Registration for the 10th annual Running for Rachel Virtual 5K/10K is now open! April 17-25, 2021 Register at: www.runningforrachel.myevent.com
Some background for those who may not be aware of Rachel's story: Our organization began in an effort to support my daughter, Rachel Lynn Guss, CD Class of 2005, as she battled duodenal cancer. Since her passing in November 2011, our mission has been to raise awareness and funds for gastrointestinal and duodenal cancer research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). We feel very fortunate to continue the tradition of celebrating Rachel while working to raise funds in our fight against duodenal cancer. Thanks to YOU, in the nine years since our inception, we have raised over $450,000 for the National Institutes of Health Cancer Research Center! Your support is vital to our mission of raising awareness and funds for gastrointestinal cancer research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Thank you for your time, it is such a valuable gift. The fact that you share it with us, is such a blessing. In the words of Helen Keller, "Alone we can do little, together we can do much."
With heartfelt gratitude,
Cheryl and Tim; Erin, Ethan, Jack, and Elle; Lisa, Troy, Henry, Owen, and Casey
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Sincerely yours, Cheryl and Tim Guss graduates '72 and '72 Rachel a graduate in 2005

UPDATE 8/10/2020  - Class of 1970 Milestone 50th plus 1 year Reunion will be held on the Weekend of September 24-25, 2021. We are looking forward to making this a very memorable event for classmates, so it's important that we have your current information in order to stay in contact with you about this event, future impromptu get togethers, and to share information/photos.    Please contact Dave Magaro at burgncarlisle@comcast.net.

**********************************

CLASS OF 1960:   After rescheduling our 60-year class reunion until September, a few weeks ago the situation here has changed.  The Tall Cedars has refunded our deposit along with an explanation that, based on the current and unknown future of the pandemic, they will not allow the use of their facility by any organization until next year.  That, along with all of the problems our country is experiencing, has resulted in the committee deciding to cancel the reunion and all associated activities.  For those who have registered and paid already, your money will be returned shortly by our class treasurer, Karen Mummert.
