Annual Class of ‘64 Picnic at the Adams’. Mark your calendars for the first Saturday in June and guess what? This year it’s the 3rd, a most historical anniversary date!!!

Fall Brawl Golf Reminder: 10 – 14 September 2017 in Williamsburg, VA. If you have not signed up and are interested, contact Howie Bachman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bill and Suzanne Annan have been hard at work planning our Mini-Reunion (Old Ryder Cup event) at the Quail Lodge and Golf Club in Carmel, California. The dates are Sunday 29 October through Thursday 2 November, 2017. I continue to hear of Classmates who missed our earlier e-mails. This is not only a golf event. At our last event in Santa Fe we had more “Free Spirit” adventurers than golfers. The Monterey/Carmel area has so much to offer. If you have not indicated your desires to Bill Annan, please drop him a note at Bill_Annan@Comcast.net.
We are two and a butt years away from our 55th Reunion. Again we are looking at a gathering in May, however nothing is locked in concrete. Your committee is open for suggestions and ideas for the 55th. So, start thinking about this and drop me a note at your convenience – email@example.com.
We will do another update of the electronic Ward Book before the 55th. More on this soon.
The ’64 Ski Group has sort of dissolved. It was a great run, and I’m sure a number of you are missing our annual trip to the slopes. Over the past few months I have been approached by a few skiers who would like to keep the group active or maybe have one “Grande Finale”. I would be interested to hear from Classmates on this. Of course we would need some volunteers to pull this off. Contact Dan Evans firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have an increasingly growing number of Classmates and Spouses who are struggling with illnesses and “older” age issues. Some we know, but many desire to keep things confidential. Please, do not hesitate to ask for help, advice and prayers. There are limits to what we can physically do, but one never knows what can be learned from another’s experience with doctors, hospitals, the VA, Medicare, Social Security, etc. Do not hesitate to drop me a note at email@example.com; it will be Confidential.
