Hello All,

It was good to see so many people at lunch today.  

Several of you offered your help for the reunion, and I want to thank you for that.  Currently, our main goal is to get people to respond if they are coming or not.  So, if you talk to friends regularly or occasionally, ask if they are coming, and if they are to let me know at  Or, call me directly at 310-961-6089.  If I don't recognize your number, please leave a message.  

I will send out 2 more reminders before the reunion.  As often happens "last minute"  before the reunion weekend, things will come up, and I will put a call for help then.  Again, thanks for all your offers, but I think it's covered for now.

I'm not under the illusion that anyone is holding their breath for the report of the monthly birthday lunch, but I do apologize for the delay in reporting on the March lunch.  There is a reason, but it's not all that interesting.  

So we did meet at the Range Cafe on Menaul, to celebrate the birthdays of (you may notice a theme, here) of Steve Brooks, Susan Thompson, Susan Myers Puckett, and Sandy Stewart Smallwood.  Also enjoying the food, the company, and the occasion were Helen Stambaugh Williams, Marcy McVay Cates, Mary Ann Simanek Villarreal, Mike and Ruth Wartell and granddaughter Sophia (always a treat!), Walt Huebner, Marty Glantz Farmer, Neal Kloepfer, Betty Myers Schaefer, Lorraine Barth and Ricardo, Jerry Goffe, Susie Strong Neuschwanger, and John Criswell, plus my friends Sandy Bryan, and Hank (LCHS '63) and Anna Nusbaum.  I'm not sure that everyone had a chance to see it, but Hank brought along a 1963 map of Albuquerque -- interesting to see where the city limits were at the time, as well as what streets have come and gone.  And I brought some chocolate chip cookies I had made, which seemed to vanish.  

And now, on to the April birthday lunch!  It will be on Monday, April 23rd, at 1 PM at Papa Felipe's, 9800 Menaul NE (Menaul and Eubank NE) -- as decided and devised by Marty Glantz Farmer and Marcy McVay Cates.  Reminder to come, before too long.  Looking forward!

This Friday on PBS it looks like Colores on PBS will contain a segment on the orchestra program at Highland. I will miss April's lunch because we will be in Colorado celebrating our daughter's 40th birthday. Where did the time go?!

Neal Kloepfer

Sorry, I will miss the April luncheon. On Sunday, April 22, I will be having lunch with Doug Turnage, Adele Parker, Karen White and maybe Gordon Paul (Spike) and Karen Hayes in the Phoenix area. If I remember, I'll get them help you all celebrate.

Thanks to those who have been checking in about the April birthday lunch!  We'll miss those who will be elsewhere, but I know that there will still be enjoyable company around the table. 

Meanwhile, I've been letting slide announcements of the monthly presentations at the Special Collections library, but they do continue, and a handful of us have continued to enjoy them -- usually followed by lunch. 

Making Change: Carrie Tingley
Join chataqua performer VanAnn Moore for an informative and entertaining look at the life of philanthropist Carrie Tingley. This is an extension of Moore's series, Amazing Women of the Wild West Territoria...
Date:    Saturday, April 14, 2018
Time:    10:30am - 12:00pm
Location:    Botts Hall, Special Collections Library

For those unfamiliar with chataqua, the presenter uses costumes and props and steps into the story and character of the person being portrayed, to bring alive the historic person.  I've seen some really remarkable ones. 

Anyone interested and available on Saturday morning?

Here's the reminder for the April birthday lunch!  It will be on Monday, April 23rd, at 1 PM at Papa Felipe's, 9800 Menaul NE (Menaul and Eubank NE) --  Marty Glantz Farmer and Marcy McVey Cates have graciously stepped forward to be the designated celebrants, and to collaborate to make it happen, many thanks!  

Several of the "usual suspects" have let us know that they're unavailable this month, so it may be a more intimate gatherings, a little different kind of experience.  Who else will join us?  Let us know!

I am doing grandmother duty, so I won't be there this time.  See you in May.

Sorry to say Monday lunch is tentative for me.  I have a dermatologist's appointment at 11:00 on Monday morning.  If the visit goes too long, I may not make the lunch.  So if I don't show, you know what happened!

Judy & I will attend 😊 Ellen Coyne Harvey
