We have received the following message from Roger Zuidema about the presentation he is doing for our class reunion:

“Paul I’m sending you by “Transferbigfiles” the first short segment of the Reunion Part 2 presentation I promised everyone.  It’s not long and shouldn’t take very long to download.  I’m sending to you so you can put it on the class website with hopes that I can get some ideas how to proceed and improve the rest of the project.  I’d like some ideas of what others would like to see and what they might like changed.  I have some ideas but I need some help.  One thing I would like is the name of comedians from back then that everyone remembers and likes.  Short clips from them to break up the picture segments is one idea I have.  If anyone has some good ideas I would really love to hear them.  My e-mail address is rogerzuidema@comcast.net.  I will appreciate any ideas you have”

The link to the “transferbigfiles” program is:  Reunion clip

This is from Charles Lang.   He has had quite an ordeal!

“Thought I would let you know that I got home from Las Vegas last weekend after being in the Hospital and a Rehab center for the past five months.  I got a massive infection in my right knee and it had to be completely removed and placed on anti-biotic.  The infection was brought under control, and a new knee was put in the end of March.  I was then sent back to the rehab center to get some Physical Therapy and try and get my strength back.  All in all I spent 150 days flat on my back except for a couple of hours a day the last month I was there.

Sure is nice to be home,  was told by my surgeon that it is going to take me a few months to get my strength back.”
