It’s hard to believe, but our 20th reunion is right around the corner! We hope you’ll be at Skidmore, May 31 to June 3, for what’s surely going to be our best reunion yet. Several of us met on campus over the sum- mer to start the plan- ning, and we’re con- tinuing by phone. It’s not too late to volun- teer if you’re inter- ested! We want to get the Class of ’92 en gaged in rallying their peers to return to campus. As Jenny Rose Savino says, “We’re a pretty competitive bunch, so our goal is to have the largest 20th-reunion class in Skidmore history.” To accomplish that, we’ll need 105 attendees, which sounds like a great ’92 party! Laura Oppenheimer Carlier and hus-


band Laurent welcomed their second child, Adele, in April. Laura reports that brother Felix, 2, loves his baby sister! Dave Jodka and wife Kathleen wel- comed son Matthew on August 29. He joins brothers Andrew and Connor and sister Clare. The Jodka clan lives in Scitu - ate, MA.


Just after she agreed to take on the PTO presidency at her children’s school in Charlotte, NC, Mity Lenahan Fowler and husband Jef had an opportunity they couldn’t pass up and moved to Ohio! Jef is now with Key Bank, and the family,


including 9-year-old twins Carson and Morgan and 6-year-old Jackson, is in Shaker Heights. After their stint in the South, they’re slowly adjusting to a mid- western winter. Jennifer Chang Carmichael and hus-

Jennifer’s competitive show-jumping is on hold while she launches a boutique brand called Cabretta Couture, selling bespoke leather gloves for fashion, riding, driving, and shooting. From her Skidmore network she’s found top-shelf strategic consultants Zack Schwartz ’11 and Kiyo Egashira ’12 to help with planning for the new business. More on the sad news of Elliott Warren, reported last issue: He died unexpectedly in May while vacationing in Florida. His family had a memorial service in New Jer sey, which Ted Kersten, Randall Bach - ner, Lauren Gropp Lowry and Ben Low - ry ’93, Lisa Newlin Galeano, Jimmy Zan - kel, Kara Spellman, and Tom Hyland ’91 attended. Elliott lived in NYC, where he worked as a graphic designer, practiced bikram yoga, and created art. He had recently graduated from culinary school at the Natural Gourmet. He is survived by his parents, two sisters, and beloved nieces and nephews. A group dedicated to his memory has been formed on Face - book, and plans are in the works for a exhibition of his artwork in NYC. We extend condolences to his family.

Our class helped Skidmore reach a social- networking benchmark: when Frits Abell clicked “like” on Skidmore’s Facebook page this fall, that made 5,000 fans, giv- ing the communications office a mile- stone to celebrate. We hope you “like” this page too! Kate Cheney Myhre, who is still man- aging the Boston Consulting Group’s cor- porate Web site, has also launched her own business, Room Service Staging and Design, to “help home-sellers in the


greater Newburyport, MA, area decorate their homes to sell faster and for more money.” Garland Nelson encourages Skidmore friends looking for a band for weddings, special events, or corporate shows to give him a call. His band, Soul Session, per- forms nationwide. In August Lindsey Hammond married Andreas Schmid in Becket, MA.

son Ryder on August 23. He joins brother Jake, 3. The family relocated from down- town Boston to a residence near Harvard Square in Cambridge, MA. “The street is full of Harvard professors, which makes me by far the dumbest person living there,” quips Matt. He stays in touch with Jon Hoffman, who lives in Draper, UT, Brett Schneider in Santa Monica, CA, Steve Frohlich ’95 in NYC, Katie Kil - lough Kelly in Medford, MA, and Tony Reidy of Charlestown, MA.

and family took an RV trip from Pensa - cola, FL, through a number of states, turn- ing around in Warsaw, IN, and ending in New Orleans, LA. They had a great time with sons Colby, 10, and Logan, 8, who enjoyed the family’s third leg of a cross- country quest. Next summer they head to Texas and Arizona, where they hope to visit with Amy Burbank Kelaher ’93. Melinda loves her job as a pre-K teacher at AZ Academy on St. Croix, VI.
