Sixty-eight years ago we had all met as freshmen. Are you saving the date and planning to attend our 65th reunion? Donna Fogle Fisher is staying well–just slowing down! “I am learning to say no to some activities.” Does that sound familiar to anyone? Mary Louise Hoffman Huff is still working out with a trainer two or three times a week and doing two cardio workouts alone. She has been enjoying learning the tricks of online trading and says, “life is good.” Betsy McCain McAlpine is staying busy even without being able to drive anymore. Their son and daughter-in-law visit from California and Lois Vars Mason will be joining Betsy to participate in the inaugural parade for Hood’s new President on October 17. Cathie Strachan Upp spent most of the summer in Scottsdale, Arizona helping her daughter who has been battling cancer. Cathie keeps in touch with Marilyn Smith Garrity and Sara Weaver Langie. Recent TV news and pictures from Cuba bring back memories of her trip with Sally to Cuba back in the 50′s and now it still looks the same. Mary Ellen Wood Tully has been rehabbing a stubborn knee replacement since last November giving her a total of three replaced joints, but she refuses to slow down. She has also had minor eye surgery. She entertains family and friends at her house in Cape May from June to November, which she calls her escape from apartment life in D.C. She missed the wedding of Phoebe Brown Ford‘s son Mike, who was married in Greenwich at Phoebe’s beautiful estate in August. Molly, as well as others, was sad to hear that Anita Cummings den Tex had passed away. Our condolences to her family. Eleanore Jackson Knott The Knott’s are still enjoying Hilton Head except in the summer when we travel north to New England. We make a couple of trips to Florida in the winter and hope to see many of you in June for our reunion. Meanwhile, I would love to get a call from any or all of you.
