Jack and Lisa Mathey Landry were sorry to have missed our 35th reunion, but they had an excellent excuse. Their son Nate and his fiancée, Meredith, had a baby girl, Simone-Elise, April 2. They are awesome, happy, grateful grandparents! Their travels took them to California, where Nate and Mere are Ph.D. candidates at Stanford and living in Oakland. A very exciting time, full of good things. Their younger son, Devin, lives in Missoula, Mont., and is pursuing his third bachelor’s degree—this one in biology (to go with the double he attained in English and religion at Skidmore) with the goal of graduate study in animal behavior. He is at home out West, working in the field, riding horses, looking ahead. Jack continues lawyering for the Orient-Express Hotels, and Lisa is very involved in their community in Yonkers, doing lots of volunteer work in a number of different areas. * Gary Winer and wife Donna (Gary notes, “Bowdoin ’78”—ew!) are giving up the desert and mountains of Denver to return to the forests and mountains of Seattle. They may join the ranks of the “empty-nest society,” but a final decision has not been made. They hope to spend time in Europe visiting two of their four daughters. Their daughter Jennifer will teach English in Spain after graduating from the University of Oregon, and Alexandra will take her junior year abroad from Franklin & Marshall in London at Laban Dance Conservatory. Marci is completing her M.S. in nutrition at Colorado State University, and Gavrielle may take a gap year after graduating from high school or join Alexandra at Franklin & Marshall. It changes every hour on the hour! * Lea Jackson Morrissey reports that there was a good turnout at reunion, including a few new faces. The weather did not stop anyone, including Sandy Buck, from an impromptu afternoon of tennis on Saturday. At the Bicentennial Bash Jim Cook did a great job setting up a 1978 dorm room, which included a record player, records, assorted beer cans, and a dictionary. He also organized the class dinner, where we were joined by Sandy Maisel and his wife, Patrice Franko, and also by Janice Seitzinger Kassman. Thanks to Jim for his years as our class president—Pam Cleaves Devine will take over as class president for the next five years. The weekend flew by and it was terrific to catch up with so many people, including Nancy Piccin. Speaking of Nancy, she has graciously agreed to take over as class correspondent. Thank you, Nancy! We have enjoyed our years as your class scribes and thank you all for being so generous with your news. You’ve made our job easy! * We have finished our column on a sad note too many times over the past year, and this column is no exception. We have lost far too many classmates, and news of Jim Scott’s death hit us hard. Jim died in March in Cambridge, Mass., where he was residing. The class sends its condolences to his friends and family. At the Boardman Memorial Service Sunday morning during reunion, a few classmates lit candles in Jim’s memory, and a moment of silence was observed for our classmates and other alumni who have passed away. * Hope everyone has a happy, healthy summer. Please keep sending your news. We know Nancy will do a great job!
