PRESIDENT'S LETTER JANUARY 2014
Welcome, classmates, to 2014,
... a milestone year for many of us as we celebrate 80!
And only two years before our 60th Reunion.. Speaking of reunions: the mini in New York City in October was a delightful gathering, according to those 26 '56ers who attended. Classmates reconnected with those they had not seen for some time.
More minis are in the offing. We'll have them in Chicago, Washington, DC, and Florida's East Coast on one condition: that one or more classmates step forward to organize them. It's fun. You'll connect with classmates. You'll help classmates connect with each other. The College provides good support. Let's hear from those who will pull these events together. VP Barb Booth Moses is eager to hear from you and serve as a wonderful source of help. You can reach her at (941) 408-1862 or artstock2@Comcast.net. Get in touch soon. On another front...Connections'56 has been limping along. However, after an informal survey, Mimi Gorn Tausner, Connections'56 admin-istrator, concluded that Connections'56 should be rejuvenated. She will reenergize it by suggesting a different topic for consideration each month. The benefit of keeping us connected far exceeds the minimal cost of this program. Watch for the next installment. For those of you who have never joined Connections ‘56.. it is not too late to do so and get in on the fun. Just email Mimi at Tausner@Yahoo.com for the set up. Web Manager Toni Holland Liebman (firstname.lastname@example.org) are eager to hear about things that you, your spouses, partners, children, and grandchildren are doing which might interest classmates. Send them your news and photos. (The latter only to Toni.)
