To the editor:
This is in response to a recent "Open Line" caller's complaint published in the Thursday, June 28 edition of The Sentinel.
The Chief Logan Class of 1962 Reunion Committee (Grandfather and Grandmother "Teeny Boppers") has been meeting regularly for the last six months racking their brains to make this 50th year reunion as special as it can be. All committee members would have appreciated ideas and input from as many class members who would wish to do so. Said caller could have attended one of these meetings or could have even called a fellow classmate expressing his or her views; it's obvious you're only a phone call away. Furthermore, "planning something simple" would be simple if all classmates lived within 60 miles.
Yes, there is a dinner dance that costs $30 a person; however, we have made the "rock" from rock and roll easy by providing rocking chairs for all, and, at no extra charge. We realized, as you so aptly noted in your comments, that we will be 70 years old in a couple of years. In addition to the rocking chairs, we have a cardiac resuscitation team on standby for the evening along with a helicopter and two ambulances.
"Walking the halls of Chief Logan again" is 50 cents of the $60 payment, and we will gladly refund that 50 cents to any class member who built no memories he or she wishes to revisit.
Hey, the picnic is free, and I'm sure you will find something to do there-Bingo, a checkers tournament, a rocking marathon, a knitting race, a balloon bounce and an all-you-can-eat crow contest!
I, John Monsell, am very, very proud to say that I am a Chief Logan Mingo, and I am a member of the Class of '62. In spite of all, please come anyway. We'd be glad to see you, believe it or not.
John A. Monsell
