"RATHER BE THAN SEEM"
PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE April 2000
In just a few short months, Reunion 2000 will be upon us…50 years for my Class of 1950!
Very recently, Fred underwent double bypass and valve replacement surgery. He's doing well and hopes to attend Reunion 2000. This story was told to me by Paul Martinek, a '51 classmate who was at Penn State with Larry and Fred. RATHER BE THAN SEEM??????
We received word that Henry "Mitch" Meloney '14 passed away in August of 1999 at the age of 105 years. We honored "Mitch" as our Senior Cadet at the last Reunion, and I'm here to tell you that he walked my shoes off all over Bordentown with tales attached to just about every old house. His total recall was uncanny. He passed away just after putting the 18th green in Sedona, Arizona.
RATHER BE THAN SEEM?????? IS THERE ANY OTHER WAY??????
