New Directions International Alumni

Dear Class of ’69,

Patt and I send you our belated congratulations on your recent historic “40th Anniversary Class Reunion.”  Also our Christmas and New Year’s Greetings.  We really enjoy getting annual Christmas cards from so many of you.  Like us, some of you are already grandparents!
