Class of 1974 from Ken Beck: Wow. I cannot believe it has been 40
years (yes, I said 40) since the class of 1974 graduated. As some of
you know, I have been trying to put together a small reunion for our
class. I have done most of this on Facebook. This reunion will be
held at our Homecoming dinner on November 8th at the American Legion in Chambersburg. Information about the dinner is in this newsletter. As I have said before in previous newsletters, I am not going to beg you to come. What I would like is for my classmates of ‘74 to consider coming to this dinner if for no other reason to rekindle old friendships. If you know of anyone from the class of ‘74, please tell them to contact me. My email address is on the page with officers listed. I would also like to state that this reunion is “not”
just for those that graduated. This is for anyone that went to Scotland School and would have been in the class of ‘74. So please think about joining us on November 8th. We would love to see you. I know I would. Thanks for taking the time to read this and hope to see a lot of you there. Thanks, Ken Beck

Rev. Jerry and Sharon Logan: Many thanks to Rev. Jerry and Sharon Logan for hosting the July 26th picnic and for their efforts to have the best site at Caledonia State Park, a great spread of food and paper essentials as well as door prizes. About 25 alumni, staff and friends of SSVC attended the picnic. If anyone left and didn’t have enough to eat, it was their own fault! Thanks again to the Logans for the special time together!
