On December 7, 2013 a group of '58'ers and their spouses gathered at East Bay Crab & Grill

for a real enjoyable evening that included great dinners, good conversation, jokes and the

traditional singing of our Alma Mater and our ACHS Fight Song.  It was a great way to

start the Holiday Season!

September 6, 2013.  We were treated to a great gourmet

lunch at the restaurant at Herzog Winery by my brother,

Steve Bailey, and his wife, who live permanently in Israel.

They happened to be visiting in the U.S. at the perfect time

to celebrate this occasion.  In one week we will be

celebrating our 53rd wedding anniversary at a boutique

hotel in Cambria, CA !!!!!"


Content at a Concert


Mike Miller: "Here’s a pic of Linda and me at a concert at Lehigh University

on November 2, 2013.  Hey, the tux still fits!  You probably know Matthew

Morrison was one of the stars in “Glee”. He was supported with a 65 piece

orchestra. We were joined by a daughter, son-in-law and two granddaughters

who live in the Allentown area near us. The concert was great. It included a

lot of songs from the 50’s and 60’s – probably because it was an older audience."



Adventures in Africa

Joan (Leeds) Mojecki tells us, "Our trip started in Cape Town, South Africa,

went thru Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, and ended up in Dar es Salaam,

Tanzania. We flew to Amsterdam on Sept 24, 2013 and picked up the flight

for South Africa there. We flew back from Tanzania on Oct. 12. Temperatures

ranged from 36 in South Africa to 98 in Zimbabwe."


Joan: "Jack and I are in Zimbabwe in this picture taken in early October.

These are male lions about 20 months old and ready to be released into the wild."



Joan: "We took a train trip from Cape Town to Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.

The train was named Rovos Rail --- the Pride of Africa.  Here we are in their

beautiful dining car.  The train had 42 cars!"


Adventures in Argentina


Cathie (Tort) & Ed Kane at Iguasu falls in Argentina.  Cathie said, "We were

in Argentina for 2 weeks from late September thru early October. It was a very

interesting trip.   Fabulous country!    We were mostly in Buenos Aires and

Patagonia. We saw water falls, snow capped Andies mountains and Glaciers."



Ed & Cathie went to church --- listened to wonderful singing --- and had a great

Italian dinner at one of their very nice restaurants after a cold, wet day at the



Think Pink


Abbie (Marder) Banks said, "My friend had a big breast cancer

fund raiser at her dance studio in Englewood, Florida. It was

called 'Think Pink'. As you can see I got in the pink groove. It

was a fun day with people donating their services and wares.

They raised a lot of money --- dollars for mammograms."



Two Months in Israel

Frank DiBianca wrote: " Hi, Ed,  Just wanted to let you and our classmates

know that Kay and I have almost completed a two-month trip to Israel.  We

have been volunteering for Bridges for Peace, an organization that distributes

tons of food every day to poor people in Israel.  I load food on pallets for

shipment and sometimes help deliver the food to the neighborhood

distributors.  Kay works in the office helping with computational problems

(computers).  For more info and pix, please see our blog at
We hope all are in good health and spirits!" (sent Oct. 20, 2013)



Frank & Kay.  Frank writes: "To visit the Holy Land is a gift.  To pray at the

Western Wall, to breathe the cool evening air, to look across the Kidron Valley

to the hills surrounding Jerusalem, to visit the very places that Yeshua walked

-- all of these things have touched our spirits and energized us."



"The drive through the Judean wilderness was stunning.  We passed Qumran,

where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered.   Along the way, we stopped for a

camel ride, an experience neither of us thought we would ever have.  

Sushee the camel seemed totally unimpressed with our riding abilities."


Take Me Out to the Ballgame!


Rip Miller (Ellie's husband): "The Siltons and Millers at the San Francisco Giants

final game on Sept. 29, 2013.   Four good friends at an incredible celebration and

then dinner at the venerable Fog City Diner. Thank you, Ed, again for your

website that brought Ellie and Lynn together. Four close friends now for years."

Perfect in Portugal

Rodger Mingo: "Sandy and I on the Guadiana River (the river that separates

Portugal from Spain).  Sandy is actually steering the boat.

It was a wonderful time, in a wonderful country filled with helpful, friendly

people.  We took day trips to multiple cities, and stayed in different locations

in the north and south of the country. We also toured the west of Portugal,

the side that borders Spain.  We arrived in Lisbon, Portugal on June 19th

and departed on July 2nd, 2013."
