a few more shots of the progress on the new river park bridge.
Harvey Linden is at it again! Check out the vintage photo she posted on
goodbye to an old Goldfield landmark...
For those of you coming back to visit us in Goldfield this summer, please
pardon our construction. The River park bridge has been removed to make
way for a new larger bridge with a ten foot walkway. The project should
be completed by early fall pending good weather. I know that this old
bridge probably brings back lots of memories for a lot of you. Feel free
to post them on the Bulletin Board by clicking on this: Bridge
Valentine's Day Alumni!!
I mentioned something about getting together
an alumni count by state the last time I checked in with all of you. Well
here it is. The states where we have alumni actively living are highlighted
in red and have a head count shown. Just click on the image below to view
the full size map. Enjoy!!!
a reminder, don't forget to check the Bulletin
Board for announcements regarding class reunions and other events.
Alumni! When Alan and I set out to create this site a couple years back,
one of our goals was to be able to help our fellow alumni stay connected
or get re-connected with each other. As you can see by browsing through
the class pages, our classmates are scattered all across the United States.
At some point, I think I'll have to try to figure out what the alumni
count is for each state and post it here on the site.
We recently got a note from Charlotte Linden sharing some of her experiences
re-connecting with a few fellow alumni and she was gracious enough to
let us share her story with you...
Brett and Alan,
I want to thank you for all that you two have done with the Goldfield
Alumni website and share with you that it has opened the doors to past
friendships and new friendships. The classmates page has been a wonderful
source for me. I must tell you of two of my experiences.
Eric & I live in Tucson and in California. We go to Tucson frequently
to help our son, a single parent, when his children have school breaks.
When we were there this fall, I decided to look on the classmates pages
and see if any other Goldfield graduates lived in Tucson. I found that
Ray Brazee from the class of 1949 lived in Tucson so I looked up his address
on Map Quest and found he lived only a mile from our house. Ray rode on
my school bus and I was only 9 when he graduated. We stopped by his home
and he immediately remembered me----even after 54 years! We had a wonderful
conversation and intend to get together again. Ray is still working as
a security guard at a small mall near our homes.
I also saw that Gertrude (she is called Gertie by her friends) Johnson
Wright, class of 1927, was living in Tucson. (I was interested in contacting
her as I communicate with her other living classmate, Lincoln Wadsworth.
Lincoln is the uncle of our friends, Brad and Greg Slocum in Sacramento.
Their mother, Evelyn Wadsworth, also graduated from Goldfield.) I called
Gertrude in early November. and she invited Eric & I to her house for
lunch---see the attached picture of us. Gertrude is Pete Johnson's sister---she
grew up on Carpenter Hill. Gertrude lived in Renwick, Belmond, Ohio, and
Arkansas prior to moving to Tucson 4 years ago. Her husband was the manager
of a bean processing company in Belmond and Ohio. She and her husband
moved to Tucson in 1999 to be close to a daughter and------so they could
golf year round. Her husband died 2 years ago. Gertie is a very active,
energetic woman! As you probably know, Gertie's Grandfather was Major
Brassfield, a founder of Goldfield. She showed us pictures of him and
documents. Gertie and I plan to get together often in Tucson.
Thanks, again, for making this website available to the Goldfield HS graduates
Charlotte Harvey Linden, Class of 1957.
you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!
