My Sponsor


Hi every one PLEASE HELP ME FIND MR DENNIS WINDERS
When I was in Class 9, my dad was undergoing a very bad phase in life, that is when some of our teachers like Mrs Rajan, Mrs Abraham, Mrs Harshavardhana amongst others (Gideon played a big role also)guided my father and helped initiate my application for a sponsor. This resulted in a sponsor being found for me through CCF,
A kindly person called Mr Dennis Winders came forward and sponsored me for class 9-11, I am posting his picture taken on his wedding with Ms Lori at Seattle in 78.
During 1976-78 he worked for Pizza Hut in Seattle. As per people search there is a Mr Dennis Winders in Seattle however I have not been able to get his email or tele id
Hope some of our school mates in the US especially WA would be able to get in touch with this great person and forward his email id to me at shivats@gmail.com

BATH DAYS AT PETERSBURG
It was a ritual or rather a type of a race that included teamwork. You selected the strongest to run and your trusted team mate to carry your books back. The prize is to have the first dips to one of the three buckets that are available for the bath.
Till to date, when I tell of this story to friends and family, they cannot picture the event! You have to experience it to appreciate it... Will "Petersburg Boys" please comment
