GENEALOGY - YOUR FAMILY TREE

Our ancestors set forth on this land from countries around the globe, bringing with them traditions and languages indigenous to their motherland. To pay homage to those who came before us from time immemorial, it behooves us to honor their memory. We can do so by engaging the interest of our grandchildren and great grandchildren while reminding ourselves of the greatest legacy we could ever pass on to our loved ones -- the Family Tree.

Begin by developing dialogue while introducing generations to their heritage through photos, facts and discussion. Especially useful, and emotionally-enriching, is the inter-generational interview, giving our elders a canvas to paint a panoramic image of loved ones gone but not forgotten. What an idea! What an experience!

With a legacy such as this, no family member is ever forgotten and all, alive or deceased, live on, forever in our hearts.

To Family!

VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME. Giving back to your community can be very rewarding. In one recent study, a whopping 94% of people reported that volunteering lifted their mood. And that's not all. More than three-quarters also said that volunteering made them feel healthier overall. So when you help others, you just might help yourself too. Courtesy of UHC.

Are you ready, willing and able to give yourself to a good cause? Tell me about your experience and skills and I'll tell you how we can best apply them to the TJHS Class of '61 and our goals. A rewarding volunteer job may be in your immediate future. Email ThomasJeffersonHS1961@gmail.com

TJHS ALUMNI ASSOCIATION We've only begun to whet your appetite with news and delectable photo and video hors d'oeuvres of our 1961 classmates. If you're ready for the main course, please consider a yearly membership in the TJHS Alumni Association. You'll receive Alumni newsletters filled with personal stories, tributes, reunion info...and much more...all mailed to your home...for a membership fee that is more economical than five cups of java that won't last as long as the written word.

How much? you ask. Only $10 per year (to help defray the cost of printing, postage and handling).

Stu Rothstein will mail a membership application to your home. The application when completed should include (1) your full name (maiden name of ladies); (2) complete mailing address including apartment number and zip+4; (3) your phone number; (4) your e-mail address; and (5) month/year of graduation. Refer to Stu's profile for his e-mail address when you sign in.

Your dessert will be many happy classmates thrilled to reunite with you at our upcoming reunions. Your memories are everlasting only when preserved.
