Grand River High School

50th Anniversary
May 29, 1988

May of 1988, our class of 1938 will be celebrating our 50th Year Alumni at the Grand River School Auditorium.

Twenty-one students met together in the Fall of 1934 to become a class. We classmates, except one, were all from the rural area and since our class was small it seemed as though we were just one happy family.

Some members of the Grand River High School Class of 1938 organized the first meeting of the Grand River Alumni in 1966. Each year since then all Alumni are invited and meet on Sunday of the Memorial Day weekend
for a basket dinner and meeting. These days have been spent reminiscing and renewing old friendships. Each class has served as officers of the Grand River Alumni picnic.

I am grateful to each of my classmates and friends for contributing to this class review. Hopefully, it will partially reacquaint each of us with our former classmates' history during these past fifty years and also will inspire each
of us to attend the annual Alumni Meetings.

Pet Peeve:People who only know you whenever they need a favor. 
A Surprising Moment:I was teaching at my home school (Brick #1) and at recess the weather was too messy to play outside. Small groups of students were playing various games, while others were drawing at the chalkboard, when a little first
grader looked up at me and said, "I wish I was Big like you!"

I thought, "Gee, even a little tot thinks I'm Big," so trying to change her way to thinking I asked, "Oh, do mean "grown-up', Hon?"

She nodded her head and with her big brown eyes twinkling she asked, "You know why?"

"No, really I don't. Why, Merna?"

"So I can have a BABY!" she hastily replied and began to laugh. What a relief -- we all laughed!

At that time I wasn't even married and needless to say a baby was from my mind.

(That little Sweetie was Rex and Hazel Davis' second daughter. Today she is a mother and perhaps a grandmother.)
Retirement Plans:I took early retirement from teaching the Spring of '82 since Mansel was retiring in the fall. We attended the World Fair at Knoxville, TN that fall and have spent winters in Florida (1986) and Texas (1987). We enjoy
traveling and sightseeing with our RV for we both love the Great Outdoors. Hopefully, we'll get to Ariz. next winter. And I still hopes of getting to Canada. Ha!
Memories of Grand River High School Seeing Supt. Sloan walk into the assembly made cold chills rush up and down my spine when I was a Freshman. Even though he walked the aisles with his head down pretending not to notice anything, believe me he knew
what was going on at all times. I can still hear his voice echo up the stairs when he caught a student misbehaving. But outside the classroom Sloan was a tease and lots of fun. He was a person I highly respected.

Do you remember, Verda, Margaret and Agnes when we along with Vera, Maurine and perhaps another graduate from G.R. attended summer school (1938) at Cedar Falls and our Supt. Sloan was operating a grocery
store close to campus. We'd stop in quite often to chat. One evening after closing the store he held a little party in our honor. What fun -- eating, laughing and reminiscing!!!
Favorite Subjects or Classes: Home Economics with Mrs. Switzer who taught me to eat Green Beans. Commercial Law with Supt. Sloan; Algebra and Agriculture with Mr. Barnhouse and English with Miss Graves, Peterson & Graham.
Subject or Class I Disliked:I really didn't dislike any of them, if I remember correctly. 
Favorite Teacher:Supt. Sloan & Mrs. Switzer 
Comments:I'll never forget Miss Gallagher in typ-class --- J-I-M SPACE, J-I-M SPACE. She'd repeat it again and again, while we typed it over and over. I'm sure she was thinking about Jim Carr, her escort at that time. Ha!

What fun we Seniors had during our skip week, picnicing (sic), driving around, decorating the Methodist Church for our graduation and just goofing off!

 Living 8 miles from Grand River and staying in town to go to school, getting back and forth when snow and rains had the roads (dirt) bad. My father taking horse and bobsled to meet me or take me to G.R. on Sundays for
school. Sometimes I'd walk several miles and pack clothes, too.

Margaret Chip was usually with me. She was like a sister.

Name: Venice I. West
Address:336 Lloyd Ave. #26
 Santa Barbara, CA 93101
After graduating I worked in Des Moines, Iowa and Omaha, Nebraska doing office work for several years before going to Boston.

While living the Boston area, I belonged to the Camera Club which enabled me to take a lot of trips with the Club, up the North and South Shores, which included Gloucester, Rockport and Marblehead on the North
Shores and on the South Shore (The Cape) we visited Plymouth, Sandwich, Falmouth, Hyannis and other places of interest. Then on separate trips we visited Nantucket Island and Martha's Vineyard.

One of my friends in the office in Boston owned a boat so he invited the office staff for a trip in his boat for an all day Saturday tour from Newport, R.I. to Block Island in the Block Island Sound.

While I was working in the East, my friend and I took a guided tour trip to Portugal and the Island of Madeira.

For several years, I worked in the Chicago area as a Nurse Aide.

After retiring I moved back to Omaha, Nebraska. And desiring to life in a climate where there wasn't such extreme weather conditions -- this lovely place in Santa Barbara, CA opened up for me. I live within walking
distance from downtown and the weather being such as it is we can get out and go whenever we want. I have taken a trip down the coast to San Diego since I've been here and want to take more trips up the north coast
and visit Portland and Seattle again.

Wishing the best to everyone in our class.
