During 2008 I started to get quite lax about keeping this monthly journal up-to-date. This continued into 2009 and was due primarily to my getting involved with planning my 35-year high school class reunion (see http://chs74.cvillehome.net). New photos were uploaded into the Photo Gallery, but I didn't really write much. Check the 2008 annual newsletter to catch up on that year.


The graduation ceremony for Bruce's master's degree cohort finally was held at the Dulles Hyatt hotel in Chantilly. Orbital CEO Dave Thompson attended to personally congratulate all graduates and present diplomas.
