Dear ’51 Classmates and Associates:


We are happy to report that plans for our Montreal/Quebec City Mini-Reunion have been finalized. The Mini will now start in Montreal on Thursday, September 20.  Those who elect to take the optional extension to Quebec City will depart from Montreal on Monday, September 25.  The Quebec City extension will conclude on September 27 and Princeton Journeys can arrange transportation back to the Montreal Airport, railroad station or garage for those who need it.


It should be noted that children, grandchildren and companions are welcome to join us.  We are particularly anxious to encourage our Associates to join us but we don’t have their addresses in every case.  Therefore, if you know an Associate who might have an interest, please give me their name and we will see that they get a registration package


Classmates should already have received a mailing from the Alumni Association with registration material for the June 1-3 weekend in Princeton.  Please note that we will have our own Class Dinner at Quadrangle Club on Friday, June 1.  You should return the orange card with a check for $45/person to Charlie Taggart.  The white card should be mailed in the white “Old Guard Reunion” envelope to make a reservation for the luncheon with President Eisgruber on Saturday and to reserve a golf cart for the P-rade.  The yellow card should be mailed to Mrs. Scheide to accept her invitation for her fabulous dinner party at the luxurious Jasna Polana Club on Saturday evening (which is always the highlight of the weekend for many Old Guard members).


Those Associates on our mailing list did not receive the full weekend registration package.  Instead they received a postcard indicating they should request a package from Dottie Werner at (609) 258-5451 or  Associates should call me at (609) 497-4740 if they have questions.
