In March 2006, George Tilghman, Treasurer passed away - in lieu of appointing an interim treasurer for the short time to the reunion, Founder and President James W. Wyckoff, chose to act as temporary treasurer vs appointing someone then possibly have a different person in the position of Treasurer, depending on how elections at the 2006 reunion might have resulted, in moving accounts again - they already needed to moved from Mr. Tilgnman's bank to Mr. Wyckoff's bank.
In June 2006, we were
notified that Mr. Wyckoff was hospitalized for a procedure - while the surgery was a sucess, complications arose which resulted in an extended hospitalization which would be through the reunion (including planning, RSVP periods) to which Mr. Wyckoff was the Reunion Coordinator
as he had been from the beginning of Group reunions. Therefore, it was decided by the Officers of the Association to cancel the reunion since Mr. Wyckoff, was Reunion Coordinator and Treasurer - two positions that are necessary for a reunion.
