We are happy to coordinate arrangements for Taggarts, but you must let us know if you wish to dine there.

We also need to let the Seahorse Tavern know the number attending in the afternoon.

At the end of this newsletter is a form that we would like to you to send back to us so that we can do some planning.

In addition to the above, we have contact details for the following, but have had no response:

If you know how to get in touch with any of these colleagues, please pass the message on to them and let Sandra know of their latest address.

Could you please check with your FTC friends to ensure that they have the 2015 reunion in their diaries? It is just possible that they may not receive this newsletter because of communication gremlins. Let them know about the website if they have not heard.

We have $365 left in kitty from 2010 and 2012 to help offset any expenses. This will be used on mail-outs to those without access to the internet The balance will be used to offset other costs.

Orme informed us that sadly Wendy Sanders (Devenish) died last Easter after a long battle with breast cancer and its secondaries.

Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday 7th November. This may be the last reunion, so please make an effort to get to the afternoon get-together at least!

Sandra, Tony, Gary, Howard and Kevan.
