That is quite a route to Arkansas that you took. My grandmother was raised in Helena, AR. I have only been there once, and that was Little Rock. There was a group of us and we went around the US in the 60's. Going through AR at that time was a real eye opener. I as well have never been to a class reunion. When I worked for PacTel, I had a regional office to oversee that was located in the City of Commerce, told myself I really didn't want to come back, it had changed so much and was no longer what I remembered.
I live in a small town in Montana, with a slower pace of living at the moment, clean air and beautiful mountains. Since you like to fish, you should try Flathead Lake and some of the rivers, good fishing here.
Its been nice to chat with you, have a good evening.
Thanks for the reply. There were three of us that sat together in Jr & Highschool, found Mary and the search continues for Peter. I also remember more of Jr High than Highschool. What took you to AR? Have you ever gone to any of the reunions? Have a good day.

A minor addition. Some kids in the Nichols Canyon area went to Valley View Elementary. That could be where Paul and Laura Yates went because their house was near Mulholland. But I truly do not know. "
"Vicky Valentine: I assume Paul Yates was in your class at both Le Conte (1966) and Hollywood (1969). He most likely was in the summer (June graduation) classes. The family lived in Nichols Canyon. Kids there went to Gardner Street Elementary.…"
