    Going in to my archives, I submit the picture of my friend Dr. Bundens and his wife Dorothy, drawing a ticket from the bag of our lucky drawing at the NAWCC Chapter 95 of Cherry Hill NJ. This Chapter no longer exists. The picture is from one of many I took for a full year of our meetings. The entire year was featured the following year in a slide show I had put together, probably in the early 1980s...before both Dr. Bundens and wife Dorothy passed away. Dr. Bundens passing was in 1987. The NAWCC lost a special man who devoted many years to the welfare of the NAWCC...I lost a caring and personal dear friend with his leaving this world.
