And that was the Reunion That Was!
After a rousing start on Friday, the reunion attendees (some 200 of them) gathered at the Four Points Sheraton in Milwaukee on Saturday evening. There were plenty of toasts, a lovely dinner, lots of stories of the good old days, and also a moving moment of silence for those of our class who have passed away. I hope perhaps the pictures say it best, because it's hard to find the words to describe how pleasant it was to rekindle the memories of those days (between the wars) when somehow things seemed so much more simple and less threatening. I'm afraid our grandchildren will not have it as easy as we did. I can only hope that the strength and wisdom we can impart to them will be sufficient to match the increased challenges and complexities of the 21st century.
Cheers and best wishes. Drop a line if you can. Retirees have plenty of time to write.
