Letter from one of our teachers.....   Dear Bill,   Thank you for your invitation to the class of 1969 reunion. You are a wonderful group who should be proud of your association with Washington-Lee, as I am. My family’s association with W-L extends from the 1920s to 1988 with three generations of W-L graduates and my own 35 year career in the Arlington school system. Your class is one year ahead of my oldest son Mark’s class. Mark’s brother Vern graduated in 1972, and his youngest brother Kirk graduated as a valedictorian in 1981. I graduated in 1950 and my wife in 1951. Strong memories and feelings for this truly unique and magnificent school and the people who have walked its halls continue.

Although I appreciate your invitation and would like to attend the various events included in your reunion, age puts limitations, and it’s best that I decline.

Best wishes to all,  Dana Pond
