After two knee operations, “Kit” Carson Anderson spent 14 weeks at home last winter with her left leg immobilized in a brace so that a ripped kneecap tendon could heal. She read lots of books the library sent over and watched her wonderful neighbors shovel snow. She attends physical therapy that will soon allow her to get around without a walker. She sends greetings to all from the High Plains.

Suzanne Menzel Linderman Snyder traveled to Alaska and Seattle and also attended the wedding of husband Bryan’s granddaughter last year.

Patricia Roach Maley and her husband of almost 10 years, Richard, enjoyed a Caribbean cruise this year. Over the winters, they plan events for their senior group, dance regularly, bowl in a seniors league, and this year were winners in their bocce league. Pat also plays golf twice a week. They both celebrated their big 80 this year and are thankful they can be so active.

June Baker Brewer is looking forward to our 60th reunion in 2008. She still plays golf, helps raise money for Save the Children, and, happily, is very healthy.

Katherine Hoopes Schmidt’s husband, George, writes, “KT is not too active these days, but sends love to all of you.”

Mary Ellen Tompson is hoping to make it to our 60th. She fondly recalls living in the old mansions on Union Avenue and can’t believe so much time has elapsed.

Nedda Samuels Stuart enjoyed a trip to Hawaii with her kids. She is teaching a watercolor class to seniors, who, after three years of instruction, are “really great.”

Phyllis Magill Levy has had an exciting year. She took a four-week trip to Italy with the family of her deceased sweetheart and then enjoyed another Elderhostel in Siena with a dear gal-pal. “La dolce vita!”

Sally Krueger, who lives in a senior residence outside Chicago, would like to attend alumni gatherings in the area. She encourages anyone in or near the Northbrook area to phone her at 847-803-7797.

Joan Kirwan Schroeder and Aggie Miller Smith visited Jessica Waldron Spacil in Seattle, WA, last spring.

Yvonne Scott Waples was on board the MV Explorer this spring as a senior adult participant of the Semester at Sea continuing-ed program, based in Charlottesville, VA. Yvonne followed in the footsteps of grandchildren Katie and Andrew, who made Semester at Sea trips around the world during college and decided their “grand” should do the same! Her voyage around the world, along with 700 college students and 17 other lifelong learners, began in February and ended in May.
