in response to the recent mailing about the October 29 all school reunion:
"Margaret, I'm interested in the reunion in October. Got your card today. I'm
assuming that it will take place in Bloomington. Ind. I'm interested in hearing
from anyone in the '48 class. I just had one year at U.H.S. which obviously was
my senior year. I remember many of the kids really quite well. Perhaps you have
the ability to forward this message to all those on the '48 listing.
Thanks, Steve Sutherland
