* 50 Year Club *

On Oct. 21, the 50 Year Club held its annual meeting and induction of the Class of 1961 into the 50 Year Club. President Shirley Ann Jackson gave a brief talk at the luncheon. The following new officers were elected ( from left): Harry (Bud) Lindner ’57, president; Bill Blanchfield ’60, treasurer; Al Bromberg ’59, vice president; and John Willson ’59, secretary. The following members of the Class of ’61 were recommended for seats on the 50 Year Club board of directors: Dennis Fitzgerald, Harold Wrede, and Joe Cataudella.

Among the many activities carried out by the 50 Year Club are the Student Community Activity Awards, which go to members of RPI’s Red & White Club (made up of students who assist in many alumni functions, as well as volunteering in many other community activities), the 50th Reunion Display Case in the Student Union, and such things as the recent donation to the Joel Dolven Suite at EMPAC. Board members have also participated in the Transfer Student Reception and the Freshman Barbecue.

With the election of our new treasurer, we are asking all who would like to become “active” members to send their one-time dues of $50 to Bill Blanchfield, 2610 Sunset Avenue, Utica, NY 13502-6009. Please make your check out to the RPI 50 Year Club. These dues will help us continue the types of programs mentioned above.

Don’t forget, all of you who graduated 50 years ago or more, you are members of the 50 Year Club and as such are invited back to each and every Reunion. You don’t have to wait for that “magic” every-fifth-year reunion. We hope to see you in 2012 when we will be inducting the Class of 1962.

If you would like to receive a summary of the 50 Year Club board of directors meeting minutes, send your email address to Kathy Kinsey, kinsek@rpi.edu, and she will put you on the list to get the summary of each meeting as soon as it is approved by the board. She can also provide a copy of the club bylaws.
