Greetings Classmates: It is time for the fall class letter, but I am enjoying summer. Life is still great here at Stoneridge Creek. I finally saw “Hamilton,” which was wonderful (I did my homework first). I wonder if some of you made it to Alumni Weekend. It is hard to imagine that we graduated 55 years ago. 

I have another Road Scholar trip planned with my friend, Cleve, for October. We will travel to Oahu and Kauai. I did not receive any information from classmates to share this time. It has been fun to see a few classmates on Facebook. If you participate in Facebook, consider asking me to be a friend.

JANE “JAN” WREDE ’64 of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, published a second edition of her field guide “Trees, Shrubs and Vines of Texas Hill Country.” The comprehensive plant chart “makes tips about color, scent, flowering period, height, site preference, and wildlife and livestock utilization easily accessible.” The book is available on amazon.com.

I encourage each of you to donate to the Ripon Fund. I know that many of you have given for a long time, but it is also not too late to start. I am really grateful for my experience at Ripon. I just completed the PATRICIA OSTROM KOHNEN ’64 and JAMES B. KOHNEN ’64 Summer Chemistry Student Research Fund.

Remember that if you visit San Francisco, I would like to meet you or have you come to visit me at Stoneridge Creek. I am very near the Livermore Valley Wine area; we have 50 wineries.
