attended enjoyed their evening. We will be keeping up with this

periodic changes on this site between now and then. Be sure to
check in from time to time, and keep us informed of any address
changes, phone number changes, or email changes. Email is the
most efficient way for us to stay in touch, so if you have been

more of us move into retirement. Thanks to everyone for helping
us keep this site up to date with information.
are still looking for someone to head up the reunion committee
for our 50th reunion in 2018. Experienced members of the
committee from the last two reunions will be happy to continue
serving with the planning for this coming event.
Friday, January 16, 2015, the Allen Lady Canaries Basketball
Team officially recognized our class for the gift we raised
during the planning for, and during, our 45th reunion. The
1968 team had been the first girl's basketball squad in school
history to be a varsity team instead of an honors team, so we
had two members of that squad represent our class at the game
that night. Allen's Athletic Director, Mr. Scott Cooperman,
introduced Nancy Eitner Grosman and Pat Lutte Quay to the
crowd in attendance, and then added the following information:
fall, the Class of 1968, presented a check to Coach Broyles
and the Lady Canaries Basketball Program in the amount of
$2558. The Class of 1968 wanted to assist Coach Broyles in
getting off to a good start in his first season as the Lady
Canaries Head Girls Basketball Coach. This past summer, this
gift was used to purchase team Travel Uniforms for the Varsity
and JV teams, long sleeve shirts that could be worn on Fridays
in school, and to assist some student-athletes with the
purchase of team sneakers for the 2014-2015 season. In
recognition of the financial support that the Class of 1968
has shown, Coach Broyles, along with the rest of his staff and
the Lady Canaries Basketball players would like to present a
framed team picture wearing the new team travel uniform to the
members of the Class of the Class of 1968 who are in
attendance this evening as a way to say thank you for
supporting the 2014-2015 Lady Canaries Basketball program."
Below are some photos from the evening.

One of our
classmates with an AOL email address marked our last email
notice of class news as spam, so until that person lets me
know that they have corrected the situation, or I cancel that
address from the email list, I may not be able to email anyone
