Get Together at Rollie'sTavern

by Classes of '67 and '68 folks. FP classmates from all years are welcome.
The following email (early April 2014) is from George Perry:
Heads up everybody!
Save the date
Saturday July 19, 2014
We are planning the summer gathering for as many FP folk and friends at Rollie's on Saturday, July 19, 2014.
The Tacoma Blues Festival, noon to after midnight affair is scheduled for the week prior. Outdoor venues are free and the indoor evening events generally require one only one $20 donation to charity. Shucks, HOW GOOD is THAT? I mention this specifically for those coming from a long distance. Mel, Brad and I also want to know if any body from out of state or any long distance from Tacoma plan on coming during this week between the Blues Festival and Rollie's. If so, let us know and we can rustle up a get together on your behalf. Gol Darn it, we want to connect with you folks and we will go to almost any length to do so. You don't need to worry about eating, drinking or anything like that. All you need to do is visit with all the folks you may or may not know. Heck, I drive from Anacortes for this and my wife Andi comes along. Shoot, the first event I attended, I didn't recognize anyone except for Rollie and of course it was Dave Roller that I thought was Rollie!!!
What more could you ask for????
