You Don't Know Jack --


Blaming the Holidays -
Wow! Christmas rushed in and left in the blink of an eye. Or at least that is the way it seemed to me as I had to work through the holidays. Nevertheless, I made the mistake of trying to go to the mall and use a couple of gift cards that I received. I think the next episode of SURVIVOR should be filmed in the harsh environment of a mall before, during, and after the Christmas rush. I would have gladly volunteered to be voted off the causeway and into the food court last night.

I hope everyone had a great holiday. I know I have been remiss in posting things to the site as fast as I should these last couple of months. I am blaming it on the crazy holiday season. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. I can tell from the lack of activity and correspondence that all of our members have been in the same boat. As a New Year's resolution, we at the Springer Connection.com command headquarters promise that you will be seeing more content and a new look to the web site. We realize that we just can't rest on our laurels and expect to see people coming back and interacting without anything new to look at. So look for changes.

Remember, this site is about members. Members who can keep in contact and that means better support etc. for reunion committees. So, keep recruiting members! I am also looking for someone to assist in collecting Highland Springs/Sandston (and surrounding areas) history as well as old photos for the History Class section. I really would like someone to volunteer to come up with about 100 HS trivia questions for use later in a fun email game we can all get involved in. Hopefully, we will be having a bulletin board so members can post messages and maybe it will spark some group interaction.

Until next time, Have a Great New Year!
