Al Casey to run his 100th marathon


Received the following from Jamie Deuel


Former 16th Co. classmate, Al Casey, is about to create some sort of history, at least classwise, and likely otherwise, completing his 100th marathon on Sunday, 7 October in Scranton, PA, at their annual "Steamtown Marathon." Jamie Deuel (jkdeuel@swcp.com or 505/344-0411), from Albuquerque, is organizing an informal victory celebration for our "Energizer Bunny" and has a few rooms reserved at the Econo Lodge (the best rated hotel in the area, according to travel web site http://www.tripadvisor.com/, only 6.2 miles (their number) from its location in the suburb of Clarks Summit.to the finish line. A special Class of '54 group rate of $79.95 (plus taxes), includes a continental breakfast and (according to the very helpful Manager Sunny) "all the amenities you'd expect of a top line hotel." He has nine rooms still available at this rate until September 1st (if they don't sell out before). Al will have lots of relatives and other friends there but he would be very pleased to see some of us present. If you go, and would like to hook up for some collegial sharing, coordinate with Jamie to discuss where and what to do. Suggestions on how the Class of 1954 should honor this historic accomplishment are most welcome. To book a room contact the Econo Lodge (formerly Summit Inn) directly at summitinn@comcast.net or by phone at 570/586-1211."
