50th Reunion Snail-Mail Letter and Questionnaire

This blog article contains a link to the reunion letter and questionnaire snail-mailed on May 12, 2009. You invited to print the questionnaire from the blog article and submit it. This may come in handy, especially if you misplace the letter and questionnaire.

Each of you can help minimize the workload on Roger Sherman by emailing to him the answers to the questions on the lower half of the questionnaire. It will much easier for him to cut and paste your text than to type your handwritten responses. Windows users may use Notepad, which is a part of the Windows Operating System, to prepare their answers in a text format. I am not a MAC user, but I believe TextEdit is used with a MAC, just as Notepad is used with Windows. When finished, attach the text document to an email and fire it off to Roger at I am sure that Roger would love it, if you email your answers in today or even yesterday. He has a great deal of work to do. NOTE: You will still need to snail-mail the upper half of the questionnaire back to us with your reservations and money.
Roger asks that, in an effort to identify and fight SPAM, you put LHS in the subject of any email that you send to him.  By doing so, you will make it easy for him to determine that you are not a sinister force.

The letter does not contain information about a Sunday brunch at Cleveland Heights Golf and Country Club because we are trying to keep Sunday informal and off of the agenda. However, for planning purposes, we'd like to know how many of you would plan to attend this brunch. Please email me, Allan Davis, at or Beatty Raymond at with your intentions.

The letter does contain one error. It indicates that October 24 is a Friday. Actually, October 23 is a Friday.
