Jeannette Sprunger Bechtel
My husband Tom Bechtel and I moved to the Greencroft Retirement Community in Goshen 5 and a half years ago. We continue to be involved with activities at our church, 8th Street Mennonite Church. We don't find it difficult to keep busy.  We volunteer 3 hours a week at The Bistro (a sandwich shop in the Community Center). We have a small garden plot during the summer where we grow some vegetables and enjoy sharing our surplus with others. We like to travel, most recently to the Eastern Caribbean.
Dennis R. Risser 
My wife, Alice and I will be married 50 years in August of this year. After teaching high school and community college business, I was a realtor. Our three children are all graduates of Bluffton. Denise and Deanna graduated in 1993, and Eric in 1997. We enjoy spending time with our two grandchildren, and are active at 8th Street Mennonite. We are "snowbirds" in Sarasota usually the month of February where I enjoy participating in a men's choral group.
