Thank you for sending the October Alumni newsletter. I enjoy reading of former student activities and their exciting lives.
It was a delight to read of the Pasquerellis and Roskos trip to Alaska. Marie and I are planning a similar trip to Alaska this coming summer. If it is not too strenuous, we would like to take the same side-trips they had taken. We are excited about our plans.
I received a telephone call from Frank Giordano. As you may know, he lives in California. In his call, he credits me with getting him started in a successful career in show business. I do not believe he is correct. I believe his success can be attributed to his great talent. It was nice to hear of his appreciation of his time with me at Austin, however.
I am active. Last week I did a workshop for elementary school teachers. My portion dealt with demonstrating how music may support and reinforce the traditional language reading program. I thought I did well.
I appreciate you keeping me in touch with the Austin High grads. I hope I get as lucky as Rudy Macciocchi in bumping into you. I don’t get downtown as often as Rudy. I thank you for keeping in touch with Marie and me.
