You can see my work (including a 10' x 10' installa- tion on a garage door done in nylon rope, plastic lace, washers, and the like) on Facebook at Fiberlinks Florida or at my name.” Lesley Shanahan Odland is enjoying


her three children and training for a March triathalon in Kona, HI. She is semi- retired but starting a new real-estate busi- ness after several years as director of trade shows for the Master Builders. Cheryl Montana Fletcher writes that she and Deb McLean Hameline had a great time at their high school reunion in New Hartford, NY. Cheryl has retired from teaching art for 32 years. She is now sell- ing Mary Kay makeup, and her painting career (as Montana Fletcher) is taking off. She sold three paintings recently and says, “I just love retirement!” Joan Karsten and fiancé Brent enjoyed


the Skidmore Cape Cod reception in Hy - annis Port this past summer. She says, “Somehow, Skiddies have an innate abili- ty to make everyone feel welcome. along with transporting us back in time to revi- talize joyful memories of Skidmore.” Hur - ricane Sandy left Joan without power, so she and her 90-year-old mom said, “Let’s blow this clam bake” and headed else- where to enjoy “those things we take for granted: lights, hot showers, Rasmussen polls, coffee, coffee, and coffee.” In October Barb Wonson-Liukkonen received the annual Dave Ford Award at the Minnesota Water Resources Confer - ence in St. Paul, MN. Barb reports, “This was the first time the award was present- ed to a woman, and I was truly honored to be nominated by three young profes- sionals I had mentored over the years.” She’s now retired and lives near Lake Superior in northern Minnesota. In Au - gust “we moved into our new ‘dream’ (aka nightmare) home,” which still had no heat in November. At last year’s Reunion, George Moskoff attended the “Manstock” event for the “early men” at Skidmore. In 2011 he got divorced after 23 years of marriage and moved 10 miles, from Sebastopol, CA, to Santa Rosa—still in wine country—to be near his boys Alexander, 23, and Ethan, 19, who moved to San Luis Obispo to start college. George’s startup APG Mobile Applications creates apps that provide a social benefit; he says he is “reinventing” himself one more time in the work world. For recreation he enjoys mountain biking.

Now in her second career, she is working “a ridiculous amount of hours—and checking out Santa Fe and environs.” Since her three children are grown, Laurel is free to focus on this “midlife adventure.” She looks forward to reuniting with Skiddie friends at Reunion.

Julia ’11 “lived in the same apartment in Scribner Village that I lived in 32 years prior. I know if they had not repainted, she would have seen my initials written in the closet!” Wendy Coleman Hilboldt still substi- tute-teaches and tutors in New Canaan, CT, and rides shifts as a volunteer EMT. She says, “My recent 20-hour shift during Hurricane Sandy was certainly thrilling!” Husband Jim is an international business attorney for Raytheon in Arlington, VA, so he and Wendy commute back and forth. She says, “Life is an adventure, but we really love our time in the DC area when I’m there.” Eldest daughter Emily had a little boy last November. They live in north Chicago, and the Hil - boldts see them as much as possible; they planned to celebrate his first birthday over Thanksgiving. At the opening of Roberta Paul’s public art project Move Me at the Cambridge Arts Council last April, numerous Skiddies attended, including some Roberta hadn’t seen in more than 20 years. Kim Spencer, Victoria Menz Hall, Susan Danseyar Pitman, Margaret Isham, June Bissell House, and Marc Chabot were all there. Roberta says, “I can’t believe the wonder- ful support and how great it was to see them.” She also had a portfolio printed, as part of the project, by Jonathan Singer ’92 at Boston-based Singer Editions.
