Jane Finneman Hochman shared a nice day in London this spring with Tamar Karet (formerly Tammy Greenhauf) and Sabre Gilmartin (formerly Linda Sable). She looks forward to these mini-reunions each time she and her husband go to Lon - don. Tamar lives there, and Sabre lives in the Midlands. Jane is gearing up to write another book with partner Gilbert Foley, aiming for publication in a year. Jane says, “After that, I think you can say, ‘And that’s all she wrote.’” Jane co-chairs the program-planning committee for the New York Zero-to-Three Network, which advo- cates for traumatized children. In May she attended its annual conference on “Trauma and Resilience in Young Children and their Families.” In June Karen Levin Coburn returned from a two-week trip to Turkey, the high- light of which was several days in Istan - bul.


Judith Fuller Aronson received an hon- orable mention for her watercolor Ele - phant Walk: Chiang Mai in the annual juried competition of the Watercolor and Graphic Arts Society of Mobile, AL. An interview with writer Susan Hand Shetterly, regarding her early days in the “back to the land movement” in Maine, is at www.susanhandshetterly.com/news.htm. John and I had the kids and grandkids down to a marvelous house we rented for two weeks in North Captiva, FL, in April. In May all else goes on the back burner while we get the gardens up and running. In June we hosted a fundraiser dinner for Vermont’s Democractic gubernatorial hopeful Matt Dunne, which was quite an undertaking but a real success. I have art- work in a new gallery, Long River Studios in Lyme, NH, and sold my first piece there in May. John lost his father, almost 95, the same month. We were planning for a great summer in Vermont, punctuat- ed by our annual jaunt to Nantucket with our son and his family.

Phebe Turner Brown’s life is full with children, grandchildren, dogs, and volunteer work for Al-Anon. A resi- dent of Old Town Alexandria, VA, she retired (at age 51!) from a career in retail. Every day she walks a big dog and then continues for another three miles on her own, a practice she credits for both her health and her same college weight (“al - though not the same figure”). Phebe’s daughter Colony and her husband and


three children live three miles away. Her son Douglas lives in New Jersey. Phebe says she surrounds herself with good books, good music, and good art. A gov- ernment major, she likes being close to Washington, DC. She says she is “a big Obama fan!” Abby Arnt Rueb and her husband live on Orcas Island, WA, where Abby occa- sionally performs in a play and caters events.


Bev Fuhrmann Gregory met Jane Ho - mer Nolan at a handbell concert a few years back. Jane is the founder and direc- tor of the Shoreline Ringers, 14 musicians from eastern Connecticut. The group en - tertains in the area but has also performed on TV and at the US Coast Guard Academy and Carnegie Hall. After Hamilton College shut down for the summer, Jackie Savoie Medina and her husband set off to their summer home in Westhampton, Long Island. Their three daughters and seven grand- children (and their dogs) love to visit for some sun and surf. Jackie says being a grandparent is such fun. Their youngest daughter, Jocelyn, is a jazz singer in NYC. Jackie encourages jazz lovers to check her out at jocelynmedina.com. Sarah Coulter Danner is still in South Dakota, working on the Pine Ridge reser- vation. She served as a nurse midwife and pediatric nurse practitioner with the Indian Health Service for three years and then as chair of the nursing department at Oglala Lakota College for six years. She’s currently a part-time nurse midwife for Native Women’s Health Care and teaches maternal child health for the University of South Dakota. She is work- ing on her PhD dissertation in nursing and health policy. Sarah has four sons: Eric, Drew, Brian ’03, and Neil, who just graduated from Middlebury. Class president Val Burkhardt Marier spent last summer at Kennebunk Beach, ME, enjoying outings with kids and grandkids. The Mariers just welcomed their fourth grandchild, Henry. Val and Bob play lots of golf, and Val is knitting up a storm (sweaters, hats) for the grand- children. She says her big accomplish- ment this past winter was winning the husband-wife golf championship (aka the Divorce Open) at their Florida club. After more than 30 years teaching first through fourth grades, Nancy Tessein Stine retired last June. Since then she and her husband, Robert, a retired emergency physician, have traveled to Hawaii, Flor - ida, Europe, and the Caribbean. They are enjoying retirement.


John and I are thoroughly enjoying re - tirement in Atlanta. We miss Connecti cut but are happy that we can play golf most of the year. We have made many new friends in the three years since our move and have enjoy many of our “old” friends whom we met here during the two previ- ous IBM-“sponsored” moves in the ’70s and ’80s. Helen Illingworth Challenger ’61 and husband Dave are neighbors. The best part is that we are close to our son Chris, a physician, wife Jen, and three grandchildren, ages 10, 8, and 7. The not- so-great part is that we’re far from daugh- ter Kate, husband Scott, and their year-old adopted son, who live in Winnetka, IL. We visit as frequently as we can.

Those at Reunion had a great time making new friendships, renewing old ones, and lunching at Furness (now a bed and breakfast), where some of us lived freshman year. The Skidmore cam- pus is magnificent, as are the thriving city and residential mansions. The college is maturing into a very special institution as it approaches a 100th anniversary next year. Special thanks go to our class lead- ers, agents, and reunion volunteers. Long Island school principal Eve Loth - ringer Dieringer has been happily mar- ried for two years to Mark Levy, who was present at Reunion. Eve reports that she cried while singing the Alma Mater. Judy Farmer Fulton and Lee Cranshaw Rowan are already planning ways to at - tract a huge turnout for our 50th. Lee’s Eggs in a Carton was exhibited at the alumni art show. Two years ago Cynthia Brainerd Troischt retired as clinical coordinator at a day treatment program in Schenectady, NY. She now enjoys time for herself and her family, which includes three sons and four grandchildren. Judy Farmer Fulton and husband Rufus enjoy retirement with their children and eight grandchildren living close by. In May they rented a farmhouse in Tuscany for three weeks and enjoyed day trips, sampling cuisine, and drinking wine. Sandy Koch Prior and Ron think we look well for folks in our 60s—maybe even better than before! My husband, Harvey, and I reminded Sandy that she taught me how to iron, but Harvey now does his own! Nancy Wall Thorne has never missed a reunion and marvels at how easily we
