Reminder! Our 45th Anniversary Reunion in the "West"!

Our 45th Anniversary Reunion chairperson, Ron Gough is beginning 
to roll his sleeves and preparing it real soon! 
He will meet the Class of '73 president sometimes in this coming December! 
Once 2016 arrives, it will be TWO years to go! Exciting! 

From Canada To the South of America!

Kathy joined her Canadian friend driving all the way down to the 
South and visiting several people in Phoenix...met Donna for a day. Fun! 
Then Kathy flew to Austin to spend time with Marilyn. Lucky she met several 73ers there! 
She enjoyed the warm weather and was having a blast time! 
She plans to come back again and join us for the Class of 1973 
45th Celebration in 2018 in Sedona, Arizona!
