Congratulations Reggie Hall on the birth of your 1st Grandson born yesterday on Sunday, October 13, 2013.

I know that you all were scared to death when your daughter had the baby in the car in the Parking lot of the hospital. So glad that the Doctor and Nurses ran out to the Parking Lot to help with the delivery.

God is so....  good; I was so glad to hear that Mommy and her sweet baby boy (7lbs. & 1 oz.) are doing just fine!!

Congratulations again to all of you & God bless!!

Love and Blessings, Phoebe

P.S. My Son & Your Son is excited as well. He is now a 1st time Uncle. Please tell Lauren if she & baby needs anything else please feel free to let me know. Take good care!!

We enjoyed your presence at the 2nd Annual Alumni Picnic yesterday and at the After Party event. We look forward to seeing you again next year at the 3rd Annual Picnic (for those who can make it). Big thanks to our out-of-town Classmates who were able to come out (Larry Williams : Arkansas, Lozando Washungton : Washington, Michael Celestine : Arizona, Lester Rhodes : Nevada, Herbert Wadsworth : Nevada, Michael Washington : Nevada and whomever else that I may have missed. Please charge it to my head and not my heart). Our next c/o '75 Class Reunion event will be in 2015 and I am the spearhead & chairperson of the 2015 "40TH YEAR" event. The planning for our 2015 Reunion will take place next year. I will keep everyone posted as well as the 2015 Committee members who already signed on to this event (don't worry I'll remind you all).

***To see the rest of the photos go to the Centennial High Alumni.com website. If you're not a member feel free to sign up; it's free. Thanks!!***

Love and Blessings, Phoebe
