PRESIDENT'S LETTER October 2014
I am elated to report that our reunion team has hit the ground running: Janet Sommers Isenberg (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Pat McLaughlin Cavanaugh (email@example.com), Renuion Co-Chairs, are enthusiastically planning our 60th Reunion for June 2016. They welcome hearing from you with suggestions for the big event. Jane Nieuwenhuis Baker (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Nancy TenBroeck (email@example.com), Co-Editors of the Record Book, invite artistic classmates to submit art/design suggestions to them by December 31 for the Record Book. Two Janes, as in Kentnor Dean (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Power Mykrantz (email@example.com), Co-Chairs of Special Gifts, will be working with Mitzi Drucker Jonas* and Betsy Cassel Stern*, '56 Wellesley Fund Co-Chairs, and the Resource Office to advise about and implement our 60th Reunion contribution goals.
To reinforce enthusiasm for our 60th, Barb Booth Moses* Class VP is recruiting classmates to host more mini-reunions around the country this year and next. The various minis have been a delightful way to encourage and retain connections among us. Hosting one can be as simple or elaborate as one chooses and it's a wonderful way to reconnect with classmates. So don't delay, contact Barb today to be a hostess.
Ellie Roos Faber*, Class Secretary, is eager to hear from you with news of your activities for our Class Notes in the Wellesley Magazine. All you need to do is email Ellie with your news. It's much faster than a postcard!
Toni Holland Liebman*, Web Manager, also wants your news. This is the place to brag about yours and your children's accomplishements: books authored, awards won, presentations given, art exhibits, etc etc. Let's do it up red and send them both information about all our activities. Toni can use photos, especially from the minis.
Connections '56 provides classmates who are members with the opportunity to discuss issues with one another. Contact Mimi Gorn Tausner* to join and suggest a new topic for discussion.
Here's one that is particularly current: What Does it Mean to be a Woman's College Today? As a premier woman's college, what better place than Wellesley to explore this question. We can be assured that the Wellesley community --including alums such as we--will approach this matter thoughtfully and thoroughly.
Best wishes for the season.
1956 Wellesley RAH.
P.S. please make certain the Wellesley College Alumnae Office has your current address, both surface and e-mail.
