Class of ‘67 October
I hope this newsletter finds
each of you in good health and great spirits.
Father Time and Mother Nature continue to march along. We are thankful that Jane continues to be
cancer free. We try to walk and exercise
as much as we can. One of our biggest
joys is the time spent playing with our grandchildren and watching their
personalities develop. They can say and
do the cutest things, can’t they! Then when needed, we can pass them back to
their parents. Hugs and prayers go out
to each and everyone.
Our 50th class reunion is not far off!
I would like to recognize our
scholarship recipients for this past school year. Taylor Atkins is our winner. Our scholarship was given in memory of
English Teacher Esther Wellons. The
winner for the class of ’88 is Callie Kunath. The class of ’89 did not award a scholarship
this year. We have now awarded over
$22,000 in scholarships! Thank you! We sponsored our 3rd annual Central Alumni 5K
Run/Walk on April the 25th, 2015.
Our theme was a tribute to former and current teachers, facility and
staff at Central. We had a great turn
out with 6 teachers that were at Central in 1966! We also had a great class participation in
the race. Nancy and Chippie had the
group over after the race! It is like a
mini reunion. We had great coverage by
the Kenbridge - Victoria Dispatch and the Blackstone Courier Record. Plans are under way for next year’s
race. We are still working on the date –
either Sat April 23 or 30th.
The theme for the 4th annual event will be Star Wars in an
effort to get more participation of the High School, Middle School and
Elementary School students. We will be
raffling off related items. We are
getting more volunteers and sponsors for the event. The objective is 2 fold – raise $‘s for our
Foundation and to raise the awareness of our Foundation. Check out the pictures on our web site -

Treasurer report from Gene Hart: As of 10-28-14 we had $7,835 in
our checking account and our Vanguard Windsor fund is valued at $15,100 which
is a healthy increase. We are still a
ways from our long term goal of $100,000 but we are getting closer to
establishing our endowment fund. The
class of ‘88 had a balance of $1,038 in their checking and the class of ‘89 had
a balance of $4,612.
Our goal for our annual
campaign drive is to raise $2,000 by November 30th. Every $5 or $10 will be very important. Remember contributions are tax
deductible. Thank you for your
participation and support. Send checks
to Gene Hart at 2570 Sandy Lane, Victoria, VA
23974. Make checks payable to C
of L Alumni Scholarship Foundation. Put for the class ’67 scholarship.
Venassia Günter continues to spearhead the class of ‘89
efforts while Scott Wingfield has been the contact for the class of ‘88.
Central is 6 - 3 with wins
over Altavista, Randolph Henry, Prince Edward, Nottoway
and Bluestone. The 3 losses are to
Goochland, Buckingham, and Campbell. The
remaining game in the regular season is with Cumberland. Central is averaging 34.4points per game!
Warm wishes for the holiday
season ahead and for the coming year. I
want to see EVERYONE at the 4th annual Alumni 5K Run/Walk in late April
