Hi, I'm checking in. Just received a note in the mail (I don't know how you caught up with me out here in Calif.?) But, I'm glad you did. Went to the website and it is great. Here's my bio: Graduated State University of New York at Farmingdale in Dental Hygiene. Married in 1971 and moved to Ann Arbor, then Sacramento, then State College, Pa and now San Jose, CA. Our sons are now in college and we love our empty nest. My husband, Patrick, works for Cisco Systems now, but was a professor at San Jose State for the past 10 years. We love California. Even my parents left Wilmington! I'd love to know if anyone lives out here? Please don't put my class photo in!

elderly parents frail and remain in Wilmington, Delaware, married 64 years, have moved alot with husband's
work: ohio, washington, idaho, georgia, wisconsin, liked the NW best but have bloomed where planted and
grown very flexible with nuances of American life in different locations. Currently I am an RN Administrator,
opening a new site for program that provides all inclusive health care for the elderly. Mission is to keep
impoverished frail elderly out in the community or in least restrictive living environment for as long as
possible. We serve as an HMO and provide holistic services in a day center (nursing, rehab, primary care,
social work, and consultants come to the center: podiatry, mammography, dental, optometry, psych, etc.)
When I was a case manager I specialized in the alcoholic male who nobody else liked to deal with-my
favorite! Little old ladies who whine-my least favorite. Work is the focus. Kids raised well was first focus,
now work. More than anyone wanted to know, I am sure.
Thank you, Kevin, for starting this coordination. HS was not a time of social confidence for me and I cannot
fully embrace the concept of coming together.

I live in Charlotte, NC with my wonderful bride of 30 years.
Our kids have grown and flown the nest and I miss them daily.
I would have been happy in the Amish community where the parents add on to the family home and the children raise their families in the main house.
That would suit me fine.
We live on a golf course where I work hard to keep my handicap in single digits, which is not too tough since we can play year round.
I am also a singer/songwriter and play guitar and sing whenever asked.
Fly fishing in the mountains of North Carolina is also a passion.
In my day job I make a living in digital pathology, hunting and killing cancers of various origin and degree.

Thanks for all the hard work you do for the class. It's super of you to keep us all updated. I realize that my info is old, so here is an update.
After moving around several times in the first 15 years of our marriage, Bob and I have been settled here in Andover for the past 25 years. And yes, I am still with the old, original husband of 41 years ( I was obviously a child bride as we are all only 49!). Bob is still working with our son Matt at Image Fortress (digital data archiving) a company they founded together, and Matt has now gifted me with three of the most wonderful grandchildren in the world! Ellie is 11 and started Middle School this year, Nate is 7 and is in 2nd grade, and Janie is 3 1/2, and our Little Miss Sunshine. My daughter Becca works in Customer Service for American Express and lives about 20 minutes away with her husband and the other two most wonderful grandchildren in the world! Danielle is 3 1/2 and is an absolute whirlwind of energy, and Gabriella at 2 is not far behind her! Needless to say Bob and I enjoy the privilege of having our family so close by and having our "grands" so happy to spend time with Gaga and Poppy.
I am still working as a travel consultant, and am happy to say that Americans are starting to travel again and are beginning to realize the value of working with a travel professional. In the words of the American Society of Travel Agents, " Without an agent, you're on your own". My 15 years in the business have given me lots of knowledge and planning experience, and I still enjoy working with people to make their travel dreams come true. Bob and I enjoy traveling and we have had some fantastic experiences over the years, but as we are both still working, our travel time is limited.
In 2008, Charlotte Parker Vincent and I met in DC to celebrate the 50th anniversary of our friendship...she was the first person I met when my family moved to Wilmington! Charlotte is even the reason I met my husband while we were in college (a long story involving old boyfriends and hospitals). Last fall, Bob and I traveled down to DC to join Charlotte and her husband Frank to attend John Stewart's Rally on the Mall. I still hear from Debra Chavenson Grossman in sunny CA every year. It's wonderful to keep up with friends from the past.
I was sorry to miss the last class reunion as I actually was in Wilmington that weekend, but we were celebrating my Mom's 90th birthday, so had other demands on my time. My parents are still at the Methodist Country House, living independently, so I am in Wilmington several times a year to visit with them. It's funny, but every time I come back to Wilmington, I amazed at what a great place it would be to live (especially in comparison to the frozen North), when I couldn't wait to leave when I finished HS. Perhaps there is wisdom with age???

