Received a wonderful note from Jim Shepard, reminding me that there are other sports that attract classmates.

Delighted to share with you the wonderful replies I received from classmates. Really does make the life of a class secretary pleasant!

A big “thank you” to John Sheaff for playing the role of Acting Secretary and submitting commentary on our 60th Class Reunion!

Hard to believe but this is the year of our 60th Reunion. With that in mind, what better time to follow the example of three of our classmates and send a word to your secretary letting us know what’s been happening and whether or not you may be planning on a return to campus to…
