Note A:          If there are a few souls that would prefer shopping to the Museum of Natural History, they may depart on their own after the Rock and Roll Museum at 12:30, where they are on the edge of downtown Cleveland, even without Higbees, Halles, Sterling Linden or Mr. Jingaling.  If you take this option, notify Ray K (the elder) in advance and you MUST be at Museum of Natural History on Wade Oval Drive (on Euclid near Museum of Art) by 2:45, to catch the bus back to Canton.


Note B:          To avail ourselves of group discounts we paid the entrance fees in advance (for the three museums).  Accordingly all reunion members over 18 years of age owe $28.00 each, while those under 18 cost $17.00 each.  The majority of this cost is the Rock and Roll HOF.  These payments will be made to Raymond E.




The entire group will be guest of the Canton hosts for entrance to the Football Hall of Fame, the Thanksgiving Dinner and the bus to and from Cleveland.
