Dear Classmates, Widows, and Friends,

         As you may have noticed, our class website has had some major changes, not the least of which is that Bob Dunn is now the site manager. Henceforth, for any inputs, reviews, or criticisms please contact Bob at robtdunn at aol.com.

         Along with changes in the website, we have also had a change in class leadership. Lee Kollmorgen and Teddi are selling their home in Annapolis and moving to Culpeper, Virginia. Because of distances involved, Lee has necessarily resigned his position as our president, leaving our vice-president, Tom Boyce, in charge until we have an election on June 10th in conjunction with the Annual Meeting. For those of you who cannot attend the Annual Meeting, we will announce the results of the election on this website.

         Schedule and other details with regard to the 70th Annual Meeting and Reunion are on the “Now Hear This” page of this website. Venue is the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Annapolis; the dates are Tuesday, June 8 through Friday, June 11. The entire class leadership and, indeed, many of your old friends urge you to attend. Where else will you find so many nonagenarians renewing friendships, catching up, and telling the same lies that were told back when…and perhaps sipping a libation or two as you do so?

         Finally, no matter how many show up at the Crown Plaza, we all owe a tremendous shout out to Ruth and Bob Small for their herculean efforts in putting it all together. Thank you, Ruth and Bob!
