  4. Sorry to here about your Dad. Glad to get in touch with you. I’m guessing that there will be a reunion in 2011. Hope to see you there. I was just remembering names and putting them into the search engine and found this with you in it. Hope life has treated you kind. Will be at Brennen’s Beach @ Pulaski this coming summer, a good possible location for the reunion. They have all kinds of amenities for the day and lots of room. Right on the Great Lake Oneida and a big room for a get together. Have an in with the staff! I’ll still have to contact them. Do you still play football? I still play the drums and sing abit. Good Luck and Health to you and yours.
