Fellow Nerk Baby Boomers. I trust those who attend the reunion will share their journeys and hopefully, not too many Organ Recitals (whick organs like the kidneys and liver and such that are wearing out). My life jouneys have mostly been outside of the USA. I really enjoyed our 25th reunion. My focus is on consulting our great American military and families on identifying new jobs after they leave the military. My avocation is helping internation missionaries fulfill their mission goals of Helping Others in the Name of Jesus. We have active projects throughout the Far and South East Asia. If any are in this area, please contact me at 01182117198020. My email is BRIDGER46@HOTMAIL.COM Hoping to make 50th Reunion Grace and Peace, Chris Vaia

School Story:

Little football, lot of Choir, lots of weekend Happy Day type adventures with our Fonzy - Kerri Ricker. Roller Rink and Flint Ridge and Lovers Lane and Buckeye Lake and Eagles and East end and dreams of what lies beyond NERK.

Hello Pam We hope you and Gary are healthy and still enjoying an unending honeymoon. I have lived overseas over 40 years and we are currently in the Republic of Korea. We enjoyed a 3 month vacation to the States and a nice visit with my cousin Dan in Nerk (old school) So, we love to hear about what your joys you both share. Grace and Peace Chris and Sally in the ROK

Greetings Kay from the Republic of Korea (ROK.) We got to meet some ladies of our 64 Class recently at my cousin's Dan Family Pizza. I have been overseas over 40 years and we're planning to do a little like Bobbie - live in Navarre FL primarily and the ROK from April-June. I imagined you went the Educator or Public Servant route. Did I get it? We enjoyed the Town Square and saw my old Central Junior High is now apartments. If you ever make it to our neck of the world, we love to show you some wonderful places in the Land of the Morning Calm. Grace and Peace, Chris and Eun Young (Sally) PS I intend to be more active on Classmates like my sister - Bobbie. The picture is of our small balloon twisting ministry. This shows how a 30 year Army Veteran can successfully transition into civilian life. LOL

Greetings Charles Just read a post by you. We had similar backgrounds wit the military, I got drafted in 67 and liked being a hero and stayed 30 years. I lived over 40 years overseas. I have lived over 30 years and we are looking at Navarre FL for future home. I have many friends living in Angeles.I imagine your home is a lot classier. My wife and I are blessed to be involved in Christian ministries in Far and South East Asia. It is a much more edifying life than my High School and Army years. We got to meet some of the Nerk ladies. I didn't get any pictures so if some see this message please send. Hope to here from you.Grace and Peace Chris and Sally

Greetings Mike, Wishes for a healthy and peaceful birthday and life. We will most likely leave Korea around November this year. I figure after about 45 years overseas that it is time to experience life in the US. We are strongly considering Navarre FL. Did you get a metal detector to find valuable metals on the beach after you retired? You may be like me and droping the word retired and embracing encore experience. LOL The selling point for us was a butterfly farm in Navarre. I can see a possible position as the Balloon Brother. The picture is an example of our small charitable visit ministry. Grace and Peace, Chris and Eun Young (Sally) the good looking lady on my right.

Chris Vaia has a birthday today.

Birthday greetings from the Republic of Korea. Do you have an encore performance after retiring
My wife is an Evagelist and we partner with fellowships who Help Others in the Name of Jesus. If.my math is good, you and Gary have over 50 years of marriage. Amazing for Graduates in the 60s. Grace and Peace Chris and Eun Young (Sally)
