the Medal of Honor charity. Bill is likewise active
in the Marine Corps scholarship program for chil-
dren of fallen heroes. Bill worked with

Getting together, I hope, brings thoughts of Re-
union to the fore. You are making your plans al-
ready, aren’t you? No family members allowed to
graduate, marry, etc. on that weekend. We need
all the threads of our tapestry there. See you at
in 2014 -- a great time to announce, in the
words of Stephen Sondheim,“I’m still here.”
From campus comes sad word of the death of
in Dexter, N.Y., after a long ca-
reer as a dentist in the Watertown area. Prior to
his death he had made a special request to family
and friends that seems an appropriate way to end
this column: “Please tell people, instead of dona-
tions, to give their children, grandchildren and
great- grandchildren a hug… for that is what life
has always been about.”

purchased the Meadows Res-
taurant in late August. It’s about a mile out Park
Street from the Little River Bridge on the edge of
campus. They serve excellent morning meals and
lunches. We are giving Richard a plug because of
the good work he has done in helping us gather
class information and has said little of himself.
When in the area, stop in and say hello.

there is a movement afoot to honor

They are gathering information, along with Bob’s
children, to place a tree or bench or plaque near
Appleton Arena. If interested in helping, let Mike
or Richie know...details later.

in the Saranac Lakes area in the Adirondacks.
This was our sixth year of canoeing the Northern
Forest Route from Old Forge, N.Y., to northern
Maine. We canoe with two other couples and
bite off a section each year. This was the best
three-day trip yet!
Send cards and letters! We would love to hear

The weekend prior to Reunion,
was in San Francisco for the 75
sary bash for the Golden Gate Bridge. Joseph B.
Strauss, the chief engineer involved in the con-
struction of the bridge, was Lori’s great-uncle.
There was a VIP ribbon-cutting and an opening
event with the mayor, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and
Governor Jerry Brown. Lori ended up on several
San Francisco local evening new stations! In ad-
dition to enjoying a history tent devoted to the
construction of the bridge and going out to lunch
with event organizers, Lori said, “the grand finale
was spectacular fireworks off the bridge, which
we watched frommy daughter-in-law’s sweeping
view of the harbor.” The weekend after Reunion,
Lori’s son David was married in Los Angeles.
Joan Friedlander Hurley
made a trip to Boston
in mid-April for daughter Elisa’s bridal shower.
While there, she got together with

Marathon. She and Joan spent part of their visit
putting together packets for the Marathon. Joan,
husband Jack and son Kevin flew east again for

and the Hermitage.”
