Dear Fellow Classmates of DCSM '61

First things First: Fran (Oborny) Pachta reports that the memorial for Jerry Reisdorff yielded $390.00 from seventeen (17) of the remaining twenty-six (26) classmates of DCSM '61, and also $ 25.00 from the class of '61 reunion account. That's great.

Fran told me that she gave the money to Sister Michaelene and she was "tickled pink"!

For those of you who have not yet had or taken the opportunity to send in a memorial in Jerry's name to St. Mary's School, I'm sure that you still can send something to Fran.
