Sad news
Hi all,

Recently received word from Gay that Archie Allen died last week after a long battle with cancer. (Gay and Archie were classmates at Williams College.)

You can see his pic and a link to his obituary on the class web site. I added it to the most recent newsletter. Here is the page link:

Newsletter Update
Hi all, and a happy new year to you.
As my last act before I start to get old (I turn 75 tomorrow), I just published an update to the last newsletter. Not a lot to report, but still some nice inputs and pictures.
Also a pitch to use the Facebook group for the class if you want to send news out to the 63 classmates already signed up. Check it out.
Here's the link to the newsletter update.

Class of '60 December 2016 Newsletter
Greeting all -

Well, here it is two days before Christmas and I somehow have the time to do a newsletter. What's wrong with this picture? I must have missed something I was supposed to be doing. I'm sure I'll find out day after tomorrow.

The latest newsletter is available for your review and comments. Let me know if you find errors or have problems with the display.

There's lots of news!

Also, if I missed something you sent, by all means tell me. It's easy update the page.

If you meant to send something but didn't, go ahead and send it. I'll be adding a second page as usual.

Here's the link: http://www.greeley-class-of-60.com/november-2016

best wishes to all.

Summer 2015 Class Newsletter
Hi all,

Here is the link to the new/interim class website as I fill in for Beth until further notice.

It's on kind of a reduced scale right now, with only a home page and a newsletter page, but right now the focus is to get out a newsletter and some information/queries about a tentative reunion plan.

Anyway, here's the link - let me know if you have any difficulties. Also, if you have some input you'd like to make, just send it on to me, and I'll insert it. Heck, if I get enough I'll just add a page.... It's easy to do.

The autumn issue of Herd in the Halls
Dear All

A smidgeon later than I’d planned, but life intervened as it tends to. Anyway, although the issue is a bit on the light side, I hope you’ll enjoy it. It officially launches our new domain name, and it’s our first themed missive. And thanks to all who’ve sent in news to share – otherwise it wouldn’t be a newsletter at all. Doh!

Please click this link:
http://www.herdinthehalls.com/

Please let me know asap if anyone cannot access any of the pages. I recommend setting your browser window to full fat strength.

All the best in the chillier months ahead. See you sometime in the New Year – YIKES!
Beth

Sad news
With thanks to Dave, Gay, and Peter Davidson, we've recently learned of the sad death of our classmate Grant Schroeder.

His family had arranged hospice care toward the end. Dave's found the obituary website [link below] where you can leave a message on the Guest Book until 19th July. I'm sure Grant's family would appreciate your contribution.

http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/houstonchronicle/obituary.aspx?n=h-grant-schroeder&pid=165394883&fhid=3186

Of course we'll mark Grant's passing in the next issue of the newsletter, which should be ready in mid-late August.

I hope you enjoy it.

Jeanne Irwin
The Class of 1960 was sad to hear that one of our valued teachers Jeanne Irwin recently suffered a fall. When you're over 90, that's not a simple thing.

We all wish her well, and we'll keep everyone informed about her progress.

I hope you enjoy this issue.

Sorry to report this. Here is the email from Holly's hubby, Terry:

"Holly passed away in August after a very brief illness It turned out that she had colon cancer which she had taken to be indigestion. Holly declined medical attention and died quietly at home. If you can, please pass this news on to the class. I thought you guys were and are a great bunch when we met at the 40th. She loved you all."

New Class of '60 newsletter
Hi all,

Just when you thought it was safe to go back on the Internet....

The new edition of the class newsletter is available for you at this link:
http://raccoon42.com/summer_2008.htm

If you sent me something and I missed it somehow, please let me know and I will fix it right away. If you have stuff to send, by all means do so -- I will be adding a "Page 2" to the letter and I can easily insert anything you like. If I got something wrong, please tell me, so I can fix it.

The mailing address and email pages are still works in progress, so if you see errors, let me know. I will be adding several email addresses in the next day or so.

If you talk with classmates who are not getting the newsletter and would like to, ask them to contact me. I have several email addresses these days, but the best one for class business is davetwilliams (at) comcast.net.


Best wishes,
Dave

Congratulations!
I guess I'll take a little liberty with the system to pass on some news about myself. My daughter Cindy had a baby girl this morning, Abigal Rose Mitchell. Mother and daughter (and father) doing fine. So, like many of you, I is a grandparent too.

Online Magic Advertisement
Hi ... I'm from the Class of '60 ... we do seem to have alot of computer nerds ... I'm definitely among 'em.

In fact, I'm now working for a company called Online Magic [offices in NY and London] and I'm producing corporate websites, with some pretty hefty clients like British Airways, and [UK]Channel 4 TV, etc.

So ... anyone out there whose company is ripe for the Net and wants a truly remarkable site? Please contact me, and I'll let you know how we're getting known as the best Web Design and build companies in the world! Keep it in the Greeley family All best wishes