Coen, (Di Marco) Lynda (Lynn)
It is Lynda (Lynne). Bonnie VanNewkirk (Redmond) showed me the invitation. I am ironically living in the same house I lived in back in 1967. My bio is married in 1972, divorced in 1985, have two grown sons, eldest (28) is a bank executive and the younger (23) is awaiting assignment on the Maryland State Police. I have had many jobs and put myself through school and work now with physical therapists. I am very active as a church youth group leader, sing in a quartet and our church choir. Have just returned (7/28) from a missions trip to two orphanages in Romania. I have traveled within the states and to Canada, Mexico, Hawaii, England and Romania. Hoping to check out Italy one day, where my mother lived. I love foreign languages and can get by in a few countries, thanks to their speaking enough English. Now that my child rearing days are over with my own sons, I have found great joy in trying to teach other children and teens about the real world and that selfishness is destroying while giving to others is a great blessing. The youth are our heritage. I have adopted a motto from someone I admire, "Redeem the Time". I have learned the true meaning of a small word, ENOUGH but want to view the world by living among different cultures and learning so very much from them. Love has no boundaries and people are the same where ever you go.
Colfer, Joan, MD
Was a 1967 graduate of Brandywine High School. Just saw the web site for the first time today. I went on to medical school after the University of Delaware. Am now the Health Director for the Collier County Health Department in Naples, Florida and live on Marco Island with my husband and my boat. Would love to hear from old classmates. Have stayed in touch with David Taylor and Susan Cochran over the years, but have lost touch with the others.
"Hi there Class of '67 grads. Except for a
short stint in 1969 at a car dealership in Easton MD, I have lived around the
area all my life. Every once in a while I run into someone from high
school and we talk about the good ol' days then go our own separate ways again.
I went to Pennsylvania Institute of Technology for a short time after high
school then bounced around at various jobs until I went to work for the DuPont
Co. in the early 1970's. I stayed with them until 2001 when I took
an early retirement. I got married for the third (and last) time in 1995
and both my wife, Rose, and I are avid motorcyclists. We both had
motorcycles which we sold at the end of last year to buy one nice touring bike. We
have toured from Florida and Texas up through the New England states and
everywhere in between along the east coast since the beginning of the year.
Before the year is out we hope to tour much of the Midwest. We've averaged about
1,000 miles a week on the bike. She hopes to also retire in the next
couple of years at which time we will be touring most of the US and Canada.
To keep myself busy I am in the process of opening up an antiques store in
Newport where we live, in between bike rides of course. I have a son, Nic,
who is 17 years old and presently a senior at BHS. Rose has 2 children,
Krystina and Dustin, who are both grown and raising families of their own. We
have 5 grandchildren.
In 1985 my father died of cancer and to honor him I took a leave of absence from DuPont and walked from Fisherman's Wharf, California to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware to raise money for cancer research. I'll have to say that was one of my biggest accomplishments in life, the things I saw and the people I met will live with me for the rest of my days. All my friends and family were very supportive and helpful in aiding me to complete that challenge. All money raised was donated to the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Institute in New York which is one of the largest and most aggressive cancer research facilities in the country.
I hope to see everyone at the reunion and if anyone would like to e-mail me, my address is "Eagle1go@aol.com". See you there!"
It's Muffie Crowley Milford. I'm one of those "placed persons" who has lived most of my life within a 10-mile radius. Over the years, I've come to appreciate what a terrific place Brandywine Hundred was to grow up...
Somehow, through sheer dumb luck, I found my groove when I landed a job at The News Journal newspapers in 1975. I'm still a business writer for The News Journal and I also write for the New York Times and The National Law Journal. I sometimes write about Wilmington and Delaware for the NYT and NLJ, in fact.
My husband, Philip, is also a legal and financial writer for the financial news service, Bloomberg News. It's great, because we have the same interests.
We have two sons, Brad and Andrew. My son Brad is an executive at a telecom company. He is married to an attorney and they have a 20-month old son. Andrew is a student at Berklee College of Music in Boston where he is majoring in song writer. One of his songs was recently chosen for a movie soundtrack.
Phil and I have lived in the same house in Alapocas for 23 years.
William S. Crum has lived in Arizona for the last thirty years. I have been married for twenty-nine years with five daughters and they have given me fifteen grandchildren. My wife, Denna, has worked at the VA Medical Center for twenty-nine years. I, myself, has bounced around to many jobs including a stint with the U.S. Postal Service and four years in the United States Navy with a tour in the Republic of Vietnam. I am glad to be alive. In 2006, I will be running for the U. S. Congress as an independent candidate for the U. S. House of Representative, District Two. Donations will be accepted as long as they are twenty dollars or less because I am a fiducial candidate. The address is Friends of William Crum, PO Box 7878, Surprise, AZ 85374-0114. Hope to hear from my fellow Bulldogs. If you want to know more about me, e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org. Love & Peace to all.

