The four volumes are ex- panded editions of the "Remem- bering the Good Old Days" col- umns Waibel has written for the monthly 55 Plus senior publica- tion in The New Era. Her most recent, which fo- cuses on memories of Sweet Home-area schools, was com- pleted just in time for the high school's 100th anniversary All- Years Reunion, held during this year's Sportsman's Holiday. "I wrote about the 100 years of Sweet Home High School and all the other schools that have been closed in the area, though a few of them are still going," Wai- bel said. "I just thought it would be a good thing to write about them." The 208-page book may be expanded slightly for its next printing, as she has a number of photos that were missing from the initial edition. The book sells for $25 and is available at the East Linn Mu- seum and at The New Era. All the proceeds are going to the Sweet Home Alumni Associa- tion's scholarship fund, she said. "I pretty well covered all 100 years of the graduating classes," Waibel said. "When I couldn't get a picture of the class, I got pictures of sports or other activities." : !:;II?I 7! :I TI!II!IIII!II! I!
