LAHS LIONS ALUMNI NEWSLETTER
August 23, 2003

THE REAL NEWSLETTER IS ATTACHED TO THIS MESSAGE

These are just a few extra notes that supplement the spectacular newsletter that Debbie Holloway Corrigan '76 created for us this summer. About 550 thanks (the number of newsletters that we distribute) are due to Debbie for her exceptional work, and also for her infinite patience with all the little (and sometime big) edits and revisions that were requested. (Sound of 1,100 hands clapping!!!)

You need Adobe Acrobat to view the attached newsletter. Try viewing the attachment, and then if it does not appear, go to www.adobe.com and download the latest version of Acrobat. It's well worth it. Print the newsletter in color for a real treat!


RSVP FOR THE 2003 LAHS REUNION ONLINE

Not knowing for sure how many are attending the reunions and when they will be there has always been a problem for the reunion committees. The best reference is usually the reservation list at the hotel, but often people are not added to the hotel reunion list for various reason when the reservation is made. In addition, there are always alumni just driving in for the day from their local homes, and they obviously wouldn't be on the hotel's list. This year we are going to try something new, a RSVP service on the web.

So when you receive a message from Sendomatic.com (funky name, huh?) in a week or so, please log on and RSVP yes or no for the reunion. And be sure to leave a comment including when you will arrive and depart so we can plan the food and drink for the various days. There will be a button so you can see comments that other alumni have left, and also who is attending.

Local license plates to replace AFI plates
Are these cars parked at a shopping center in Aviano, Italy, owned by Americans or Italians? Thanks to recent efforts by military officials, it's pretty hard to tell. Most soldiers stationed in Italy are now driving with Italian plates on their vehicles. And hundreds of airmen will soon join them. In a few months, Allied Forces In-ternational license plates in Italy might just become collector's items.  More:

Peppy Pisa party for American cheerleaders
Just about everything has been suggested or tried to stop any further tilting by the Tower of Pisa. Thus it was that one sunny Saturday morning, an off day in the football schedule, the Leghorn Lions' cheerleaders staged a Pisa pep rally . In all the glory of their green-and-white school colors, the girls led tourists and townspeople in rousing cheers of "hold that lean!" More:
