2012 Pics - 1st half

This page will feature recent pics received in the first half of 2012 --- but not necessarily taken during that period.   The most recently submitted pics will usually be placed at the top of this page.  2011 was a good year for our class and let's hope that 2012 follows suit.  Please keep sending in both your old pics (which will go on a different page) and your recent pics.   Let's keep having dinner parties and get-togethers and let's all try to stay in touch.
