PEARY CHAT ROOM: Read how to access and use an online chat room dedicated to Peary alumni use -- reunion committees may consider using this feature for occasional planning meetings (DO take minutes and distribute to those who don't make the meetings, and have an agenda). The chat room will be linked from the MSO site shortly. Thanks to Steven Mohr (1967) for making this available to Peary alumni!
PEARY LISTSERVE: Sign-up for the MSO's majordomo listserver. Thanks to Jim Hardman (1976) for configuring this listserv for our use. Detailed instructions can be found at http://earthops.org/Harvest/brokers/Peary_High/maillist.html
FUND RAISER: Some photos and the attendee list from the event last March have been posted.

If you don't see a name that should be there, please let me know: email@example.com
REUNIONS: No reported updates from planning committee chairs for reunions since last month's issue. The latest information available is online for the classes of 1969, 1974, 1979, and 1984.
