Yes! Attending Reunion

As indicated the last time I wrote here, I did find a permanent home for my company, JBCPR. The whys and wherefores of that move I sent to most of my classmates in a link during this last 55th reunion. For those who didn't get it, here it is again:

How I got to the position of starting JBCUmberland PR in 1985 originally involved living in NYC married to an opera singer, as i finished my Ohio Univ degree at Columbia U and had 2 kids. We moved to San Fran. for a short terrific stint; then Germany for 10 years with 2 little kids and same same opera-singing husband. Leaving him in 1982 and coming back to NYC with 2 teenage kids, networking with biz contacts initiated in German international community, and voila, seemed natural to turn freelance customers into monthly clients and start a PR firm.

I still plan to gradually minimize my contribution to the firm over the next several years and, therefore, begin to do lots of other things .... sometime!

School Story

Just remembered the time Mr. Noffsinger [Principal] got on my case cause I showed up in evening at basketball came to 'dance' with 'Elkadetts' although I'd been "sick" that day.
How'd he know that I'd skipped!?? CHS was clearly too small! ;-)

The questions ask : "Attending 55 Class Reunion - Yankee Trace in the Academy Room (08/01/15).....does that mean that Yankee Trace is also the reunion for the class 1960 or are we just doing Pizza on Fri night and joining in on '55 if we'd like?
That would be quite a come down after the lovely event at Auberge 5 years ago.
