Hey, 1966 Wildcats! I would like to personally thank everyone who attended our 50th reunion May 20-21. Great venue, great band and most of all great old friends. I'm sure I didn't get to speak to all of you (tried my best), but please know that I really appreciate each and every one of you that made the effort to attend. Your participation made all the work from the last 12 months worthwhile. You all were the reason for the reunion's success. I hope everyone had as good a time as Judy and I did. Please use this reunion as a reminder to keep in touch with each other. Hope to see you all next time if not sooner. May God bless all of you with health and happiness, David.
