Shelter Island with oldest son Scott ’93 and his bride, middle son Jon, with his wife and 13-month-old daughter (Sandy and Richard’s first grandchild), youngest son James, and Sandy’s mother, who is “99 years young.” NYC residents Joan Agisim Odes and husband Stuart sold their apartment in Chelsea to take a smaller one near where Flatiron, Chelsea, and Greenwich Village meet. Stuart spends time in a wheelchair, so during renovations to make the new apartment ADA-compliant, Joan and Stuart were living in an Extended Stay America hotel near the Lincoln Tunnel in New Jersey. In September, they took a break by going on the Skidmore Alumni Travel Program trip Symphony on the Blue Danube, a classical music cruise through Hungary, Slovakia, Austria, Germany, the Czech Republic, and Poland. Ann Ramsay-Jenkins is one of the pro- ducers of the Broadway show First Date, which opened at the Longacre Theatre in Manhattan in August and was doing very well! Mary Loveland Wasserman enjoys her

Alan runs WAMC pub- lic radio and publishes the Legislative Gazette. They will celebrate their 43rd wedding anniversary with a trip to Greece. Roselle always enjoys hearing from Skidmore friends. Christine “Tee” Neville is happily liv- ing in Maine, where she is an advocate for highly gifted children and a volunteer master gardener at an organic farm. She has also created her own gardens and enjoys processing the wonderful vegeta- bles they produce. Christine is slowly refurbishing her 200-year-old house and barn, which she finds very rewarding.

edited Off the Charts: Asynchrony and the Gifted Child, 20 essays by renowned gift- ed-education specialists, which was pub- lished last year by Royal Fireworks Press. Artist Diane Burko’s latest exhibition, Diane Burko: Glacial Perspectives, opened at the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University in September and will run through July 31. Her landscapes chronicle the depletion of polar ice, capturing frag- ile, remote environments that are crucial to sustaining life on earth. For more than 40 years, Diane has addressed monumen- tal and geological phenomena, from American scenic icons to volcanoes on four continents. Since 2006, she has focused on the effects of global warming. The exhibit was funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. This past June, my husband and I downsized from our home in Sharon, Mass., to a condo in Boston, like so many other “boomers.” Our two sons now live a couple of MBTA stops away, and we see them often. After 38 years, I am winding down my divorce litigation practice and transitioning to divorce mediation (www.LoDolceFamilyLawMediationGroup .com). The focus is on settling family-law disputes civilly and more affordably. I feel that this approach allows me to bet- ter meet the objectives I personally espouse. ANN C.

I attended my 50th high school reunion in New Jersey this past fall. Many of you have interesting stories from your high school reunions as well. I welcome hearing them. While I was on the East Coast, I met up with Chris Wilsey Goodwin in NYC; we had a wonderful lunch at the Boat House in Central Park. Chris Goodwin and husband Sy exchanged apartments with a woman in the Montmartre neighborhood of Paris, France, for two weeks this past June. They were able to see Sacré-Coeur Basilica from their apartment window. The couple spent most of time exploring the city’s beautiful gardens and spring blooms. It was their second time visiting Paris on a home exchange, a mode of traveling that Chris loves. In August they took a trip with Road Scholar Elderhostel to the national parks, touring the Tetons, Yellowstone, Glacier, and Banff. Chris says, “The weather was beautiful and the

mountains were spectacular.” Sally Huling Hilderbrand and Mary Whitaker Taber joined Judy Harris Soper and husband John for a weekend get-together last year. They enjoyed tak- ing in Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and then went to Mary’s house on the coast in Westport, Mass. Sally observes, “It was most delightful! Here’s to good friends that I’ve made solely through Reunion! Mary Taber’s youngest child, Emily, got married on Memorial Day weekend 2013 to Chris Alger. Mary walked Emily down the aisle—“very fun!” Sandy Colony, Bryn Peters Madden, Nancy Apthorp Paterson, and Betsy Boschen Lutz were there to witness and share the joyous occasion. In June, Mary accepted the posi- tion of executive director of the counsel- ing agency where she works. “Retirement will have to wait!” Nancy Sherbrooke spent the summer at


her 10-acre horse farm in Greenwich, N.Y., keeping the grass mowed to accom- modate a pasture for her horses. She has been riding dressage for the past few years, to keep herself “a little limber.” Nancy winters at her place in Tucson, Ariz., not far from her brother’s home. For physician Margaret Baker Rennels, “Retirement is an adjustment, but life without stress is much healthier!” This past summer, she traveled to Senegal, Africa, to monitor a vaccine trial funded by the Gates Foundation. She flew home from the country’s one airport the morn- ing President Obama arrived there. Peggy also enjoyed a wonderful “catch-up visit” from Colorado resident Susie Merrick Bacon. Barb Feuchter finished 300 hours of volunteer service teaching reading to stu- dents at the Adams School in East Boston, Mass., last year with the Generations pro- gram. Sponsored by AARP and Ameri- Corps, the program strengthens public- school education by deploying senior citi- zens as tutors. Those hours earned Barb the program’s Siegel Award, which paid for a course she later took at the French Cultural Center. Barb visited roommate Sue Parker Gurney in Darien, Conn., during the Thanksgiving holiday in 2012. Barb notes, “It was almost like 46 years never happened; we have so much in common!” LORRAINE RORKE BADER 146 SHRADER ST. SAN FRANCISCO, CA 94117-1017 415-386-2121 LORRAINE.BADER@GMAIL.COM
