Current News (08/11/2014):

Oh, my, gosh! I forgot to mention I have the 1961 Galion "Cub"! You will find the link to your 9th grade self on ths page! That would have been called "Junior High" back inthe day.


From Cynthia: 08/4/14:

Lenore BowdleCynthia Quay Paynter sent this to me July 10 to post:

"Thought you might enjoy a photo of Miss Bowdle that was taken when I visited her at her assisted living in Wooster. She is 94, and we still correspond and share a bond from the days when she was my violin teacher, as well as being our vocal music teacher before high school. She insists that I call her Lenore, but that took a while to get used to. She taught my sister, Chris, to play viola. We have good memories of music contests, operettas, and the community orchestra accompanying The Messiah. We used to meet at Bunn's Restaurant in Delaware for lunch. She has lost her hearing, and a stroke and arthritis made it necessary to give up her cute house in Wooster. She has not lost her ability for good conversation and a good chuckle. She told me she weighs 85 pounds. I could have picked her up and tossed her around. [Click on photo to enlarge]

Updated: November 25

I've just been doing some clean-up here. I was amazed to discover I had 50 broken links. I'm down to 34. Looking for anything you can't find? Found any broken links? Let me know. Thanks. Kathie.


"Our Music" Site:

Marilyn Redden Kirsch (Galion Class of '62) posted this on Facebook and I thought it would fit on here very nicely as well. If you want to browse through these pages while you listen to "remember when" music, just right click over the link and chose "open in new window" and you can do both ... listen and browse. Here's the link:

NOTE: The complete 1989 Memory Book has been scanned and uploaded from our 25th Reunion. Check it out.

Updated: April 20, 2010 Thanks, Jim McCalla! Jim sent me an e-mail, identifying himself in the South School 4th grade class photo. Thanks for visiting. I really appreciate your addition! Kathie
