Doug Sedgwick ('58) passed away on May 30th. There will be a Memorial Service on June 16th at 7PM at the VA Memorial at the Lake Nona VA Hospital. For information on the Memorial Service CLICK HERE.
Doug was an avid supporter of all things West Point. I wanted to share with you a little about the Doug I got to know over the past couple of years.
A number of us attended the Parents Club Howitzer Luncheon on May 14th. The luncheon was well attended and we all had a great time. Derrol Dennis ('54) was there with his family as well as Jim Dedmon ('79) and his wife.
The luncheon helps raise money for the Parents Club and there were a lot of great items to bid on. What made everything fun was the person leading the auction. I have uploaded some pictures from the auction and would be glad to upload more if anyone has some they would like to share. (Photo Gallery). I have a great picture of the person that led the auction and just from the picture alone you can imagine how much fun we had.
Founders Day was a great success with 154 people attending, doubling the turnout from the year before. We hadn't anticipated the level of support we received since the event was held on a Friday night. We were very excited with the turnout and support from all those who attended. If you haven't seen the pictures from Founders Day, please visit our Photo Gallery (Click Here).
We could not have made the evening the success it was without our sponsors support and I would like to thank them.
