THANK YOU VETERANS
This weekend and always we remember the brave men and women who have served in our nation's armed forces and made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms. As we enjoy time with friends and family, let us not forget their memories.

TO THOSE CELEBRATING MAY BIRTHDAYS
For many of you this is a milestone birthday year! What a blessing to have lived so long. May you create more good memories, and increase in wisdom as you reflect on your lives.
THOUGHTS ON TURNING 80
"This is the point in the journey where a decent person turns inward. Old age is the pause that God gives us to reflect on what we've done and what we've left undone. And above all, to ponder where we might be going next. It's a time to think about the fate of one's soul, asking the pressing questions: 'What's the point of all of this? Is all we have merely a yawning void or is there more?'" ~ author unknown

ATTENTION - Paly Veterans et al: Hoping you can provide some additional information for this Paly senior who has done a yeoman's job researching and gathering photos and articles for his book. If you're interested in contacting him, you can use the Contact Us form and I'll send you his email address or for those who have my email address, contact me directly.
Many thanks in advance for being willing to help this student out. Pam
My name is Harvey Vostrejs. I am currently a senior at Paly, and am working on a book about Paly students who gave their lives during war, specifically WW2, Korea and Vietnam. I would love to hear some personal stories from alumni who experienced these times. Click on the link below to give it a look!
Thanks so much, Harvey Vostrejs
