to a 10-voice women’s a cappella group called the Pollyfonix; they held their first public performance to a standing-room- only crowd. The group specializes in Ren - aissance music but sings everything from Gregorian chants to “Fields of Gold” by Sting; Pam says they should be called the Eclectics. She has fun playing the banjo and hopes to get a bluegrass group to - gether. She visited her daughters in San Francisco in March. Rita Camera Johnson retired after 25 years in the development office at Dart - mouth. She planned daughter Amy’s July wedding and has been playing plenty of golf.

In June Midge Fraser Kral took a road trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles with sister Julia to celebrate their 60th and 65th birthdays by driving down the Pacific Coast Highway. She says, “It was a blast.” Midge’s daughter Maggie flew down from Portland, OR, to join them. Midge says she thought of Laurie Man - del baum Goldberg many times during the drive; the pair did a cross-country trip in the summer of 1971 in her father’s yel- low Mercury station wagon, with Cat Stevens and James Taylor blasting from the 8-track. Midge works full-time at the Bookies, an independent bookstore in Denver. Husband Jerry is retired from being an elementary school principal in the Cherry Creek School District (where he says Nancy Apthorp Paterson was one of his best hires). He enjoys mentor- ing future teachers through a four-year undergrad program at the University of North Carolina; he recently graduated his second class. Son Bill is studying business at Metro State in Denver. Midge spent Labor Day at Linger Longer Cottages in


Fearrington Village, NC, resident Pam Scharmann Stewart belongs


Brewster on Cape Cod. She still keeps the Camp Wono–Skidmore connection with Sherry Mernick and Nancy Garran. After attending the wedding of her fam -


ily’s former exchange student in Ger many, Sandy McDonald Bell met Betsey Chand - ler Sutton for a week in Paris. Sandy says, “Betsey knows the city well and is pretty fluent in French, so it was like having my own personal tour guide. We walked all over and enjoyed the crêpes and outdoor cafés.”


In February Martha Bisbee and Tom were driving from Vermont to Naples, FL, to seek warmer weather. The plan was to stop and see Nancy Nims Mullins for lunch in Williamsburg. They made it to Washington, DC, just before the big snowstorms and ended up fleeing back north. Martha pined, “No balmy weather break this year, no Nancy visit, and no Williamsburg.”


Christine Filbin Hoffman informed me of the death of Betsy Siebeck’s son Noah, 29, in May. Betsy lives in Vermont. We extend our heartfelt condolences to her and her family.


Nancy Apthorp Paterson loves being a grandmother to one-year-old Clara. I was in France this past spring, hiking around Cahors in the Midi-Pyrenees with some friends. LORRAINE RORKE BADER 146 SHRADER STREET SAN FRANCISCO, CA 94117-1017 415-386-2121 LORRAINE.BADER@GMAIL.COM

Linda Garrettson Pizzica and husband Frank took a trip from Florida to Ketchum, ID, this winter for a month of skiing and sightseeing. Their journey included a stop in Austin, TX, where Linda reconnected with Stephanie Sale, who lives in College Station. Steph - anie showed Linda her artwork, including paintings and photography, as well as jewelry that is on display in stores from Taos to New Orleans and in NYC’s Rubin Museum. Linda and Frank plan a move to Clearwater, FL, later this year. Debby Mayer discovered, at NYC’s Book Expo America conference, that she still lives in the 20th century. But she is now publishing her new book online, creating a Website (debbymayer.com), and writing a blog, “2 becomes 1.” Debby has joined Facebook too. She is an editorial director in the publications office at Bard College, occasionally editing its class notes. Constance Dougherty is recovering after surgery for a herniated disc, the result of an old car accident. She says


rehab is much harder at our age. When her son Kip was married last September in California’s Sonoma County, Barbara Pearson and husband Ron flew out for the wedding; they are godparents of both Kip and Tori.


Nancy Cluck McIntyre recently retired from 37 years of teaching first, second, and third grades. When she and her hus- band traveled to Atlanta for daughter Katherine’s graduation from Emory, they stayed with Suzanne Phillips and had a lovely visit. Katherine is planning on medical school after a year off to be an EMT and teaching at Loyola Marymount. Nancy also traveled with her mother to Midway Island, which she says was a very interesting trip. DOROTHY KANRICH SANDFORD 333 E. 53RD STREET, APT. 7E NEW YORK, NY 10022 SSCOTT106@AOL.COM
