 How lucky we are to have had fifty years of health and adventure since our      Richard Bell
 graduation from college in 1959! It is only appropriate that we take some       Bill Bodine
 time out of our lives to celebrate the accomplishment and joys of those         Anne Prather Cammack

 years as well as remember the years we shared as undergraduates at Tran-        Mary Jo Pruitt Coomer
 sylvania.                                                                       Myra Jane Owen Crowley

 We can’t share with our classmates the memorable things in your life since
 last we assembled as a class, but we are trying to put together a list of those things that we have remembered
 from our days together. To that end, we have put a list of some of them gleaned from the reunion committee,
 and we ask you to e-mail or write one or the other of us with any more you would like to add. The statute of
 limitations has run out on any misdemeanors so don’t be shy about telling tales now! We will add your
 memories to the list and hope to have a terrific ―memory guide‖ prepared to distribute at the reunion. The e-
 mail addresses for Anne and Peggy are at the end of this letter, as well as addresses for both. We look for-
 ward to hearing from you.

 Please participate in this collection and respond to the formal invitations which you will receive from the
 alumni office. Our reunion will be as great as the crowd that gathers which means it can’t be really great if
 you don’t come!

 We are looking forward to seeing you there,
