Whassup people!

Please tell your friends (classmates) to tell a friend about our new website. Thanks to Marcella Milner, Vic McKenzie and Lydia Ortiz, we are up and running. We plan to use this as a communication medium to inform our classmates about events and reunion planning.

Speaking of events, I spoke to Shawn Bell the other day about putting together a "Battle of the DJs" at the West Indian Club, reminiscent of the old days when many of us had to get rides from our parents to get to the club so we could dance to the drummer's beat. Remember Preston Hall doing the moonwalk at the West Indian Club? I'm talking about IGM and Funk Control for those of you who have forgotten.

In any event, we're just bouncing the idea around at this point. I'll keep you all posted.

Happy Inauguration Day!! U gotta love President Obama for his confidence, intelligence and soulfoul swagger. Move on Black Man move on!!

If you would like to be a part of the planning for our next reunion please send me an email. This is a great
forum to exhange thoughts and ideas. If anyone has a
picture of our 1981 Weaver Beaver, please email it to me. Thanks Vic

Well said Wanda.

With the help of our corporate officers and staff members such as Wanda Vinters Jones, the creation of this company has been and will continue to be a labor of love and dedication.

Our new president has outlined the three major areas of focus for his administration. Energy, Health Care and Education. It is now time for individuals, community leaders and grass-root organizations such as Street Sweepers Inc. to get involved and stay involved in the push for better schools.

Weaver is on the chopping block. Lets add helping Hartfords youth to our legacy.

If you have any questions, ideas or comments you can e-mail me at or on this forum.

I am the Vice Chairman and COO for Street Sweepers,Inc.

Tina Lloyd here, most of you will remember me as Tina Thomas. I like Lloyd better........(smile). Lots to say short on time, wanted all to know I'm still alive and kicking,living in North Carolina. I'll be checking in.

I continued cheering right through college, don't have as big of a mouth anymore, however I can still do a split.

Go Tina...................

Thanks Muff for letting me know about the website.

Dear Classmates:

It is time to begin to plan for our next class reunion! Can you believe that next year it will have been 30 years since our graduation from Weaver High? Wow!

Next year, we plan to join forces with the class of 1982 and take a fantastic voyage to one of the islands. If you are interested in being a part of the planning committee, please respond to this message with your email address and phone number. Your participation is needed, wanted and welcomed...SO STEP UP! We need to do several things initially:

- Put together a committee with officers from each class
- Poll classes to gauge interest in the cruise
- Meet with a travel agent(s)to discuss cost and event details
- Plan a series of fundraisers and get togethers to reduce overall cost
- Set the date for an initial meeting. This will take place on March 12th or 13th.

I'm interested in your questions, comments and/or concerns. Please send them to me and I will respond to them either on an individual basis or to the entire mailing list if appropriate.

Let's get this party started!!!

I think we should do something locally for those that don't swim and then cap it off with one of those cruises out of NYC that go out to sea for about 2 or three days of more partying

Pauline Virgo (Wilson)

Hey Guys,

Pauline Wilson(Virgo), putting in her two cents.  Cruise idea is fabulous, but I dont like being on the water especially with all of the sickness breakouts and people dissapearing and the war climate the way it is. I would love to do things more locally.  I also have a son starting college this month finances are tight.  

Anyhow keep the message board rolling !!

Hello to the Class of 1981. Thanks so much Victor for starting off this conversation regarding our "40th" class reunion. I don't know about y'all but that sounds crazy as heck to me, 40 years...WOW lol. Well a few of us have been conversing on setting a date to discuss what's next in planning for our 40th reunion. We have a 4 year window to raise funds to lower the cost for whatever we decide to do. The key word we have to remember in moving forward is "consistent". We have to be consistent to be successful with our planning ideas. We have an AWESOME team in place and we invite any Weaver Beavers that is ready to work to join us. If interested, please respond to the survey Victor has created on this site for our convenience (thanks Victor).  Thank you Marcela for making this site possible. Our Committee Members are:  Rhonda (Whitt) Johnson, Victor McKenzie, Rosa Billington, Sharon Manns, Gina McCrory, James (Jimmy) Harris, Janice (Day) Mickles, Jeffrey (Muff) 

Johnson, Marcela Milner, David Scruse and Darryl Thames. Please feel free to communicate with us on this site or inbox us on FB. I believe most of us cld be found on FB. Committee planning dates will be posted soon.  It's been a pleasure and I look forward in growing our committee and from hearing from each of you. *Blessing Class of 1981*
