Lon don enjoyed a pic- nic lunch in May with Con nie Messler Shar - man near Connie’s central En gland home in Lea mington Spa. Peggy reports that Connie is doing well and the two had a lovely time together. Connie shared stories about her 70th reunion in 2007, when she was joined on campus by 11 family members, including great-niece Julie Lutz ’05. Connie also shared that weekend with dear friend Dot Meincke Heroy. She remains active in her favorite local charities, the United Nations Associ - ation, One World Link, and Save the Chil - dren, for which she has volunteered for more than 50 years. Peggy, who left Con - nie with a “Creative Thought Matters” sticker for the scooter that gets her around town, adds, “I told her it’s good to know you can be a vibrant and beautiful woman at 97!” ALUMNI AFFAIRS OFFICE SKIDMORE COLLEGE 815 N.

each week. She spent six weeks in Wil - liams burg, VA, visiting her youngest daughter and family. Marie took her first- ever cruise to Nassau, the Bahamas, to attend her granddaughter’s wedding. Summer activities included a wedding in Ithaca, NY, dance revues for two great- granddaughters in Massachusetts, lots of family gatherings, and a Class of 1936 alumni banquet at Pulaski High School. Helen Garrett Dejnozka had cataract surgery last June. The next month, she en joyed a visit from son Jan and his fami- ly and nephew Frank Hayward, son of sis- ter Margaret Garrett Hayward ’38, in Niskayuna, NY. Helen still plays piano in church, but “only easy music, like hymns!” I went to Cincinnati, OH, in March for my brother’s birthday. My retirement community put on a musical written by one of our residents, a doctor, about match-making in a senior residence. I played the part of the matchmaker. We sang a cute song about “looking in the nasty mirror at wrinkles,” but the best part of the experience was that none of us could really sing! I was considered tone- deaf at Skid more—it just goes to show you! CHARLOTTE STERN ROUBEY THE CEDARS 626 CEDAR CLUB CIRCLE CHAPEL HILL, NC 27517 SKIDDY40@COCHILL.NET

In June, Nettie Meads Hoyt trav- eled to California to see her son


at our 70th reunion. We missed Adele Bagg Durward, who had hoped to attend. Ruth and I heard former Skidmore Presi - dent David Porter and his wife, Helen, dis- cuss their book on Lucy Skid more Scrib - ner’s date books; her terse jottings offer insight into the person we know only from portraits. We ’41ers led the Parade of Classes, riding in a golf cart right behind the Schenectady Pipe Band. Their colorful outfits and sprightly music, along with beautiful weather, added up to perfection. The Zankel Center was a fine setting for the alumni awards ceremony. We also attended lectures by psychology professor Sheldon Solomon and history professor Tillman Nechtman. College staff arranged for us to be transported around campus and had students to wait on us at the pic- nic. Both Ruth and I appreciated how spe- cially we were treated for being old!
