Flower Fund

Thanks to Sherry for setting up the new address and always keeping us connected. I'm grateful she has expanded the role of "projects director" to include "communications officer"! I'm sure she could use support with the web page, so if you have experience and time, let her know!!

The most recent project Sherry has coordinated is the sending of messages of sympathy from the Class of 81. We have chosen to send a wreath, other floral arrangement or family requested donation when a class mate passes away and a card to the class mate when they lose a spouse or parent. Originally, we paid for this from the regular Class of 81 reunion fund and accepted donations to cover the cost after purchase. Because of concerns this could quickly deplete our reunion fund, I have now set up a "flower fund" and will manage it separately from our reunion money. If you are interested in seeing any of the class financial spreadsheets, let me know.

Thank you to everyone who has already donated to the flower fund!! I am always inspired by the generosity and willingness to share of our class mates! Any future donations can be made payable to GSHS Class of 1981 and sent to me at 6220 Rock Quarry Road, Raleigh 27610.

If you hear of any deaths, have any suggestions about what to send or if you would like to handle the purchase of flowers or sending of a card just let Sherry know! We have an account at Garner florist, so the invoice is mailed to me and paid from the class funds.

I hope you all have a wonderful summer. Stay safe and lets not need to use the flower fund for a loooooonnnnnnngggggg time!!

Warmly, Donna Wilkinson Hardin

Welcome to the GSHS Class of 1981 Blog

Welcome to the first posting.....tell our classmates. This blog will be a way for everyone to post (I think) what is going on with them.

I'm still working on collecting accurate e-mail addresses from everyone.

See the message above that I posted from Donna Wilkinson Hardin - our treasurer!
