ton shares plans for our 40th reunion in 2013: “Betsy Blades Skinner, Cathy Offinger, and others have offered their leadership as we move forward. It was a terrific team approach last reunion, and we will be ahead of the game this time, thanks to Joanne Rubin’s class communi- cations and our past experience.” Anne encourages classmates familiar with Sara - toga to send ideas for venues for our class dinner. Also, “please call your classmates and urge them to save the dates. Let’s see if we can surpass our goals in ’13.” Anne says that picking up son Tod at the close of his freshman year at Brown this past spring “brought back so many memories.” My term as president of the Lucas County Bar Association has ended. I was given a beautiful commissioned glass piece by a local artist for my years of serv- ice; I was very moved. For the 10th year in a row, Barry and I raised the most money for the Toledo Humane So ciety’s Bark in the Park. In fact, we hit a personal record of $5,400, for a 10-year total of $37,400. In recognition, I was invited on the local morning radio station and acknowledged in the Toledo Bar Association’s newsletter. My dog is a top-ten finalist, out of 200 pets (including a hen) in the Toledo Blade’s Pet Idol Contest. Thanks for your patience regarding

the glitches that kept our class notes out of the last issue. It meant a great deal to hear from so many of you. Our 40th reunion will come quickly, so save your vacation time and funds, and plan to renew your connections with classmates May 30 to June 2, 2013!
