As treasurer of the New Dorp High Alum- ni Club since 1980, I send out thank-you letters for class dues and run the annual dinner in May. I hosted the whole clan of 23 for dinner on Thanksgiving and Christmas but think I may give that up. My health is good, and I try to walk five days a week. I work two days a month as a waitress at the Bennett Café, which is run by volunteers of Staten Island Histori- cal Society. I also work Sundays at a bakery.

AT WORK Perennial painter W


hen Betti Detrick Williams ’49 was a child, she would wait until her mother


went to sleep, and then she would get up and draw. Now an artist who paints realistic water- colors and oils, she can ply her craft whenever she pleases, in her studio in Strafford, N.H. An art major at Skidmore, she went on to teach at all levels in public and private schools in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, and New Hampshire. “I love children and enjoyed teaching them how to paint,” Williams says. At home, she taught art and pottery to her own children— all of whom have followed artistic routes as well: one son is a woodworker, another is a pot-


ter, and her daughter is a graphic designer. In addition to teaching, Williams was a de-


signer of textiles and wallpaper products, and notes that she “made tiles for a New York archi- tect who used them for murals and in furniture.” She was also involved with the Coast Guard Art Program, painting the US Coast Guard in action. Those paintings, she says, are in the Coast Guard museum in Washington, D.C. Williams, who has been painting professionally


for more than 60 years, says her approach to making art hasn’t changed much over the years; she works from photographs she’s taken of her subjects—including landscapes, seascapes, snow scenes, houses, and front porches. She paints four days a week, to the accompaniment of country-western music. For nearly 20 years Williams had her own


gallery on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. She also had galleries in Naples, Fla., and Rockland, Maine. Now she exhibits her work in a dozen or more summertime art shows. “Painting keeps me happy,” she says. “And the best part is that I can paint pictures to keep other people happy too.” —MTS
