Dear Class of 1959,

I know this past year has been different for all of us, but I hope you are feeling well as we all reach the mid ’80s. I am pleased and blessed to say I am fine and still staying active. The full length documentary on my life, “David Mirisch – The Man Behind the Golden Stars,” has already been accepted into 18 Film Festivals. One was the Coronado (California) Film Festival where my wife Sandy and I traveled from our home in Montana to be there, and where 60 of our Southern California friends joined us. And, at the age of 86, I became the Executive Producer of a feature film that takes place in 1890 and was shot totally in and around Missoula. 

If you have anything about your activities drop me an email at [email protected] and I will be sure to get it into our next Class Letter to keep us all connected. Perhaps, you just want to let me know what you enjoy watching on TV, or what you are reading about, or simply how you are passing the time with hobbies or travel. Maybe we can simply reminisce about memories from Ripon College? What was your favorite fall or winter activity on campus? I would really enjoy hearing any update or news from you, and I think our fellow classmates would, too. I welcome phone calls, emails, or letters. 

A reminder that if you can make it back to Alumni Weekend at Ripon College, all of us are part of the Golden R Reunion annual celebration now that we have surpassed our 50th Class Reunion. Alumni Weekend 2022 will be June 23-26. If you plan to travel to Ripon for Alumni Weekend, hotel room blocks are now available by calling the Heidel House in Green Lake (920-807-0300) or Cobblestone Suites in Ripon (920-748-5500), and asking for the Ripon College Alumni Weekend rate. 

Stay safe and well.

God Bless.
