Hello from Barbara C. Carter '70
This comes from a classmate who sincerely hopes it finds all is well with each of you.  Perhaps I am alone on this but, when I realized it, I am somewhat surprised that this past spring marked the 40th anniversary of our commencement from UNCG!  Having attended a sad event rather than the 2005 reunion, I have been really looking forward to the reunion this year to reconnect and visit with fellow alums for a couple of days.  After volunteering to help plan our reunion, I was drafted to establish initial contact with the class in regards to the reunion by using the listserv that the UNCG Office of Alumni Relations has prepared for our class.
