Central of Lunenburg - Victoria, Virginia
I hope this newsletter finds each of you well in these most
tumultuous of times - stock market plunge, home and bank foreclosures,
fighting wars in 2 countries and a fiercely fought presidential
campaign. It makes us stop and count our blessings.
This is a significant year coming up. Most of us will turn 60!
In fact some of us have already reached this plateau. So Happy
Birthday to one and all!!! There was a time when I thought 60 was
old. Not any longer.
I am happy to report that the Class of 1988 is in the process
of establishing a scholarship for their class. This is the first class
outside of our class to do so. We have been contacting those classes
that would be having their class reunions. Like the classes of '68 and
'69 - 40th, classes '73 and '74 - 35th, etc. A lot of seeds have been
planted. I'm hoping as more classes join us the momentum will pick
up. When you have an opportunity, tell other Central alumni (these
could be your brothers and sisters) what we are doing. Help spread the
We have now awarded $4,750 in scholarships over the past 6
years ($300 in 2003, $500 in 2004, $700 in 2005, $1,000 in 2006, $1,250
in 2007 and $1,000 in 2008). When you think about it that is quite an
accomplishment. Thank you. Thank you.
The Guidance Committee at Central selected Amanda Graham to
receive our scholarship this past year. Amanda is attending Liberty
University. She plans to major in elementary
Education and hopes to come back and teach in Lunenburg County some
day. Our scholarship this year was given in memory of Cynthia Whittaker
Crafton, wife of classmate Bobby Crafton. Bobby attended the Awards
Day at Central and had the opportunity to meet with Amanda. He was
impressed. This coming year we will remember Andrew Sluiter followed by
Harold Tisdale next time.
Our investment in the Windsor mutual fund with Vanguard as with
most stocks has taken a beating. Our net investment of $8,578 now has a
value of $5,489 a drop of 36%. Hopefully it will work it's way back up.
It is time for our annual campaign drive for our scholarship
fund. Send checks to Gene Hart at 2570 Sandy Lane, Victoria, VA 23974.
Make checks out to C of L Alumni Scholarship Foundation. Put for the
Class of 1967 scholarship. If you haven't given in the past, please
consider this year. We would like to increase our participation. It
doesn't have to be much. $5, $10 or more is fine. Give out of the
appreciation to the teachers that help shaped you. Please mail
contributions by December 1st. Thank you. Thank you.
The family of Michael O'Brien has made a donation to the
Foundation in his memory.
