Dear Milne Alumni and Supporters,

* A Puzzle

* Sad News


On Sunday, January 10th, Laurie Richter, the daughter of Alan RICHTER, '65, granddaughter of the late Irving RICHTER, '33, and grandniece of the late Harriet RICHTER Koblintz, '38, married Jonas Spector in Bal Harbour, FL. Dick ETTELSON, from the Class of '68, performed the ceremony. There were seven Milne grads/attendees at the wedding (listed in order of class year): Leona RICHTER Toppal, '47; Judy KOBLINTZ Madnick, '61; Alan RICHTER, '65; Barry RICHTER, '68; Dick ETTELSON, '68; Carol RICHTER Roffman, '70; and Chuck ETTELSON, '70. It was wonderful to be together for such a happy occasion...and have the opportunity to reminisce about our years at Milne.


Don't forget that the Milne Alumni website contains other pages to which you may contribute! For example:

Clubs and Activities (Have we missed any?)
Milne Business Directory (Free advertising!)
Birth Dates (Do we have yours?)
Hall of Fame (Any suggestions?)


See if you can determine what these words have in common. (This is what happens when I don't have many articles for the newsletter!!)

  1. Banana 
  2. Dresser 
  3. Grammar 
  4. Potato 
  5. Revive 
  6. Uneven 
  7. Assess 
Are you peeking or have you already given up? Give it another try.... 
Look at each word carefully. You'll kick yourself when you discover 
the answer. This is so cool....
No, it is not that they all have at least 2 double letters.... 
Did you figure it out? No? Then send to more people and stump them as 
well. You'll feel better too. The answer is at the end of this newsletter.


Dorothea Margaret STEPHENSON, '34, passed away on December 14, 2009.

Dr. Ruth Aronson, mother of Naomi ARONSON Youngerman, '67, David ARONSON, '71, Marc ARONSON, '74/'75, and Saul ARONSON, '77 (non-grad), passed away on December 17, 2009.

H. Judson LOCKWOOD, '54, passed away on December 17, 2009. He was the brother of four other Milne graduates: Richard LOCKWOOD, '59; Kenneth LOCKWOOD, '61; Stanley LOCKWOOD, '64; and Linda LOCKWOOD Burke, '68.

Answer to the puzzle: In all the words listed, if you take the first letter, place it at the end of the word, and then spell the word backwards, it will be the same word. Thanks to Carol RICHTER Roffman, '70, for emailing this puzzle to me.

Thanks to all of you for your interest in Milne Alumni activities.

Judy (Koblintz) Madnick, '61
