Dear Wheatley Wildcats and Other Interested Persons,

Writes Larry: “Art, The Third Annual (?) Unofficial San Francisco Bay Area Wheatley Reunion Potluck is history, and I’m pleased to report the gathering of Wildcats was a roaring success! Friendships were renewed, new ones made, remembrances were shared, tales were told, food and drink were excellent, smiles abounded.”

Continues Larry - “Many thanks for all your work, Art! This newsletter should definitely help boost next year’s reunion turnout; without your editing and publishing of my many updates, this year’s reunion would have certainly been a far more modest affair.”

Writes Art Engoron - Larry’s terrific Northern California reunion could act as a template for others. Off the top of my head, unscientifically, Wheatley grads have congregated where you’d expect: around Boston, D.C., North Carolina, Southern Florida, Southern California, Northern California, and the Pacific Northwest.

Closing

That’s it for The Wheatley School Alumni Association Newsletter # 158.  Please send me your autobiography before someone else sends me your obituary.
