This E-Mail announces two important items for all Classmates and is a repeat of our last e-mail on 1 December. If you
previously responded to Leanne, there is no need to do so again.
First: We again will hold our traditional Class Christmas/New Year/Holiday Luncheon at The Des Plaines Hilton Garden Inn on
River Road. We will meet in a private dining area at 1130 on Friday, 30 December. We also have invited the current TAFT
Principal, Mark Grishaber, to join us if he recovers from his current medical set-back. We will order individually off the menu.
Please plan to join us to catch up with each other, discuss Class events, and share memories of high school, follow-on
careers, and family. We always have a great time! Spouses, and members and spouses from other TAFT Classes, are invited
to attend as well! To ensure we reserve enough seating, please contact Classmate, Leanne Mattick-Spiegel if you are able to
attend. We hope you will! Leanne can be contacted at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 847-358-7606. Thanks!
Second: Voting is now open for Alumni and Teachers to be considered in 2017 for induction into The TAFT Foundation Hall of
Fame. Nominations are to be submitted on the website www.votetaft.org. All graduate Alumni, retired Teacher Alumni,
current TAFT administration personnel, and current teachers are invited to register on the website (which is very simple and
easy!) and vote to nominate up to 5 TAFT graduate Alumni, 3 retired TAFT Teacher Alumni, and 1 TAFT Team. Certainly, we
can, and should, vote for whom we think deserves this distinctive and significant honor to be nominated and possibly
selected, no matter what Class they may represent. Your Reunion Committee recommends you considered the following
Classmates for nomination. All are well known to the Committee, did very well at TAFT in academics and in a variety of
extra-curricular activities, clubs, organizations, and sports. They also were very successful in important and challenging
lifetime careers. Again, all are deemed worthy of Hall of Fame consideration/nomination and ultimate induction:
• Penni Eichin-Isaacson
• Kent Meyer
• Susan Willers-Bruce
• Paul Walker
• Les Zurawic
• James “Fish” Fisher
• Kelsey Peterson
• Ted Rolander
• Ken Monahan
Please VOTE for 5 Alumni, either some or all of the above, or personnel of your choice in either our Class or other Classes.
Finally, The TAFT Alumni Chorus, including Classmates Penni Eichin-Isaacson, Anne Fear McMamus, Leanne Mattick-
Spiegel, and Allen Blume will be participating in the always enjoyable Annual TAFT Christmas Holiday Concert at TAFT on
Saturday afternoon, 17 December. Please contact Penni (email@example.com or 847-945-5168, or Leanne (see above) if you
are interested in joining the Chorus or attending the Concert.
Again, hope to see you at our Luncheon on 30 December!
Your Reunion Committee
Special Then, Special Now Together Again!... And Staying Together GO TAFT GO!
