From Carol Buckley Harty ('65) in Fayetteville, NC:

We didn't want the reality of the fact that the 19 of us were not going to be together for the holidays
this year interfere with our plans.  So my son, Dale, created a virtual reunion photo of us and pasted us
all together on a backdrop of the LDS temple in Alberta from Randolph and Brandy's trip this fall.

From L to R: Randolph Harty and Brandy Beger, J.D., of St. Louis, MO; Dale, Adrienne, and Nathaniel Harty of Fayetteville, NC; Rebecca, Mary, Andrew, Rachel, Lewis, and Elizabeth Harty of Livingston, IL; Paul, Carol, and Joshua Harty of Fayetteville, NC; and Tommy, Bethany, Emeline, Brent, and Jacob Harty
of Springfield, OR.

"'Til we meet again!"

From H. P. Lucas ('65) in Yorktown, VA:


"I'm happy to report the reunion committee spent in real dollars a total of $266.72 for the picnic.  
Donations totaled $250.00.  Net cost of all that food-fun-& fellowship = $16.72. 
This leaves us a balance of $562.69 to be used for start up funds for our 40th reunion 
to be held the third week of October 2005.  
So be sure to load that date up in your palm pilots and be ready to do some shagging!!!
"The reunion committee will begin preparation meetings the third Thursday of the month 
at Joe & Mimma's restaurant in Yorktown.  These meetings will begin in January 2003.  
Starting time will be 7:00 PM; anyone interested in joining us please let one of us know.
 We want this reunion to be the best of ALL TIME reunions ever. So let the creative 
juices begin to flow!!
"Thanks to you all!!!"
Thank YOU, H. P.!

From Me ('65) in NC:

My turn!  My daughter-in-law, Bethany, just sent me these pictures of their family.  They were taken on August 9, 2002 at Camp Baker, near Florence, Oregon, where our second son, Brent, has been Director of the Cub Scout Resident Camp all summer as part of his job as an executive with the BSA.  For the closing day of camp, Brent asked that I mail him out the British and French costumes I had made for local celebrations each year from 1976 to 1989.  The smaller redcoat uniform was originally made for Brent.  Funny how time flies!
