Dear Friends and Classmates,
Now that summer is over and fall is in the air, we can begin planning for our 2005 reunion, which will be held in Chicago, Illinois - July 13 to 16, 2005. I propose we make it a 4-day holiday, so we can enjoy each other longer. Chicago has a new Millenium Park and the city has undergone new renovations and beautifications of the lakefront. Your former classmates here are eager to see you and show you our beautiful city. You are going to be joined by;Rolando Siwa
