All School Reunion is here
By Nathan French
A famous quote on the topic of forgetting by Friedrich Nietzsche goes “The advantage of a bad memory and forgetting a lot is that every experience is a new one.” As for me, forgetting is a daily occurrence. Whether it be where I placed the car keys, or what time I am supposed to be where, forgetting is commonplace for me. I often see others who also forget; whether it is forgetting to wear matching shoes or letting a nearing event slip their mind, and employing the “I simply forgot” excuse. Well fellow connoisseur of convenient forgetting, our excuse will not work this year for the All School Reunion because this piece is serving as a reminder.
The 2009 All School Reunion is happening! Registration begins today from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Lakeview Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, and continues tomorrow from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Rita Blanca Coliseum. The Dalhart Ex-Students Organization has planned a great reunion for all attendees, and a good time is sure to be had. We have included a special tabloid insert in today’s newspaper celebrating the
2009 All School Reunion. This year’s tabloid is dedicated to a courageous former Dalhart Wolf, Sgt. David A. Davis, who gave his life in protecting our freedoms.
We would like to welcome all former Wolves to town and extend a warm thanks for making time to reminisce with others in a common past. We all share a common color of purple and gold; a color that unites us in memories, in good times, and in a worthwhile past.
Also, I caution you on employing the “I simply forgot” excuse for not attending your reunion. Why not attend, and use the “I simply forgot” excuse for more dire times like when Kathy, your high school arch nemesis, saunters up too you, state to her, “Well I simply forgot that you were in my class, for some reason I have always thought you were much older than I.” See isn’t that a better use of forgetting? We will see you there. And p.s. don’t forget.
