Class of '53
May 2003

Dear Classmates,

It’s surprising what sticks in your mind and what doesn’t.  What’s echoing through mine as I write this is:

Remember the times you had here

Remember when you’re away

Remember the friends you made here

And don’t forget to

Come back some day!

The time has almost arrived for that occasion.  If, for some reason or another, you let this big celebration pass you by it is not too late to get on board.  A call to the Alumni Office at (1-800-487-8437) will get you a pass to the memories, the delicious food, the transformed campus and your esteemed classmates.

Please come and join in the hoopla.  As we used in a TM banquet theme―oh, so many years ago―

In time, take time while time doth last.

For time is no time

When time is past

Can’t wait to see you,

Jo Anderson Linnes

1953 Guest Letter Writer
