I just got a phone call about Mary Lib's father passing away early this a.m. I understand that Bryan Lee is handling things, but the obituary will not be in the paper until tomorrow. Just wanted to give you a heads up. For those of you who don't know Mr. Rohrbaugh, he is former mayor of Garner and retired from the DOT as a civil engineer. If I remember correctly, he went to Univ. of Tennessee. Mrs. Rohrbaugh was the guidance secretary when we were in school. Cathy and Richard are their other children and sympathy to the whole clan!
Here is Mr. Rohrbaugh's obit from today's N&O...visitation tonight from 5-8 at Bryan Lee in Garner.
Hey there! Believe it or not we should begin planning our next reunion this spring. In the meantime, please tell your classmate friends to join our FACEBOOK page. Garner Senior HS Class of 1981 (had to change the name because we got so many Grimsley, etc. trying to hone in on us!). We have 89 members now and I know we had about 375 in our class!
I know everyone isn't into reunions or reconnecting, but I really want everyone to have the option to attend. If you can help by spreading the word about FACEBOOK, that will go a long way to helping us get the word out!
5/19/2009: From Sherry O'Neal I just realized that we need to start planning another reunion NEXT YEAR! I think it will be easier to communicate through Facebook group than how we have in the past to make sure everyone is included. E-mail and addresses (and names!) change a lot, but if we are members of the group, we can find each other when the time comes.
