In North Carolina last winter Pam Scharmann Stewart hosted three house concerts featuring well-known bluegrass performers. Then she took a trip to the Campbell Folk School with Jane Rahl Apson, and they had a lovely mini- reunion.


Carol Ciccone Gardner missed Reunion,


as May 31 is her birthday and she was with family—which now includes two “spectacular” grandsons: Peter, 5, and Patrick, 3. Dennis Tinsley, husband of classmate Judith Zietz Tinsley, has put together a compilation of songs that she performed. If you are interested in purchasing a copy for $15, contact Dennis at dennisctinsley @comcast.net. All proceeds will benefit the American Brain Tumor Association. I have been substituting at the San Francisco school where I worked and enjoying the connection with students and colleagues—and the flexibility. My son Tony recently moved to Brooklyn and is taking courses in tailoring and construc- tion at FIT. For those who did not come to Reunion, please keep it in mind for 2017.

They look forward to more traveling, as both Susan and Charlie have retired. Their granddaughter is a 2011 graduate of Skidmore. Nancy Cluck McIntyre is in the second

Katy Kramer went back to school a few


years ago and got her master’s in journal- ism. She now teaches composition at Southern New Hampshire University and UNH. Katy began her education career in elementary education, in both teaching and administration. She recently spoke with Professor Emeritus John Reed, who was quite an influence in her life and career. Katy also resumed voice lessons and sings with a choir that sang at Lin - coln Center in NYC for this year’s 9/11 memorial. “These past 10 years have been quite a ride,” she says, adding, “60 is the new…40?” Judith Schapiro Yogman hiked the Ap - palachian Trail with her husband through the Shenandoah Valley from Waynesboro, VA, to Harper’s Ferry, WV. She says it was a beautiful hike, and not too hard. Anne Herrick Lacy teaches in the ele- mentary grades at Bayfield School in Wis - consin. Bonnie Blades Andre says she had two


total knee replacements in an attempt to “recapture some of my youth.” She hopes to ski pain-free, ride her horse, and play with granddaughter Katelyn, 6. Our 45th reunion is coming up next


year. I am sure many of you are beginning to think about returning to campus, see- ing the changes, and reuniting with old friends. Stay tuned for updates through- out this year. DOROTHY KANRICH SANDFORD 333 E. 53RD STREET, APT. 7E NEW YORK, NY 10022-4913 SSCOTT106@AOL.COM


her 65th was to invite her Van Deusen and Kimball floormates to her Nantucket home. Karleen Erhardt, Mary Ann Gid - dings Eldred, Leslie Gardner McGovern, Marcia Jensen Watson, Kay Giles Ar - thur, and I all attended. Barbie and Mary Ann had not seen Kay since 1969. We toured all over Nantucket, ate great food, and enjoyed wonderful conversations about where our lives have taken us and, of course, politics. The daffodils were in full bloom (in honor of our visit). We vowed to make it an annual get-together, with the venues to be determined. For Mother’s Day weekend, four nursing classmates—Judy Roberts Kunisch, Paula Tripp Lusardi, Laurel King Conway, and Candy Gunion Guberman—also went to Nantucket to visit Barbie. They strolled around town and the Sconset Bluff Walk, had a great meal at Lola 41, and made plans for meeting more often than every

Barbie Herbert von der Groeben decided the best way to celebrate


five years. Obviously, Barbie is making good use of her sojourn on Nantucket! Judith Allen Wilson has found that retirement offers chances to explore new careers. She is now working full-time as development director of the Pasadena (CA) Community Foundation, which sup- ports nonprofits and manages donor- advised funds. Judy went on the board to help fundraise for its 60th anniversary year. As a community volunteer, she had done a lot of fundraising and felt this would be a great “third act” after a career in the public sector and several years of consulting. She and husband Randy re - cently ventured to Borneo to see orang- utans in the wild and are planning an Artic trip to view polar bears in their en - dangered habitat. Marilyn Shapiro Darack and I caught


up on events in our hometown of North Adams, MA. Marilyn plays and teaches piano and performs annually; she contin- ues to seek coaches that will help her take on new challenges. She recently completed a three-year stint as accompa- nist for the Golden Tones, a Boston-area senior-citizen chorus of about 70 mem- bers, which she found especially joyous. She also took lessons on the bass clarinet. She participates in a local band whose motto is “Your best is good enough” and practices diligently. Her husband, John, has taken up the bass guitar. Marilyn manages their two vacation cottages in Maine and enjoys the lovely home they built right on the ocean in New Harbor. They have eight grandchildren, from 1 to 18 years old, and see them often. Ann Kleinkauf Gunnin writes, “I thought I retired, but I’ve spent the last several months creating a book of my great-great-grandfather’s letters, written during his service in the Civil War. He fought with the 12th Connecticut volun- teers and was killed at the battle of Cedar Creek in 1864. There are more than 140 letters dating from 1862 to 1864. Now all I need is a publisher!” I am busy with church and neighbor- hood activities and enjoy our grown chil- dren (one in Hartford, one in Washing - ton, DC, and one back in Fairfield, CT, after three years in the San Francisco Bay area). We were planning a five-week spring sojourn in Paris—our fifth extend- ed stay in that wonderful city since my retirement. Recently I helped plan a Jane Jacob’s Walk—an annual event held in 167 cities worldwide to raise awareness of the sustainable and enriching lives to be lived in urban neighborhoods.
