I am living coed days vicariously by having season tickets to Stan ford football, and I attended the Orange Bowl in Miami, where it was fun to do Atlantic Ocean swimming in January.


’70


In June Liz Miller Grasty wel- comed grandson Oliver, who was


born in England on Liz’s 25th wedding anniversary. In August Liz and husband Warren visited across the pond; they stayed in Harrogate, a former spa town much like Saratoga Springs. They enjoyed seeing castles, gardens, and beautiful small towns. Liz is also great-auntie to four beau- tiful babies, and godmother to a little boy and his twin sister (named Elizabeth, after her). Now retired, Warren is a volunteer math tutor and financial literacy educator. Liz is in her 36th year with credit unions, a rewarding career that started with her second job after graduation. She is proud to work at Northwest FCU in Herndon, VA, and says, “A short commute and good staff help, too.” Liz is contemplating retir- ing in the mid-Atlan tic region in a few years.


It was nice to receive holiday greetings

Last summer Jenni Walter King, Janet Felken, Taffy Lawson, Sandy Gross Bress ler,and Vicary Clark Thomas were joined by Carter Coates Donovan and Kate Stephenson Taylor at Jenni’s lovely home in Wellfleet, MA. The group en - joyed long talks on the deck and long walks on the beach. Chris Waterbury Dearnaley says she had a fabulous time at our 40th reunion. “Seeing old friends again always rejuve- nates me. Thanks to all who planned the fun! Skidmore is an amazing and wonder- ful place and I cherish the opportunities my education has afforded me.” Jane Cady Haley (haleypc@optonline. net) took an eight-week, 9,200-mile road trip around the US last fall and chronicles the trip at seejanedrive.blogspot.com. She had a great time stopping to visit Dale Eddolls Goodyear in Robesonia, PA, and Steph anie Brewster Wagoner in Palo Alto, CA. Jane’s married daughter, Betsy, lives Santa Monica, daughter Meg is in Atlanta, and son Pete is a sophomore at Bates College. Jane still is “officially” in Greenwich, CT, but spends loads of time on Martha’s Vineyard. Alice Phillips Zelkha and Eli, her hus-

The highlight of Dana Warner


Fisher’s year was her daughter’s wedding. Her son officiated at the cere- mony. Aside from en - joying her role as moth-


This past winter, beautiful North Caro - lina was buried under about six inches of snow—our worst storm in seven years! Our 40th reunion is only weeks away. Over the past several years I’ve heard from many of you; now I’d like to see you. JULIA GROSSE BRODHAG 1025 REGENCY DRIVE CHARLOTTE, NC 28211 SKIDDIE71@GMAIL.COM and

er of the bride, Dana appeared in the new film Elephant Sighs, with Edward Asner. I wonder if Charlon McMath Hibbard thought 40 years ago that she would earn 21 cars from Mary Kay Cosmetics! Now an Independent premier-club sales direc- tor with Mary Kay, she’s selling a “second passion”—Wowgreen eco-friendly clean- ing products.


Instead of the estimated best-case sce- nario of eight months, Candy Keeler Krop’s home in Virginia Beach, VA, sold in just eight weeks. She and husband Tom are moving into a log home and barn in Af ton, where they hope to begin an “awe- some” organic garden and other ventures. Betsy Downes Brown and husband Randy purchased a condo in Charleston, SC, and love spending time there with their black standard poodle, Charley Brown.


Carol Machcinski Santora is sorry she will miss Reunion due to a wedding con- flict. She continues to be involved in health-care issues. She is also a profession- al photographer; see cmsantora.com. She offers kudos to dear friend Ellen Schapps Richman, the recipient of several awards for her work with the United Jewish Appeal.


Maggy Ames retired from practicing law and spends her time in her pottery studio.


Debbie Baum Chapin-Horowitz works at her family venture fund, EdsLink, which she and husband Ed founded shortly after they married in 2000. They recently launched a startup satellite communications company, fo - cused on providing commercial satellite services to the US government. They live and work in NYC but spend a good deal of time in Washington, DC. Son Josh is a reporter for News 12 in Brooklyn; Ed’s sons are both married and work at Citi - bank and Accenture. Debbie also spends time visiting her parents in Florida. Her dad is 92, her mother 88. Sue Reinhardt Groesbeck and husband Mark live in Toronto, Ontario, where Sue is principal of Havergal College. She en - joys her work immensely. In 2010 she and Mark, who travel all over the world for the college, visited Vietnam, Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Dubai, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and locations across Canada. Children Alicia, Sam, and Mason are doing well in Madison, WI; their siblings Christina and Brandon are fine in Atlanta, GA. Sue and Mark will return to Hilton Head Island, SC, in 2013, after her work with Havergal is complete. Sue encourages classmates to visit them in Toronto. Leslie Graham enjoyed a wonderful day


with Keppie Miller Sullivan and husband Dave during a visit to southern California last June. Over the holidays she heard from Barb LeMoine Hansbury and Susan Parker Brown. In January she started her sixth year with Management Recruiters International. Leslie reminds us that age 60 is now considered “the new 50.” Pat McEvoy, retired from her position as a high school art teacher for almost 10 years now, has been furthering her career as a painter.
