To All Bryant Service Club Members:
Just a note to thank you all for the wonderful Christmas package I received. It arrived in excellent condition.
As I am waiting until December 25th to open it, I just want to say I know I will like and appreciate what is inside. It certainly is thoughtful of you all to remember former students of Bryant.
A service club such as you people have organized takes many members, time and money to keep running smoothly, but you can bet we all realize that and appreciate to the utmost the thoughtfulness behind it all.
Your Christmas letter also arrived, and many names mentioned in it were familiar to my eyes, as a number of the girls and fellows now in different parts of the world were classmates of mine. A letter such as this brings back to the memory some of the great times we had while going to Bryant.
My graduation year was 1941, so, therefore, I am afraid I do not know many of the students now, but when and if I ever do get a leave Bryant will be one of my visiting places while at home.
Thank you again for all you have done, and a MERRY CHRISTMAS and best wishes for the New Year to each and every student and member of the faculty at Bryant.
Doris Wellman, USNR(W)
