Season’s greetings! I wish you and your family a happy and healthy holiday season and 2012. I can’t wait to see you at reunion, May 31 - June 3, 2012.
I’m attempting to mix things up by employing a different format throughout most of the balance of this letter. Please let me know if you like it. Here we go…
If you’ve been unable to attend a reunion, or it’s been awhile, I urge you to come back…It promises to be an enjoyable experience reacquainting yourself with old friends, and perhaps even making some new ones.
Had a great time at reunion planning this summer…Great interaction and fun among the group bodes well for the actual event itself…Campus is beautiful…A few of us took a “self-guided” tour of the Zankel music building…Very impressive and adds a lot to campus…It now goes by another name, but had a nice dinner at Caunterbury’s Saturday night of reunion planning weekend…Looks much the same, with the various rooms and indoor “lake” intact…Personal favorite Beef Wellington not on the pre-selected dinner menu…Maybe next time…Based on the small sample of the reunion planning committee, the ladies are aging more gracefully than the guys!…That’s OK!
Pictured are planning Committee members (from left):
Top Row: Earl Zeligman, Chuck Kaufman, Angie Foss, Ken Zeitler, Peggy Frew-Nehms.
Bottom Row: Jennifer Aborn Hart, Jeanne Work Urquhart
Gratifying response to the reunion reminder postcards…Several
classmates have already enthusiastically contacted planning committee
members…Apologies to those who received a postcard signed by yours
truly…The years haven’t improved my handwriting one bit…Enjoyed rooming
once again with freshman year roommate Ken Zeitler (this time with
wives)…Brought back great memories of Wilmarth room 230 circa
1978-1979…In that vein must mention outstanding suitemates and fellow
‘82ers Jack “JJ” Day and John “Hutch” Hutchinson from that memorable
freshman year…It’s a great privilege to work with fellow reunion
planning co-chairs Angie Foss and Jenn Hart…I’ll try to stay out of
their way as much as possible.
For periodic updates and more details, I suggest you regularly visit this page and the Reunion ’12 website, (http://cms.skidmore.edu/reunion)...Thanks
to classmate Vicki Salvo Bruce we have a class Facebook page (click on
Facebook link above) containing a link to a “30th Reunion Good Times and Good Friends” page…Strong initial traffic…Encourage you to visit soon and post a message.
Last but not least, please keep sending your news to Class Secretary Angie Foss at firstname.lastname@example.org. Angie looks forward to receiving updates on family, work, travels, etc. and sharing them with classmates via the Scope magazine.
Hope to see you at reunion, May 31 - June 3, 2012. More to come…
Warmest regards this holiday season…
