We had a wonderful 55threunion in June, thanks to my fellow reunion committee members Jack Pallotta, Keet Arnett, and Ed Tomey. Ed organized a moving memorial service by Johnson Pond for our deceased classmates. Approximately 45 classmates attended reunion, and we had a great time reminiscing at meals, attending lectures, and enjoying the campus, especially the new addition to the museum of art. * Robert Nielsen had a total knee replacement in February and hoped to play golf in May. Last fall he had a hole-in-one before the season ended, and one week later while in Virginia visiting his daughter he was unable to safely walk. * Reed Thompson was sorry to miss the 55th. After the wonderful time everyone had at the 50th he made a mental note to come back for the 55th, but family stuff got in the way. Maybe he’ll be back for the 60th—“assuming [he’s] still on the right side of the grass!” He is still going to the office (as opposed to “working”). His almost 50-year marriage with wife Solange would probably end if she were to wake up on a weekday and find him still at home. They travel (Venice and a cruise down the Adriatic to Sarajevo in September), and of course they spend as much time as they are allowed with their grandchildren. Their annual New York City trip will happen in late October. * In August Pat Richmond Stull and Jack Pallotta entertained ’59 classmates on Beech Mountain, located in the northwestern corner of North Carolina. Jocelyn and Tom “Toad” Connors and David and Jane Mills Conlan joined them for dinner. With three DKEs (David is a Dartmouth DKE) and two Sigma Kappas, much world-problem-solving conversation took place along with a great deal of reminiscing. * Many at the reunion said they would send me news. I look forward to hearing from you and others when I send out my next request.
