Ballard High School
"Class of 1966"

Hello Ballard Class of 1966 classmates,

Here we are in February already and if you hadn’t noticed it has 29 days in it this year. May I offer a very happy birthday to those of us who have been waiting for their special day? 29 days this month means that we are 1 1/3 days closer to the average of the 30 and 1/3 days we usually see each month per year. So this year when I pay my February bills I won’t feel as cheated not receiving the average days as all the other months.
February is also the month that has Valentine’s Day in it. It reminds me of a Valentine’s Day not so long ago in my past when I woke up with quite a start. My wife asked me what the matter was. “I had a dream that you had given me a Rolex watch for Valentine’s Day”, I said “What could that mean?” “You’ll know tonight,” she said shyly.
That evening when I came home there was a small package waiting for me. I ripped open the wrapping paper, tore into the box, and pulled out my gift. It was a book entitled The Meaning of Dreams.  

Don't forget to take a look at the great pictures taken by Meridith and her husband of the 2019 picnic. Stop by our Photo Memories department and check them out. If you are new to our class website and find it difficult recognizing anyone in the pictures posted there then you may need to plan on attend our next picnic and become reacquainted. Our committee is always looking for new ideas for our gatherings. Greg Carman suggested inviting Keith Bakke and his band for entertainment. Keith, if you are seeing this, please give us a call.
In closing, Please continue to stay healthy, hopeful and in good spirit because we all wish to see you again in September. By the way, those of you who were unable to attend this year’s class picnic really missed a good one. We hope your plans for 2020 will include us next time. 

Thank you,
Your Ballard High School Class of 1966 Reunion Committee.
