To the editor:

On September 22, it was my great pleasure to appear with my fellow members of the ‘60s rock band the Del-Tones (with David Osborn, John Frentino, Jerry Porreca and Richard Leavitt) for the band’s reunion at the Hudson Elks Lodge 787. We in the band were delighted to see many of our old friends from “back in the day” who filled the room at the Elks Club. We all had a blast!

Great appreciation goes to everyone who attended, and to the Elks Club membership for hosting the reunion, with special thanks to Elks members Stan Rutkey and Don Cranna. Their many kindnesses and courtesies throughout the weekend of rehearsal and perfomance made us feel most welcome.
