Mary Badger Jessup enjoyed the summer with guests, family, and friends. She still teaches piano and sings in chorale. She enjoys reading about Skidmore today.
Libby Cone Gardner enjoyed a week in Maine and several art shows this past fall. She and Clint are living at their “Kendal digs” in Hanover, NH, until May 1. The couple had visits from a nephew and family from Utah, a granddaughter and her son from North Carolina, and cousins who traveled from Maryland.
Peg Fiero Stone is not playing much golf anymore but still takes an aerobics class, swims laps three or four times a week, and walks a lot. She and Chip have two dogs that keep them busy.
Genevieve Gerard Conroy is happy to report that she and husband Dick have moved into their “first-floor casa” at White Sands of La Jolla, CA.
Ginny Gray McNear became a great-grandmother last March. She reprised this role in August with the arrival of an adopted great-granddaughter. Ginny spends about three hours every school day as a classroom reading specialist. With 21 kids, including eight who choose not to cooperate, she says, “Good luck to ‘No Child Left Behind.’”
Betty Hathaway Macomber is still living in Delmar, NY, coping with all the problems of keeping up a house. She keeps busy volunteering at her church thrift shop, playing bridge, taking aerobics, gardening, and visiting children who live in Wisconsin, Potomac, MD, and Fairport, NY. She insists, “Those four years at Skidmore were among the best!”
Doris Merz Wyckoff last reported all was well in Florida: “Not one hurricane yet!” She had a wonderful time at a granddaughter’s wedding in Old Saybrook Point, CT, in July.
Alice Mungall Porter says it is always fun to read about the class in Scope. She and her husband plan to move to a retirement place in Corpus Christi, TX, where they have quite a few friends. They’ve only been in their current home since March 2006, and Kit dreads another move. One of their grandsons practices law in NYC and lives in Brooklyn, where Kit’s brothers, mother, and grandfather were all born. Kit also has a great-granddaughter, who is “a darling.”
Dorothy Sielaff Armstrong celebrated her 84th birthday in September with a “very exciting” 30-mile ride on a Harley Davidson—as a passenger, not the driver. She is currently researching hot-air ballooning and asks, “Isn’t it wonderful to be old and healthy?”
Patsy Wander Royer stays busy enjoy-ing activities and friendships. Although it’s tough to keep up with children and friends, she manages, saying, “Time is slipping by so fast.”
This past fall Jane Zirinsky Haskell and Rosalie Seh Samson took a trip to Muenster, Germany, and Venice, Italy, where they saw two major contemporary art exhibitions: Projeckte in Muenster, and the Venice Biennale.
