September 28, 2016 - Thank you to all who responded to my last letter from the class of 1947 as correspondent. Many changes have been made over the years and we have had the privilege of being part of it. I hope that those who are able will keep in touch with classmates by "paper" or "e-mail". Barbara G.

Submitted January 15, 2017: To classmates: Wishing you all a Happy New Year and wish one of your goals for 2017 will to keep in touch with the classmates who continue to be interested in your life after 90? Many do not use a computer so that is a handicap; but maybe a grand or great grand child could be of help!! I know I rely on them and my adult children for many of these new technical "gadgets" We all have fond memories of that era. Barbara Burke Garlick
