Dear Classmate:

We are offering for purchase the class crest pins, class ties, and class print note cards remaining from our 40th reunion.

The sale is first come, first served until all are sold.  (Quantities shown below are as of 12/11/2003.)

I have 11 class ties. They were given to the guys at the reunion and are 100% silk. The tie is gray with wide black stripes and narrow gold stripes on either side of the black stripe and our class crest centered near the bottom.

The cost is $22 per tie.

I have 5 boxes of class print note cards. The note cards are 4 5/8" by 6". Each box has ten cards. The class print -- One Flag, One Country, One Destiny -- by Don Stivers is on the front of the card.

The cost is $9 for the first box, $8 for the second -- the max I can mail in one order is two boxes.

If you would like to purchase any of these items, please contact me by
sending me an e-mail at eabrown@erols.com as soon as possible to ensure I have inventory remaining. At that time, I'll send you ordering information.

Class Gift Dedication

Reconciliation Plaza, the Class of 1961 Class Gift was presented to the United States Military Academy in a Dedication Ceremony on Friday, October 5.  The Plaza is a memorial which commemorates the reconciliation between the North and the South and is dedicated to our Classmates who gave their lives in service to our Nation - those who died as a result of action during the Vietnam War and those who died in military accidents in time of war.  It also honors the members of the Classes of May and June 1861 who died as a result of action during the Civil War.  LTG William J. Lennox, Jr., Superintendent, USMA, accepted this memorial.

The principal speaker for the dedication was Pat C. Hoy II.  His address, entitled "Reverberations", deeply touched all present.
