Cape Cod. Hurricane Irene damaged some trees in their yard, but the Cape was spared from serious problems. They trav- eled to Skidmore so Dawn could join Barbie Underhill Collyer, Marion Bolton Northrup, and Betty Johnson Boothe for Reunion Planning Weekend. Dawn and Eric had a wonderful time visiting with college roommate Judy Schwarz Moss - man and her husband, Al, in their Sara - toga home. The Spitzes are in California for the winter. Margaret McConnell Hinrichs and hus-

band John canceled a Russia and Baltics trip last summer when John’s malignant brain tumor appeared; he underwent chemo and radiation for six weeks. The couple is wintering in Vero Beach, FL, where John is doing very well. Dori Schueller Baum wrote in to remi-

nisce about the beautiful wedding of Nancy Dalton Rogal and Jim, which she attended so many years ago. She was dis- tressed to hear from Don Kurtz that his wife and her oldest and dearest friend from Skidmore days, Barbara Biggs Kurtz, died in 2010. Dori lives in Bristol, RI, and hopes to attend our 60th. Randy Moore Foster spent two weeks hiking, fishing, and rafting in Alaska this past fall. She enjoyed all of this strenuous activity with her son and several of his friends. Barbara Neustaedter Scheer and hus-

band Hum took their kids and grandkids to Israel in June. Their fifth trip to that country was wonderful, and they ob - served many changes, especially in Tel Aviv. They then went on to Paris for six days to visit with dear friends. Bobbie, a retired French teacher, and Hum have been to France 25 times. The Scheers lives in Poughkeepsie, NY, but spend four months in Longboat Key FL. Bobbie is looking forward to our 60th! Nancy “CB” Colway Cammann chat-

ted with Nancy Lukens Pegnam, who exclaimed, “Let’s go to our 60th reunion!” CB and Jackie Pinover Mulrow are in - debted to the class agents who have helped our class in its support of the Annual Fund. The Cammanns had a fam - ily reunion at a ranch in Arizona last year; winter finds them riding again at another ranch. “We continue to marvel at nature from the back of a horse!” says CB, who also sculpts. In September Beatrice Kee participated

in Hope for New York’s charity bike ride, starting and ending in Manhattan and looping through Bergen and Rockland Counties. She rode 50 miles, raising more than $2,000 for the charity, which sup-

ports the poor and marginalized in NYC. The ride was a celebration of her 80th birthday; she says “I’m thankful my health has enabled me to do this.” Bill and I spent two days on Martha’s

Vineyard visiting with Nancy Cutting Young and husband John’s daughter Beth and her family. Nancy passed away in 2010, and John died last spring. We so miss both of them and the many fun times we had together at Skidmore re - unions. Bill and I enjoyed our summer on Cape Cod, in Northeast Harbor, ME, and at Lake Winnipesaukee, NH. My fellow reunion planners and I are working to make our 60th reunion, May 31 to June 3, very special for all of us. Just wait until the other classes see 1952 in the parade with our special canes; our theme is “Still Raising Cane!” If your e-mail ad dress is not included in the yellow 1952 class di - rectory you received, please contact me at the e-mail address below.

All is well with Anne Whitehouse Gass in South Paris, ME. All six of her children are doing well, and the grandchildren are beginning to graduate from college. She says spinning wool fiber and judging sheep fleeces is “a fun hobby; keeps me active.” Sylvia Vasselin Caswell visits her hus- band of 57 years, Chet, at a rehab center where he is well cared for. “We spend hours together every day and enjoy every minute. I review our wonderful memories, and Chet joyfully rolls his eyes. We cer- tainly love each other and our families.” This past fall Josephine Kleinmaier


Tornes and husband Jim celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary at their home in Columbus, OH, with their seven chil- dren, five grandchildren, and one great- grandkid, plus friends and extended fami- ly. Jodo and Jim had a blast on their re - cent Tauk tour of the American South - west. She cheered as he completed his 50th marathon in St. George, UT, accom- panied by their son John. Jodo is active in her local church and women’s choir; she loves going to tai chi and water-walking classes and attending Road Scholar educa- tional programs. She invites classmates to contact her at

A hearty “welcome home” to Jill Shelling Remy, who returned to the US after 13 years of teaching business English in China. Apparently, the Chinese govern- ment decrees that foreigners over age 60 are too old to teach or study there. Jill sees some irony in this, as she started teaching in China at 65 and has thus been illegal all along! She plans to take up residence in Allentown, PA, where she was born and raised. In June Marcie Clausen Gray and hus-

band Woody attended his 55th Dart - mouth reunion and then made a delight- ful sojourn to Vermont’s Trapp Family Lodge. Daughter Caroline was married in July on a beach in Rhode Is land (the groom’s sister is Diana MacLear Renehan ’86!). In August the Grays en joyed their annual stay in Quogue on Long Island. Back home in John’s Creek, GA, they keep active with regular exercise at a local fit- ness center. Barbara Gettens Morrissey and hus-

band Jim attended her 61st Leominster High School reunion, organized by friends who were Barbara’s classmates in first grade. The couple also visited Dart - mouth friends, including Marcia Weeks Clayton. Barbara and Jim, who live in Sag Harbor, NY, have seven grandchildren, who all live some distance away. The Morrisseys stay active and healthy and would welcome visits from ’54ers any time. Joan Stevenson Brennan and husband

Tom took granddaughter Katherine to Paris in July. Joan observes, “It was cold, crowded, and outrageously expensive.” The Brennans had a trip planned to Tanzania.

Jo Schmidt Madden and I spent a week- end together in September, which re sulted in a plan for a spring get-together: Come one, come all to a mini-reunion on Balti - more’s Inner Harbor on Saturday, April 21. We will gather for lunch at 12 noon at McCormick and Schmick’s Sea food Restaurant in the waterfront Pier 5 Hotel (which has parking). We hope all of you within driving distance will certainly come; those farther afield might wish to spend the weekend enjoying the harbor’s scenic attractions. We will need to make reservations by April 15. Even if you’re
