From Bob Houser: Our 50th class reunion is but four months away.  Save the dates; May 29 and 30th.  A class letter will be coming out in mid-February with details and following that, we have a few classmates that will be trying to make contact with each member of the class with a personal invitation and encouragement to attend.  If anyone would like to help makes calls, please let me know.  It promises to be a great set of events and a time to reconnect – maybe for the last time.

Jim Horwath ’66 has finally retired (well maybe).  His last full time position was Corporate Controller for Dakkota Integrated Systems, a supplier of subassemblies to the automotive industry with 12 locations throughout Michigan, Kentucky, Illinois, and Windsor, Canada.  Jim served in the Navy from 1966-1971 and was released from active submarine duty as a Lieutenant.  In 1998, he received his MBA from Southern New Hampshire University, graduating second in his class.  Jim and his lovely wife Jamie plan to travel, especially to North Carolina and New Hampshire where their six grandchildren are located and, (well maybe) he will continue to work one to two days a week.

James Groff is being inducted into Pennridge-Quakertown sports Hall of Fame in May.  Groff enjoyed standout football careers at both Pennridge and at Moravian and had two tryouts with the Philadelphia Eagles.  A halfback-safety who led the Rams in rushing, scoring and interceptions in his junior and senior seasons, the 1961 Pennridge grad also starred in multiple track events and lettered in basketball.  At Moravian, he lettered twice while playing both offense and defense. 

Bob Houser writes:
Nothing new, but nothing that few of our classmates are sending in any notes about where you are.  In three years, we will be commemorating our 50th year since graduation.  Whoa, that’s a long time ago!  Let’s start talking this up and let’s start hearing from each of you as to where you are, what you are doing in retirement, or if you are still working- what you are doing.  We’re all over the hill and picking up speed on the way down, so let’s start sharing notes.

“I recently got together with Phil Bees, ’68, and renewed a friendship after some 46 years of no contact.  We enjoyed dinner out in Myrtle Beach with our brides (both of 40+ years) and then we played golf the following day.  We won’t relate who walked away with bragging rights, since we both performed a bit below average.  We shared lots of laughs and memories.  Phil resides in Summerville, SC, just outside of Charleston.  Phil spent most of his time at Moravian with the class of ’65.  He looks great!

From the Alumni House:
Kevyn DePuy Malloy writes in, “Are there other non-retirees out there?  After twenty years as a psychologist (preceded by eleven years as a restauranteur and ten years as a stay-at-home mom) seven years ago I became an Executive Coach with a specialty in Leadership Development.  Three years ago I also became the Director of Learning for MentorCoach (www.mentorcoach.com), a school that teaches psychologists to become coaches.  This means that I am busier than ever and enjoying every minute of it.  Because most of my work is done on the phone, I am able to spend 6 months in Vermont and 6 months in Pennsylvania.  I’d love to hear from classmates residing in either state!”

From Bob:
       We had a small gathering for our 45th reunion, but are hoping for a huge return for our 50th in 5 more years. Ted Bowman, who joined us at the 45th, sent a note of interest. "Classmates may have interest in a new book, just published. It is an edited book of poetry addressing themes of loss and renewal, all written by Minnesota poets. The book, The Wind Blows, The Ice Breaks, contains 140 poems by over 100 poets. The publisher is Nodin Press. For more information, classmates could go to my web site: www.bowmanted.com.” I trust all our classmates are doing well out there in "retirement" or semi- retirement. Let us hear from you.

From Bob Houser:  To the Class of ’65! I’ve recently taken over as the class correspondent but with the new system, you can enter your own inputs.  With that said, I’m more than happy to put it in for you if you send me the information.  I have recently retired from a second career and picking up a more leisurely life.  If you get to the Wilmington NC or Myrtle Beach SC area - give me a call. Cheers, Bob
