Marguerite Andre Ambrose took a 12-day trip to Chile, which she highly recommends. She says the Lake District of Chile and Argentina has spectacular vistas, friendly people, and a fascinating history.

Liese Greenhut Sturtz is delighted that Skidmore is being recognized for its great academics and first-rate faculty. She found the new campus beautiful, even during a rainy Reunion last spring. “It was wonderful to see so many classmates enjoy each other’s company and feel that wonderful bond formed so long ago! Many thanks to all involved with the planning.”

Diane Duval Baldwin, who raised a family of eight, has retired from the Saratoga YMCA after 28 years working in child care. She is now at home caring for grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Marilyn Moore Bradley and her husband celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with a cruise with their children and their spouses. They decided to leave the grandkids at home, giving everyone a break from soccer practice, play dates, and lessons.

Nancy Krom Nicholas was sorry to have missed Reunion. She was on a 34-day cruise along the coast of Europe to the North Cape of Norway and back to Amsterdam. Daughter Kristin is a knitwear designer who published a book called Colorful Stitchery.

Mary Haas Spotts enjoyed a visit from former roommate Carolyn Blau Cardle following a cruise to Nova Scotia. Mary and husband Jim celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in January.
