 HI-LIFE II 
LSHS Class of 1957
Vol X # 11
November 2012
Ed Heinlein, E IC Emeritus& our
“Fearless Leader”
 
November … the month of giving
 thanks
… and we all have a lot to be thankful for. OurClass of ’57 is so thankful for having a classmate like Ed Heinlein, who is responsible for
bringing us all back together after spreading ourselves around the country the past 55years. The past 10 years have been so much fun to those of us that have attended our Class
gtg’s
(get-togethers, for you new subscribers)
. These gtg’s, as well as our
 Hi-Life II 
newsletter, are all due to the efforts of Ed and his organizational skills. Some of you maynot know it,
but the Class of ’57 has become the envy of LSHS alumni. We are the mostactive “
antique” 
class and have earned quite a reputation … one to be proud of! I’ve heardit said by many and I know the rest of the Class joins us in saying “THANK YOU, ED …IT’S BEEN A
 HOOT!”

at our 50
th
Class Reunion back in Sept., 2007
. . . And looking forward to the next one!
 
Speaking of Reunions, the Class of ’57 had a
 really fun
weekend with Ed & Vivian
Heinlein’s visit in Lee’s Summit. On Friday, 10/26, six of our Committee members met atthe High School and then had lunch at Neighbor’s Café (see Committee report on next
page) . . .
Starting with Ed (with the phone to his ear!)and continuing clockwise: Ed, Marilyn Pruyn,Margaret Offen, Harold Shewmaker, Sue & Terry
Reynolds, and Terry’s Mom who joined us ..
celebrating her 96
th
birthday! I was there, in myusual position behind the camera; my favorite place
because then I’m not seen in the pictures.
 The guy standing in red jacket was a LSHS alum
from ’75 who shared his table with us, as the Caféwas filled to it’s limits.
FYI, this is a great place tomeet and visit with old friends if you are in town.
Then on Saturday evening, Roy Hatfield set us up once more at the Lakewood Golf Club for
dinner. We were sorry Roy was unable to be with us … he had a family commitment out of town… but we want to thank him for a wonderful evening. We missed you, Roy!
 
And what a coincidence . . .Our two waitresses were thedaughters of Jolene Abell
58 !
LOTS OF FUN!!

SPECIAL REPORT . . . PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
On Friday, 10/26, we held a Committee meeting at LSHS to discuss our Scholarship andits future administration. Attending were Marilyn Pruyn, Margaret Offen, Ed Heinlein, HaroldShewmaker, Terry Reynolds and Marilyn Williams. Ed gave us a financial report on the Fund,which continues to grow.A couple of specific subjects were discussed, the first being the Scholarship growth. One
means of growth is the naming of the Fund in your obituary as a memorial opportunity “in lieu of flowers,” as did Mr. Brockman. Our Class should feel so
very
special because of histhoughtfulness and generosity. Mr. B took his
 Honorary Membership
in the Class of ’57 very
seriously. But even if the Fund is not mentioned in the obituary of the classmate, it is a perfectopportunity to say
“goodbye; you will be missed” as Ed has mentioned frequently. Several of us
have already been sending a small contribution in memory of each classmate as they leave us.
Keep in mind IT’S NOT THE SIZE OF THE GIFT THAT IS IMPORTANT … no gift is
considered too small or too large. We just would like to have
everyone
in the Class feel as if they are a major part of this project.
And the second subject discussed was “who is going to administer our Fund in the distantfuture?” Not the collection and investment duties, which will always be the responsibility of theLee’s Summit Educational Foundation, but in making the decisions and
doing the work that ourClass Committee performs right now. We hate to admit it, but eventually ALL of us are going tohave the opportunity to be memorialized by the Scholarship. We decided it would be nice to beable to count on our Scholarship recipients to see that what we have started continues on inperpetuity after we are all gone. We plan to contact our first few recipients and see if we can getthem involved while we are still available to help them learn of our purpose in establishing theFund and let them know we would appreciate their carrying on for us.Hopefully, if we can pull off the above plan of action, the Class of 1957 will remainactive at LSHS for many years to come.
