For CHS 57 classmates
Loretta Willis Marshal and her husband Billy were a hit at our 50th reunion last year but even a bigger hit when they produced a slide show of their pictures and pasted it on their family website to share with all of us.

Ellen Tillery Trammell has serious viral infection
Even the most
advanced programs from Norton or McAfee cannot take care of this one. It
appears to affect those who were born prior to 1950.

Update your email address on the Cradock website
Perhaps your email address on the Cradock.org website might not be the email address that you are currently using. It is easy to fix this if you want. Please go to the website and contact by email the Webmaster, Janie Norris Evans. Her name is in many places on the site.
Send her your email address and she will see that it is posted correctly on the site. While you are on the site browse a bit and see how much the site has improved since you were last there. Janie does a great job with the site and of course, we want to be sure that your classmates and others who might find the site and want to contact you will be able to do so.
Keep those cards and letters coming
Keep sending emails to be passed along so that more of us will be aware of what the others in CHS 57 are doing. There is interest in keeping Cradock alive in our memories. Please take time soon to look at the http://cradock.org/ website. My friend Janie CHS 60 is the Webmaster and she does a terrific job of keeping her Cradock constituents (you and me) up-to-date. As usual, this Newsletter will be on Janie’s website.
