ARTICLES AND PHOTOGRAPHS
NEWS CIRCLE (FEBRUARY 1966)
Here is the "Valentine Issue" of News Circle, but with an Indian flavor provided by Marion Tiger's wonderful cover. There is a great article by Pat Jefferys on Indian political cartoonists of the day. Mary Margaret Lawrence returns with "The Traveller in India," giving an amusing glimpse of historical hospitality in India. And, as always, much, much more! - Stevens Parr (Class of 1967)
ASTRONAUT/PHYSICIST VISITS AES
Astronaut and physicist, Christer Fuglesang, visited the school a few days ago. Christer was the first Swedish citizen to visit space; and Elementary, Middle and High School students all had the chance to hear stories about his visits to the universe. They count themselves lucky to have heard firsthand what it's like to pursue one's career and research in space! Please click on image above to see photo enlarged.

AES ALUMNI'S BUSINESS SOARS
Earlier this month, I traveled to Mesa, Arizona, from India to attend the grand opening of good friend and classmate, Chris Coady's, new shipping store called Shipping by ELI at Val Vista. http://www.shippingbyeli.com/
The store was quite busy on inauguration day with many friends and family members congratulating him on his success. We were impressed by the interior decoration as Chris and his team spent a lot of effort renovating the space from scratch to make it look attractive. This store opened less than a year after his first store in nearby Higley. It's quite amazing to see how fast ELI is growing. His corporate motto is "Shipping for Less;" and literally, their shipping charges are very reasonable compared to the competitors.
Was also a great opportunity to visit hot and sunny Arizona at this time of the year! -Hirofumi Suda (Class of 2002)
LAUGH OUT LOUD
Anne Beattie Kerr (AIS Class of 1967) and her husband have hosted picnics in their home in Castleton, Virginia, since 2004 for our alumni and are ready now to announce this year's plans. Please save the date! Saturday, 16 September 2017. As always, it is an "all-school-years-invited" event; and spouses/families are welcome. For more picnic information, directions to her house, and to RSVP, please message Anne. We look forward to seeing you at the picnic.
ECLIPSE ACROSS AMERICA
We never tire seeing photos of the 2017 Great American Eclipse
We are happy to post eclipse photos
2017 SOLAR ECLIPSE
Here are a few of my eclipse photos taken this morning in Madras, Oregon. It was a truly amazing experience to see the eclipse in the path of totality. The sky darkened, the temperature dropped, animals began to act disturbed and then fell silent as the sky darkened almost completely. Stars and planets began to appear in the sky. The horizon displayed fading orange and crimson colors of sunset for the full 360 degrees. It was magical for just over 2 minutes. None of us who witnessed the full eclipse will ever forget the experience!