Kevin - Thanks for remembering my early days as a musician. My rock career peaked in 1967 although I played with several bands on a part time basis over the years. After leaving Brandywine, I attended and graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a degree in Engineering Science. During that time I married Sandie Slayton (BHS '67). We were married for seven years and have remained close friends. We have two great sons. Our oldest one, Sean, is a Senior Designer with Turner Sports Television in Atlanta. Our youngest one, Ryan, is a Software Design Engineer with a dot.com company in the Silicon Valley. I worked in the railway and rapid transit industry for many years. During that time I met my wonderful wife of 23 years, Cindy, who has been, and continues to be, my best friend. Together we developed and taught life changing workshops designed to support the fulfillment of individual potential, and it was there that we developed our own sense of purpose in life. For the past 15 years I have been working with a large real estate investment company where I am Executive Vice President and National Sales Director. Cindy and I live in Atlanta and travel extensively. I really treasure the experiences we shared at Brandywine and thank all of you for being a special part of my life. Martel

My family moved away from Wilmington the year I graduated, and as a result I only rarely had occasion to get back - lost touch with everyone. I graduated college in Indianapolis, took up inner city social work for a time, and then joined the Army for what was supposed to be a couple year stint, but in the end was just over a decade because it was always so much fun, very big and expensive toys provided free. My last assignment with the Army was in Munich, Germany where the good times were definitely easy to come by. But then I decided ten years was long enough, so I joined the Foreign Service with my first assignment in Saudi Arabia during the Gulf War. I found my war bride there, Nancy, who had a passport with so many inserts that it looked like a well-read novela, and with no empty space for another entry stamp. Definitely someone meant for the vagabond life. And we’ve been moving along ever since; Kiev, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, St Petersburg and now Tbilisi. We had a son, Duke (D Ellington Ellrich), and we adopted a daughter Natia Nestan-Darejan Ellrich, the same age as Duke, now 6. They are the best buddies, just the way we planned it. I also have a 32 year old son by a former marriage who is a rock musician in Indianapolis. The adventure continues. Wish we could be in town for the reunion, but duty calls and rarely does it call to the States. Best wishes to all, and keep up the great site. Doug.

After graduating from BHS and University of
Delaware, Dave and I were married in 1971. We moved to Western
Massachusetts where I taught HS Home Economics in Holyoke and Dave received his
MFA in Acting and Directing from Smith College.
Our life together(which started with the Senior Play) has been blessed with amazing experiences all related to Dave's career in the theatre. We loved living in Wilmington for 14 years while he was the Executive Director of the Grand Opera House. In 1993, we moved to NJ where Dave was the President of the State Theatre and the New Brunswick Cultural Center. In NJ, I returned to HS teaching after a 19 year hiatus! Home Ec had become Family and Consumer Science and my classes were 60% boys! In the summer of 2000, we moved to Austin, TX (on a 112 degree day) where Dave is now the President of Arts Center Stage and is planning the building of the Long Center for the Performing Arts. In Texas, I am the Vice President of Newcomers and am busy creating a lecture series for the 2002-2003 season.
We have two wonderful children. Matthew, 25, graduated from Rutgers College in 1999 and after working for 2 years in NYC as a legal assistant has recently moved to San Francisco where he works for Inheritance Funding Company. Laura, 22, graduated from Kutztown University in 2001 with a degree in Speech Communication. She currently lives in Austin and works for Kforce, a professional staffing company.
Texas is really different from the East coast but we are adjusting and are making some wonderful new friends. We are both looking forward to the reunion and catching up with old friends. I am also looking forward to seeing "autumn" since we don't have that season here...everything is always green!

