Dear Milne Alumni and Supporters,


In this issue:

* Milne '48 Get-Together
* Class of 1964: A Touching Moment
* Sad News


Several alumni from the Class of '48 recently met for a mini-reunion. Attending were (from left to right in photo):

Clayton Besch, Ben Mendel, Bob Abernethy, Gordon Kilby,
and Jean Fausel Randles.


I received an email from Mark Lewis in which he told me that the class is planning on making a DVD of all the photos from their 45th reunion, but he wanted to share one particular touching moment:

"During our 'Aqua Duck' tour of downtown Albany, we yelled for the driver to stop. He thought there was some emergency. In actuality, we were driving past the 'Charles Shoudy Memorial Garden,' named in memory of our classmate Chuck Shoudy, who was killed in an automobile accident in 1997. At that time, Chuck was serving as Albany's Human Resources Commissioner. We took pictures and applauded. It was a moving experience."

Members of the Class of '64: Be sure to share your photos with other alumni!!
