Latest News

Hold onto your red beanies, we have great news!

WELLESLEY will hold an on-campus reunion this year and The Class of 1960 has official permission to march in the parade (Or cheer from the sidelines, if that works better for you.)

SUNDAY, JUNE 5, 2022 

CLASS OF 1960 MICRO-MINI 

To be followed by a Class Lunch—possibly a box lunch on campus. Class officers will be meeting  that weekend, so there may be a dinner somewhere Saturday night. TBD

Class VP’s Liz Karet and Peggy Cohn will be chairing the planning committee and they need a  rough idea of attendance. Please email Peggy peggycohn38@gmail.com asap and let her know:
 

  1. Yes, I’d love to join in the parade and picnic if I can.
  2. I will be looking for overnight accommodation. OR
  3. I have local accommodation.
     

Of course, everything depends on COVID remaining in remission, so cross your fingers and toes,  wear all your lucky charms and stay tuned for more information.

CLASS OFFICERS MEETING
Your class officers gathered virtually on February 3rd.  Planning for 2022 was necessarily tentative while Covid lurks. Zoom chats by dorm groups and by our long-ago majors seem to be the best immediate options. If you would like to be involved in furthering one of these gatherings please contact Peggy Cohn peggycohn38@gmail.com or Liz Karet elizabethkaret@aol.com

We paused to remember our Chair of Planned Giving, Mary Ascot, who gave generously to Wellesley of her time and treasure.  Following severe pneumonia, Mary died on January 27.

Dobree Adams and Susan Auchincloss put tremendous effort into our beautiful class memorial service last June.  Fortunately, we have not lost many classmates since then.  It was decided that we would tentatively schedule a virtual combined class meeting and memorial service in June of next year, 2023.

Treasurer Judy Lasca reports that our class treasury is in excellent shape; more news on that will follow in our next newsletter.


CROSS YOUR FINGERS  🤞
Missy and Mari received this promising  news in an email from the college:… the Alumnae Office is planning an on-campus, in-person Reunion Weekend this June.  All our fingers are crossed but all that planning is well underway.  It will be so nice to welcome alumnae back to their beautiful campus.  Many of the Reunion events will be live-streamed to include those alumnae that were unable to return to campus.  It's all very exciting! 

 

NEWS FOR THE WELLESLEY MAGAZINE

THE CLASS OF 1960 CONTINUES TO GIVE GENEROUSLY
According to Mari Wright, the Development Office reports, "The December 2021 books are closed and reports are now available.  1960 is doing very well.  Cash raised in total (to date) is:  $145,093.  You have 83 donors. You also have 9 Durant Society Members.  All good news.”  Wellesley’s fiscal year is June to June, so this is a half year report.
