As the festive season winds down it brings to
light yet another special milestone that we must plan for. As many of you are
aware, after 36 + years of loyal service our dear friend and colleague Tom has
made plans to retire his "Frequency Selection & EMC Shingle" on January 31st,
2011 and passionately pursue interests and matters closer to his heart.
With this grand occasion quickly approaching, I
ask that you consider contributing towards the purchase of an appropriate
retirement artifact(s) and give consideration to any special farewell messages
in the form of cards/e-mails/special gifts that you wish to pass along to Tom.
I ask that you graciously send such contributions
and/or considerations by Friday, January 21st to Jeff or myself.
Tom has asked for nothing formal and wishes to
simply attend the "usual/casual" lunching outing. I suspect that this will
occur the week of Jan 24th.
Happy New Year to all!
