Our 50th class reunion is a fond memory for the approximately 100 classmates who renewed friendships and formed new ones as we gathered in New Brunswick last April to celebrate our four years as the Bicentennial Class and to join the Old Guard of Rutgers. The Reunion Yearbook about those experiences and our lives since graduating was very well received with about 100 copies distributed. It is still available on our website -

Ted Hardies, class president since 1996, was elected to lead the class again. He is joined by Fred Cassaday, vice president; Ray Kaden, treasurer; and John Bravo, secretary.

The chair of our 50th anniversary reunion committee,
Ken Johnson, is now a member of the Rutgers University Board of Trustees. He serves on the Finance and Facilities Committee.

Harvey Nagler, vice president of radio for CBS News, has retired after 18 years in that role with the network. He’s now doing consulting work. Joe Carfora checked in from Lakewood Ranch, Fla. Joe has been active with Rutgers alumni clubs, first in Chapel Hill, N.C., and now in Florida (Sarasota, Tampa and Naples). John Woloszyn’s Baltimore-based company, Intralytix, has received a grant from two federal agencies to develop an anti-bacterial product to reduce the mortality of hatchery-raised oysters.

We lost four more classmates last year.
Rich Gulick of Chatham died March 15. He was as town planner in both Connecticut and New Jersey. John Cerefice, a long-time lawyer on Long Beach Island, died May 9 in Rockledge, Fla., his retirement home. Curt Roseman of Hampton died Aug. 19 of cancer. He renovated historic homes, created architectural models for developers and built model train layouts. Joel Rosenbaum of Eatontown, a retired hospital respiratory therapist, died Nov. 9. He received numerous medals for his work as a U.S. Air Force weather forecaster in Vietnam and pursued a lifelong interest in railroads and railroad history.
