felt welcomed by homesick dorm students who missed their younger sibs.

Just hit me – this is the 50th year of my finally feeling like I had a place somewhere.  Thanks, Miss Betty, for always making me feel welcome, always making me feel like one of your “girls.”  Thanks, Gail, for always making a mere freshman feel part of DEKA’s circle of friendship.

Next weekend will feature a special procession, a special church service, great football, the final farm market, LOTS of parties (Classes of —7) & dinners & what passes these days as a dance.  It will be filled with fun & joy & old friends reuniting, seeing only the memories & moments & nary a wrinkle.

If you’re anywhere near a homecoming game of any sort – GO!  If you are blessed to be part of this year’s reunion classes – CONGRATULATIONS & HAVE A BLAST!
