So sorry to miss this one. I’m there in spirit and, will definitely be there next time.
Just scrolled through the alphabetical list and noted a number of folks I’m looking forward to seeing. I noticed I was listed as Julie Moore, which might be a little confusing since I didn’t acquire the Moore part until after I left GBH. So since we will apparently be wearing name tags, it might help in the recognition process to have Piens on there somewhere. There will probably be plenty of squinting and scratching of heads going on tomorrow anyway. Looking forward to it. Thanks, JPM
Wish I could be there to catch-up with so many “old” friends. I have such fond memories of my days at WGBH. A wonderful time in my career and my life. Here’s to being able to attend next time around. Best to all, Bonnie
I am crushed that I cannot be at reunion tomorrow. I have a board meeting that I cannot miss at the very same time. My love to Fred, Olivia, Michael, David, Chas, Jay. from Deedee Morss Decker
