We need help going out and finding people from classes —– 1946-’53, 1975-’80, 1993-’95, 1998-’12.  We are hunting primarily on Facebook and LinkedIn and are having good success, but we need more volunteers.  Hunt from your computer at home.  I have most of the names, but we need volunteers to contact them. If you can help, please send your contact information to:

Stan Smith, ’72
