   Dear Classmate,
                                           CLASS OF 1963 45TH REUNION:
                                                        MAY 16-17, 2008

   Recently a nice young lady from the Alumni Office called me and asked me
   what our plans were for our 45th reunion next year. I told her we didn’t have
   any plans – I didn’t think the 45th reunion was noted or celebrated, that it was
   a non-event. I was wrong. The School thinks it a worthwhile commemoration –
   a stepping stone to the expected 50th reunion. So we will celebrate – mark your
   calendars for our official 45th reunion celebration May 16th and 17th, 2008.
   We don’t have the specific plans yet, as we are in the process of setting up the
   various organizational committees.
   One of the ideas bandied about was a panel discussion of topical issues by
   various classmates. For example, Joe Glossberg who runs his own investment
   company has agreed to discuss investments – a timely topic given our retirement
   needs and the volatility of the markets. Bill Novelli, who is the head of AARP
   has also agreed to give his views on our potential retirement needs. Also,
   Marjorie Margolies, a former member of Congress, has agreed to give us a
   timely political perspective in what will be a presidential election year.
   Incidentally, Joe Glossberg suggested a theme for this reunion – the “recently
   retired but not yet expired.”
   For details as they develop, visit
   Please call with any suggestions or ideas; this is our reunion and our chance to
   celebrate and reconnect our friendships and ties to our great university.
   My home phone # is 215-928-1315. Call anytime.

CLASS OF 1963 45TH REUNION: MAY 16-17, 2008

45th Reunion Plans Shape Up
Plans for our 45th Reunion are underway. At press time, we have an exciting weekend on tap: Friday, May 16 we’ll head to the building known
in our day as FIJI for cocktails, then step out to a lovely tent in Annenberg Plaza for dinner. Saturday, May 17 brings the traditional Alumni Day
Picnic and Parade—you’ll find us in the 60’s tent on College Green. Stay tuned for details by email, and look for your reunion invitation by mail
in early March.

Your input is invited for our 45th Reunion. Contact classmates already on board for a lively weekend: Bob Aresty (NJ), Marjorie Margolies (PA),
Jon Stiklorius (PA), David Kollock (PA), Rosalie Cummins Shelton (PA), Sid Amira (NY), Lucy Hutchison Vosmek (OR), Joe Glossberg (IL),
and Susan Goldstein Frost (PA).

Give Back in Honor of Our 45th
The Class of 1963 has supported Penn generously in previous reunions, and we know that the 45th Reunion will be no exception. In addition to
supporting The Penn Fund and individual scholarships, our class projects include a study area in Van Pelt-Dietrich Library and additional
funding for the Class of 1963 College of Women Term Chair in the Humanities. We hope that we can count on your support as we strive to
raise our goal of $700,000 from 360 classmates in honor of our 45th reunion.

Reunion Keepsakes are Available
Remember the “class costume” of previous reunions? Everyone would obligingly purchase the same article
of Penn paraphernalia, which was usually worn only once on Alumni Weekend. We’re trying something a
little bit different this time: “reunion keepsakes” with the Penn logo and class year embroidered on the item
of your choice. To see the choices available, visit, click on the box at the right
that says REUNION LOGOS, and then click on the apparel option you’re interested in at the left. (Please
be patient if the logos read 1962 instead of 1963—our vendor was making that revision at press time.)

This process allows you to choose your favorite item, whether that is a sweatshirt, hat, or Oxford button-
down shirt. Having a greater selection will allow alumni to select keepsakes they will wear with pride for
years to come!

     President Amy Gutmann said the site would
     help unite University City with Center City and
     provide a gleaming “gateway to the University.”
     The first phase will convert the US Post Office
     to an IRS office for 5,000 employees with 2,400
     parking spots. Then by 2012, two new towers
     known as Cira Centre South will go up on 30th
     Street at Chestnut and Walnut Streets.
