2016 REUNION INFO UPDATES

To my favorite Uaddans!
Tuesday morning I loaded my car and drove back to Virginia!  What a LOT of great memories from this Reunion!  As I was driving down the road I started laughing so hard thinking about the program from Sunday night!  :-)   I want to thank Fred, Bo, George and Tom (of the Class of 1965) for not being afraid to embarrass themselves and to Gary for being our fantastic ‘Poet Laureate’!  But most of all I want to thank Jim Sneed for being the best MC that we could ever have at each reunion (even though he wouldn’t wear his heels, cocktail dress & black wig this time!!)!!  Oh…and who could ever forget our ‘Marilyn’, Sandy Reiner Rech!!!  :-)   Thank you for the gifts I received as they were so meaningful and I send special thanks to Kathie de Russy and Carolyn Thornton for all their help!  I am so blessed to have friends…no…FAMILY… like all of you!! For those that were unable to attend our 12th Wheelus ex-Students Reunion I must say you really missed a great time!  I have been told that the Class of ’65 has challenged the Class of ’67 to put on the next finale program for the 2019 Reunion!!  I can’t wait to see that!!!!  :-)                NOTICE FROM JOE NORTHROP ABOUT THE WHEELUS SCHOLARSHIP…..
