05/27/17 - The following note has been received from Ron Knipp:

Name: Ron Knipp

Comments: OK, here we go again, and I'll keep asking. How can we help support this website? You and Charlie do a wonderful job keeping us informed and up-to-date with info about our classmates. I haven't heard about the cost or who's paying for it, but the cost should be shared. How can we contribute?

Your note came at the right time. Charlie and I were getting ready to ask for contributions to cover website renewal and room rental for the fall picnic. If classmates would like to contribute, please send checks, payable to Judy McCoy, at 2621 Moore Street, Ashland, KY 41101-3909. Thank you. (Please do not make checks payable to Class of 1958.)
