 Another great chance was missed - every Reunion should have had its group picture. (I grew tired of hammering this into the snapshotters). How interesting these would be to the present generation, then quite unpredicted but now well grown, and some even engaged in the production of new members. Also, as the Club has turned out so much human material, there should always be a group picture of the babes and sucklings and more so's. Another great chance was missed - every Reunion should have had its group picture.
