Subject: [class59] July in Rhode Island

I am happy to report that several of our male classmates have responded in the affirmative, with both forms and checks received here in Cupertino. Chris is coming from Geneva and Neil from New Zealand! anybody else in the longest distance traveled competition? and maybe we should also have the shortest distance.

Bibbett, I hear that your sister is chairing the local committee for the WOSA/NA session. The focus of this year's theme is Images of India/Art, with presentations by a ceramist, a lecture on art history, photos of India and maybe even a puppeteer. For those of you who have never made it to one of these annual reunions, and who experienced a tough adaptation when you reached the homeland, there will also be a presentation on third culture kids.

If you have lost the form I mailed you, there is an electronic copy developed by Phil, under http://www.people.virginia.edu/
. For those of you who are thinking of arranging your own hotel accommodations, I understand that hotels are a rare specie in that area and that the July 5 parade draws such a large following that reservations may have to be made a year ahead.
