This is a small display for the LeMay Car Museum the worlds
largest car collection. Located in Tacoma this is our 5th year
for this event for a fund raiser for the museum, a formal affair
titled "Heels and Wheels".

We had to use small products as the area is confined, but it
came out nice. You can hear the response of the attendees of the
party on a balcony of the museum.

Re: AVID Program

I did a little research and this is what I found: 

      "AVID Program Prepares Local Students for College

      RICHLAND, WA-- These days school districts are getting
      students on the path to college as early as middle
      school. The AVID program taught throughout the Richland
      School District stands for Achievement Via Individual
      Determination. Teachers are showing students they have
      what it takes to graduate college and giving them the
      tools they need to make it there. AVID class of Richland
      High School students are working on the skills they need
      to graduate from their college of choice and they're
      only freshman. This is the first year the Richland
      School District is offering the program that provides
      students in the middle of academic achievement standards
      guidance to reach their goals. The program teaches kids
      organizational and academic skills."

Re: West Point 

Maren, Here's what our '68 Bomber said to the cadets graduating
from West Point. Powerful stuff. Sounds like MATTIS ('68) may
have written this himself.

Re: 'portant stuff

First an important announcement: Please accept this as a
heart felt request that each you who are able join Pat Davis 
in a Celebration of life for my very best Spalding friend,
Craig DAVIS ('65-RIP) on (write this down and put it where you
will not forget) June 22, 2017 between the hours of 4pm and 7pm
at the Gaslight. Yes, I understand that it conflicts with the
CDN's DQ gathering. This is a one time deal, you can wander back
to the DQ afterward. I will not be able to attend, as my stupid
cuss word cuss word cuss word flight does not get in till 8pm. 
I fly Allegiant because all other airlines require me to spend 
an entire day in three airports (choices are: Vegas, Seattle,
Portland or Salt Lake) and are no more convenient as to arrival.
On Allegiant, I get on the plane and 2 hours later I am in
Pasco. I hope each of you will remember Craig and those who can
attend, Please, Please do.

Second, nuther 'portant announcement:  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Duncan 
SINCLAIR ('65) and Sandy JANCOVIC ('66) on your special day, 
June 8, 2018!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: AVID Graduates at RHS

      "AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual

      their goal of preparing for college readiness and are
      willing to challenge themselves with a rigorous course
      load including AP and/or Honors courses. Areas addressed
      are organization, time management, test taking, study
      skills, writing, and navigating the college and
      scholarship application process. With AVID providing
      support, students commit to making school a priority in
      their lives. The AVID Elective has been shown to prepare

      load. AVID is a nationally known, proven program which
      is highly regarded by the most prestigious universities
      in the nation. Students enrolled in AVID commit to the

      would not usually go to college."

Re: Hermiston will join MCC ~ 6/7/17 Tri-City Herald
      "Hermiston High School has been admitted to the Mid-
      Columbia Conference, joining its nearby Washington
      neighbors in a move that will make for drastic savings
      in the school's athletic travel budget.

      The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association
      announced Monday that its executive board approved the
      move of the Oregon school into Washington's District 8
      as a Class 3A school beginning in the 2018-19 school

      The Bulldogs will become full members of the MCC and
      will participate with Washington schools in the
      post season. They will join the seven Tri-Cities high
      schools and Walla Walla, bumping up the MCC into a nine-
      team league."

      "Joe Gauthier is the fastest man in Washington. He
      proved that with a time of 10.46 seconds in winning the
