There were many people who gathered to visit, reunite, sing and play for the week- end. Thanks to the various committees who worked so hard to ensure the many activities offered. Behind the scenes of every phase of the weekend, it took many volunteers and organiza- tions for the successful an- num event that is so impor- tant to all of us. There were so many things to see, so much to eat, many family reunions, the rodeo, games, golf, the parade, the talent show, a scholarship pag- eant, dances, music and much more. Each moment was filled with activities and pleasure. Two highlights of these magic moments were the heritage program at the LDS Church and the rib- bon cutting at the new high school. A great thanks to those who labored with un- believable planning and dif- ficult, hard work to present such a successful weekend. Last month, Phil Har- ston, a former Cowleyite, died at the age of 70. He grew up in town, went to Cowley High School, gradu- ated in 1958 with athletic scholarships, married his wife, Dori, had two sons and went on to a successful career. He was an asset and a great friend to many peo- ple as he journeyed through his remarkable life. He was much loved by family, class- mates and all who knew him. Sunday, July 25, a small group assembled at my residence at 12:30 for lunch and a few hours of reminiscing. The afternoon was spent honoring Phil's life. His classmate and long-time friend Bob Nich- olls took charge and we lis- tened to parts of his funer- al service in Camas, Wash., and told stories about our time with him when he was young. We also read e-mails and notes from many of his friends of the past and the present. Bob then showed bas- ketball games of the state championship basketball tournament of 1955 in Lara- mie, when the Cowley Jag- uars played Pine Bluffs; the state championship as we whipped Upton for the title in 1957 and the 1958 championship game against University Prep. The films were 16 mil- limeter so there was no sound, but the action was beautiful, and to see those basketball players in their youth and prime and ener- gy was a dream come true. What a wonderful memori- al to our brother, our friend and classmate. Thanks to Phil's wife, Dori, who provided all the material through the mail to my ad- dress. Dori has been in the hospital twice with asth- ma and other problems since Phil's death and was unable to be home for the celebration, but her spirit and love were with us. Major Ted Meek and his wife, Jessica, and five children made a special trip from Hill Air Force Base in California to see John, who has been ill. We were introduced to their new son, Jackson Thomas, who is now three months old. The other children are Sabrina, 13, Jacob, 10, Elizabeth, 7, and Stephen, 2. We were excited to see them and their family as Ted and three of his chil- dren were involved in a plane wreck early in July trying to fly to Cowley to see their dad. What a joy it was to see them strong and healthy and alive and in our lives. We loved having them, but both of us learned once more that young children belong to young parents. It was a great weekend. Byron news Meet the candidates tonight GARY GRUELL 548-2220 The Meet the Can- didates Forum is Thurs- day, Aug. 5, at 7 p.m. in the Rocky Mountain High School auditorium.
