Hi Maryanne:    Due to current health problems I will not be able to travel any distance by that time. I will look forward to any photos post-reunion and will keep everyone in my thoughts.    Bob Parker

We won't be attending this year as we are work/camping in Pa., as we have been for several years, and are committed through September.

Thanks for the reunion information.

We have to be back in North Carolina the week after Labor Day for business so we won't be able to attend.

Please say hello to Bob Swanick and Chris Hall for me.

Have a good time.

 Hi Maryanne!

    Thank you very much for the invitation to the Classes of '52 and '53 Reunion. We have a very busy schedule in September. In October, we are coming to Troy to celebrate my sister's birthday. Making two trips so close together is not practical for us.

    So we will not be attending the events.

Sorry Maryanne, we have a grandson playing college football & have committed to going to his opening game on that weekend. Additionally, he is a member of the US Olympic team - skeleton sled, & we've committed ourselves to following his sports career, no matter where it leads us. Additionally, we live in Wells Maine for 5 months of the year, & it makes it difficult for us to be able to get to everything that we'd really like to. The money for traveling has to come from somewhere. I really would like to be able to make it, but it just isn't in the cards. Please give my classmates my very best, and make my online address available to them. Frank Miter

Hi Maryanne,

    Can't come to the reunion as I will be on Cape Cod leading a Senior Vacation - something I do every year & have been doing for a number of years now. Already talked to Connie Malone Laposta who I have known for 72 years now (Is this possible?) & told her I wouldn't be there as over the past few, we have come together.

Maryanne, I was really looking forward to the reunion but will not be able to attend. I was scheduled for knee surgery in Aug. that has been postponed until Sept. Since I am unable to walk and must use an electric cart my wife decided I should stay home. As she is the boss I did not argue. Please say hello to everyone for me. We have moved from AZ to DE to be closer to our family. (35051 Cadbury Circle E., Lewes, DE, 19958 Tel. 302 645 0594) Email Have fun and see you in five years.

Dear Maryanne,

Sorry to say, Doris and I won't be able to attend the reunion this year.  Other commitments keep us from being with you all.  All is well here.  Hope it's a great time!!

Bill Boocock

P.S.  Thanks for all the work you do for the reunion.
