A Christmas card showed Anne Joyce Wyman standing, along with a message that she has improved considerably after her stroke. She and Joseph travel back and forth from their home in Quogue to their home in NYC.

Anne “Kim” Green Stone and John are still involved with raising horses. This year they took an Alaskan cruise.

My lunches with Patti Tighe Walden and Jeanne Duff continue. Unfortunately just before Thanksgiving Patti had a bad fall and missed our Nov. lunch. She recovered sufficiently after hospitalization and rehab to go on a family cruise to Nassau, Bahamas. Since retiring from teaching four years ago, Jeanne has been active as a member and officer of Community Without Walls, an organization which plans programs and activities for seniors to keep active and connected. Katzy Bailey Nager and Chuck have continued with their book distribution program at a local Title I elementary school.

Carolyn Smith retired as a librarian after 30 years of service at Johns Hopkins U., specializing in special collections. Following graduation from SBC, she earned an MA degree from Johns Hopkins and an MS degree from Columbia. She’s still writing for literary publications.

Ginger Timmons Ludwick has never retired. She lists her occupation as “Assistant to my Pasadena Congressman.”

The following news was compiled from the reunion questionnaires. It was good to hear from classmates who were unable to attend the 60th. Joan McCoy Dean: “despite a fall in Chile in ’99 which limits me, I still write and photograph and get published here and there.” Over the years she has visited 56 countries and 42 states.

Midge Chace Powell still works. She has spent 27 years in the real estate business, having obtained a broker’s license along the way. She is more than just a traveler, having climbed 15 to 20 mountains, including Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Betty Moore Baker served on her Township Planning Board for over 20 years. She was the first woman member and helped write the first comprehensive plan for her growing community. In recent years she has taken 10 trips sponsored by the American Museum of Natural History (NYC), one of which took her to the North Pole. …to be continued
