the idea for a new volunteer job evolved. While George is actively engaged in his tool business each day, I plan and give slide-illustrated presentations on travel-related topics to any group that wants to listen. My goal is to let others know that there really is a big, wide, wonderful world out there.” Carol can be reached at 717-764-5834 and cfigdore@comcast.net .

Robert Geiger can be reached at 302- 239-6149 . Rosalind Griffin writes, “I am retired from the University of Maryland’s School of Social Work and other agencies. I remain active in the social work profession with my private practice, which is quite active because of the economic challenge for a new group of clients. I have been nominated as a candidate for regional representative to the National Association of Social Workers. I am also a member of the Maryland chapter’s Ethics Committee. My activities include gardening, attending theater and visiting museums. I traveled to Alaska and Canada. My trip to the Panama Canal was deferred because of the untimely death of a cousin, who was my traveling companion. I use my social work skills caring for my 90-year-old aunt. I remain in contact with some of my college and high school classmates.” Rosalind can be reached at 410-664-1699 or rozzg2@ aol.com .

Holmes writes, “Grandchildren are God’s gift to parents! Sadly, I lost my husband of 48 years in April 2010, but our 1-year-old grandson and 2-year-old granddaughter have given me the incentive to keep going. Church activities, two nature preserve associations and being a volunteer for the University Musical Society in Ann Arbor round out my life. I have never forgotten E-town’s motto: Educate for Service. Life is good—Praise the Lord!” Joyce can be reached at 734-453-8457 or joycelholmes@ hotmail.com . Harold Huber writes, “I am retired after 20 years in the Eastern Mennonite University Historical Library, but continue to volunteer there.

My memorable professors include Drs. Reuning, Nelson, Hood, Apgar, Enterline and Hoover.” Harold can be contacted at 540-434-1972 and harolde.huber@comcast.net . Doris Large writes, “I cherish my time spent at E-town earning my two-year medical

secretary certificate and my bachelor’s degree in business education. Thirty years of teaching at Biglerville High School were an enjoyable experience. I’ve already had 18 years of retirement as of 2011. I still keep in contact and see some of my E-town friends. My retirement years have been overly full due to my many interests, including church, travel, the out of doors, exercise and organizations, such as Red Hats, AARP Kitchen Band, Audubon, etc. My health has been wonderful except for slight problems this last year. Hope you all can enjoy your ‘older years’ as much as I am!” Doris can be reached at 717-762-3448 .

Jim and Doris Edris Lineweaver write, “Doris and I will celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary this year along with the Class of ’61 Golden Reunion. Our son, Jeff, and his wife, Theresa, have given us two grand-daughters, Lauren, 14, and Rachel, 12. They live in North Carolina, which is a bit farther than we would prefer. Jim has retired from a 42-year career with Continental Press as vice president of administrative services and Doris from the Hershey Medical Center as an adminis-trative assistant. Recent travels included three one-week trips to New Orleans to assist with Hurricane Katrina reclamation. A cruise to Alaska and a trip to the western National Parks were memorable experiences. Freshman Initiation Week (putrid onions!), special campus weekends, ‘courting’ walks on campus, memorable professors and some lifelong friendships all made those 1957–1961 years some of the best in our lives.” The Lineweavers can be reached at 717-533-7343 or dandj61@ver-izon.net .

Henrietta Kohr Ranck writes, “I look forward to celebrating our Golden Anniversary Reunion with each of you! Soon after this special event, John and I will observe our 50th wedding anniversary in June. As some of you know, he was the first fellow I met on campus as he, a senior, helped me move into the third floor of the ‘new dorm,’ Myer Hall. We have been blessed with two daughters and four grandchildren, ages 6 through 14. Our daughter, Laura, and her family live in Huntingdon, Pa., where her husband teaches physics at Juniata College. Sara and her family live in Charlottesville, Va. Her husband teaches economics and

public policy at the University of Virginia. I continue to be rostered as an associate in ministry by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. I retired from Luthercare, a social ministry organization, six years ago after serving 19 years on the administrative staff, the last nine as vice president for agency advancement. Now, my activities center on family and church. The former include attendance at grand-parents’ days at school, concerts, soccer games and swim meets. The latter consist of serving as lector, choir member, occasional teacher, member of stewardship and social ministry committees, co-chair of the 2010 Elizabethtown CROP Walk and Eucharistic minister.

My duties include teaching trainees in this ministry, as well as having care receivers of my own.” Nancy can be reached at

I enjoyed my teaching career tremendously, but I’m also enjoying my retirement. As most of us ask, ‘How did we have the time to work?’ After retirement, my husband and I enjoyed some traveling—cruises and ‘back country’ trips to Belgium, Holland, England, Wales and Alaska. Since my husband died six years ago, I’ve been traveling locally on work/mission trips to the Gulf. Also I am enjoying the beaches in North Carolina, Maryland and Florida. Love watching the Phillies and Eagles and attending the Fulton Theatre, Lancaster Symphony and Ephrata Playhouse. I have two sons, one granddaughter (third grade) and one stepson at Penn State. E-town certainly prepared me for my rewarding profession. However, after freshman initiation, I’m totally surprised that I remained on campus. The four years at E-town was a great experience.” Gloria can be reached at 717-733-4259 or
