Note to the St. Vincent Ferrer High School Class of 1962 from your Vice President Lois Anne Sheetz:

  I have been thinking about all of you for the past few months, really since our reunion planning meeting on February 2nd of this year. 
As it turned out, I received the chance of a lifetime for a great trip -- to a place I’ve always wanted to visit -- and I couldn’t pass it up! It was really rather sudden and I didn’t have a chance to call. So I’m writing this note. As it sometimes happens, when one of these sudden opportunities pops up – you just go for it!
  Listen, it is really amazing, some of the old gang is here. And we have been catching up. Everyone says “hi”.
   I left some photos from a previous reunion with Rich that I wanted to share with you. If you want to write a note on the back of a photo of you, Rich will get them to me later. Listen, Rich may not fit in here tonight (he went to public school). But I understand that he can stop by the front gate and drop things off for me. So, if you want to drop a line, he can drop it by later. I also found an old folder of “Memories” and also “Classmate Cards”. I thought you’d get a kick out of them.
   Oh listen to this, I saw Tug today, and he said that he was a little short on the price of a ticket, but he got credit for his ERA – and that got him in. I let him know that I saw his son and daughter-in-law a couple of weeks ago in Sacramento, and told him they are doing pretty good – and they are so sweet.
    Another thing, if Jack took too long to get a ticket for the reunion dinner – let him use mine. If he insists, let him buy a drink for the girls.
