Does anyone own up to closing the window? Was it Dan Sciaraffia or someone else who wants to claim the honor?

The committee is diligently working to make this the best reunion ever. It is anticipated that it will be the last reunion as we have known them for the past 60 years, so you should plan to join us on April 30 and May 1.
