CA, and Madison, WI, through February and in San Francisco, CA, from March through late spring. The Girl Scout Coun - cil of San Diego named Arline one of the city’s ten Cool Women of 2010. Pat Courtney Dayton Strong turned 80

and stopped coloring her hair—“what a relief!” she says. Gardening is number-one on her list; she plants several annuals every month but mostly cares for perenni- als. She is the mother of five married chil- dren and 13 grandchildren. The family has a reunion every five years at a cabin built by Pat’s Norwegian grandfather in 1903; there are also tents galore. Pat con- tinues to drive (although she avoids high- ways), and belongs to two book clubs. She sees a lot of Kitty Wolff Hartzell. Jean Adams Shaw thanks all classmates

who supported Skidmore’s annual fund this year. She was in Saratoga Springs for a Friends of the Presidents meeting last April; she says the campus looked terrific, and the Arthur Zankel Music Center is “perfection.” She had a nice visit with Barb Underhill Collyer while there. Sally Evans Hunt’s husband, Ken, passed away peacefully at home in June. Sally says Ken had been ill for a while “but kept fighting to play another game of golf.” She plans to stay in Fort Myers, FL; her daughter lives a few hours away in Tampa. Sally enjoys playing golf weekly and bridge twice a week. Randy Moore Foster and Cindy Hart -

wig Gyorgy stayed in a hotel the night be fore going to Tanglewood in Massachu - setts to watch the Boston Symphony re - hearse. They then met up with JP Pohl - man O’Rourke in Saratoga, where they visited the Spa State Park, saw our class lily garden and the Zankel Music Center on campus, and watched horse sales at the new Fasig Tip ton pavilion. Randy and Cindy were amazed by the crowded streets of Sara toga. JP joined them the next day for the trip to Cindy’s home in Maine. A boat ride around the lake Cindy lives on was a treat. Of course, there was lots of talking and reminiscing about Skidmore days. They had a great time. Ann Ridge Adams and husband Mac visited with Betsy Clark Mc Isaac on Mar tha’s Vine yard while on a sailing trip around the islands and ports of Massa - chu setts and Rhode Island. Ann and Mac then drove to Pennsylvania, visiting Nancy Colway Cammann and husband George and also Ann’s sister’s retirement home. The couple continued on to Annapolis to attend Mac’s 60th reunion at the US Naval Academy. Nancy Strouce Ferris’s husband, George,

died in 2008, three months after a trip to Kenya that included 16 family members, ages 5 to 80. George had been determined to share his love for Kenya, which he vis- ited 17 times as a tourist and a consult- ant, with his grandchildren. Nancy spent last winter in Pan ama, where daughter Kimberly’s husband is head of commerce with the US embassy.

Skidmore shares the sad news that class secretary Joan Pohlman O’Rourke, who composed this column of notes, died in November. More information on her will appear in the next issue of Scope. ALUMNI AFFAIRS OFFICE SKIDMORE COLLEGE 815 NORTH BROADWAY SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY 12866

Tillie Jones Neri and Gene sold their Wa - terford, CT, home and moved to a condo complex for people 55 and older, near Rocky Neck State Park in Niantic. Their new home was christened with a party attended by several generations, many also celebrating birthdays. The Neris were joined by Anne Shaaber Camp ney on a visit to Sally Sanderson Cutler’s new apartment in Keene, NH. Tillie made all of Sally’s new window treatments, and Gene installed the hardware. Gail McKay is canoeing, entering paint- ings in juried shows, taking her first fly- ing lesson, discovering a man who adds zest to her life, and having her annual reunions in Sarasota with cousins Anne Schaaff Wadhams ’51 and her sister Jean Schaaff Meenan ’54. In August, Susie Eustis Bogart graciously invited Roger and me to her home in Boothbay Harbor, ME, where we enjoyed libations and some brief time together. Susie was looking forward to the wedding of a granddaughter on her “favorite island” (long-ago established by her family and accessible by boat). It was clear that Susie’s recent “surgical repair” has agreed with her as she shared with us her latest doings.

opened the concert series of the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles. In October she was delighted to attend the dedica- tion of Skidmore’s Arthur Zankel Music Center with me, Jo anne Schmidt Mad - den, and Sallie Neu weiler Henrie. The four of us hugged and wept a bit as we sang the Alma Mater. A great time was had by all! Jill Shelling Remy has been teaching English to Chinese businessmen for 12 years. She recently added Seoul, Korea, to her travel roster—she went with a tour group on an army bus to Panmunjom, the DMZ, where they entered the room in which actual governmental meetings and negotiations are held, and the group was photographed with a North Korean guard. Jill enjoys keeping in touch with classmates, so contact her at chinajill1998 Nursing major Barbara Gettens Morris -

sey joins us all in celebrating the return of a Skidmore nursing program. Husband Jim recovered nicely from open heart sur- gery this summer. The couple keeps busy and involved with their seven grandchil- dren, ages 10 to 19. “I can still dance!” proclaims self-de - scribed bionic woman Roslyn Newman Wolin after receiving two new knees and a new hip. Since discovering the driving distance between them is relatively short, she and Celeste Schnur Stone visit one another occasionally. As president of the San Fernando Valley Artists Council, Roz coordinated the group’s annual autumn Valley Artists Studio Tour. Sue Davis Tull and Bill enjoyed a boat

trip from Rhode Island to the Sanguenay River and Quebec via the Hudson and Mohawk Rivers, the Erie Canal, and the St. Lawrence River. Sue met Sally Harrison Dickinson ’51 on board; as a conse- quence, several Skidmore songs echoed across the water. This cruise, plus a few trips to their camp in the Adirondacks, served as a respite from the hot Washing - ton, DC, summer. Susan Kellogg Cook’s husband, Annan,

died last January; he had spent three years in a nursing home with Alzheimer’s. Susan sold her Stuart, FL, home and spent six weeks last winter on Marco Island, where she enjoyed great weather and had a won- derful time. Lydia Pardo McMinn spends most weekends at her Vermont residence; dur- ing the week, she is at home in Madison, CT, where daughter Lydia and son Bill live with their families. Grandson Trevor is a freshman at Norwich University, where he runs on the cross-country team. Lydia’s
