Ronnie Brody Raab and Ed had a fantastic trip to India in December, spending a week in Mumbai attending a Muslim wedding, a Hindi wedding reception for 1,000, and, of course, a Bollywood movie. Ed was doing another medical mission for ORBIS, a not-for-profit organization that brings eye care to third-world countries; afterward they toured the UNESCO Heritage side of Allora and Ajanta, caves that date back to 200 BC. Summer is awaited with great joy since they purchased their Maine house on Deer Isle, just down the road from Ruthann Jacobs Clark. “It is good to reconnect with her and Chip.”
Dianne Davis Nelson visited her three kids in Houston over Christmas. Son Tom opened his own business, Noble Retirement Group, which has gained national recognition. Son Mark joined the company last summer. He recently had surgery to fuse vertebrae in his neck. Mark’s 12-year-old daughter was selected to the pre-Olympic training program in soccer. Daughter Judy, who has an MS degree, has her own business as a consultant to architects. Daughter Kathy lives in Glens Falls, NY, where she is a middle-school counselor; her daughter is a high-school senior. Diane and Jim continue to lead a very busy life in Savannah Lakes Village in McCormick, SC, where they enjoy golf, cards, boating, and travel.
Glenna Green Citrin and Hal celebrated their 50th anniversary with their family of 17 at the Four Seasons at Great Exuma Island in the Bahamas over Thanksgiving. “It was a great surprise for Hal and me.”
Nancy Morrison spent almost three weeks in Europe with a widow friend in October. They went on a 12-day riverboat cruise down the Rhine from Basel, Switzerland, to Antwerp, Belgium, followed by three days in Brussels. They also spent a couple of days in Basel prior to the cruise. The trip (their fifth together) was a lot of fun; they saw cathedrals and medieval cities and toured a wonderful old castle.
Connie Swedlin Sultan talked with Ethel Binner Caravias and Gloria Atanas Plaut. Gloria’s son Chris and Connie’s son David are graduates of the Collegiate School in New York, and now their grandsons are first-graders at Collegiate.
Chuck and I traveled to New England in October and had a great time in Cape Cod, New Hampshire, and Maine. We visited BA Kalteux Callanan and John in Hampton. Then the four of us met Sue Hamilton MacCachran in Kennebunkport for lunch at the Arundel Pier; it was really great, just like 50 years ago. Chuck and I then had lunch with Phyl Bartlett Towle in Littleton, NH; Phyl is busy with her son and daughter, and baby-sitting grandchildren.
