Julie Sparks Parmegiani, Lenore Bethka Wersten, and Ellen Judge Swanson had a conference call in July regarding our 45th reunion. While classmates returned to Saratoga Springs for Reunion, illness kept me from traveling.

Beth Ellis Poulo is now a grandmother: son David and daughter-in-law Loren welcomed baby Ruby in April. They live in the next town, so Beth and Lou babysit often. Daughter Rebecca and Beth’s 97-year-old mother-in-law also live nearby. Beth is still working in real estate in Andover and doing well.
I went to Yosemite National Park in June; to Melbourne, Australia, in August to meet my sixth grandchild, Zoe; to Pittsburgh in September for my brother-in-law’s funeral; and to Warrensville, OH, in October to do a seminar for a 10-person law firm. My business now includes writing newsletters, blog material, critiques of Web sites, and training as well as consulting on workers’ compensation for federal employees.
