Subject: Thank You
Message: Deb, Win & Committee. Thanks to you all for your hard work and organization. It was a great reunion.
Hi Deb and Barbara: Thanks very much for a super reunion. I saw a lot of people whom I
hadn't seen in years. It really was a high point of the year (so far).
The Alma Maters were a minor disappointment. The Milford Concert
Band played them at its concert Friday night but we couldn't get
anyone to come forward and sing. There was no attempt at the
reunion, but then you had trouble getting people's attention for the
But at least we have them now, and there's always a next time.
Best wishes and thanks again.

Many thanks for a wonderful weekend. The "55" class reunion cocktail party was
terrific. The All Class
Reunion was a great success. So happy Saturday rains did not arrive as predicted.

It was very hard for me to recognize
people as I have not been to the reunions on a continual basis. The name tags
were certainly a plus. My suggestion would be to use magic marker pens for the name tags and/or have
each class print out labels with large dark print for all known attendees using
the (computer). A year book picture attached would be good. I know what a thankless
job volunteering is. I wish to thank you and your friends for a job well done.

I had a good time & so did John. He said he'd go again next time. I wish more people danced. I did &
a few others. I think that we need some activities. Team stuff that
would engage people to work together & have fun. John and I opted to go out to dinner with friends instead of driving down to Walnut Beach for the bonfire.

To Dick, Barbara, and "The Smiths":
Just wanted to say "thank you"for all for your work on the All -Class Reunion, song, etc. It was a really great day. And I was there (under the tent) to join in singing our Alma Mater and cheer my newly-crowned royal classmate, Trevor Davis, as he rode around in his royal golf cart. The committee did an outstanding job. Best one so far. My 1944 classmates absolutely loved the special attention to our growing needs. We had ten actual classmates, plus spouses and children who stayed for almost five hours. Good for octogenarians! Tons of wonderful spirit! A million thanks to the committee.

I thought the reunion was a big hit and I really enjoyed it. I know it was a lot of work but well done.

No question we got a great value for the cost. Interesting to realize
how many of our class are deceased. Since I am not in town I feel a bit detached. It was good to see those I
knew years and years ago, however, a planned activity might bond a few more people and liven up the afternoon.

I thought we must have close to 2,000 classmates at this ALL-CLASS REUNION. I did get some suggestions from people who attended.
-- Move the music more to the center of the field, and have the vendors behind them ... not sure this could work.
-- When people are pre-registered - have one person sign them in; the second one should stamp their hand. Many individuals were confused when they were told to go to Shana to have their hand stamped.
-- SHARPIES should be used for classmates to sign the stick on name tags, instead of pens. Many individuals didn't even stop to do this.
-- Placement of porta potties in different spots was wonderful. Having some close to the entrance gate was very helpful.
-- The vendors were great and the food was priced very well.
