Your Reunion Committee At Work July 27, 2017!

Another rollicking Reunion Committee meeting tonight, onsite at our host's home for the Friday Meet and Greet:  Carol Kenyon's beautiful house with pool and pond in Gales Ferry, CT! You are gonna love this place! Thank you, Carol Kenyon! A big Thank you also to Joe Turner who had the presence of mind to snap a few pics during the course of the meeting. The group shots were taken as an afterthought after the meeting had ended, by which time, unfortunately, some members had already left for the evening. This was probably the most raucous, rambling and chaotic meeting yet, but it was all positive energy and enthusiasm and great fun! I had to use the gavel more times tonight than I have in all previous meetings COMBINED, I think, mostly in jest. Talk about herding cats!! But it was fun to see everyone so animated, and the bottom line is, despite the apparent chaos, these guys and gals GET STUFF DONE!! It is a true privilege to be a part such a great fun group! Two weeks to go!   (All pics by Joe Turner or Florabeth Kenyon using Joe's camera phone.)

Special Treat: Previously Unseen 1967 Baseball Championship Pics From the 1968 SBHS Boys Crusader Yearbook!

Special Treat Today! Thanks to Ned and Nancy O'Sullivan Hammond, I have obtained a copy of the 1968 Crusader, the first yearbook for the SBHS Boys school in Uncasville. There were a number of events that occurred toward the end of our Senior Year at SBHS that were too late to make the deadline for the 1967 Crosier: for example, the 1967 Connecticut State Baseball Champions! It is possible that the Class of 1967 has NEVER seen these pics before! BTW, these pics did NOT appear in the 1968 Crosier, published by the SBHS Girl's School in New London. More unseen pics to come! Thank you, Ned and Nancy!

Thank you Ned and Nancy!

From The Vault of Faith Davidson Asselin!

From the Vault of Faith Asselin:  Faith shared these items with the Reunion Committee at our meeting last Thursday night.  She came across them when looking for something else, naturally, and there they were!  She has graciously allowed me to borrow them to share here.  Thank you, Faith!

Do you remember these?  ;)  

Thank you, Faith!
