Her work was included in exhibitions in Knoxville, TN, Amherst, MA, and Cincin - nati, OH, last fall. See Diane Bigotte Kendall reports “all quiet on the Weston, CT, front.” She is psyched for Reunion. Jim Friedland is the “proud owner” of Matt, 13, Nick, 12, and Olivia, 8, and was kept busy with plenty of soccer this past fall. Jim works at Credit Suisse in NYC and passes through Saratoga on the way to and from family ski trips. He is looking forward to using his “lifetime season pass” at DA’s during Reunion weekend. Beth Demas-Anderson husband Darrick, and daughter Victoria, 9, went to Quaker Lake, NY, and spent a weekend visiting Ron Levene and family. The Andersons also visited with Ellen Hermann and her boyfriend on sailing weekends in James - town, Newport, RI, and Long Island Sound. Beth, Ellen Hermann, Eve Mulholland, Zack Salino, Christina Papadopoulos, and Steve “Woody” Nacht met at Skid - more, for a great weekend to begin plan- ning our 25th reunion. Beth and Ellen also hung out with Pete Richards, Andy John - son, and Marc Travis. In August the An - dersons went to Colorado to visit daughter Kathryn, a sophomore and resident assis- tant at CU-Boulder. The family had some great hikes at Chautauqua and Mt. Sanitas. Son Christopher is a high school senior; Skidmore is one of his top choices for next fall. Beth encourages classmates to connect with her this winter if they are skiing in the Bromley/Stratton area. Aimee Ventura O’Brien is deep into year four of the architecture program at New York Institute of Technology. She was ac - cepted into the thesis program for next year, so the all-nighters will continue until further notice. Twin daughters Logan and Blake just entered the third grade and have been dubbed “little Aimees” by just about everyone, especially husband Jeff. The O’Briens live in Manhasset, NY. Aimee will be at Reunion this spring. Jane Zoidis Quinn and family are back from Tokyo; they spent four years touring Asia and meeting people from all over the world. She says, “We are now trying to repatriate in New Jersey and feeling a bit like aliens at times.” She and her husband have three children, ages 15, 13, and 11. “Puberty the second time around is still as unpleasant as I remember,” she notes. Jane looks forward to reconnecting with the class at Reunion. Debbie Hurst Rising and husband Ben welcomed son Charles on May 25. Proud brother Wesley is 8. Steve Cress and family, who live in


London, made several trips to the United States to help his oldest son look at col- leges, which gave Steve vicarious joy. “No pressure on him, but I take comfort in the fact that Skidmore is on his short list.” He looks forward to getting back for Reunion. Cindy Johnson Rogers and husband Pat have two kids in high school: their son is a junior and their daughter a freshman. Weekends are spent between soccer fields and hockey rinks, but Cindy reports that “everyone is having a ball!” She looks for- ward to seeing everybody at Reunion. Enthusiastic climber Liz Cole Bemiss reached three summits this year: Kosciusko in Australia, Rainier, and the Grand Teton. Last summer she visited with Roland Mac - kenzie and his daughter Claire in Jackson Hole, WY, and with Linda McCammond ’81 in Prouts Neck, ME. Caroline Kenyon started home renova- tions in March. She finished her term as the SCA president for the middle school and was looking forward to some down time. She has three children in secondary school, with the youngest in fifth grade. Caroline, who definitely plans to attend our 25th, has been in touch with Los An - geles, CA, resident Paula Kurata Kuespert and with Beth Demas-Anderson in Bask - ing Ridge, NJ. Reunion chair Cliff Nelson wants every- one to “get out your smart phones and/or calendars and write Skidmore Class of ’86 Reunion on the dates June 2–5!” He notes
