50th Reunion Book


Classmates, you can still order a reunion book and read what your classmates say about their interesting lives! Just send a check for $15 to Gail Marx Salinger at 2388 Pebble Beach, Riverwoods, IL 60015, and a book will be on its way to you.

Keeping in mind that this is not a perfect world and that to be perfect is to offend the gods, we have managed to weave into the book a startling imperfection. On page 75, we inadvertently omitted the name of Judy Price Goldman. (Well, it's there, but it got hidden behind her photos.) Our sincere apologies to Judy - we've tried to make it up to her by sending her a perfect book, which she is keeping hidden from the gods. And for the rest of you, now you know who our mystery classmate is.

Below are some comments on the book from your fellow classmates.

I had no time until 11 PM last night to take a look at the book. It is just perfect. I took it to bed to just glance through. The next thing I knew, it was after 1 AM. I have not finished reading everyone's info. My obligations today have cut into my ability to finish the book. I guess I may have another late night. The time and effort put into creating the book shows in every detail. I know that anyone who looks at the book will be overwhelmed.

I can't stop looking at the reunion book.

What a magical weekend. I keep poring over the bio book.

The Reunion Book is FABULOUS!! You’ll love it. It couldn’t be better. I’m sure it will win the Pulitzer Prize in the reunion book category. (Why am I not surprised about that)!

I just wanted to thank you for the exceptional work on the book...truly an epic piece!

Thank you for putting together such a marvelous reunion book for all of us. It really was a treat to read and I would love to talk with some of my classmates about the amazing, unexpected things they've done over the decades. It has been fascinating to read it, and I deeply appreciate all the hard work you put into making it so classy and thorough.

Thank you so much for putting together the reunion book. It is truly a work of art and a wonderful remembrance.
Betty Goldfarb Klenn

Thank you to everyone who attended and submitted their bios. I spent
almost the entire trip home reading them. What a wonderful moment
occurred each time I greeted someone I had not seen for so many years.
Nancy & Alan Spector

High point, getting the BOOK! I spent that night reading it and then re-reading it, trying hard to remember who had done what, where, and when. There was so much in that little book. All our lives, packed into 120 pages, including the addendum. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
