The holiday has origins in the Roman festival of Lupercalia, held in mid-February. The festival, which celebrated the coming of spring, included fertility rites and the pairing off of women with men by lottery. At the end of the 5th century, Pope Gelasius I replaced Lupercalia with St. Valentine's Day. Well, that doesn't sound all that romantic to me, lol. But we do it anyway.
I have another thing to share with all who want truth at this time of our history. This concerns the new covid vaccine. The link is to a video that I believe everyone needs to watch, Christian or not. I pray it reaches ears that are open to God's truth. It's totally true, right and so important for all to know:
The Liberty High School, Class of '67, 50th Reunion was a huge success! A big 'thank you' goes out to all who attended. The Reunion Committee members felt that all our efforts were worth it! Everyone had a great time and the display's that were set up had a steady stream of classmates gazing at pictures and items brought in by other classmates. The room was filled with chatter and laughter as people reconnected with classmates they hadn't seen in 50 years! I believe we will carry many warm memories with us for years to come from this milestone event.
Other thanks goes out to our guest speaker, Gary Lavelle for sharing his heart with us. Many will carry those words home with them. Thanks to John Bereuter for his help in setting up and tearing down. He also contributed many pieces of memorabilia to our display table. Thanks John. You've got the gift of helps.
And last, but not least, a huge thank you goes to our tour guide, John Quigley, and Liberty High School, for allowing us to see the new renovations made to our ole' Alma Mater. It was fun. We were so impressed with the new additions and changes made to so many areas of the campus. The cafeteria was amazing and the pool ...wow! I wanted to jump in and take a swim, lol.
All things do come to an end and even though it's over, the memories we took with us from this weekend will warm our hearts for a long time to come. Stay connected to this website for future events, maybe even before 5 more years :)
There are pictures of the 10th, 35th, 40th and 50th reunions as well as many other additions from classmates on the "Photo Albums" webpage and some on the "Class Reunions" page. Visit them to see who you may know or remember. Don't forget to update your profile or post your own pics and current photos. We love to see how everyone is doing!
