The last newsletter advertised for someone to take charge of the October
outings. No one volunteered. I did receive a note from Steve Curry, who
now works at the Gaillard Auditorium. He asked if we would like to meet
for a performance at the Auditorium. Several meeting rooms are
available for getting together before the performance and during
intermission and the food service department would prepare pretty much
what we want to eat. If you are interested, please let me know and we
will talk to Steve about a show schedule and a time to come. Call me at
873-4596 or E-Mail me at email@example.com.
Barbara Stout wrote last September (too late for the newsletter): They
have 3 more grandchildren since she left POMFLANT. A little girl,
Kaylee, who was 15 months old in September and a set of identical twin
girls, Kelsey Paige Fullwood and Kendal Elizabeth Fullwood. They were
born 9 weeks early so they were pretty small, 3 lbs and 3 lbs, 4 ozs.
They were 9 months old in September and growing everyday.
Barbara said she was going through cancer treatment again, and hopefully
on the road to recovery.
This is the year Libby and I celebrate our 40th anniversary. For our
anniversary, we have booked a cruise with Norwegian, leaving Seattle
September 3rd, and touring the Alaskan coast. If anyone is interested
in going on a one week Glacier Bay trip, they can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for information. Our past four cruises with the
line have all been great values, and we are getting repeat customer
discounts. I guess cruises have been our favorite vacations.
Libby and I continue to work for the firms we have been with for some
time. I was promoted (likely for the last time in my second career
since I am not interested in a store manager position) to a regional
buyer for the Builders FirstSource. I am now traveling some in the new
position. I work for five stores in the western NC and northeast GA
areas. I attend buyers markets and shows several times a year, looking
for new products in the building industry and taking advantage of sale
prices on building materials, tools, etc. I purchase most of the
materials for my five stores, and that keeps me busy every day. Libby
continues to work for the regional TORO distributor. She is presently
competing in sales incentive programs for a one week trip to a Caribbean
resort in December and a one week stay on the Kona coast in January
2001. Needless to say, I give her pep talks every day! Please write us
or e-mail us when you have an opportunity. We would love to see all of
you again, and we are making plans to be in Charleston on April 9th."
Jim continues to enjoy his retirement after 45 ˝ years of government
service. He keeps busy with "honey-do's", volunteers 4 hours per week
at the WPNSTA Retired Affairs Office, and is commencing his 17th year as
a SC State Constable, working one day per week with the Berkeley County
Sheriff's Department, on a volunteer basis. We are both still in
relatively good health, for which we are truly thankful, and are
enjoying our new home. Looking forward to seeing everyone on April 9th.

We will attend the WWII D-Day commemoration ceremonies in New Orleans in
