7.3.08 Jack's Place - The Montchanin Train Station - Many of you may recognize this structure as the Montchanin Train Station (Rt 100 & Kirk Rd) - adjacent to the Inn at Monchanin. However, it was also classmate Jack Klingerman’s “home” in the early 70’s. Jack lived on the second floor, the walls were covered in cardboard egg crates and foam, I guess to deaden the sound. The first floor in later years became a gourmet carryout (Puffs). The building still stands as far as I know. Leave it to the "Klingerbear" to find an unusual & unique place to live.

Class of ’67 Bill Read:  “hi, kevin, thanks for the kind words. I've heard from several '67 BHS folks since getting the job. mostly like Rob Harra through snowbird condo trips to FL. Getting into the hurricane work has forced me to miss the occasional reunions. glad you put together the web site and worked to keep in touch with us. I get back to Wilmington a couple of times a year - Mom hits 90 this year and lives at Forwood Manor out on Marsh road. take care regards, bill”

Sonador means "dreamer" in Spanish.  For Classmate Sue Smeltz Gallagher, Sonador wine is the culmination of a passion for wine when two couples decided to pursue their dream of winemaking. In 2001 Sergio a Maria Gonzalez-Arias, Doug and Sue Gallagher formed a company called Two Crazy Couples, and selected Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon grapes to produce the first vintage of Sonador. Their dream was to produce an outstanding wine of classic balance for enjoyment by wine lovers everywhere and to use Sonador to help fulfill dreams of worthwhile charitable causes around the world.
