Sincerely yours, Judy Ludin

Score!!! It’s been a time for celebration for the Slomka and Reiskind families. Jeremy Reiskind, son of Laurie and Marc Reiskind, graduated from Ohio University with an MBA. Grandparents Mike and Sandy Slomka traveled to Athens, OH with daughter Laurie (unfortunately Marc was on-call and couldn’t get away) for the graduation, which was the weekend before the Slomka’s 55th anniversary. While in Athens, they golfed on the Ohio University golf course and Mike achieved a significant goal in his golfing career. He shot his age for the round, sinking a 50-plus foot putt on the final hole, I’ll let you guess on that final score!

A big salute…
