Club connection: Seattle, Wash.


More than 30 alumni
and parents, plus spouses and guests, got together in Seattle to enjoy a special visita, a little conversazione, and a spuntino (snack) at the Macrina Bakery and Café. Co-owner Matt Galvin ’91 led a tour of the new, environmentally sound facility, which has been certified by the US Green Building Council.

Seattle club leader Erina Malarkey ’05 was pleased to see such a wide range of alumni, from 2008 to 1949, “many of whom were attending a Skidmore event for the first time.” Mary Ayres ’71 says the food was “lovely” and she enjoyed “overhearing young people talking about places that I remembered from my time in Saratoga.”

The guests were treated to samples of Macrina’s breads, pizza bianca, and pastries, as well as imported meats, cheeses, and wines. Galvin spoke about the bakery and his other Seattle-area businesses, Pagliacci Pizza and DeLaurenti Specialty Food and Wine. Molto delizioso! —PD
