Weekend Update (with Jane Clifford, not Jane Curtin)

A few people have asked about dress code for the reunion. Well, suffice it to say, ladies, we won’t have any of you kneeling down in the hall to be sure your skirt touches the floor and, guys, if your hair touches the back of your collar, that’s OK, too. Bottom line, the whole weekend is “beach and/or dressy casual” but, unlike our BK days, you get to decide what to wear.

PJ (Pam) Murray Wetherhold

Hello everyone
Very sad news to report. Pam (PJ) Murray Wetherhold died last week. She and I knew each other since our days competing on opposing teams in swim meets from elementary to high school. If you knew Pam, you know how valiantly she fought for her life. She was a ferocious woman with a heart of gold, who will be deeply missed. For those of you who can make it, there will be a Celebration of Life next Friday, March 18, from 2-5 p.m. at Seachasers, 831 1st St N.
Jacksonville Beach, Florida 32250
The service will be followed by a beach procession and a party until 5.

Got pix?

Hi everyone …
Just got some new “historical” photos that I thought you might enjoy.
The one of Jane Clifford and Chris Barry is from Chris’ collection. We were on the playground at St. Paul’s in Riverside.
The next two Chris sent are from Lizanne Corrigan Bomhard’s old photos and feature her, Chris, Janet Huffman and Linda Musco DuBois. Just looking at those Kenny skirts made me itchy.
If you have old photos you can scan and email to me, I’m happy to put them up on the site. Just be sure to tell me who’s in them since we’ve all changed (just a little) over the years.
Jane Clifford
