11/30/07:  Today, we were given several yearbooks that were found stored at the school - including a 1961 Patriot with this "way cool" artwork, covering the entire inside cover page.  It's signed by, then sophomore, Steve Nance.


We recently acquired a 1963 Patriot yearbook that had some bonus items tucked inside.  One of these unexpected treasures was the program from
the all school production of "Oklahoma" performed at Hale that year.

Watch for more bonus items - coming soon!


We just received a box full of the old Ranger basketball game scorebooks from Coach Wally Knapp.  We're in the process of scanning them to add to the new Ranger Sports Archive section of the web site.

The 1962-63 Hale Invitational Basketball Tournament is the first one that is available.



Received from Sara Friels-Davenport, 8/27/07 -
I am ready to get together again.  Linda Jones-Traw is ready too.  She just called me a few weeks ago and just wants to have a dinner and some music playing.

My husband and I just have a small business and I work with him and then do what I can around the house and yard.  I just had a total hip replacement in early June (2007) that I am still getting over, but our class still has lots of money to get started with. Hope we can have a 45th sometime in 2008!  Sara

Please contact Sara, if you can help with the plans for a class get-together next year.
