Where is Dick Hays???
It was called to my attention that Dick Hays, who served as Treasurer on our 50th Reunion Committee, was missing from the photo of the committee in the Photo Gallery. I looked for him and grabbed him for a retake of the photo. Sorry it took nine years, Dick! Our apologies.

Here we are at the end of 2022, I wonder what you all have been through?
I have managed to get away, enjoying a little warm island play!
But tough winter stories have hit the news, I am on the beach while you may be singing the blues!
Just think- in another year and a half, we will all be having a laugh- our 60 year celebration will be in line, so I can only hope some folks find the time, to organize- then we can fraternize!
I have seen so few of you, the 55 year party I invited you all to, but now my house in Minnetrista was sold, we felt we were getting to old- looking after the 5 acres was a lot of land, we changed our minds- creating a new plan!
But maybe I will still have my car shop- after 50 years there I m not ready to stop!
Who has a mind to put it out, see what we can think about?
Happy New year-2023 looks great to me,
Mark Brandow

Don't miss the wonderful article about Bruce Brothers that was published today. You can read it in the Class Stories section. A fascinating read about his career in sports journalism and his passion for running marathons. Congrats, Bruce!
