    Comments Off on 2023 Reunion

    We had a fun reunion on May 2, 2023 at the Hilton Hotel in Center City. We had 23 people attend, including a couple grandchildren. Everyone had a great time chatting with other. We’re all definitely looking forward to getting together again next year.

    Dear classmates:

       Our 65th reunion was held on 5/3-5. Attending were:-

    Allan Becker, Bob Becker, Jerrold & Nancy Bonn, Jim & Natalie Dyen, Mal & Elaine Ecker, Ed & Sandra

    Epstein, Fred & Fran Friedman, Chick & Norma Golden, Chet Heller, Alan & Shirley Molod, Bob Price,

    Bob & Angela Rosin, Rick & Ruth Snyderman, Bob Spivak, Art Steinberg, Don & JoAnn Waldorf,

    Harvey & Linda Wenick, Les & Irma Wurtele.

       ABC News did two stories on our reunion. The first was taken at Central and was shown on the 

    10 O’clock news that night. The second was taken that night at the dinner at the Racquet Club and

    was shown the next night. It involved our singing of the school song.

       On Saturday we spent two hours at the National Constitution Center and two hours at the American

    Revolution Museum. No matter how knowledgeable you may be about our history, there are always

    things to be learned. That night we were at a cocktail party at the Snyderman’s beautiful apartment in

    center city.  The affair was wonderfully catered.

       On Sunday we had brunch at Bob Price’s house, a magnificant house in Mt Airy. Afterward the Golden

    Slipper Club invited us to a dinner to celebrate the life of Marc Specter.

       All in all it was spectacular weekend in which a good time was had by all.

  4. 65th class reunion news

    Leave a Comment

    Dear classmates:

       It turns out that hotel space is very difficult on the 5/3-5th weekend. Harvey Wenick told me that

    the only hotel space he could find downtown was at the Loews Phila. Hotel at 1200 Market St.

    There are still some rooms available, but I would not wait much longer. The cost is $359 per

    night including valet parking. Their phone number is 215-627-1200.

  7. Bob Bobrow has passed away

    Leave a Comment

    Dear classmates:

       Sadly Bob Bobrow has passed away in late April. He was one of the nicest members of our class, 

    with an extraordinary sense of humor. I remember at one of our class reunions where

    Bob did an extemporaneous stand up comedy routine that lasted about 20 minutes. He had us all in hysterics.

    He will be missed.
