Comments:

I was a Detroit teacher for 32 years-(High school business) MBA-Wayne State-retired 1998, I had an opportunity to serve on the same faculty with several Mumford teachers including Mr. Mullins(PE), Mr McHenry (driver education), Mr. Korshinski (Social Studies) and from Bagley school, Mr. Keliher.
Owned Sylvia's Fashions in West Bloomfield from 1975-1993 and have been a Financial Advisor/Planner for the last 17 years. I am pleased that I have helped hundreds of individuals participate in saving plans that have enabled them to retire with dignity and comfort.
I work my own schedule and am not in a hurry to completely retire.

Mumford memories:

I enjoyed casual basketball with James Cohen, Richard Swartz and Bob Cohen. Also, whizzer motorbikes and scooters with Ed Keywell and Shel Levine. I also "owned a 1956 red Olds Starfire convertible with partners Ed Keywell and Bob Cohen. We a had a lot of fun on Northlawn with Harriet Weingarden, MariAnn Shapiro and DeeDee Barr. Also fond memories growing up with the Bagely and Post kids. As a teacher in Detroit, I was fortunate to work with Jules Goldman as Marketing and DECA teachers. We were able to secure employment for our students and provide travel opportunities for students so that they could compete in national competitions related to Marketing. Looking back at it as a former high school teacher, we had some very good teachers, some bad ones and a lot in the middle. But our student body was exceptional. Just look at the profiles. Even more impressive-look what our children and grandchildren are accomplishing. That's the real story.

Not sure how many will be there-but I will definitely be there. Any of us who are fortunate to still be here and in good health have an obligation to attend. We are part of a very important history of Detroit and the Mumford experience. And besides-it will be a fun filled evening.

Hi Kenny and Arnie-I am writing on the behalf of Sheldon Levine-although of course I know both of you, I know that in the old days you were both really close to Sheldon. I believe Roy was too. I do get a smile on my face when I can picture all you guys together as kids. You had a wonderful bond-one I hope you you relish forever. You were a whole half grade ahead of me-so I was a little out of your league in school. But relish those memories and never forget them.
