From Terrell McMann:

If you didn’t make it to our 30th reunion, you can slap yourself, because we had a blast! Our theme, “The Times They Are A-Changin’,” was very well received. Jan Gollins brought some then-and-now posters, which really set the tone. I have plenty of news about the reunion, but it will have to wait until the next issue because I’ve received so many e-mails from classmates who couldn’t be there.

Bob Paulsen was unable to attend because he is general manager of a chain of beach department stores. Taking off a weekend in June is impossible.

From Marisue Brugler Easterly:

Betsey Brown Anthony wrote this update on the 35th reunion:

A great time was had by everyone who attended our reunion, and we’re sorry more of you couldn’t join us. On Saturday we met for the parade with our fearless leader, Dick Ditterline, complete with wig, outfit, and musical instrument. He wrote our original theme song, “Reunited.” Dick and his wife, Sue, have retired from their jobs—he was an Episcopal priest and she a librarian at the Bucks County Courier Times—and enjoy performing in community theater.

Our “couple” in the parade was Bob and Carol Ann Roman Norland. Bob got his Ph.D. in statistics at Stanford University and now is a statistical consultant at AT&T. Carol is an advocate for people with disabilities and an adult volunteer in Girl Scouting.

Barb Worsley Morgan won the prize for coming the farthest, from Odessa, Fla. She keeps busy with her family and her practice as an endodontist.

Kathie Broczowski Klein made our group complete for the parade by providing us all with records to wear.

My husband, Dick, and I came from Wayne. I enjoy volunteer work at two thrift shops and at our church.

Those not in attendance but who sent info included: Carol Carson Joseloff, from Connecticut, who recently retired from teaching in Bloomfield; Cindy Fox, a children’s center director from California; Kay Hill Hannan, an adjunct teacher in the external diploma program for adults at Towson University, outside Baltimore, Md.; Ken Hubbard, from Washington, D.C., who works in education, and his wife, Ginny, a nurse in the home health field; Paul Knipple, from Virginia, an agent with USAirways; Andy Madaychik, from New York, who owns a Christmas tree farm and is a partner in ICI Engineering Associates; Joan Kramer Mauer, from Virginia, chief clinical trials monitor at the National Cancer Institute; Lou Parker, from Easton, now disabled with a neural problem, who had been a sales office manager for Atlantic States Construction Iron Pipe Co.; Judy Plocher Kaaua, from Minnesota, a high school math teacher and accountant, now an independent Longaberger baskets sales consultant; Marie Proctor, from Whitehall, a school administrator; Judy Reynolds Morrison, from Camp Hill, who teaches fourth grade in the Cumberland Valley School District; Jeff Richards, from Connecticut, a webmaster for a pharmaceutical research and development department, who recently completed a book called The Principles of Synergism; Scott Stoneback, from Alburtis, whose company, the Media People, has completed more than 2,000 film and videotape productions and has received more than three dozen national and international awards; Lois Wadge Tropeano, who lives in Florida and works part time; Martha Garis Weidner, from Hamburg, who works at RTC Direct Mail; and Carol Wertz Sutter, from New Jersey, now starting her 10th year in real estate and her 25th of marriage.

NEWS OF 1966

From David Berg:

While in Virginia Beach this past March for the annual conference of the College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy, I sat down to dinner and began a conversation with the stranger next to me. He identified himself as classmate and Pi Mu fraternity brother Rev. David Henritzy, and we had a lot of catching up to do.

David is a United Methodist pastor and lives in White Plains, N.Y. However, for the past 15 years he has served the Episcopal Church USA as director for health-care ministry. David also had been in Cincinnati earlier in March for the annual meeting of the Association of Professional Chaplains, a conference I also attended. Next time, we’ll be looking for each other.

I continue my ministries as pastor of Glen Lutheran Church, Glen Burnie, Md.; as chaplain to 700 “seasoned citizens” at Fellowship Square Foundation in suburban Washington, D.C.; and as chaplain one day each week at Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis.

Jayne, my bride of three years, had spinal fusion surgery in early June and left the hospital 18 hours after surgery. Her recovery at home this summer has been much less dramatic. After Labor Day, she expects to return to her position as an obstetrics/gynecology nurse at Baltimore Medical Systems in East Baltimore.

Moravian’s D.C. Alumni Club re-elected me president this past spring. Alumni House director Bertie Knisely ’69 arranged for three members of the Athletics Department to join us for a delightful evening near the banks of the Potomac. Faye Stover Iudicello, Russell Morgan ’65 and Andy Semmell ’64 are quite active in our D.C. group.
