Evie Helfant Malkin wrote an informative letter. “I retired in January 2011 and wonder how I managed to work three days a week for some 30 years as an oncology social worker in pediatric radiation at Mass General Hospital. Because I am so busy now. I’ve been in Cambridge now for some five years, between Harvard Square and Central Square. I volunteer at Christopher’s Haven, a series of seven apartments next to Mass General that provides apartments for families whose children are having proton therapy. I attend a monthly book group. I do yoga. I’m scanning family photos to ultimately put on CDs for my ‘children.’ I get to our place in Vermont monthly. Sadly but realistically the land and house are on the market. The narrow, winding mountain road, the bringing in wood to keep the stove going, the draining of pipes through the winter months are getting a bit much. I see family as often as possible. I’ve just returned from Washington, D.C., visiting a daughter and a great-granddaughter now 1 1/2 years old and named Syd after my husband. In fact I now have five great-grandchildren, the youngest born three months ago. It’s hard to believe how long I’ve lived! I’ve signed up with Elder Hostel/Road Scholar to go to Turkey in April. I’m in touch with Harriet Glashow Singer ’46 (married to Bob Singer ’46).” * Janet Gay Hawkins wrote that life at Peconic Landing is good. “I made the right choice to move here and my kids are also pleased. Presently I chair the Peconic Landing Community Fund, which raises funds to support such in-house activities as the season series of the Metropolitan Opera on HDTV, a ballet series—also in the big screen—and various improvements in the community to benefit the residents. It’s one way to get to know the residents! In February I’ll cruise to some of the Central American countries that I have never been to! Thank you Dorothy and David for soldiering on despite the thinning ranks!” * George ’50 and Harriet Sargent Wiswell’s grandson Tim ’01 and his wife, Natasha, had their first child, Theo. “It’s hard to believe that we have become great-grandparents. We are planning a trip south in mid-March. We will take the car train from Virginia overnight to central Florida. Then we plan a leisurely trip so as to circumnavigate south Florida, seeing friends at various places, and then proceed up the East Coast with some time in both Charleston and Mt. Vernon.” * Howell Clement responded from Kalispell, Mont., to our request for news with a weather and local economic report. “We are having an unusual winter. For instance snow to date is 14.8 inches while normal snowfall is 48.1 inches. Now how this will translate as far as fire danger is concerned we don’t know, however, last year we had about 15 inches of rain in May. Here in Montana our unemployment is starting to edge down as more of our people are heading to North Dakota for work in the Bakken oil fields. The only problem at Bakken is the area was not ready for the influx of people and housing is scarce. Of course our people who need work also want the Keystone pipeline.” * We recently had dinner with Carol Silverstein Stoll Baker and Frannie Hyde Stephan. Also we see Bob Sage ’49 and his wife, Phyllis, and Allan Landau ’55 and his wife, Paula, here in Florida. Our grandson Mark McNulty ’11 lives in Austin, Texas, and works for Governor Rick Perry. Our granddaughter, Jessica McNulty ’07, is in training for her second Boston Marathon and is running for Dana-Farber. Our daughter Deborah Marson ’75 is their mother. Our other grandson, Sam Moller, will graduate from Needham, Mass., high school this spring and has been accepted at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pa. He’s following in the footsteps of our other daughter, Marsha Moller, Lehigh ’78, who preferred Pennsylvania to Maine.
