Memorabilia: We are working to assemble copies of old newspaper articles, game programs, photos and other memorabilia to hand out at the reunion.  We are also planning to distribute a DVD of the 1957 Lower Merion game.  Most of what we collect will be displayed on this website.  If you are into computers and have additional or better quality copies of what is displayed, you can email jpg picture files or word processor text files of these or anything else you would care to share with your teammates.  This can be anything from a summary (autobiography) of your life since graduation (including pictures) to personal stories about "who got away with what without getting caught".  Checkout the personal pages for examples.  <click  1, 23 or 4>   Send emails with attachments to: Dave Wetzel (215)699-3698 email:  wetzel@comcast.net .  If an email attachment exceed 10 MB or you would like to provide the actual hard copy to be digitized please call Dave Wetzel (215)699-3698 to make arrangements.
