Hats off to ’58! There may be snow here in New England, but we are full of June at Bates. We are excited at the high level of interest as more and more of you plan to come to our 40th Reunion, June 5-7. If you haven’t yet decided or never have come to a Reunion, now’s the time. Take a deep breath and sign up. You’ll have a great time…and be amazed at the ties that bind, even after 40 years. Official registration forms will be out in April but, even if you just think you may come, drop a line to Harry Bennert so we can keep that list growing. And how about calling those special Bates friends you’d like to see at Reunion? Keep your eye on your Bates Reunion refrigerator magnet and imagine yourself at the lobster bash on Bailey Island in June. See you there!

Paul is alive and well and in good humor in Brockton, Mass.
