| ’73 | Carmine Grasso sends this news: “In January of this year I had the pleasure and honor to participate in a CDC initiative in the country of Sierra Leone in West Africa. I was part of a team that was performing a review and assessment of the country’s response to the HIV epidemic and to develop a plan for the Ministry of Health to guide their future endeavors. We spent several weeks there both in the capital of Freetown and in smaller towns and villages. Sierra Leone is one of the world’s poorest countries and suffered from 10 years of civil war that has only recently ended. UN Peacekeeping forces are still prominent in many parts of the country.”

On their way to visit with Les Wexler ’73 and other friends in the Outer Banks, Rob Richard and his wife, Helen, stopped in Maidens, Va., to eat at the Hickory Notch Grill. The restaurant is owned and operated by Rob’s old friend Lars Bors-Koefoed. “Lars and I were classmates and fellow biology majors,” Rob writes. “The last time we saw each other was at my wedding in 1978! It was great to see him again. I would highly recommend that any Muhlenberg alum who happens to be traveling down I-84, west of Richmond, stop at the Hickory Notch, to sample some excellent Virginia-style barbecue and visit a fellow alum!”
