Dorothy (Young) Carruthers writes: "In May 2008, we lost a member of our Round Robin letter group - Evelyn (French) Braunfeld, who was residing in Litchfield, N.H. That brings our original membership to three. However, we do have five who write, as Effie (Winn) Torrey took her sister Lillian's place and Sue (Dempsey) Olson writes in her mother Rose's spot. The three remaining original members are Marion (Dennis) Thorell, Betty (Baird) Brown, and myself. We lost Martha (Bishop) Wood in 2004. A monetary contribution in Evelyn's name will be made to KSC to add to the class of 1940's Recording Equipment Fund.
IN MEMORIAM: Evelyn Braunfeld '40

From Caroline "Nickie" Pregent: "Our reunion weather was glorious. Every day was well planned and a happy one. We missed all the classmates who were unable to join us. Our display of class memories drew the attention of many. The classmates who came to enjoy the weekend were: Barbara (Brown) Charbonneau, Mary (Farman) Bergeron, Louise (Whitten) Perkins, myself, Christine Sweeney, and Art and Pat Shedd and their son, Skip. Skip was such a help to all of us. We enjoyed the taking pictures, the annual parade, and a great luncheon. Many stories were retold, and we were all happy to be present.

Ellie (Smith) Butler writes: "We missed all of you who did not get back for our 60th reunion, but we knew you had us in your thoughts. Of the 22 left in our class, four of us returned. Jean (Harding) Maxwell, Joyce (Chickering) Jernberg, Maggie Parker (all the way from Hawaii), and I enjoyed reminiscing about the old days in Fiske and Huntress Hall. We wandered through the newly renovated Fiske trying to recall which rooms we occupied, remembered our old roommates, and let old memories surface of escapades we pulled off when Miss Esten was not watching.
