Hi Rich & all,

When our website was first put together, thanks for Jim Mattson & Class Creator website, I typed in all classmates that are listed, but if they haven't actually joined the website, they are shown as missing.  Marcia & Margo were never on our original "lost classmates list" prior to our website.  Jim & I encourage all who haven't joined yet to do so.  Jan W.

Many of you are aware of the recent passing of Mr. Robert B. White, our former Band teacher, and before that the Choir teacher.  Mr. White followed in his father's footsteps in giving the gift of music to Bay City, and its youth for several combined decades.

While Mr. White may be gone from our midst, there is an opportunity for us to continue his legacy through a memorial.  In talking to Fred Herter, who has talked to Elaine White, contributions can be made to help send Bay City music students to Camp Timbers, for a week-long Band Camp.  Funds donated to this memorial will only be used for Bay City students, and Mrs. Elaine White was the first person to make a donation. She is moved by this little campaign.

Whether you were a music student, or not, I am making an appeal to all members of our class to consider a tax deductible gift in Mr. White's name, to serve as a partial scholarship to this summer's Band Camp.

Total expenses for one student, for one week is $420.  A donation of $100 will provide enough toward this expense, in combination with the student's requirement to work so as to earn part of the expense, and bring the amount close enough that Herter Music Center will provide scholarship funds to complete the total amount for each individual student. The program is offered through the Saginaw YMCA, a non-profit organization. It is promoted, and band teachers are recruited by Fred Herter. The program is in its 31st year of existence.

To donate:  Please send a check to:

The Saginaw YMCA, 1915 Fordney, Saginaw, MI  48601, noting the Robert B. White Memorial Fund.
