Charlotte invites RHS Classmates to Dinner, March 13, 2019
Karen, John, Betsy, Charlotte, Bob, and Jerry gathered at Janet Osborn's Ann Arbor home (thanks, Janet!). They enjoyed a great feast of salmon, asparagus and other treats while sharing stories of yesteryear. If you weren't there, yes, you can be sure we talked about you. Thanks to Charlotte for making this gathering happen and thanks to Jerry's wife, Alice, for her photographic expertise.
THE 50th REUNION IS A WRAP!

Extremely lengthy reunion recap
Whether or not you came to the reunion, if you didn't send me a story (and photos) to share with your classmates, please do so. We really care.
Sally Foster and Charlotte Osborn are working hard to find classmates in hiding and to persuade them to join us. The photo grid below shows which classmates have committed to attend, which classmates we've located but have yet to commit, which classmates we know cannot attend, and which classmates we cannot locate. Please help us if you know anyone without a red or green dot on their photo.
Of course, significant others and Roosevelt alumni from other classes are welcome to attend this seminal gathering. We ask that all attendees let us know in advance of your plans to join us. There will be plenty of room at the Friday Meet & Greet, but space is limited to 50 people at the Saturday evening dinner. More details will appear here as our plans become more concrete.
Dr. Suleiman Ashur, Director of EMU's School of Visual & Built Environments, whose office is in what is now called "Roosevelt Hall," has graciously offered to let us revisit our old haunts on Friday afternoon at 4 pm. We will be able to see what has become of our old school. John Johnson will be patting down all visitors, to prevent the importation of contraband cans of spray paint. That building will never forget us; additional reminders would not be appropriate. Ok, ok, certainly no one would even consider bringing spray paint; the pat-down will be optional. Thank you, Dr. Ashur, we promise we'll be good.
Here is the list of the things you can do on this website:
Crude, yes, but simple. And no ads!
Make Teddy proud. Come to your Roosevelt Class Reunion!
Please tell me about any unfound classmates you know.
The white-dot mailings went to unconfirmed addresses.
