January 2007 Newsletter - Alex McAllister YHS 1935

Alex McAllister (YHS 1935) came all the way over from WA for the reunion last March at Woorabinda.

He wrote: "I tried to catch your eye at the reunion but every time I looked, you were completely surrounded and appeared extremely involved. I was the only male of my year there, but I did meet with Myrtle O'Neill (Hattam) and her sister Jean Fox (Hattam), Eileen Mitchell (Kerr), Marg Ebsworth who was in the year below and Enid Mills, who was in the year above.

On the Tuesday following the reunion, my wife Prue, myself and Eileen Mitchell drove down to Mornington and visited Martin Hardie - he and Rex Bowman are the only two males I know of who were in the class. The photograph of the two thorns and the rose on the settee was taken at Martin's...the 'now & then'. After we returned home, we took off in the caravan for 2 weeks and now we are getting ready to head off for Broome, where we spend the 2 1/2 month Perth winter. Once again thanks for all your work in organising the reunion and maybe we will meet at the next one.
