    Clarification Regarding Banquet Date

    Please note that the OSC 50th anniversary banquet will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 22, from 6 to 10 p.m. at Old Tucson – not, as reported in previous newsletters, on Oct. 23.

    Thanks very much to Len Mott, M.S. 1971, for pointing out the discrepancy.
