A special thank you to Jim Garnsey '49 whose infectious enthusiasm never waivered. Fortunately for Ilion Alumni, Jim loves to read. Back in December 2002, Jim found a small suggestion regarding an idea for a mega-reunion which was buried deep within this web site. Jim thought it was a terrific idea, encouraged others to persue it and gave this reunion his heart and soul. Here's hoping Ilion is fortunate to foster more like Jim Garnsey, an individual who has given selflessly to promote his community through years of dedicated service. God Bless Jim Garnsey!
