It is coming up on the anniversary of John Taddei's passing and the funeral home sent me a link that when clicked, sends a remembrance.
Here is the link for those that might want to respond:

Sadly, CBS Retiree Harold Schutzman (W2RII) passed away on April 4th as the result of failing health. Harold's son Stu advised, via e-mail, that he sent to the Broadcasters 20 meter net, of which Harold was a longtime member and former net controller. It was always a pleasure to speak with Harold who always told us wonderful stories about his 40 years+ at the CBS Television Network as a Tech and Technical Manager. We will miss him and his wonderful sense of humor. May he rest in peace.

The next mini-lunch date is Thursday, April 17th. at 1:00 P.M. which will be held at the Valbrook Diner in Valley Stream. The Valbrook is located at 160 East Merrick Road. You can take Merrick Road or Sunrise Highway to get there. Their phone number is 516-872-0465. If you are heading East on Merrick Rd, it will be on your right-hand side. If you pass Addison Place, the Two Guys auto shop, or the railroad trestle, you've gone too far! Heading West on Merrick Rd., when you see the railroad trestle, it will be coming up quickly on your left. There is metered parking in front and free parking in the lot behind the diner. If you are using Sunrise Highway heading East, make a left turn on Horton Ave and then another left on Merrick Rd. Heading West, turn right on Horton Ave., then left at the next traffic light, onto Merrick Rd. and continue, just past the trestle. All retirees and future retirees (and their spouses) are welcome to join us!
