How great to have all these people signed onto our site (thank you, Elinor!!).  Please encourage classmates to join the party. It is a great way to keep up with each other!  laugh

Hi All: I just posted the season finale edition of my Middlebury BBall Blog at ''. If you are just returned from a tour of the outer planets or otherwise want to catch up with the BBall scene, it should do the trick. Hope that you get a chance to enjoy it, and would appreciate any comments that you have. Be well. Clubbo.

Alas - it didn't work...



Thanks, Clubbo - I'm on my way to read it!!

Are you misleading us Clubbo?  Trying to get us to solve a mystery?  About Midd BBall??

A fascinating and very moving story in the current Middlebury Magazine about Kelly Brush '08, daughter of our classmate Charlie Brush.  The story will bring tears to your eyes and a smile to your face.

And moving news from Lee as well.  A few months after I joined the grandparents' group (twins in London), Lee became what Anne and I believe is '69's first great-grandfather. And that's how definitions of "generation" change.

What a beautiful article about Kelly and all the family, especially today on the anniversary of that life changing moment. It reminds us all to be grateful for what we have rather than lamenting what we don't.  And reconfims that what could not kill you will only make you stronger. 

Godspeed, Kelly and Zeke.

We are planning our 2nd annual gathering of the women in our class!  About 15 of us gathered last fall and had a truly wonderful time.  We are all looking forward to next September (probably the weekend of the 16th, possibly the weekend of the 9th, depending on how many can come on which weekend!!) and are hoping more women will join us.  The place is Brooksville, ME - a beautiful spot on the water with lots of room.  The downside is that it is pretty far away, although certainly worth the trip!  Please let me know if you are at all interested in coming, and/or have any questions, and spread the word to all the women who might not have signed up on this forum (and get them to sign up too!!).  Looking forward to hearing from you!!

Mary:    So '60's. Still keeping the College Street separation intact?

Virginia Hopper (Hoverman)

Thanks for your post, Mary. We had a great time last year and hope many women of '69 will join us this September!

Constance Coffin (Carter)

Thanks for the post and the host, Mary!  Wonderful time last year -- with a lot of stories, new connections, memories shard and created!  I hope more of you can join us this year!

Mary MacArthur (Wendell)

but Peter, I'm from the 60's and in my 60's so what did you expect?  You boys can have your own gathering, if you'd like!!   :-)

Elinor Livingston (Redmond)

I agree, Mary!  The men can gather as they will.  We women share a special bond.

Gentlemen- or should I say former denizens from the south side of College Street - now that we've grown into our big boy pants, we can have our own get together(s). A bunch of my high school guys do one every two years - because 'ya never know'. What we need is fan interest, and a place and time. I'd start with the suggestion that we keep it simple, that it's not camping (like with tents), and we make sure Charley (or Chuck) Perry is in because he is the director of the music. Then we build from there. If I still had the Rochester (VT) house, I'd suggest that- unfortunately I don't. Anyone else interested? Be well. Clubbo.

I will be traveling in Italy that weekend.  But I would look forward to next year's gathering.  Please keep me on the list. Thanks.

Louise,  Thrilled you're interested in coming - I'll add your name to the list. Sorry you can't join us this year, but going to Italy sounds like a pretty good alternative!!  And you should know that Jill Woodman Sisson can't come this year, because she too will be in Italy.  Wouldn't it be fun if you two could see each other over there?  Have a great trip!  Best - mary

Nancy Robinson (Russell)

I, too, will be out of the country.  I'm sorry I'll miss the get-together.  If you would like to gather in South Carolina at some point, I could work on it! I'm less than a mile from the ocean as the crow flies and have access to my sister's house as well for beds.  Have fun!

07/29/16 01:06 PM #22    

Mary MacArthur (Wendell)

And we will miss you Nancy.  YIkes, with all of these people going abroad, maybe we should think about having this event across the pond!!  And thank you for your very kind offer, Nancy - be careful what you wish for!!  Best- Mary

Jackie Ogden (English)

Mary, you are wonderful to host this gathering, as was Connie last year.  I so wish I could make it!  Dick and I will be in Glasgow, (Montana!) on our anual trek there and up into Saskatchewan with our dogs for bird hunting.  I do not hunt, just go along for the ride and the scenery.  

Should be wonderful in Maine after such a hot summer.  And I would love to see everyone.  Have a great time!

Hi, Mary,

It sounds wonderful, but unfortunately I won't be able to attend this year. Perhaps at another time. Hope everybody has a great time!

Jackie -

Sounds as if you might be away every fall :-(.  We will miss you, but have a great time!  and I'll add you to the list, so you'll be up-to-date on our correspondences!!

Thanks for responding - sorry you can't come this year, but we'll add your name to the list with hope for next time!
