Anne Beyrer’s daughter Lilly will graduate from the New School University this year. Last fall Lilly taught ESL/human rights to Burmese refugees in northern Thailand, where her uncle Chris Beyrer, an epidemiologist at Johns Hopkins, helped her locate a secret school. Now she feels compelled to teach history because of her experiences there. Anne moved to a cottage facing the Carman’s River wildlife sanctuary, the last wild place on Long Island. She has been teaching English literature to at-risk students in Central Islip for 15 years. She plans to make the trip to Saratoga Springs for our 30th!
In 2006 Patricia Haggerty DeCamp launched her own business designing and hand-fabricating sterling-silver jewelry. “I like to take a classic idea and give it an update,” she says. Her work is sold at Mimosa Gallery on Saratoga’s Beekman Street (the heart of the city’s new art district), the Albany (NY) Institute of Art and History, and the Charlestown Art Gallery in Rhode island. Pat’s collection can be seen at patdecampjewelry.com.
Michele Herman is a writer living in Greenwich Village, NY, with her husband and two teenaged sons. She teaches fiction online through the Writers Studio and is working on “a very slow-moving novel.” Her recent publications include essays in The Sun and the Sunday Styles section of the New York Times. Michele will be giving a reading at the Cornelia Street Cafe in Greenwich Village on May 5.
Two paintings from Jeri Waxenberg’s modernist art collection will be touring the country in an exhibition called Illumination: The Paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe, Agnes Pelton, Agnes Martin, and Florence Pierce. The two-year show will open at the Orange County Museum of Art in Newport Beach, CA, and include a stop at the Women’s Museum of Art in Washington, DC. Jeri, who lives in Sun Valley, ID, has started a healing practice using integrative and energy medicine.
Janet Cone has been running her own corporate event-planning business
(www.compassview.com) for more than 20 years. Although she has not been able to attend reunions because they fall on her children’s birthdays, she returned to campus this past summer to help out with planning for our 30th.
MaryLou Anderson Relle, Sadie Izard Pariseau, and Becky Maestri met for lunch in Georgetown recently and had fun catching up and laughing about good times at Skidmore. MaryLou’s daughter Margaret ’11 is studying biology and chemistry at Skidmore. She plays polo on the Skidmore team and enjoys skiing on the weekends, taking full advantage of all that wonderful snow! MaryLou loves being able to visit her and hang out in Saratoga. “Thirty years have gone by (too quickly!), but it still feels like home.” She thinks the new dining hall is amazing and recently viewed work being done on the new Zankel Music Building, which she says looks great and blends nicely with existing campus buildings. She wants to inform Professor Richard Linke’s former photography students that he is retiring at the end of this year. “For me, Skidmore and Linke are synonymous,” she says. “Things may change at Skidmore, but good memories last a lifetime.”
Hope to see you all at Reunion.
