Reminders for the upcoming reunion…………...
VIDEO PRESENTATION: Steve Richter has generously donated his time and effort to preparing a presentation for us for the weekend. He is looking for any photos you may have from “the old days” and maybe an updated photo. As he says:
“The key to a successful show are photos of classmates doing anything. Cadets must be the center of attraction, and the photos need to have been taken from distances that make the cadets recognizable (in focus). Because I will not have photos of all our classmates, I decided to use the yearbook pics, and then associated cadet pics, and then recent pics of the same people. It will be a kind of classmate Smith before (Yearbook picture), and classmate Smith in 1 or more pics as a cadet, and finally classmate Smith as a 70 year old (after format). For some classmates, there will only be the before picture (from the yearbook), but "they will" see themselves on the big screen.Please provide any such photos, and at the very least, a few recent photos of you and yours.”
HOTEL RESERVATIONS: The hotel is filling up. If you are seriously thinking of coming, it is suggested that you make your reservations soon. You can always cancel if you find you cannot come.
