"When We Were Here Together"

Dear Fenno, Carol and family,
I've been tracking Fenno's progress through your e-mails and now the blog. What a good idea the blog is for all of us.

Lately I've been leafing through Fenno's "When We Were Here Together", his delightful recollections of his years as YGC Director. It's stunning how many lives he enriched with singing, and it's amazing how many people are still singing! There's just nothing like it, and Fenno knows that best.

One of the luckiest things that ever happened to me was meeting Fenno when he came to The Loomis School. He, Nate Pierpont and I, along with some other friends started the Pelicans, a singing group that is still going strong. That was in 1943! All these years later, after singing together in the Elm St. Eight, Whiffs, Glee Clubs, we are still pals and singing buddies with the SLOTS. I just feel so privileged to have known him and Carol and the whole family. What a joy!

Lolly and I send our love and best wishes. Thanks for everything.

- Bruce & Lolly Barton
