Class Picnic

TODAY was the DAY for the annual Clover Park Class of 1962 Picnic.  Although the turnout was small, a fine time was had by one and all.  We made some minor last minute preparations yesterday and ....




Marion tended to her garden first thing this morning ...











... and we headed over to American Lake for the morning.






I put up the sign at the picnic shelter, we set up our lawn chairs, laid out the Klahowyas, 
(yearbooks) for '59, '60, '61. & '62, spread the table cloth and some snacks on the table, I put on a CD by the Platters and when "Only You" came on, Marion said, "May I have this dance?"  

 That made the whole day worth it all.  There we were swaying to the oldies as others passed by and looked and simply smiled.  

Beautiful...   




  

In a little while, Karl and Melody Knight arrived.  Then came Mary Ellen Johnson, and shortly there after it was Ed and Connie Densmore.                                


We all had a wonderful time of casual conversation and visiting.  Karl and I took a little walk down toward the beach.  I love to hear him talk about his days on the Mission Fields of Africa.  Mary Ellen said she is trying to slow down and sort of semi-retire from her Piano Tutoring business.  She said she is down to about 30 students a week now.  Ed and Connie were radiant with spirituality as they told of how providence had worked in their lives.  Several we expected to see - did not make it for some reason:  Pat Schoolcraft said she wanted to come when I saw her at Freddy Fest, Mel Grant and his wife were planning to come, so was Jaimie Tubig and his wife, along with Marcia Collins and Janelle Hopper.  We had a note from Bruce Hubbard and - some others sent in email regrets that they were not going to be able to make it this time.  The four hour rental time for the shelter flew by and we had to pack up and say our goodbyes.  Marion and I went down to 56th and South Tacoma Way for the Car Show that was going on there and then home for a NAP.   :) 

 Kit Baker:  
Larry, I would love to join you all but Poulsbo RV has a very different idea of
what my Schedule is all about...  Say hello to all!      






Betty Johnson:  
Thank you Larry and Marion... I will not be there... have already promised to see
my mom's brother..(my uncle) in Klamath Falls......  Thank you for the work and
arrangements you have done for everyone to be there & thanks for being at Judy's
last month.   Wow, autumn is fast approaching..have a good one.




Judy Haley:  
Hey, Larry!  Thanks for the invite.  We won’t be there because we’re doing another
birthday party – Howard (my husband)’s 80th.  Have a great time!  Looks like good
weather. And say Hello to the group for me.  Thanks again, Judy



Larry, I am sorry I can't be at the picnic but pastoring obligations
cause it,  I know you will have a great time with Carl Knight and the others.  God bless you and your ministry.   

Pastor Joe Hedges




Thank you Larry and Marion!

I really enjoyed visiting with all of you today!  Thank you for all the goodies and the warm welcome.  On the way back to Puyallup I drove by the home on 116th (Laurel Ave)  where I grew up and stopped by the donut shop on Gravelly Lake Drive. I may be a pound heavier tonight, but it was worth it!  Thanks so much for the meaningful time of sharing and remembering…

Enjoy the rest of the summer!
Love to all…

Mary Ellen


Hey, Larry,
It's nice of you to coordinate a class picnic.  Unfortunately, being down here in California,
it is too far for me to go to have lunch with you guys.  I hope a lot of the class members
show up and that you have a great time.  Take a lot of photos.
Ron Johnson.                                                                                         


                                                                                                                  

   
         Well, there were a lot of others that I thought were pretty cool looking but blogger is balking for some reason at taking any more uploads at this point so -  I guess that's going to have to be IT, for now anyway.  Please log on to our Classreports.org Website and/or leave me a note HERE or ....
   .... send me an email or call me and let me know if you think we should keep on going with this idea of an annual picnic.  
       

 

Chow !

Protect our youth.


Help Parents Resist Propaganda
Pushed into Schools


There's an epic struggle occurring in today's public schools.
In the name of "diversity" and "tolerance," school administrators and classroom teachers are being encouraged to promote materials—primarily by outside sexual advocacy groups—which blur the lines of normal gender roles. And, oftentimes without the parents' knowledge.
One such book recommended in "diversity" materials for educators is 10,000 Dresses, a story about a boy named Bailey, who dreams about dresses and wants to wear them. The story switches back and forth between gender pronouns that refer to Bailey:
"Dad, I dreamt about a dress," Bailey said. ...
"And I was wondering if you could grow me a dress like that?"
"Bailey, what are you talking about? You're a boy. Boys don't wear dresses!"
"But, I don't feel like a boy," she said.
"Well, you are one, Bailey, and that's that! Now go away, and don't mention dresses again!"
     
