Members of the Class of 1944 received my letter dated January 2014, inviting you to join our 70th Reunion. I described a one-day 70th, recognizing that if you live west of Pennsylvania or South of DC, it may be impossible for you to get to Andover. My response form brought reassurances from 20 classmates, that if they continue to be relatively healthy, they will attend:
Art Phinney, Dick Abrons, Dick O’Keeffe, Tom Howard, Gib Reese, Jerry Wensinger, Bill Wilcox, Carl Strong, Sumner Milender, Sandy McCulloch, Dick Hatton, john Stauffer, Otis Parker, Stan Dickey, Whit Stevens, John Henes, Carl Coon, Al Allenby, Roger Strong and me.
Our one-day Reunion on Saturday, June 14 allows classmates to come for just one day, and then back to their own homes and beds. We’ll have a picnic lunch in front of GW and for those who want to attend the more formal Reunion Dinner that evening in Paresky Commons (joining the “Old Guard”) you are welcome to stay. Because we are the “newcomers” to the “Old Guard”, there is no charge for the reunion or those two meals. If you prefer to arrive on Friday, or stay over until Sunday, click on the Accommodations link for available hotels nearby. (Unfortunately, the Andover Inn is already fully booked.)
Our traditional Class of l944 Service of Remembrance, led by Tom Howard and Al Allenby, will be held in the lower level of Cochran Chapel on Saturday, June 14 at 2:30 p.m..
We look forward to seeing you!
