Hi Kevan,

Yes, I am a member of the Lewis and Clark chapter here in St. Louis. I'm 
surprised that you said many of you out here know Terry. I figured more 
people would know his brother, Larry. But Terry actually did not recognize 
your name, when I mentioned it to him. He said he has heard the name, but 
couldn't place it. hmmm.

But yes, I am glad to be here and I will definitely network among everyone 
and exchange ideas. I will keep everyone updated as class starts, etc.

That's great that you still have ties here in Missouri.
