Trip highlights include: visiting South America whle our daughter was in Peace Corps, two trips to Guatemala working with a small group giving microloans to women in communities near Chichicastenango.

School Story:

I remember with more than a little incredulity to this day that those of us who took the day off of school to go to the big parade for astronaut John Glenn were penalized by our American History teacher, Mr. Magee for being absent on the day of a test. As I recall he downgraded us one full grade when he gave us a make-up. (Unless he just threatened...I can't remember for sure!)

I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of Ann Hawkins Snoddy. I regret that I never knew her in high school, but was very glad to get to talk to her and her husband at a previous reunion. It was a pleasure to meet her and I deeply admire her for her strength and goodwill in dealing so many unkind issues. Thank you, Howard, for your beautiful portrait of Anita.

Dear Donna, my heart goes out to you and your family. I, like so many of our classmates, grew to care about Doug so much. I always read every word he wrote and looked forward to his posts. If he was offline for a while I would worry and miss him and be so relieved when he was back. He was quite a special guy and gave us so much. He taught us a lot about life and how to live it when you get thrown some hard  challenges.

 I hope he, and you and your family, know how much he means to us. All my sympathy and friendship to you and your always, Michelle

  I was always so entranced Rusty and his wonderful gifts in performance. I think I still have the record album of our production of "Once Upon A Mattress." Even though the quality of the recording wasn't great, I played it often just to hear Rusty's beautiful solos! Even my children were raised on those songs. 

 We did go to see him in The Odyssey when it came to the Kennedy Center. Even for those of us who didn't know him personally, he will always shine as such a special part of our B-CC memories. Wish he knew that he will always be out star.
