13 years. Daughter Lauren, 27, works in regulatory affairs for medical-device company Terumo and lives in North Brunswick. Son Christopher, 24, is happi- ly working in retail. Susan spends as much time as possible traveling. Recent destinations include Israel, France, Thai - land, China, and Iceland. She would love to hear from classmates. Michele Herman authored a prose poem that was featured in New York Ladies, a the- atrical collage of lyrics, poems, and mono- logues performed at the Hudson Guild Theatre in NYC in fall 2013. She also per- formed in the production, her first acting gig since the Penfield talent show. She encourages classmates to check out her new Web site, www.micheleherman.com. Michele says all this activity is compen- sation for a newly empty nest: Her younger is a freshman at Hampshire College and his older brother is a senior at the University of Chicago. Ann Kuhn Levitan is very proud to announce that their eldest daughter Sarah graduated from Boston College Law School in May 2013. During all the festivities she was delighted to discover that Sarah’s friend Laura was the daughter of Sue Sahlman-Stoffel—the world keeps getting smaller and smaller! Sarah lives and works in NYC. Ann’s younger daughter, Emily, stayed in California after graduating from USC (and still misses her visits with Kim West) and works in television develop- ment. Although the summer was not long enough, Ann managed to visit dear friends Becky Crumb, Mary Bates, Leslie Bergman Savage, and Jean Scholtz Kegel ’81. She is looking forward to Reunion.


dom of her new position as director of the Terry J. Lundgren Center for Retailing at the University of Arizona at Tucson. Enid LeWinter Davis has been hot on the college search trail with son Adam, a high school senior. They have been tour- ing schools in the Boston, Mass., area. While visiting Bentley College this past spring, Enid, husband Jeff, and Adam met up with Alison Wachtler Braunstein ’80 in Waltham for a brief get-together. On another trek to Beantown in August, Enid, Adam, and his brother Scott, a junior at Hobart, got together for dinner with Lisa Lavieri and her daughter Suzanne, a senior at UVM. Enid had a chance to catch up with Emily “Sissy” Murphy D’Andrea ’77 at Sissy’s home in Darien, Conn., in June. In March 2013, Jessica Crocker trav- elled to Sochi, Russia, as a volunteer for a pre-Olympic test event, a ski race held at Rosa Khutor. In May she met up with Susan Preble Sheldon in New Hampshire for a girls’ weekend in the mountains. Her family enjoyed a great summer of boating in the Beverly, Mass., seacoast area. Jessica’s older son is a senior at Beverly High School. Her younger son, a sophomore at St. John’s Prep in Danvers, skied in a national competition this win- ter. Both boys are busy in sports and band and having fun. Jessica looks for- ward to seeing everyone at Reunion! Laura Wood says music is working its


way to first place in her life. She per- formed at the Malibu Music Awards and Festival in Malibu, Calif., after playing for Malibu Unplugged in August 2013. Known on stage as LA Wood, Laura shared the stage with Brittany Cotto, the talented young director and owner of Pacific Coast Strings—“and we rocked.” Laura then headed for Florida to perform at the Key West Musician’s Festival, which benefits Sister Season, a charity that serves local residents employed in the tourist industry. The festival soundtrack is being produced as a live CD (visit www.keywestmusicianfestival.com for details). Laura will be recording at the Skip Saylor studio in California this year. Molly Arp Newell attended a mini- reunion with Jennifer Warner, Lisa Giordano Martel, and Lori Gedon at an Allman Brothers concert in Saratoga in August 2013. Molly and friends are vow-


ing to make Greg and his crew honorary Skiddies. “It was a blast.” She extends many thanks to Lori for hosting her and husband Mike, who traveled from Iowa, at Lori’s wonderful home in Porters Cor - ners, N.Y. A great time was had by all. Debra Barth-Plummer’s daughter, Christina-Marie, is a freshman at the College of St. Rose in Albany, N.Y. She is studying art. Jill Porvancher Rau had an adventurous summer, moving from Beverly Hills, Calif., to Ridgefield, Conn. She had long missed the change of seasons and always knew she would return to the Northeast one day. While still in California, Jill located a circa-1790 home on a real estate Web site, put in an offer that day, and flew to Con- necticut that week to see it. She is now settled on her new property, which she shares with two dogs and a horse. Her 23-year-old son graduated from the University of Edinburgh and is currently working in China. Jill looks forward to connecting with classmates in her area. Michele McLean got together with Leslie Bergman Savage and husband Bob while visiting the East Coast this summer. Michele says, “It was wonderful to recon- nect!”


Maura Connelly’s son Thor is working


in Charlotte, N.C.; middle daughter Maren is living in Seattle, Wash., and younger daughter Callie is a junior at the College of Charleston. She says all is well in Beaufort, S.C.


Nancy Stein Zelenetz keeps in touch


with Dale Genovese Fauser, who lives in North Salem, N.Y. Nancy lives in Scarsdale with husband Russell and has been a spe- cial-education teacher’s assistant in the fifth grade for the past 10 years. Their son, Josh, 23, works in the media industry in NYC. Daughter Carly, 20 (who looks just like Nancy!), is a junior at the University of Michigan studying art. Lisa Ochs Arnold is taking college tours


and watching son Rome play high school water polo (he is team goalie). He also sings in a male a cappella group, follow- ing in his Sonneteer mother’s footsteps. I had a wonderful bike trip in Provence, France, with side trips to Lyon, which I absolutely loved, and Geneva. I’m already working on next year’s trip! In the mean- time I’m rallying everyone to attend our 35th reunion. Make your plans to return to Saratoga May 29 to June 1, 2014. I hope to see you there! DEBBIE MONOSSON 16 PERRY ST.
