Also...Other subjects of the emails are:
"GALLAUDET 140TH ANNIVERSARY" (Notice the mistake of the should be 150)

There may be more subjects coming to hack you! Please be very careful...if you feel it is not right, don't open! If you suspect that it is a scam, delete it.  It is better than being sorry that you did!

73ers in California!

Hello 73ers...I was traveling in California down from San Francisco after my niece's wedding (the weekend of August 9)  . I had contacted several 73ers who live in that state and hoped to meet them. Fortunately, I met Ron Gough and Alice Kurs on my quick way back home in Arizona.

Ron Gough in Pasadena 

Alice Kurs in Riverside

Duve, Carlene "Candy", Gayle and Linda...Hopefully we will meet soon (in future!) It was really neat to get in touch with eachother and visit when we travel.  

Hey, everyone! Keep in touch and see you all in 2018 for our 45th Reunion in the "West"...maybe in California! Remember...Ron is willing to be the Chair! He is excited as well as I am too!

Sharon and Marilyn got in touch and made an arrangement to meet eachother in Yukon!
Wasn't it awesome that Sharon and Marilyn met in Canada

Donna is staying in Davis with her sister's family and her mother. After learning that there is
the FarWest Golfers Association of the Deaf golf tournament this week
in Roseville (near Sacremento) ...
Alvin and I went there where the golfers had the registration and meeting,
Wayne and David were there! I jumped with joy because I hadn't seen them in 41 years!
