We're actively seeking copies
of all our Ginkgo Yearbooks. Glenn Aston-Reese, '65, has
located the first volume, from 1922. Jack Gorman, '47, has
kindly lent us a vintage 1923 Ginkgo, so that we can scan and save it. Our goal is to scan and save all the Ginkgos and have
them available on CD. To that end, we have purchased the software that will help
us in this project. Now all we have to do is locate another 29, or so, Ginkgo's.
Visit our Ginkgo's page, view the ones we've located and let us know if you
have a "spare" Ginkgo lying about that would help complete the Collection. Just click on either of the Vintage
We're into year Four of our Five-Year project to locate all Cougar Alumni and Faculty. We invite you
to visit our Roster page. Please look for your name. If you see it, that means we
have either your email address, your snail mail address, or both. We should be able to contact you. If you're not on the Roster page, try looking on the MIA's page. If you're not on either, check your pulse. ** Then let
us know what you discovered. **
There are hot links at the top of the Roster and MIA's pages that will send us an email, if you click on them. Then,
just tell us what we can do to update these lists. Once we get your info, we can update the website in a matter of minutes.
You are our ultimate key to accuracy. Please keep us on our toes so that we may continue to connect Cougars of
We didn't start this to make money, and we've "succeeded" beyond our wildest dreams. We're here to help connect Cougars
of all generations. But we can't help, if you don't contact us. So, don't be afraid to email us with your
concerns or questions, at CraftonReunion@yahoo.com .
We continue to look to our More Senior Alumni as Mentors, so that we can better serve you. The Class
of 1952 is an excellent example of an Active Class. They (Jack Howard) historically have a picnic, each September, and (John
Small) publishes a Class Newsletter. They really do a wonderful job of keeping in touch with each other. But even they have
a few MIA's. We were fortunate to locate two Classmates they lost track of, one for almost 50 years. They keep us advised
of their Roster Changes.
Thus, everyone benefits.
That's the strength of working together.
Perhaps that's what Community Spirit is
