From Jane Monfalcone Simmons ('61) of GA (soon to be FL) - 06/11/16:
I was just catching up on some of the newsletters and saw that someone was looking for Joe Thweat. He was at one of our last get-togethers, and hopefully will be with us for the next in October. 55 years! I think he was in NC, but I'm not sure. I think the only classmate we have in the Pacific NW is Bill Anspach. If you still need contact info, I can look it up.
I hope all is well with you and yours!
Thank you so much, Jane! Maybe this will help someone, as well as inspire them all to begin making plans to attend!
If at first the idea is
not absurd, then there is no hope for it.
From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 05/22/16 - "GOD'S POST-IT NOTES (#16 in a Series of 17)":
The real secret of happiness is not what you give or what you
it's what you share.
GIGGLES! Thank you, Dearest Judy!
From George Helliesen ('61) of VA - 05/30/16 - "AND THE YEARS GO BY... (#11 in a Series of 11)":
And the years go by
