TLC #40: June 16, 2002
& Gentle People:
Shall we be made
immortal? Shall we record our history for the generations that are to come?
Wouldn't you love to read letters like ours, from 100 years ago? Well
- with your help - it can happen for future generations. Please read the
interesting proposition below. (By the way, this would not be a commercial
venture. Any fees charged would be simply to cover expenses of printing,
postage, etc.) Let me know what you think! ...about anything.
Your devoted scribe,
Now, allow me to introduce my very good friend,
Marilou Edwards, wife of John R. '50
been married to a Lexington boy for 45 years, I have heard so
many wonderful stories of what it was like growing up in
Lexington. Anytime we were with one or more of John's
classmates the stories would start flowing. From these
stories I knew that Lexington kids shared a very special time
and place that is not found in other communities whether large
or small. And that everyone growing up in Lexington has a
story to tell.
rejuvenated so many of your childhood memories through
The Lexington Connection and we have
enjoyed reading all of them, but at some point we hit the delete
button and the memory then begins to again
would like to do is take your stories and memories and put them
in a printed form to keep forever. Won't your
grandchildren get a kick out of reading this? There will
be different categories/chapters, such as: Teachers,
School Events, Sports, Lexington Characters, Neighborhoods,
Tabo, Childhood Friends, etc., etc. The rest of the format
is still on the drawing board, as they
there are 39 editions of TLC to gathers stories from but that is
just a beginning. If you are interested in this project I
need more of your "Growing Up In Lexington" stories.
You can email directly to me, firstname.lastname@example.org or
will share more of your Lexington memories for posterity.
