This is a post by Jimmie Nipper Ovington about our reunion and rather than typing it all again, I'm being lazy and just thought i would copy & paste:
Send ticket money to Ms. Jimmie N. Ovington ( Nipper) . Make check to Class of 1967 CHS. (Please email Jimmie at for mailing address) Several have reserved lodging. We are in need of DONATIONS to help cover cost of Band and decorations. If you can make a donation above the $70.00 ticket price per person, it would be helpful. We started with no money and tried to keep tickets reasonable. If you are able, we would appreciate a donation. See many of you at Stir. Please ask folks to respond HERE so I know how many are coming at 2:00 next week. Some have told other folks but please respond here for Stir
So I can have enough seats. Thanks. Jimmie Nipper Ovington. Patricia A Tucker (Patty Hardy Tucker) and I have worked hard locally and several others have worked on notifying from out of town but Patty and I are handling all money and both are on our account ( empty at present) at First TN. It will all come together. Go Dynamos. I do need emails and phone numbers. My email is and Patty Hardy Tucker is See many at Stir. Second Committee meeting is August 12, 2017 at 2:00 at Christ United Methodist Church at 8645 East Brainerd Road( across from Publix and Walgreens) at corner of East Brainerd and Morris Hill Road. Hopefully, we will have some donations to help cover costs, a Committee for Dinner, September 10 after Meet and Greet and Saturday Lunch and Activity by August 12. Will put another invite up for it on July 16.

Benjie Seymour (1970)

Hello...My name is Benjie Seymour.  I graduated with the class of 1970.  I am trying to find some information on a childhood friend of mine who also attended CHS.  I am wanting to get in touch with him.  HIs name is Vernon Richard Brooks...I called him Ricky.  He lived up the street from me in North Chattanooga on Overman St.  I grew up on Worthington St.  We were right up the hill from Riverview.  I am unable to find any contact information on him anywhere.  He didn't attend any of the reunions we have had since graduation.  The last contact I had with him was about 35 years ago and he was living in Houston, Tx.  I'm not even sure if he is still living, but would love to get back in touch with him.  I grew up with this whole family...his father was Vernon Brooks, mother was Dixie.  He had an older brother named Fred and a younger brother named Jerry.  Also, there were two sisters named Donna and Margaret..."Maggie" I called her.  If anyone has any information at all regarding Ricky or his whereabouts, please notify me.  I would love to get back in touch with some "old" childhood friends.  Thanks for any help you can offer.

I live in Houston and researched property records to see if I could find a home listed in that name. I found nothing. Property records only show property ownership in Houston but would not show if he was renting. There are many homeowners named Richard Brooks but no Vernon or V Brooks. Have you tried Facebook or Linkedin? My elementary school girlfriend found me recently on Facebook.

Benjie there is a Vernon R Brooks age 65 in Morristown TN and also the same in Buxton Maine.

Benjie Seymour (1970)

To All... I want to thank each and every one of you that posted to my request about finding Vernon Brooks.   I am almost certain he would  still live in Houston, Tx., though I have no reason to really think this to be true.  I will do some more research and use the great tips that each of you forwarded me in my quest to find him.  If he is still living, I'm sure I can now locate him, thanks to great friends and classmates.  Again, thanks to each of you for helping me and for being true Dynamo's.

Benjie Seymour (1970)

Thanks for the address and phone number, Charles.  I will definitely follow up on that and see if I can get lucky and it be him.  I had another address for the same name so I mailed a letter today to see if it might be him.  Won't know til next week though, with snail mail.  Again, thanks for the tip.

He's the right age Benjie, he's 66 years young!

Benjie Seymour (1970)

That would be right.  He was a little less than a year older than me.  Thanks!

Rebecca (Becky ) Hofmeister (McNiel) (1967)

Hi All! I can't wait to see everyone. Even though I haven't lived in Chattanooga since 1971, my roots are deep and high school brings so many great memories. At our reunion, I want to encourage you local people to come! I want to see you!  Becky Hofmeister, now Rebecca (I think I grew up?)

Greetings to Rebecca and to my other former classmates from City, and from Northside. I'm sorry I'll be missing the reunion.

Mary Buckner (Brown) (1970)

Will the class of 70 ever have anymore reunions? Can't believe how long it's been since the last one.
Would love to see everyone and talk memories.

Benjie Seymour (1970)

I agree, Mary.  We are overdue for a get-together.  Three more years will be the milestone 50th anniversary reunion but it just seems so far away.  Time is definitely speeding least for me...and while I will definitely attend the 50th...God willing...I hate having to wait that long to see all my classmates and taking that proverbial stroll down Memory Lane.  I wish there were some way we could have something like a "mini-reunion."   lol

Marty Von Schaaf (1970)

Mary and Benjie,

We are in the very infant stages of putting together a 1970 class reunion for the first Saturday in Octobe 2018.  Expect to see a formal announcement October of this year.  Planning committee will meet soon after the first of the year.  Looking forward to seeing a lot of folks I haven't seen in a while.  We will most certainly be looking for help with contact information once we determine who's missing off our current list.  Stay tuned!

07/29/17 09:05 PM #164    

Benjie Seymour (1970)

Hey, Marty...

   Sounds awesome.  I will be looking forward to more details as they become available.  Thanks!!

Benjie Seymour (1970)

To all who offered assistance and kind words in my attempt to locate my childhood friend, Ricky Brooks, a huge THANK YOU.   Sharon Maberry had provided me with an address that seemed like a possibility, so I sent a short letter to him inquiring if it was, in fact, the one I grew up with.  As luck would have it, it was.  He called me the next day and we had a good talk.  I am hoping that we can remain in touch with each other as time goes on.  He provided me with some information on his family and such.  It was nice hearing about them, too, as I actually grew up with all of them.  So, again, a heartfelt thanks to all who replied, assisted, and gave kind words in my quest to locate Ricky.  GO DYNAMO'S!!
