I appreciate those of you who took the time to send me something for this month’s newsletter. Please keep them coming! I can only use what I receive from you. Those of you with an eye for detail will notice that the first 2017 issue is Issue #1 of Volume #17. Gary ran the Issue and Volume numbers from the very first issue, which was March 2001. Each month I was going crazy ensuring that I had the correct Volume and Issue numbers. Now they will correspond with the year and month of the year. Some editor types will think this is heresy. I think it is practical.

Thanks to each of you who have taken the time to submit photos and articles for the newsletter. Another month keeps rolling around, so - tell us of your favorite memories of your time at Bushy Park - about your friends there, things you did, places you went, friends you have seen recently, etc. Who were your favorite teachers? Were you a dorm resident or one of the daily bus riders? What did you do after leaving Bushy Park? Have you been back to Bushy Park since leaving? Have you been back to where you lived in the UK? Have you recently met up with any of your Bushy Park friends? Any other aspects of your time at Bushy Park or in the UK would be of interest. Tell us about it. Send photos!
Blessing and Best wishes to all, Bill Rumble (57) Editor, BushyTales1 dot

This is email message [excerpt] was sent by Gary on 30Jul16 with the July '16 issue of “Bushy Tales" - "The May 2016 issue of “Bushy Tales” presents a few tributes to Gerald "Gary" Earl Schroeder (14Nov36-26Mar16.) He was truly amazing. His compassion and generosity to others is beyond what many of us can comprehend. As you can clearly see in the attached tribute by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary folks with whom he worked, he was not your average Coast Guard Auxiliary member! Gary was all in with everything he did. Those of you who are moved to write a tribute to Gary, please do so and send it along. The tribute edition of 'Bushy Tales' dedicated to Gary Schroeder is at: May_2016_issue.pdf (.pdf)" -- Your Acting Editor, Bill Rumble.
