DTD at MC #62
Sunday, March 23, 2008
Good morning to everyone,
I have a confession to make. In order to try to find more of our missing brothers, I went to the Alumni Office at the college the other day. I spoke to Hub Burton, who is the VP of Alumni Relations. He is a Delt (from the UofA - where I used to live) and I shared our email list with him. If anyone does not want the college to have your email address, please let me know and I'll get him to remove it from the college database.
I did, so far, get the addresses of 3 of our brothers that I didn't have. So it is a good thing in one way. The new brothers that are found are: Peter Noll , Bill Buzzell, and Todd Myers **removed for privacy reasons**. Welcome home guys.
Let me take a minute to get you up to speed as to what this email is for. Originally it was to encourage attendence at the chapters 40th Anniversary on the Marietta Campus. By the way that will be at homecoming this fall, October 24-26. I hope that you will be able to join us for the festivities. I will list below the names of the brothers who have let me know of thier intentions to be here in Marietta.
The email, over time has kind of taken on a life of its own, thanks to the efforts of several brothers. Almost every edition has notes from alums about what is going on with them. Also, from our email directory several brothers have gotten in touch with friends that they haven't talked to in years. You can access the directory at the chapter website www.marietta.edu/~delts the password is: **removed, if you need it please contact Rick Neel or the chapter** Please take advantage of it to contact some brothers you have lost contact with over the years. Also, if you are in contact with anyone that we don't have listed, let me know.
We also have a Blog - http://mcdeltalumni.blogspot.com where we have collected almost all of the emails, as well as messages from some other delt alums. Again, welcome back to EY, I hope to see you at homecoming.
Time is getting closer for our annual Alumni golf outing. It will be held the 4th weekend in April, that is the 26th. Dave Broome is coming in and we are planning on sitting down and going over some of the material he has collected for our 40th anniversary booklet. Anyone interested is welcome to sit in with us and throw in your 2cents worth. And if you have any memorabelia to share, bring it with you.
Steve Fox sent me the following note:
Steve Fox here (71). I will be unable to attend the reunion in October. My wife is retiring and we are going to Hawaii the for two weeks starting the 25th of October. Maybe I will make the next one. Enjoy your updates. Keep up the good work.
I just don't understand Steve, what possibly could Hawaii offer in October that Marietta doesn't? Just kidding, congratulations to your wife, may she have a very happy retirement. See you next time.
Neal Mettler sends the following;
Rick At this point in time I think I will be able to make it. Several of my daughters are planning on attending also.
How many daughters are you bringing Neal? Do we need to lock up the undergrads? Smitty Smith sent me the following note:
I'm glad that I have been comfirmed for the 40th, but I have a few questions...!st to what address and to whom do we write the check to for the $50/person payment? And if we have pics from back in the day, would anyone want them to digitize and add to a slide show or the booklet? The reason I ask is cause I got some. Let me know.
your friendly neighborhood Smitty '00
I think I answered you Smitty, but if not, here goes. You can mail your check payable to Crescent Colony of Marietta, Inc. to Bob Ferguson at **removed**. Note on the check that it is for homecoming 08. You can mail your slides to me at **removed** and I'll see that they get to Dave Broome. Thanks for the slides, those are like gold to us.
From Greg Maloof I got this note and new address;
As usual an excellent job !! Moving is a big pain for me; computer challenges are worse; and you seem to conquer both. Bruce Miller never ceases to amaze me. He had another great idea. Pam & I will be attending. Also, new e mail: **removed**. Thanks for all you do.
I have to agree with the statement about BAM. He seems to do that alot.
I have a commitment from Randy (AWK) Williams to lead the memorial service for our departed brothers at the banquet. He is an excellent ritualist and I'm sure he'll do a good job for us. This will be an opportunity for you to share a thought about one of our departed brothers. Let me relist the schedule of events for the 40th for those of you who may have missed it the last time.
