Howe, a member of the Philadelphia Alumni Chapter, also had a chance to play golf with Harvin in Hawaii earlier this year.
“For the past couple of years we spent time in Scottsdale. This year we went all out,” said Howe. “We spent most of our time on Kona. The wives [Joanne Williams Harvin ’79 and Belinda Askew Howe ’79] flew to Honolulu on day shopping and visiting the USS Missouri and the Arizona at Pearl Harbor. While they were doing, that Wendell and I golfed. My scores were terrible. But we had a great time.”
