Personal/family interests:

I enjoy reading, volunteering, perusing cookbooks, and card-making (I know--not very exciting). Ben and I love traveling, especially to national parks; spending time with grandchildren; getting together with friends; singing in church choir; and attending concerts.

School Memories you would like to share:

Music has played an important role in my life. This was especially true during high school years. Concert Band with Mr. VanderPuy was the best; the rehearsals, concerts, festivals, and trips brought much enjoyment. Noontime "recitals" by Ken Medema were also memorable.

I'm grateful for the wonderful group of friends I met while at GRCHS; our friendships continue, and we still gather a few times a year.
