For many years the Tuesday luncheons included the the luncheon attendees signing postcards that were then mailed to brothers who were missing from the luncheon. After decades of this luncheon tradition, the postcards ceased to be part of the luncheons.
The restoration of this tradition was a request of Bob Watt ’36, and we’re proud to announce that even though it took a few years following Bob’s death to fulfill his wishes…… the tradition is restored. We now have postcards for luncheons again. Even better, we have a custom-designed, over-sized post card for our luncheon. The postcard needed to be over-sized to accommodate the signatures of the many attendees.
A tip of the hat to Dennis Kirkpatrick ’71 who provided art for the front of the postcard. Through the wonders of modern technology he created the pictured “water color” treatment of a photo of 4503. Our “Thanks” to Dennis for helping out.
Several of these Fiji postcards are are signed at each luncheon and then sent to brothers to remind them that they are welcome to join us as we meet the second Tuesday of each month at the Seattle Yacht Club.
