News and Notes  

Cliff spent the Easter weekend at a men's retreat near Abilene.

  David spent the week before Easter visiting his daughter, who teaches at Stanford.

  Corrine is worried about her brother-in-law, who lives in Canton, Ohio, who has had a heart attack. Meanwhile, since she is a member of the Opera Board, she is looking forward to the Board's production of  Puccini's Tosca on April 20.

  Jim is also involved in the production of  Tosca. He has volunteered to be a super in the opera. He will attend several rehearsals and will see to some extent how an opera is put together. He will represent a cardinal in Act 1 and a judge in Act 2. He will probably actually be on stage only about 10 minutes.

  Jim is concluding his opera class that he has taught this spring at MC. The last class will meet April 5. Corrine has been in the class. He is already thinking about how to teach the class again next fall. The operas will all be different.

  Even better, Megan was home and at church on Sun. Jan. 7. It was so great to see and hug her! Megan's school is just a short distance from the village near Sleepy Hollow where my son Eric now lives and works, so they should be able to talk and possibly meet.
