now a freshman at Skidmore. Carter thinks it’s great to have a second-genera- tion Skiddie in the family (or Skid Kid, as her generation seems to prefer). Carter teaches history at Ramapo College of New Jersey.


Susanne Littleton Fournier loved Reunion, both for reconnecting with friends and also for acquainting herself with people she didn’t know so well in college. The smell of Case Center, the sound of laughter on the green at night, and the sights of downtown all came flooding back. The experience, she’s says, “invigorated my senses.” She got together with Kim Greene ’80 for a few days while en route from Colorado. Susanne’s daugh- ter Laura graduated from high school and is working to save money for a trip to Ghana before college; daughter Maria is a junior at Colby-Sawyer, majoring in early- childhood education; and son Will is a junior in high school who entered this summer’s America’s Youth on Parade baton-twirling competition at Notre Dame University (he juggles three to five batons at a time!). Jessica Crocker and her Moore Hall roommate Susan Preble Sheldon had a great time at Reunion. Jessica says, “It was a blast! Saratoga looked sparkling, and there was a great group of people from the Class of ’79. It was nice to catch up with them.” She urges anyone who hasn’t been to Reunion to attend our 40th. Jessica and husband Paul, son Ryan, and sister Francine Crocker ’86 traveled to Valmalenco, Italy, in April to cheer on son Michael in the Junior World Championships in ski cross. Mike, 16, did a great job as one of the youngest athletes competing against elite ski-cross racers ages 16 to 20 from around the world. In June he attended Project Gold, a US Ski Team junior-development camp at Mt. Hood in Oregon. For Easter, Jessica and Ryan went to Italy to visit Rome, Florence, and the Republic of San Marino. Ryan graduated from Beverly High School and is now a freshman at Suffolk University in Boston. Robin Safeer Mathews’ oldest daughter, Hannah, graduated from Boston University with a master’s in gastronomy. Robin and her extended family enjoyed a celebratory weekend in Boston, where Hannah landed a job in sales and market- ing for an established food purveyor. Daughter Kyla is engaged with wedding plans for 2015; with a graduate degree in dance movement therapy, she is in job- search mode after moving to North Carolina. Youngest daughter, Shea, is a


certified chef completing a bachelor’s in nutrition at Johnson and Wales. Robin is having a blast singing in a semiprofes- sional a cappella quintet, Key of She. Glenn Berger reports that Reunion was fun and it was great to see everyone. He’s a proud dad, both of whose daughters graduated this spring, one from college and the other from high school. Lisa Lavieri’s daughter, Suzanne, gradu- ated from University of Vermont magna cum laude with a degree in medical labo- ratory science and a biology minor. She spent the summer studying for the MCATs and submitting med-school appli- cations. Lisa’s son, Christopher, complet- ed 10th grade, loves being on the school sailing team, and spent the summer sail- ing, getting his driver’s license, and begin- ning the college search process. Lisa had a great time seeing everyone at Reunion and says we need to get together more often than just every five years. Meltem Tekeli Ozpay loved catching up with classmates at Reunion: “Thanks to everyone for a wonderful time and some very fond memories.” Judith Rubin Friedman and hubby Mitchell spent lots of time with Gail Capobianco and her hubby, John Michael, at Reunion. As always, the Friedmans visited Bailey’s for fondue. Judith exhibited in the alumni art show for the first time and said it was a won- derful experience. Her daughter, Taylor, graduated from Northwestern and now works for Deloitte; son Douglas married his college sweetheart in July. Kathy Melén Lawton and Michele


Herman came to Reunion with Jennifer Harwood Petersen ’80. They enjoyed see- ing old friends at the campus barbecue, parade of classes, breakfasts, and cocktail party at Gaffney’s. They shopped in town (there are many more stores now than just Mr. Jack’s and Mabou), and took the bus tour of Saratoga and the old campus. They also had delicious dinners at two favorite restaurants from our graduation and Happy Pappy weekends: the Wishing Well and Sperry’s. Kathy’s son and youngest child, Christopher ’14, lives in Berkeley, Calif., and works in San Francisco; daughter Emily lives and works in Washington, D.C.; daughter Skyler lives and works in Philadelphia. Lisa Ochs Arnold’s son, Rome, graduat- ed from Andover and is studying at Penn State.


Linda Winnard’s daughter, MacKenzie, is a freshman at Washington University. Laura Kramer is delighted to report that, after more than 31 years together,


she and Deborrah Markette were married last October in New Jersey. Laura observes, “So much has changed these past 31 years, we have whiplash.” It was great to see friends old and new at Reunion. Saratoga is so vibrant now and the campus is beautiful. We “OC’ers” still go and look at the Pink Palace a little wistfully. Although T&L is just one room these days and nowhere near the packed bar it used to be, it still holds a fond place in our hearts. I had dinner at Hattie’s with Martha Van Gelder, Maura Connelly, Lisa Ochs, Sue Preble, and Jessica Crocker. And since we were the “Harold J’s” gener- ation, we were the last ones at the dance party along with the Class of 2009! DEBBIE MONOSSON 16 PERRY STREET CAMBRIDGE, MA 02139-3912 DEBBIE@BFEC.COM


’80


I received news from Linda


Cooke Ashley and Wendy “Detta” Collins Gutfarb about the Class of ’80 “six pack” that meets in Saratoga every year.


N MAY 28–31


In addition to Cookie and Detta, the pack includes Elizabeth “Star” Martin Gross, Alyssa “Crisco” Oxley, Jane “Fits” Bennett Low, and Collette “Reefers” Reifers Huidekoper. One of their goals has been to attend the senior art show at the Tang, which they accomplished this year. They also watched a horse show, checked out a new racing foal, and had a great time in Saratoga.


After 30 years of raising kids and pursu- ing careers, Jennifer Cox Torey and hus- band Don have moved from their family home in Darien, Conn., to a quaint sea- side cottage in Rowayton. They spend summers at a new beach home in Nantucket, Mass., and when the cold sets in, they head south to their favorite fish- ing and boating destination, Admirals Cove in Jupiter, Fla. They welcome all friends and family to stop by and visit any time.


Barbara Sabia can’t believe she is old enough to have a married child, but son Brenton was married on Martha’s Vineyard on August 23. CEO of the Executive Women’s Golf Association Pamela Richardson Swensen was recognized by the International Network of Golf in the business-achieve- ment category for her work growing the game of golf for women. She also con- tributed to the EWGA Foundation’s book