  Irreplaceable, in select cinemas May 6  
     
So, is it any wonder that children might come home confused or asking questions about their own gender identity?
And, why do outside groups aggressively promote books like this for use in the classroom?
Simple: To familiarize and normalize behaviors, such as cross-dressing, to children at very young ages. And more parents and students are encountering classroom lessons, which cross the line—well beyond diversity teaching into actual sexualized propaganda.
Do you agree parents should be the ones to determine when, how and if their children are exposed to sensitive subjects like this—not outside activist groups? And that all students' deeply held values—including those who follow what the Bible says about sexuality and gender—should be respected in taxpayer-funded schools?
If so, we invite you to partner with Focus on the Family®, as we continue to equip and engage parents with biblically based, unique resources provided by True Tolerance®.
As a donor-funded ministry, we look to God and to you to help us continue providing practical and proven resources—such as our new Equipping Parents to Respond to Gender Confusing Messages in Schools—you can use with your own family, church and friends.
Your generous one-time or recurring gift or $15, $35, $50 or even $100 will help us continue to equip parents, pastors and students to speak forth God's truth in grace in today's culture.
Will you partner with us today?
And, as always, we'd love to hear from you! Email us at ThrivingValues@Family.org.

God Love 'em

We need to show more sympathy 
for these people.

* 
They travel miles in the heat.


* 
They risk their lives crossing a 
border.


* 
They don't get paid enough wages.


* 
They do jobs that others won't do.


*
They live in crowded conditions 
among a people who speak a different 
language.

*

They rarely see their families,
and they face adversity all day ~
every day.

*

I'm not talking about illegal aliens 
~ I'm talking about our troops!


Doesn't it seem strange that so
many are willing to lavish all kinds
of social benefits on illegals, 
but don't support our troops?
Wouldn't it be great if we took
the $360,000,000,000 (that's billion)
we spend on illegals every 
year, and spent it on our troops!!!

Please pass this on; this is worth the 
short time it takes!

A veteran is someone who, at one point 
in their life, wrote a blank check
made payable to The United States of 
America for any amount, up to and 
including their life.

GOP Senators join Sen. Sessions in push for vote on Pres. Obama's executive amnesty


Citizen calling and faxing efforts over the last week have helped encourage several Republican Senators in joining Sen. Jeff Sessions in his call for a vote on Pres. Obama's executive amnesties!
Most notably, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) issued a statement this week urging Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to bring H.R.5272 to the floor. The bill, introduced by Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and passed by the House on their final day of session before leaving for the August recess, would defund future DACA applications and renewals and future work permits for illegal aliens.
The House has passed two bills to address the humanitarian crisis on our southern border, and the Senate should vote on them. That's why I began the process of putting them on the Senate's legislative calendar shortly before the current recess, and I urge Majority Leader Reid to schedule a vote on these bills as soon as the Senate returns.

-- Sen. Mitch McConnell
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) authored the Senate version of the Blackburn bill, S.2631, and this week wrote an op-ed for a Texas Tribune publication that not only called for a vote to end DACA, but also blamed it for the ongoing border surge.
In 2011, before this policy was enacted without approval from Congress, roughly 6,000 unaccompanied children were apprehended at the border; in 2014, with the policy in effect, an estimated 90,000 children will cross the border, many of them smuggled by vicious criminals.

-- Sen. Ted Cruz
Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), who chairs the National Republican Senatorial Committee, also joined Sessions' effort.
Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Democrats should allow a vote on the House-passed anti-DACA Bill. I am a cosponsor of a Senate version of this legislation and believe America's elected representatives should be allowed to debate and vote on whether amnesty should be given to millions of illegal immigrants.

-- Sen. Jerry Moran
Sen. Sessions' colleague from Alabama, Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), who serves as the Ranking Member of the Senate Appropriations Committee and vocally opposed the Senate's emergency supplemental bill, also called for a vote.
We must focus on enforcing the immigration laws currently on the books, securing our border, and ensuring that we do not reward illegal immigration. It is my hope that the Senate will expeditiously pass the House-approved bill that would block President Obama from continuing or expanding DACA.

-- Sen. Richard Shelby
Sen. John Hoeven (R-S.D.), co-author of a border amendment that helped secure the necessary votes to pass the Gang of Eight's bill last summer, also urged Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to bring the anti-DACA bill to the floor for a vote.
We believe that we should be allowed to vote on the House-passed bill. We need to enforce our immigration laws and secure the border.

-- Sen. John Hoeven
Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) joined in through a press release on Wednesday.
We have a true crisis at our southern border. Yet Harry Reid is blocking Senate votes on the two bills the House has passed and has put us in recess instead. I call on him to have the Senate vote on those two common-sense, House-passed bills immediately.

--Sen. David Vitter
Reports continue to speculate on the scope of an expanded executive action by the Obama Administration that could grant amnesty and work permits to an estimated 5-6 million illegal aliens.
With control of the Senate at stake during November's mid-term elections, voters should continue to force Senators to take a public stand on Pres. Obama's executive amnesties. A few Democratic Senators who are up for re-election in toss-up states have expressed concern with plans to expand the DACA program, but most Democrats have either not taken a position or left it to Pres. Obama's discretion.
Over the final weeks of August, please continue to call your Senators if they have yet to take a position on Pres. Obama's proposed executive actions. Starting next week, we'll also be asking activists to visit their local Senators' offices to demand they hold a vote on the House passed anti-DACA bill. If you are interested in ORGANIZING a group office visit please look here to see if there is an office near you, then email Melanie Oubre here.
