Note from Dale Dietrich:  I am a retired high school mathematics teacher.  Wrestling for Moravian in the 60’s opened many doors for me.  I coached wrestling in the Warwick and Manheim Township School Districts for 35 years; was inducted into the Lancaster-Lebanon League Wrestling Hall of Fame last year and am currently serving my second term on the Lehigh University Wrestling Board of Directors.  I have six grandchildren as well.

Ronald Robertson writes, "My first book, Optimism For A Changing America, was recently published. This book was written to promote a real sense of optimism for the future of America, utilizing little-published trends. Inspired by my students at Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Delaware, who urged me to compile some of my lecture material, this book is written for those who question the future of this great nation."

Garry Earles continues his work as a nationally recognized trainer, speaker and consultant on child and adolescent mental health conditions and accompanying issues. Over the past 10 years I've presented hundreds of all-day seminars, delivered numerous keynote addresses and consulted with thousands of educators and clinicians alike to help them understand and appreciate the experience youth undergo when challenged by a mental health condition and the accompanying issues such conditions generate.
For more about his work, visit his website: www.garryearles.com. He hopes all his classmates are doing well and sends special "shoutouts" to Johnny, Spinner, Dinesh, Corky, Beverly, Martha and Lance.  He would love for classmates to drop him a line at gle1@comcast.net and say hi.

Johann Michael Miklos recently made a presentation at ESALQ (USP) in the city of Piracicaba in Paulo State, the number one university in Brazil, to a group of students and professors on the theme of pelletization of native wood.  He explained that after living 15 years in the Amazon area one learns, but most importantly is shown how to have permanent sustainability of the Amazon forest.  Johann has made presentations in other countries but called this one unique since it reminded him of when he was a student at Moravian.  During his introductions he mentioned Moravian College.

From the Alumni House:

It is with great sadness that we report the death of Diane Williams Fosco. She passed away suddenly in her home on December 24, 2009. We will truly miss Diane and her wonderful spirit. Her devotion to Moravian College never diminished from the time she graduated until her death. She was an active alumna who not only attended many alumni and college events but who volunteered on committees such as the Alumni Weekend committee, the Lehigh Valley Alumni Home Club, and the reunion planning committee; whenever help was needed Diane was there to lend a hand. Diane was always proud to say she graduated from Moravian College. As many of you may know, Diane’s best friend Denise Maday Greiner, passed away in November. Days before her passing, Diane sent us this wonderful tribute she had written about her friend, Denise. Diane is certainly missed by the many people whose lives she touched.

From Diane:

A light like the Star of Bethlehem has gone out in this world. Her name was Denise Maday Greiner. She was brilliant, according to Dr. Burcaw she completed the New York Times cross word puzzle at his house in ink during the practice sessions for The College Bowl. Even at the end of her life, she and her daughter Jennifer were winning prizes in Trivia contests every week by beating teams of six in New Jersey where she spent the past year.
She was joyful and loved to dance and to sing in her church choir  also serving on Council many years. She was gentle, tending to children, flowers and pets with the same care she gave to everyone she met. She was compassionate always ready with a supporting hug and shopped in the thrift stores for clothing she mailed overseas to the less fortune in third world countries. She was faithful, a real Christian whose deeply held beliefs were lived out in her daily existence.
In short, Denise was beautiful inside and out, an example of the best specimens our Creator has given to the world. And she was my best friend from the first time we met in Spanish class  in the third floor of Comenius Hall with our dinks and placards through many wonderful years of camping, cutting Christmas trees with our daughters and bragging about our grandchildren.
I believe the quote is from Camus and goes something like this: Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don't walk behind me, I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend. And so she walked with us and now with our Lord.

The below remembrance of Denise was sent in by Johann Michael Miklos:

“As a foreign student at Moravian , I must go back and remenber the great human being that was Denise, it was one of the persons that always had a friendly conversation in the Union Building. It is sad for me and certaily for my friends Jim Keim and Charles Miller boh class of 69 that we lost a companion of the Golden years at Moravian. Certainly we will meet in the future when we both will be spiritual travellers.”
