Sharon Tincher (Scholl-Nabulsi)

Classmates:  FYI  The Boys and Girls track meet scheduled for April 25 at the FMHS track will be the Don Leach Memorial for the new track time clock. Our class donated $3,450 toward the clock. The Athletic Director and department is very grateful that we got the ball rolling to get a new clock. They can now hold bigger and better track meets with an authentic clock. Jill Leach, Don's wife and his three sons are coming for this dedication and I am inviting any and all of the Class of 1961 to attend. It begins at 3:30 and the dedication will be around 4:15. I know that they would appreciate some of us being there to honor their father. 

I'm hoping this finds you all happy and healthy. Oh, by the way, I fell down in our condo in Marco Island on Feb 1 and broke my right femur. I tripped over a throw rug and down I went. I had surgery on Feb 2 and then two months of therapy down in Florida and now I am home doing more therapy M-W-F.  I am still on a walker and hoping I throw it away in a week or two. A word of advice. Get rid of your throw rugs. Maybe by the track meet. 

As ever,

Sharon

Sharon, I feel your pain!  I had 2 back surgeries and a hip surgery in 18 months!  I am still walking with a cane and doing physical therapy and hoping to walk unassisted soon.  I went back to work 100% the beginning of this year and am in the best health I have been in 25 years!!

Sure hope there is a good turnout at the FMHS Track Meet to honor Don Leach, since Jill and their boys will be there !  The Class of 1961 should be proud of the funds raised to purchase a worthy track meet clock !!!

The photo of Jill and her three sons, Jason, Judd,and Doug and me sitting and watching the track meet. Next photo when the family and Jeff Lamb the AD telling the audience all about the banner and the time clock and the last photo is the time clock/

Don Leach  Memorial FYI:  The track meet that happened yesterday 4/25/23 at the FMHS track was the first home track meet in quite a number of years! The reason being that FMHS did not have a means of obtaining accurate times for all the track events! We can be very proud as a class to have provided the seed money for this new track timer! It will help the track kids and track program for years to come! Thanks to all who donated!

What a handsome group of octogenarians!  Or am I too early with that statement?

Is Fort Madison in danger of flooding?

Sandy Matthews,  Not to pick on you, but, I think you mean our 8th decade, not our 80th decade?  Some mornings I do believe I feel 800 years plus.  (Snicker, snicker)

Oh Dear Brad !  I hope Bill doesn't send me off to the Memory Cottage here at Cypress Glen because of my math error - thanks for the correction - although some mornings I creak and crack so much first getting myself moving, I think I'm about to enter into the Fossil Age !  And just for the record, my 80th birthday is not until December !!!!

Bill and are sorry to hear the news of Marcia Conley Davis's recent passing.  It was always evident how much she loved participating in our Class Reunions and attended most every one of them during these past 20+ years (as I remember ???)  Sharon Nabulsi, please correct me if I have this information wrong, but I believe it was Marcia's generous personality to have paid the "bar bill" for many of of our reunions.  She was a self made woman, starting and building a very successful accounting and tax business and loved sharing her good life with all of us !  We extend our deepest sympathy to her family.

Classmates: It's me again! I want to let you know that Sharon Philpott Haugen's brother Mike Philpott, age 77 passed away last Saturday, 8/26/23 in Arizona where he lived. She said she does not want any phone calls but since he was quite an athlete and played with some of our classmates she wanted you all to know! I have no details about his passing other than in the last few years he's had many health issues! If you feel like sending her a card I'm sure she would appreciate it! Sharon Haugen, 2200 Filmore Avenue, Ames, Iowa 50010! Please keep Sharon and her brother and their families in your prayers. May Mike Rest in Peace.

Thanks for letting us know about Mike Philpott - I remember Sharon speaking about his health issues.  She was so close to her sibling and am sure their family is grieving his passing.
