04/08/03 ~ ATTENTION: Class of 1969:

The Class of '69 Cooks!
The book, Class of 69 Cooks, which will be released around the beginning of the year 2004, is based on food. This book will demonstrate a wide variety of types, flavors, styles, and recipes for cuisine that was favored by high school Seniors and graduates in the year 1969.
The focus is on the favorite foods of the Senior high school graduating class of 1969. The author will explore what nutritional (if any) changes have been made. What is on the dinner table of the Class of '69 during the year 2003?
Are members of the Class of '69 cooking more or fewer meals at home; are we still following the same recipes for favorite foods that we enjoyed during the sixties?
Class of 69 Cooks will appeal to a broad spectrum of the population, not just the Seniors '69. From those born during the Mid-Century population explosion, of the Twentieth Century, to those that "birthed" us, to the teenagers of the Millennium; all should at least get a chuckle, and a fond memory. This is not for scientific research!
We all know what we were doing back then, or at least thought we did at the time. The food that nourished us or sent us spinning, or brought us home - that is the recipe that should be contributed to Class of 69 Cooks!
During our high school years of the sixties, we observed everyone from Twiggy to Fats Domino, from people that looked as if they ate nothing to those that appear to have really enjoyed food; are we still the same?
Your two recipes, one for then and one for now, will all be considered. It does not have to be a recipe that you prepared yourself. Maybe it was a grandmother's dish, or your parent's concoction. What was your favorite food? Both of the recipes must be selected in combination for your entry to be published in Class of 69 Cooks. Please relate the story behind your favorite recipe in 200 words or less.
The format will be: left page 1969 recipe, right page 2003 recipe. Photographs of you then & now will be helpful and may or may not be published. In case of duplicate recipes, the pair received first will be published, and the entrant will not necessarily be notified. Scan the photographs of your self, both then (must be whole yearbook page) and now, the photograph of your finished recipes (if desired), your recipes or directions for preparation, your complete snail mail address, and a short biography. Paste into the text of an email (NO attachments will be considered) and send to: jill.russell@verizon.net
Your biography should contain at least 175 words, but no more than 250.
Biographies and recipes may be edited. All statements of a political nature will be disregarded. Cut-off date for entries is midnight CST June 15, 2003.
Some but not all of the contributors, may be interviewed either in person, by telephone, or via email, in addition to the recipe submissions.
None of the recipes or photographs will be returned. If your submissions are selected, you will receive a complimentary copy of the Book Class of 69 Cooks. There will be no other payment or consideration given. The recipes may be used in other publications by this author. The books may be published as E-Books or Hard Copy, or any other form. Other media, with written consent of Jill Russell, may publish excerpts of any of the books/articles resulting from this research.

Thank you!
Jill Russell, N.D.
Alba-Golden, Texas Senior Class of '69
Author; Class of 69 Cooks

P.S. Sorry folks, Red Velvet Cake is already taken! However if you would like to send your recipe for this highlight of the 60's and a Red Velvet Cake story, please do. It may be the subject of its own book!

03/28/03 ~ Dear OHS Grads:

A special thank you to each of you who have sent your check for Mr. Dossett's retirement gift. Your name will be listed in the retirement program and his retirement memory book. If you would like to contribute and have not done so, please make your check out to Educator Recognition Fund and mail it to 7002 East 77th Place, Tulsa, Oklahoma 74033. If possible, please send your check by April 15. Everyone is invited to Mr. Dossett's retirement party on June 22 at 2:00 p.m. in the Mary Glass Performing Arts Center on the campus of Owasso High School. Hope to see you there.

02/23/03 ~ Operation Silverado

Dear Friends:
We who have been a part of Owasso Public Schools during the last 31 years have been fortunate to work with Rick Dossett. Whether we were students, co-workers, parents, booster club members, civic groups using the high school facilities, families in need, etc., we were all given Mr. Dossett's best. Few people have had the impact on the entire community of Owasso that he has had as teacher, coach, assistant principal, and principal, but those days are coming to an end. Mr. Dossett is retiring.
Although many of us can not imagine OHS without Mr. Dossett and his total commitment to our school and community, we understand his wish for retirement, and we will miss him. What we will not miss is his 30+-year-old red and white pickup truck with the rust spots and goofy antenna. We think he deserves better, and we know all his former students, friends, and co-workers can work together to surprise Mr. Dossett with a new pickup. All of us who have borrowed his pickup over the years (and there are many of us), know its "retirement" is long overdue! For those of you who are skeptical that we can raise that much money within the next few months, consider that Mr. Dossett has seen 31 Owasso classes, representing thousands of students, graduate. If each class raises $1000 dollars, we can easily pay for a new pickup. We are requesting that as many people as possible get involved, giving whatever amount they want to give, and we are requesting your help as a school and/or community leader to contact your friends and co-workers to raise funds through donations or fundraisers.
The drive is already underway with an account established at the First Bank of Owasso. Contributions may be sent to the Educator Recognition Fund at the above address. The committee members listed below will answer any questions you may have.
Renee Mowery 272-5338 day, 272-2995 evening
Steve Mowery 272-6244 day, 272-2995 evening
Stan Trout 272-8025 day, 272-7942 evening
Patty O'Shea 272-8096 day, 492-4855 evening
Beverly Arnold 272-8106 day, 272-1536 evening

As "Operation Silverado" progresses, we will work out details of the presentation and donor recognition. So that everyone may be recognized, we ask that each donation contain the name, address, school, and graduating class year, if applicable, of those contributing to the fund. We will keep cards for each class, school, and organization with a list of each person participating.
The few student and community leaders who know about our plans are excited, and we hope you will be excited, too. Please remember that this project is a surprise, so be very careful what you say when Mr. Dossett is around. He would never allow us to do what we're doing if he were to find out! Can we keep this a secret? You bet! Mr. Dossett is so busy he won't even know what we are up to unless someone tells him.
Secretly yours, Friends of Rick Dossett

01/21/03 ~ Class of 1973 REUNION
