York Tour I

Our 50th Reunion

THE FIRST DAY---transportation from the Hyatt, then lunch, followed by a tour of York on Friday, October 4, 2002---all at a cost of only $5 per person...and a big 'thank you' to Betty Western Steben for making all the arrangements.
NOTE: I'm not at my best when it comes to putting 1952 names to 2002 faces...so please forgive me if I have made some mistakes in what is presented here and throughout "Our 50th Reunion".  Please help me make the necessary corrections and clear up any lingering question marks (???) by sending an e-mail to Bruce Downey at crow@vt.eduAnd remember...we want to add your photos to this website !     

Table for two, please...non-smoking.
This is but half of our class...the other half was hidden from view in another dining room.

And now for a little technology on top of technology. What happens when you play back Carroll Knight's VHS tape of the proceedings, then pause the action and pick up your digital camera and take a photo of the TV screen you're watching ?  The next four pictures (below) are examples of what you get ! ! !
