DTD at MC #47

Good afternoon everyone,

Well if you haven’t been checking out the Delt Blog, you have missed some exciting times. http://mcdeltalumni.blogspot.com/

We have learned how to post pictures! One of the recent requests is now up and running. These things take some time, but we got there. Thank you Shawn! At this point, if you have pictures that you would like to share with us, send them to me (and I will forward them to Shawn who will post them in the appropriate email). Since these emails go to some of you at work, we won’t be able to post the pictures as an attachment to the email. Eventually Shawn will show me how to do this and I’ll be able to.

Shawn has posted several articles in the blog, with the pictures he has posted. Check them out. He posted a link from WTAP TV in Parkersburg concerning the demolition of Dawes Library in preperation for the construction of the new one. He posted a few pictures he took at the Alumni Weekend,check them out.

He also got in contact with Matt Christman (his email address will be below) who sent him an update on his life. He and his partner Ray are the happy parents of a couple of children that they adopted. Congratulations you two! I won’t tell the whole story here, go check it out and see the pictures. He also got an update about J.P. Clowes. Seems that he and his wife Nina are the parents of a new baby girl, Sarah Elizabeth. Congratulations to you two also. Check out that article and the pictures at the blog also.

Like I said, a lot has happened over there! Also, we have had over 1000 hits at the site now. Pretty good in 10 months.

Now on to the notes that I have received since my last posting. Tim Cox sent me the following, for those of you in the Danville, KY area go check out a play and say “Hi” to Tim.

Hey Rick,

Thanks for the updates.I love reading them.

I wanted to share some news with you for your next update.

I will be performing in four plays this summer at the Pioneer Playhouse, a summer stock company in Danville, Kentucky, from May 28th to August 6th. Danville is about two hours from Louisville and about 45 minutes from Lexington, Kentucky, so if anyone lives in the area, drop me a line at moc.o1518989917ohay@1518989917rotca1518989917xocmi1518989917t1518989917.

Maybe we can catch up.

Have a great summer!

Lance Koved and Ashley Wollam both sent me notes about my upcoming move home. Thanks for the thoughts guys, but I have already bought a house, and am just waiting for closing. It is on Harmar Hill and about 10 minutes from campus (isn’t everything in Marietta just 10 minutes away?). Ashley, I would love to own 507 Putnam, but unfortunatly it is out of my price range.

Rick:

Thanks for the periodic updates. I always enjoy them. I am surprised that you are moving back to Marietta since I believe you have spent most of the time since graduation in Florida and Arizona. I guess you will have to invest in cold weather clothing. Personally I’ve had it with cold weather and we continue to enjoy our house in Florida. I’m still working in Pennsylvania so I get enough of the cold on my visits once or twice a month.

Rick,
Are you interested in buying the old Delt house? If so, I can put you in contact with the owner. He’s looking to sell badly.
Cheers,
Ashley

Randy Williams sent me this note, with Dennis McNoboe’s address. Welcome Dennis! I wish I had known Randy was in Denver, I had that weekend off and could have gone to see him! Ah well, next time.

Rick,

It must be a slow week. Dennis McNoboe’s e-mail is **removed**. It is spelled Alderson Broaddus. He is the Associate Dean of Student Services/Director of Residence & Student Leadership. I just went to their web site in good old West Virginia. I am back in Lancaster. I sure enjoyed my time in Denver. I did little that was scheduled outside of my classes. I came back very relaxed. I enjoyed talking with you last weekend.

Let me know if I can do anything for you back here in Ohio. If by chance you will be in the BIG CITY on July 7th (Saturday), Nancy always has a big cookout, horse shoe championship, beer drinking, fireworks display at her place out past Whipple. You are always welcome.

See you soon,

AWK

I got a note from Hartsy concerning the replacement of the Shelter (all of you know, I’m sure that the house on 4th Street is on its last legs and won’t last forever). He is in contact with the college and hopes to have some news soon. As I find out more, I’ll be sure to let you all know.

Plans are beginning to shape up for our 40th anniversary. If there is anything special that any of you would like to see included in the weekend, please let me know. I’m looking for volunteers to get in personal contact with all of us. My thinking is that one or two people could get together and chase down all of the brothers in a given 1/2 decade. For instance, someone for the 60’s, someone for 1970-1974, someone for 1975-1979, and so on. Please don’t be shy, step forward and volunteer.

Also, don’t forget to send your stories and memories to Shawn Selby moc.n1518989917iarc@1518989917ybles1518989917s1518989917 for inclusion in the booklet he is working on for that weekend. Time is running out, remember, it takes time to put that type of thing together.

Here are the new addresses that I have received, drop your friends a line and say hi, both of you will appreciate it. **the addresses have been removed for privacy reasons** Sean Bailey, Dennis McNoboe, Matt Sutko, Joshua Downey and Matt Christman.

This weeks missing Delts are (I’ve asked for most of the missing, pretty soon I’ll be starting over!): Steven Blumenfeld ’80, Stephen DeLong ’80, Bruce Goldfarb ’83, Richard Ptak ’83, Kelly McKerahan ’85, Rudy Harjanto ’87, and Duane Stokes ’88.

Have a good week.
