  Classmates;

  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: alspiegel@yahoo.com 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.   
  Thanks!

  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 (penniisa@att.net 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!
