Looking back at our 50th

September 23, 2013

As we are now 3 months from our 50th reunion, I am still hearing wonderful feedback from classmates. We can attribute success to “chemistry” that evolved, and an unexpected boost from an email “memoir” initiated by Ed Mellick which resulted in many “side bar” comments and reflections from classmates. The humor and various anecdotes generated even more reflection. It was interesting that as the dialogue continued to involve more participants, it provided an opportunity for more interest in the reunion. The reunion programs were “open” to other classes and with several participants from the current faculty and 50th class members, I think it was a “reunion” in the truest sense. There are now discussions to do “mini reunions” in different parts of the country in the future.
