Re: Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas! I pray that family and friends will help
make your days wonderful in every way. Looking into the new
year: Class of '53 is planning to celebrate its 65th year
September 7-8, 2018. We like to wrap our "special year"
festivities into Club 40's, and then add special touches 
that classmates devise. Please share your ideas. 

Now, God bless you and everyone you love! 

Bomber Noel,

Happy birthday to another of our "adopted" little brothers,
Dan GREGORY ('66). We've enjoyed your autobiography and felt
honored to be included as part of your experiences. Have a
wonderful day, and a merry Christmas. The Cole family

Happy Advent and Merry Christmas to everyone this Christmas!
Blessings to all. I had the good fortune to hear the Cinnamon
Bear, episode 26, tonight!! It was so good to listen again. 
I can still picture myself as a child sitting by our little
white radio in the kitchen on 648 Chestnut Street! I loved
that story, especially the silver star. We had a beautiful
silver star on top of our Christmas tree every year
throughout my entire childhood and I think it was still 
there throughout my twenties! Weren't we all so very blessed 
to have grown up in Richland and have the beautiful carefree
childhood that we were so fortunate to have been a part of.

Memories of a fleeting childhood. Next year I will share the
story of the Cinnamon Bear with my 5 beautiful grandchildren
or at least the youngest at heart. 

I am so glad that I have taken a break from facebook so that
I was able to hear this story tonight and remember.

May this entry find you all well and know that you are
blessed today. Blessings to all Bombers and their families 
all over the planet tonight!

Love and Bomber cheers!

Re: Adam WEISSENFELS ('18) ~ 12/24/17 Tri-City Herald 

	"ALL-AREA FOOTBALL TEAM IS HERE. AWARDS ARE PILING
	UP FOR OUR TOP PLAYER"

	"It's been a good couple of months for Adam
	WEISSENFELS ('18).

	Throughout the process of helping the Richland
	High School football team win its first state
	title since 1999, the senior jack-of-all-trades
	was named the Mid-Columbia Conference's Defensive
	Player of the Year (in addition to a first-team
	defensive back and wide receiver, and second-team
	kicker), got picked for the (Tacoma) News
	Tribune's and Seattle Times' All-State teams, and
	on Friday was named the Associated Press 4A state
	player of the year.

	So, while the WEISSENFELS family is still busy
	adding shelves to its trophy display, let's throw
	another piece of hardware on to Adam's haul: He's
	the Tri-City Herald's All-Area football player of
	the year."

Congratulations, Adam!

Re: Christmas

Wishing you the gift of love, the gift of peace and the gift
of happiness this Christmas.
