Nancy had wanted to experience the tattoo since her parents traveled there 50 years ago. In August, Sandra Mokrzynkic Doug -


lass and her husband visited Skidmore— her first visit since 1957. She is a big fan of the new music building.

ed Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and Cambo - dia. She reports they were fascinating places but suggests going there in Decem - ber or January when temperatures only reach the 90s, rather than the 100s! Max and I enjoyed a Skidmore regional event last summer in Hyannisport, MA, at the home of Katie Groves Alverson ’74 and Harry Alverson ’75.

Jacqueline Bush Collopy, retracing some steps from her 1957 Skidmore Euro - pean tour, went back to Rome; then she and Bruce took the train to Venice for a two-week Adriatic cruise to six ports, in - cluding Dubrovnik and Athens. In May they drove to Virginia Beach to visit daughter Kathi and stopped for lunch with former roommate Barbara Ford Ostrander and husband John. It was a timely visit, as John sadly passed away in June. The Collopys continued on to Con - necticut, then drove across New York

“not too sunny California” that she and Beverly Beatson Grossman got together. Margretta Beishline Lisick thinks that

Her son Skip even assisted the pilots in docking them. Younger son Alden, who also lives on the island, has become quite a gardener. Gretchen encourages anyone planning to visit Mount Desert Island to stop at Penury Hall and say hello.
