Jimmy Akin suffered a fall here and was operated on at Vanderbilt for bleeding on the brain.   He is now recovering at NHC Place, 211 Cool Springs Blvd., Room 1205, Franklin, TN  37067 .  Lucy (Albree) Levitan sent an email greeting to the class.  She is visiting with sister-in-law in Huntington Beach, CA this week.  She was enjoying a break from her home in frigid Minnesota. She asked for supportive healing thoughts and prayers for her 48 y/o daughter, Lara Levitan, who is undergoing chemotherapy.  Attendance at this meeting was smaller than usual. Jim Warmbrod is in Israel this week and serveral regulars were sick. If you are current on our email list you should have received the news that our classmate, Libby Cash, is one of 5 candidates to be drafted into the Jackson/Madison County Sports Hall of Fame in April.  If any classmates are interested in attending there will be a sit-down meal and induction ceremonies at the Civic Center on April 18.  Tickets will be $60/person or $50/person if you reserve a table for 8.  We think that several of Libby's old classmates and team mates will want to attend.  We voted to donate $100 from our '61 class to the All Years Alumni fund for the June '18 event.  Extra money after expenses will go to Madison Academic  School.  This year they will need new entrance rugs.  There was some discussion on whether we wanted to have our 75th birthday party as our class event during the yearly Alumni Reunion and what form it should take.  Not enough class interest had been shown in Becky Webb's offer of a 75th birthday venue since it involved travel time from Jackson.  Expect to hear more about the birthday soon.  Next monthly meeting will be Feb 15th.
