  and  7+ YEARS  describing to Cocoa High Alumni how

 much fun WE are having at  HAPPY HOUR CREW events!

      It has been my pleasure to remain in contact with

          so many of you Special Classmates from CHS.

          However,  I am not ready to  GIVE IT UP  yet!

Looking forward, hoping for, as many years as I can have!
