ANNOUNCEMENTS

Our 50th reunion was a blast!

Reunion Dinner

The good feelings and camaraderie of our three 50th reunion events is still with me as I look back on that wonderful weekend in September. But I don’t think I was the only one feeling these warm “vibes.” Everyone seemed to have loads of fun. The reunion dinner on September 22 at the Winchester Country Club was attended by 44 classmates, their guests, and 6 teachers and their spouses for a total of 79 people. The evening began with a social hour. It was wonderful to see everyone who came, but we missed those of you who weren’t there.

Class president Richard Ramsburg welcomed everyone and thanked the hard-working reunion committee with a special thanks to our “prime mover” Rachel Pierce Newell, after which Reverend Franklin Roberts gave a fine invocation before we sat down to a delicious dinner of prime rib, chicken, and fish with salad and sides. Faye Hurt Shirley and Linda Hurt Petrie cut a delicious cake they had contributed which was decorated with a picture of our Clarke County High School building. Club staff then served it to everyone. Meanwhile a slide show of classmates’ photos and photos from class events collected and assembled by our technical guru, Tom ”Dep” Digges, played in the background.

After the meal, the Reverend Bobby Morgan remembered our deceased classmates and spoke to the unity of our class and what it has meant to him and to us. Richard and others did some reminiscing and Gerald Dodson and Rachel read portions of the Class Prophecy and Last Will and Testament. Reunion committee members had collected an amazing array of door prizes that were given out by lottery to lucky attendees. Throughout the evening, Carla Carlisle Ramseier and husband Gordon made the rounds taking the wonderful snapshots and formal group photos that you will find, uploaded by Dep, under the heading “50th Reunion Pictures” in the navigation bar to the left. All in all, it was a wonderful evening of reunion, reminiscing, and all-round good cheer that had us feeling, for at least a few hours, that all is right with the world.

Tours of Clarke County High Schools

On Sunday, September 23 at 11:00, Fred Alger’s wife Janet, a former member of the Clarke County School Board, arranged for a tour of our old school building, now Johnson Williams Middle School, and the newest Clarke County High School, which is an amazing state-of-the-art educational facility. A group of around 10 of us enjoyed seeking out familiar places in our old high school building and seeing the additions that have been made to the cafeteria facilities and a new administration and classroom wing with new front entrance. If you haven’t had a chance to see the newest high school building, you should arrange to do so. It is a stunning tribute to the visionary planning of the school board. Pictures from these tours have been uploaded to the “50th Reunion Pictures” page as well. Thank you, Janet, for making these tours possible. 

Wine Social

Did you know that Clarke County has a very creditable winery? 17 classmates and guests assembled at Veramar Vineyards off of Route 7 to sample wines and share camaraderie for the final event of our reunion weekend. The good cheer and amiable warmth of the evening before continued throughout the afternoon as classmates got a further chance to catch up on each others’ lives and share good memories. We only regretted that more of our classmates did not brave the rainy afternoon to join us. Pictures from the afternoon were taken and uploaded by Dep and are also available in the “50th Reunion” tab. Again we left each other with good feelings and promises to stay in touch. I pray that we follow through.

We have a Facebook page and have created an Event for our 50th reunion. If any of you have more expertise in Facebook, please let the administrators know. We would welcome some help.

Hi, Welcome to your website as a member of the Clarke County High School Class of '68.

It will always be a "work in progress." If you have suggestions, please email me at info@clarkecountyva68.org.

We also have a Facebook page--also a work in progress.  If any of you are proficient in Facebook, please let us know. There are a few kinks that have been yet to be worked out.

Full instructions on how to use this site and how to create your profile, upload photos, and other information is included at the "First Time Visitors" link on the left. Please read this and refer to it if you have questions about how to do anything. If you're still having problems, don't hesitate to email.

I uploaded my yearbook picture onto my profile page by first scanning it in, saving it as a JPG file, and then uploading it using the instructions on the "First Time Visitors" page.

Many of the yearbooks by CCHS are available at the site "Classmates.com". Unfortunately, Classmates.com does not have our 1968 yearbook. We are trying to locate a clean copy to send to them for uploading. If you want a trip down memory lane and don't have old yearbooks handy, look at our photos in the 1967 or 1966 yearbooks. How young we looked!

Emails may be shared within this site using the contact option at the top of each classmate's profile page (just look under the classmate's main photo in the upper left). This way you will be able to contact classmates without sharing your private email address, unless you choose to do so.
