I asked you to write one sentence about the event with the most impact in your life over the last year. For me, it was attending Charlie Bassett’s memorial service in Lorimer Chapel at our 30th reunion. * For Paula Hinckley, the capture of Osama bin Laden. * For Mary Coe Connolly, meeting up with Sandy Maisel after 30 years at his son Josh (we remember when he was knee-high!) and daughter-in-law’s house in San Jose. Even better was the birth of her first grandson, Mitchell Joseph Connolly, in April. “He is the most beautiful grandson ever, and I am super lucky that he (and his parents) live 10 minutes away from us.” * For Christian Melby, “Bringing our daughter Lily to London and Paris for her first trip to Europe.” * For Phil Hough the worst was losing their beloved family cat, Ace, but the best was looking for wolverine, fisher, marten, and lynx all winter as part of the Idaho/Montana Scotchman Peaks Rare Forest Carnivore Study. * For Kim Hokanson, being promoted to director of individual giving programs after two years of running Wellesley’s annual giving office. * For Dani Nemec Micsan, daughter Julia moved to L.A. “just because.” (Guess who’s paying the bills?) * For Pam Ellis, the amazing experience of watching her son “light up the stage” at Downtown Disney in Orlando with his a cappella group, the Mt. Blue Voices, in front of more than 1,000 people. * For Ken Bruder, meeting with President Obama at the Rubin Museum in N.Y.C. in May to discuss marriage equality, and also with Ricky Martin, who is “larger and much more sedate in person than on TV.” * For class president Beth Pniewski Wilson, celebrating her 25th anniversary working for Thomson Reuters Westlaw and realizing she is “old enough to have worked at one place for that long!” * For Christine Ahlstrom Russian, attending the summer 2011 wedding of Sue Horwitz Kerr Miller ’80, which took place on a tennis court, since she met her future husband playing tennis! Christine said musicians including herself, Dana ’79 and, Marty MacMillin, and Liz Yanagihara Horwitz ’80 played the theme from Wimbledon for the processional—a complete surprise. “Everyone started cracking up when we played it. We used it for the recessional as well. Sue’s two sons walked her down the aisle. It was nice, as both bride and groom were widowed, so it was a happy ending for both.” Indeed… game, set, music, and match!
