Donation & Reflections from Dick Zoerb

Hello Bill,

Thanks for the quick reply. I’ll make out a check to the corporation and send it directly to you. Wish I could do more, but since I’m planning to live to 100 (84 going on 85 now), I need to stretch our remaining funds out carefully.
My 3 years at Ohio State and Beta Chapter were some of the best of my life, but I can’t complain about all that has followed either: 4 children, 10 grandchildren, and one great granddaughter, so far and have managed to set foot on all 7 continents (no. 34 on my bucket list?).
The only ones from the class of 1951 and perhaps the only ones still alive that I regularly correspond with are the twins, John and Hugh Moore, originally from Canal Winchester. I’ve followed the progress of the house on the website and hope to stop by one of these years to see the finished product. I was the “Crescent” editor during my senior year, but also helped to keep the chapter grade point level up scholastically. Met my future wife, Margaret Lucas of Coalton, Ohio and a 1953 graduate, during the last months of my senior year. She was pres. of Delta Zeta and a couple of other Home Ec. groups. We were married on Oct. 10, 1953 at North Broadway Methodist Church a few weeks after my army discharge and right smack dab in the middle of the Ohio State- Illinois game in Columbus. Good thing there weren’t cell phones in those days, or half the attendees wouldn’t have heard our vows. As it was, my dad was an Illinois grad, so wasn’t too happy about our scheduling the wedding then. Any way, we are primed for our 62nd anniversary this fall.
Not sure if there’s a way to transfer some of the above to a future “Crescent” issue, but if there is, feel free to use any or all, so that somebody besides the Moores will know I’m still alive.

In the bond,

Richard C. (Dick) Zoerb
72 Hawkstead Hollow

Grad. June 1951
