My Takeaway from Flip Flops and Wine Event
Cavaliers, You Rock. I want to send a heartfelt thank you to everyone that participated by making the sacrifice to do so, to any of the event options. We are blessed. We had amazing weather. The venues were spectacular. I can't take all the credit. I had wonderful guidance and energy provided from others. Capt Pat inspired me. Michael P provided much encouragement and advice. Pat Fink (Wendy) put in a lot of time and energy. She spent many hours on the phone giving quality planning advice. She came up a day early from Georgia to make sure things fell into place for our successful gatherings. Rita Ritner, who started assisting, could not give up the opportunity to travel out of the country, but she was involved in early planning. Many thanks to Tom Urman who provided valuable input and took most of the pictures that were posted for us. He captured the enjoyment had by all. John Flynn shared his love for, and experience that landed us in the North Beach area.
As we wrapped things up Thursday evening at Skippers Pier, Chris Cavas approached the topic of "What's Next". Good call Chris! With Nancy Watson's assistance an Exit Survey is posted on this website to collect your thoughts from this event and moving on to our next adventure(s). Please take time to give your input and share it with us. it will help us to plan ahead. We are having too much fun to give up now.
Lastly, I would like to say I heard from many of our classmates who would have liked to have been with us but had circumstances or difficulty this time. Please, if you can, reach out to Cheryl Prohaska, Vikki Hale, Sandra Kennedy Shaffner, Wanda Rizner. let's keep in touch with all our friends.
It's been my pleasure serving our class. I learn so much from all of you and thank you for letting me get to know you better.
Love you all. Hope to see you again soon, or until next year...
Take care, stay well.

The main event on Thursday night at Skippers Pier restaurant  showed some of seventy plus classmatres and friends that showed up and had a great time.

Shout out to Doug Silvern for organizing the 2022 gatherings of the class of 1971! I just wish I could be in two places at once (when we not anywhere at all-Firesign Theatre!).
The cruise was delightful and what a joy to see Brigid!
and thanks to Pam Brown for driving. It was fun to have both Pam Browns together.
Some folks asked about my artwork (shameless self-promotion here).
I am a member of Printmakers Inc, Studio 14 at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria VA.
A schedule shows when I am gallery sitting:
but if you let me know you are coming in, I can probably meet you there.
