travel agenda is a Colorado River trip. Retired teacher Carolyn DeCamp Web -


ber and husband Glyn have traveled through the Caribbean, down the Nile, and up the Dalmatian Coast. They most recently vacationed in Jamaica, Antigua, and Cancun. The couple is in two choral groups and two international folk-dance groups. After 38 years of Midwest winters (and in the midst of helping plan our Reunion), Kathy Rogers Wohlhuter and husband Rick moved to Jacksonville, FL. Their son is in Chicago, and their daughter, a recent graduate of Albion College in Michigan, is spending time with them in Florida. While in Maine visiting her parents, Kathy saw Sibyl Waterman Haley. I could not attend Reunion because our daughter from Washington, DC, came home to Charlotte, NC, to work out some details for her wedding. I am sad to report that Katherine Davis


Tornehl died in 2008 after a battle with cancer. A teacher at the University Lake School in Hartland, WI, she once said, “I don’t care if my kindergartners know how long it takes a chrysalis to turn into a but- terfly. I’m more interested in helping them explore the process. I want them to be mesmerized. I want them to wonder and discover and try to make sense of the transformation. There is freedom to learn and explore at ULS. To watch children learn. To listen to children create a theory, to practice it, to explore it. To see them explain and teach it to another child. That’s power.” JULIA GROSSE BRODHAG 1025 REGENCY DRIVE CHARLOTTE, NC 2821 SKIDDIE71@GMAIL.COM and NURSING CORRESPONDENT: SERENA ROTH BATEMAN SBATEMAN71@SKIDMORE.EDU

She wanted us to know of the passing of her daughter Emily last No - vem ber, after a long illness. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Bobbsie. I traveled to Scotter in Lincolnshire, En - gland, in April to visit my best bud from law school. She lives in a manor house built in 1721. Her English husband, Phil, is an engineer who did computer work on the Chunnel and the Madrid and Singa - pore airports. I understand some of what he says. Think reunion in 2012!
