I hope this is not a duplicate of the one I tried to send earlier today, but it did not show up where it should have on the website, so I'm assuming you did not get it. If you got two, I apologize.
Well, since the first edition of this e-mail newsletter more than 14,000 hits on the site have occurred. The site now has over 300 images for your viewing and remembering pleasure.
Lloyd Swanburg, a former teacher at the startup phase of the school in Wakkanai Air Station, and a frequent and generous contributor to the site, has agreed to be a co-facilitator for the site, and has been a great help.
Several new contributors have provided new photos, and Lloyd and I want to thank them for their generousity as well. More are on the way. We are particularly interested in getting photos and remembrances from the early days, in the 50's and early 60's because we don't have many from those years. We will devote a new section to those years as soon as we can obtain enough photos to do so. So dig through those old pictures and share.
I am moving to Oklahoma City this week, so I may not be as accessible for a few days. If you write and don't hear back right away, please don't be offended, I'm on the move.
Lloyd and I hope you will revisit the site and we'd love to hear back from you with comments and suggestions related to the site.
Thanks again for your interest.
David Lynch, Facilitator Wakkanai Air Station Website
