I am very pleased to announce that Jim Bergen, our Class Vice-President, has agreed to chair our 65th Reunion Committee. We have agreed in principle that this reunion will have a few events, such as the Alumni Exercises and memorial services for deceased classmates, but will eliminate most other events as befits folks in their late 80s. We think that most folks will rather spend time getting together with classmates informally to tell war stories, catch up on families, etc. Please send any ideas or suggestions to either Jim or myself.
My best to all,
