We had our 54-Year Reunion today at Kiln Creek Golf Club in NN and had a very beautiful day;
with a good turnout...there were approximately 50 there.   I had located some 300 old 8 X 10
glossy black and white photos taken for the publishing of the Anchor (1951 yearbook)
that had been lost until about 3 months ago.  I brought them and they were a highlight of the day.

I have added some photos with comments that you may use in your Newsletter or whatever.
