Your secretary is in his third year of retirement after 41.5 years in combined U.S. Treasury and Federal Reserve service. I may have volunteered for too many good causes here in Fauquier County, Virginia, and will work to simplify my life by 2024! Wife Louisa organized a remarkable Medieval Banquet at the Cosmos Club in DC, with 114 attendees (a large number for CC events) including our own Alex Beehler and his wife, Stephanie Kenyon. Alex, as you know, served as the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Installations, Energy and Environment between 2019 and 2021, a promotion from his prior service as Assistant Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Environment, Safety and Occupational Health) from 2004-2009. Stephanie is still leading Sloans and Kenyon, the top Auctioneers and Appraisers firm in the D.C. metropolitan area.
I will organize a Gilman ’71 Zoom for later in 2023, around Thanksgiving. A good time to give thanks for our Gilman education and these friendships, which continue to last more than 50 years later.
