She added the following from Jenny (Joanis) Lawrence, in turn from a GoFundMe appeal from Brian's sister. "Hello, I am Brian's sister Ashley. On Saturday Nov. 18, 2023, we received a call that Brian was in a trailer fire and had to be transferred to a burn unit in Las Vegas NV due to his severe burns that consumed over 30% of his body. He will be in the burn unit for 3-5weeks... [He had been struggling, and...] with this sudden accident, he is left without anything again. All of his clothes, personal belongings and trailer he lived in are gone. Now having to start all over again. Brian has received skin grafting to his whole face and back so far, now waiting for arms chest and hands. He is in good spirts for the most part but is worried about the medical bills that will be coming. We are asking for any donations to help with the medical bills and clothes he will need in the next 3-5weeks."
Martha and I will continue to plan our annual seven day Mexican Riviera Cruise for travel mid-October to mid-November. We will schedule our cruise by February 15,2024. This will not be a group reservation. It will not be a reunion cruise. Just to give you an idea of cost for this trip we paid $1,500. For both of us plus taxes. I don’t yet know the 2024 prices. If you are possibly interested Message me and I will give you our travel dates and who our agent is.
Happy Thanksgiving to all
Thanks to Hector Hernandez, plans are in the works for a fun 4-day Temple City High School Reunion Cruise next year! The 4-day cruise would leave from Long Beach with stops at Catalina and Ensenada.
Hector needs a tentative head count in order to move forward with plans and to get a group discount and on-board perks. Through Facebook we have about 25 people so far interested in going. A “yes” doesn’t obligate you to go, but let’s him know that you really hope to go.
A date hasn’t been set yet, but we’re shooting for sometime in July-October 2024. The cost is approximately $350 per person, which includes your stateroom, all on-board food and entertainment. Secure parking is about $20 per day.
Other friends and family members are welcome and ALL CLASSES are welcome as well. The more people who go the more perks we get!! Send an email to Martha Hernandez at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, your email address and number of people in your party so we can keep you updated with the details.

Some time back, a friend of TCHS, Lisa Moore, wrote
We've leapt to the conclusion that Pat was in the class of 1951 and that this drawing honors the TC Jr. High team of 1950-51, before the creation of TCHS. These players might have been a mixture of PHS and TCHS graduates a few years later. Dauer's drawing adopts the Disney-style seven dwarfs of Snow White as the linemen and adds additional players of the time.
The file we received is a single 8.5 X 11 inch PDF at web resolution, which we have reproduced as a JPEG at 300 dip resolution for printing. The version in this article is of lower resolution for web transmission. With what we take to be Lisa's permission we will make both the larger files available on request as a Zip file approximately 12Mbytes in size, delivered by email. No assertiion of copyright is included on the drawing or stated by Ms. Moore; we are unable to contact Mr. Dauer.
If you are interested in Lisa's offer, please use our Contact form at the bottom of any page, and we will notify her.

The part near the student was hinged and our books went inside; another version just had a shelf underneath the writing surface. For writing class, we would go to the closet, get our little bottle of ink and a pen, which we would use very carefully to avoid getting the indelible ink on our clothes. This was no small trick, as the rubber stoppers would often commit suicide by leaping from the desktop to the floor, for which we were punished as accessories before the fact, since the India ink would stain the old wooden floors.
Suffice it to say that few of us became calligraphers, but all of us were thrilled at the advent of the ballpoint pen somewhere around fifth grade.
When the old 1920s Longden School was demolished in the early 70s, some of the old desks were still on site. One of them escaped going to the dump by accidentally falling into the trunk of a close relative's car and has been awaiting restoration in my garage ever since. It has cast iron legs that support one desk and the attached chair that originally accommodated the child nearer the teacher. The front-most position had no forward seat. Needs rust removal and some loving treatment of hinges and woodwork. At 80 I've given up on being that restorer. Any volunteers? It would make a great donation to the history museum.
PS: It will occur to the most observant readers that left-handed children had a high propensity for dragging their sleeves through their work while dipping their pens in the inkwell, which of course were placed at right as God intended.
