Always good to hear from our class. Here’s the latest news. Please email me your updates so I can include it next time. Thanks so much! Amy Locker Krug writes: I won’t be able to attend our June 2016 reunion. Our daughter Emily who lives in Texas will be in Pennsylvania that weekend for a wedding. We don’t see her that often, so we will be here to help around the wedding activities. My news is that I retired from teaching in June. I also retired from making costumes for the high school play. I plan to help, but not be in charge. I am enjoying my free time by remodeling our 25 year old kitchen, working in our gardens, reading, stitching and babysitting our grandchildren. This summer I was elder caregiving to Bob’s parents as they stayed at their summer house in Troy, New York for six weeks. It was peaceful and relaxing with various family coming up the weekends. Our daughter, Carrie will have her third baby (a girl) in February. This will be our 5th grandbaby. Bob and I will also celebrating our 40th anniversary on the Hood reunion weekend. We will be thinking of our classmates as you celebrate at our June reunion. Cheryl Kruse Rondorf writes: Neil & I had a great trip to Madrid, Spain in October. We experimented with getting a private room from the website Air BnB. We scored with a gracious hostess in the center of the city and had a great time exploring the sights. Neil had to start working with his undersea cable protection committee people the following week, but I continued to have many adventures. We found out while we were gone that our oldest son, Sean, had been selected to be pinned for E-7 in the Army (Sergeant first class.) I was able to drive down to Fayetteville, North Carolina, Ft. Bragg and watch this event take place and spend time with our four year-old granddaughter. I learned that the majority of the Army soldiers retire at E-6, so this made the promotion even nicer!Our second son is an 8th grade special education teacher in Colorado Springs. We went out to visit them this past June and welcome their second daughter and our 4th grandchild. I celebrated my 60th birthday November 2014 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with our daughter, Kira, welcoming our third grandchild, a baby boy. Our youngest son and his wife live in Virginia Beach. I started a new hobby last summer when I bought an embroidery sewing machine. It has been fun learning all the different techniques. We are looking forward to Neil’s retirement next year, so we can spend more time with our grandchildren and various friends across the country. Barbara Woolmington-Smith reports…. No weddings, no grandbabies, still working (sigh), will try to get to our reunion. We are looking to sell our home in spring and downsize – possibly to the Sacramento area. My main occupation is figuring out how to down size all the “stuff” accumulated over 25 years of living in one house. Ebay is my best friend! Larry & I visited Scott & Lois Vandermark Moore in Woodbridge, Virginia. Larry & I attended his 40th USNA reunion in October. It was a record breaking turnout. We had so much fun reconnecting with classmates. Let’s do it again, this time for our Hood class reunion in June. Please mark your calendars for June 10-12. See you then!
