Jo’s Jottings: Homecoming brings RHS grads back to town for some good times

By Jo Ellen Dale

Mary (Throne)  Boyce, a cousin of Billie Hamann and June Harrison, was in Kansas City recently to attend a Legislative Leadership Conference.  She lives in Cheyenne, Wyo. While here she attended the United Christian Presbyterian Church service and enjoyed visiting with other family members before returning home Sunday afternoon.

I would like to remind all members of the Allen-Morton-Watkins Chapter of DAR that the October meeting has been changed to Wednesday, Oct. 9 to accommodate the schedule of our speaker, Congressman Ike Skelton.  The meeting will be held at the United Methodist Church instead of the Farris Theatre as stated in the yearbook.

Natalie Lamar, director of the Richmond Chamber of Commerce, tells me that there is a great need for ambassadors (volunteers) at the chamber.  I am there on Tuesday mornings and I find it very interesting, so if you are looking for a way to contribute something to Richmond I urge you to contact Natalie at 776-6916.

A group of old friends gathered for an enjoyable luncheon, good conversation, and remembering old times at Richmond High School at the 19th Hole restaurant Friday before the homecoming parade. Those in attendance were: Lynn Farris McCoullough and Neal McCoullough, Janelle Lamb Criscione, Jane Jones Hellmann and Joe Hellmann, Carol Farris, Barbara Farris Embree and Jack Embree, Jean McGraw Clark and John Clark, Nancy Jones, Patsy Embree Class and Don Class and Patsy Macey.

I had house guests over the weekend who came to celebrate with me for being placed on the Wall of Honor at Richmond High School and to visit with Jane and Joe Hellmann, who are in town from Texas for Jane’s high school reunion.  My guests were my daughter-in-law Liz Dale from Rogers, Ark., my son Chuck Dale,  my grandson Jeff Dale from Columbia and Dr. Lluis Planas from Wauconda, Ill.

Sunday we all gathered at the home of Ernie and Nancy Jones for dinner at noon.  Also there were many other relatives and in-laws from the ages of 2 to 88 years.  I was flattered to be called the “matriarch” of the clan.  As the weather was perfect, we spent the rest of the afternoon and into the evening visiting and reminiscing while the children rode various vehicles and had a great time.

Monday, Oct. 7, the District Golf Tournament will be held at Shirkey Golf Course,  with both the Richmond and Orrick High School teams represented. Let’s hope that the beautiful weather will remain making it easier for the teams to compete.

I look forward to hearing from more of you this week. DaleDbdale@aol.com
