Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
What better to follow smiles than eyes? I started to offer it as a contest to see who could identify all these beautiful eyes, but it would just be too easy; there are far too many clues in the naming of the images, and the first one is a total freebie. If you want to guess who's who, it should be fairly obvious that the gals are on the left and the guys are on the right. Chances are excellent that one of them is YOU!

"In Your Eyes" is a song by musician Peter Gabriel from his 1986 album So. It reached #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks and #26 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1986. It was not released as a single in the UK. Gabriel later released an extended version of the song which was nearly 9 minutes in length (as compared to the original 5:29 version that appears on the album). Like many of his songs, "In Your Eyes" contains significant African influences, even more so when performed live (on the So tour) as an extended vocal duet with Youssou N'Dour.
The song was the finale of the Secret World Tour, and is the final track on the Secret World Live album.
In 1993, Gabriel performed the song on Saturday Night Live.
The song was included on the US version of his 2003 compilation Hit, but not on the European or Japanese versions.
In 2005, after 19 years of accumulated sales, the song brought Gabriel his first Gold single, certified in the U.S. by the RIAA.

From Karen Weinstein Witte ('60) of FL - 09/17/16 AND 10/25/16:
I sent this in September apparently to an old address. Hope you can get it included in a newsletter soon.
Hope all is well with you and your family. I am exploring the possibility of having an "in-between-reunion" for the Class of 1960. Next year will be 57 years and I thought a "Heinz 57 Reunion" might be in order.
I'm hoping one of your readers has (or knows someone who has) a beach house at Buckroe Beach that could be rented out for a weekend possibly in May, 2017. I would like at least 3-4 bedrooms.
My idea is to have a place classmates can come and hang out on Friday night as well as Saturday afternoon/evening.
If anyone has information, they can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 941-343-2900. I am in Sarasota.
Thanks so much!
Karen Weinstein Witte
Karen, I'm so sorry!
email was one of the several "issues" to which I eluded in Monday's
Today's Newsletter will be included in the third and NEXT announcement, which should only have three or four Newsletters. That way it won't get lost in the shuffle by anyone who sees an announcement with 42 or 30 Newsletters and simply throws up their hands and runs away screaming!
Meanwhile, I know two people who may have an answer for you:
The Head Cheerleader of 1958, Evelyn Fryer Fish of TX has rented a Buckroe cottage several times: Evelyn <EvelynFish@msn.com>.
Sandra Canepa ('56) of VA owned that cottage: Sandra <email@example.com>. I don't know whether she still does or not.
I hope they - or someone else - will be able to help you, because your idea sounds delightful!
From J. Harrison ('58) of GA - 10/25/16:
Many thanks for all you do.
You're welcome, J., but thank you - for everything!
