Your Mission…

In prep for reunion news, I have just posted a list of everybody we are currently reaching either by our mailing list or the Facebook group. It is password protected but I’ve used the usual password of the father of the academy that we’ve long used. (If you can’t remember that dig out your Bugle Notes!)

I am still working on a list of who we are not reaching but that takes a bit more work and I have discovered some holes in my data so that may take a while.

Meanwhile please look at the lists. They are grouped by Facebook group, main mailing list and the digest version of the list. If you notice people who are not on at least one, please help them get back in touch with us so they can hear about the reunion planning.

On the mailing lists, take a look at the address you are subscribed with. If you would rather use a different address, please let me know.
