I completed a 100-km walk on the Camino de Santiago in Spain a week before Reunion. It was a physical chal- lenge; some days we hiked over 15 miles! Galicia is a lovely area that is lush and green in the spring, and Santiago is an inspiring city. I traveled with four close friends and was deeply moved by the spir- it of community I discovered among the Camino pilgrims we encountered. It was a long-anticipated personal milestone for me, and I was proud of the accomplish- ment. I hope to return to Spain to com- plete the entire Camino in the near future. To those who could not be with us at Reunion, put our 50th (can that be true?) on your radar right now. MARY HARDMAN LAPORTE 143 FERN ST. HARTFORD, CT 06105-2248 860-236-0742 CBANDCO2@AOL.COM

I’ve begun a two-year term as president of the Syracuse Sounds of Music Association (formerly the Syracuse Symphony Association). I was vice-presi- dent for the past two years, which is always good practice! The association is over 50 years old and supports such groups as the Syracuse Opera, Society for New Music, Signature Syracuse, and Syracuse Youth Orchestra, including giv- ing two scholarships to high school sen- iors pursuing music careers. I have a sec- ond grandson (my fourth grandchild) and am wondering how “grandma’s little house” can possibly expand to fit more children! But of course it will, as my heart already has.
