40th Reunion Thanks

Many people have written thanking one and all for a great reunion. Here are copies of some of the emails:

Larry Schell

The weekends' events were a real treat. It was good to see you all, even if briefly. I wish I could have stayed at the picnic longer and will have to make up for that over the coming years.
Thank you all - Steve, Theo, Lenore, Peter, Alan and others for putting time into this - it was a one of a kind.
Best to all,


Sally Gates

Hi Everyone,

I am so jealous of all of you from the class of '66 who were together last weekend ( and those lucky few from '67!). All of the emails have prompted many, many good memories. Let me echo whoever said I hope some of the '66'ers come to visit the class of '67 next year! My plans are made - I'll be there!

Best to all,


Violeta Cunha

I don’t know how many will still join this most deserved e-mail but back home and to “reality” had to say that the “real reality”, in life, is the warmth, the camaraderie and the exhilarating atmosphere shared by everyone involved.

On my part, and being quite selfish, I have to say that it was great to feel welcomed and cared for. Thank you.

Love, Violeta

Annie, Nancy Lorenz and I had a mini reunion Saturday and have already discussed a follow up event
I hope we can include our class of 66 friends. The whole week end was a great time.

You have a beautiful home.
Thank you.

Lenore, Theo, Allen, Peter, Steve,

I wish to join all the thanks that have been emailed to you. It was one of my best ideas in the last years to spontaneously decide to come to the reunion weekend. I did not expect anything so special, I was just curious to see some of my Buckingham classmates again. And it turned out to be one of the greatest events I have been in within the last years. Thank you so much for all the work you invested! And also thanks to all who came - now I have an even greater incentive to travel all over the US and see people again (as a matter of fact, I will probably be back in fall).

So I hope to see you all again sooner or later.

Love to all

I'm back to a machine so I can join the chorus of thank yous what an addition to the the thousands of things to think about sorry that there wasn't more time and that I didn't get to talk to everyone just like real life Neddy called while I was away earlier this week I'll tell all and make him feel like he missed a big treat and maybe just maybe next time

your hospitality and all the effort you put out to make this last weekend happen was lovely. you should be proud of the fact that you made your class have a great party whether they wanted to or not - the phrase "kicking and screaming " comes to mind.

I don't think it could have been improved upon. of course the rain and no bocce, but what can you do.


Lenore Gessner Travis

I hope I am not speaking out of turn as I attempt to speak not only for myself, but for Theo, Allen, Peter and Steve, to say we had such fun organizing this--there was joy to e mails flying back and forth, and luncheon meetings, so that the process was great, and the fact the the reunion turned out to be such fun was icing on the cake! THANK YOU to all who came, some from great distances, some local, for taking the time, making the effort, and coming and sharing. To those who were unable to attend, we missed you, and I hope you can see from Theo's web site of pictures, and these e mails, that a grand time was had by all, and we should do it again!

Personally, I'd still like to have a GARDEN party (no rain)--so you are welcome here if we do a 45th!

Best to all--Lenore

Me, three. I just got back from Boston this evening. What a wonderful weekend! Such a pleasure to catch up with old friends and talk about the old days. And special thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make Saturday's event happen.

Love to all,


Jeff Rudman

may i please second fred's comments and thanks? it was just a wonderful day and a reproach to the adage that man make plans to make God laugh. all the planning worked and those of us who did no work have much to be grateful for.

Fred Lappin

Theo: Thank you for all of your hard work in creating the wonderful and on-going record of our class.
Lenore: Thank you for your warm and generous hospitality.
Steve: Thank you for your considerable efforts in putting together a terrific event.
Our Classmates: Thank you for your efforts to keep our class together...I never remember how important it is until I see everyone.

It was a fun day and great to see everyone! Until the next time.....Be well.


Allen Schiller

PHENOMENAL weekend! Exceded all expectations. Job well done to you all.