The sun shine warm upon your face...
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

I received my B.A. in Theater from the U of D and married the former Kathleen Lyons (BHS '67) in 1971. I received an MFA in Acting and Directing from Smith College in 1973. We moved to DC in 1975 where I worked with Greer Firestone (BHS '65) managing a Earth Shoe store in Georgetown. When the Wilmington Grand Opera House renovation began, I went to work there in fundraising and eventually became the Executive Director, a position I held for a dozen years. We moved to New Brunswick, NJ in late 1992 where I was the President & CEO of the New Brunswick Cultural Center until 2000. We moved in 2000 to Austin Texas where I was the President and CEO of Arts Center Stage, designing and building a new three-theater $125 MM performing arts complex in the Texas capital. In 2003 we relocated to Green Bay, Wisconsin where I ran a major Broadway touring theater, served as a Tony voter, and developed new Broadway productions. In the summer of 2006 we had the opportunity to return to the East Coast to oversee the restoration and start-up operations of a beautiful historic theater in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. After establishing that theater and building a sustainable base for its operations, I decided to retire in September, 2010. After a retirement of three long months, I was asked by Wilmington's Grand Opera House to return to Delaware to assist with a strengthening of its annual operations base and the completion of a $10 MM capital campaign. Kathy and I are in the process of relocating from Massachusetts to Delaware during 2011. We are blessed with two great kids, Matthew (33) a Rutgers grad who is living in New Jersey with his wife Dina and son Travis, and Laura (31) a Kutztown University grad who is living in Sommerville, MA outside of Boston with her fiance. A Delaware wedding is planned for June, 2011.

They reside in Annapolis, MD, where Michael is working as a biologist for the Dept.of Natural Resources and Sarah is, for now, a stay at home mom. Our daughter, Jenna, is married to J.R.

I ran across the Class of '67 web site (very nice job, by the way!) and decided to "sign in," so to speak. My e-mail address is as above, and for an overview of what are the passions of my life please feel free to access my wife's and my web site links below.
Essentially, I have worked at a regional paint manufacturing company for many years and have held many positions from truck driver to senior (in more ways than one!) sales representative. (It seems I'm the oldest, longest tenured and most politically liberal of the bunch -- Colorado is a rather conservative state!) My wife Cheryl Price is an artist of some renown.
Together we have 4 kids, generally all grown up except for the pain and suffering associated with the financial responsibility of college. Right now only one "responsibility" is left, so that's refreshing.
Cheryl and I love to travel, she painting and I writing narratives and taking photographs (see below website links.) We have traveled all over the lower 48, Central America, the Caribbean and Alaska -- also to Borneo and Malaysia. I've witnessed and photographed 4 total Solar Eclipses and have actually had some of that work published nationally. As you may remember, I am still an avid amateur astronomer, and have finally erected a permanent observatory (albeit on a neighbors land -- our land has too many trees and not enough exposure.) We are experienced scuba divers -- me often
unfortunately demanding to take "ridiculous and massive" photo gear to all depths. Also, I have for many years been a commercial whitewater river guide (now only private), and have been fortunate to float most of the major whitewater in the U.S. Essentially then, one could accurately state that I am firmly attached to the outdoors.
Overall, I feel blessed to have experienced so much, and as Jimmy Buffet points out -- "some of it's been tragic, some of it magic" but personally I wouldn't trade a moment of it. I guess that's the salient crux of my life to this point.
Hope that's what you mean by signing in -- hope you enjoy the websites.
