We had a wonderful lunch today (May 24) at the Waterfront Restaurant in Camden. The food was very good and I’m surprised we even finished lunch since we talked constantly. What a great little catch-up, and we plan to do this again—Becky

E-NEWSLETTER NOVEMBER 2022-CLASS OF 1960

Greetings, dear ’60 Sisters,

It’s hard to believe that we are approaching the end of another year. Your class officer team hopes that it has been a good year for you, and that the new one will be even better. For an injection of sheer pleasure along the way, we recommend participating in a dorm mini via Zoom. Catching up with Wellesley memories and long- lost friends produces a totally benign high.

Meanwhile, this month, as promised, we have yet another generous sharing of 1960 talent and expertise for you: from the Harvard -Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics Center our own Andrea Kundsin Dupree will explain the latest news.

And then we have the holidays coming up to produce more festive highs. We hope you are able to spend them with family and close friends to celebrate and savor the relationships that are particularly resonant at this time in our lives.

Wishing you all a very tasty Thanksgiving, a joyful holiday season, and healthy and happy 2023.

Patsy and Vicki

WHERE IN THE WORLD IS JILL UDALL?

 

 

Jill and her husband Tom are having a great adventure. Here’s a clue: they are not in the U.S.

Read all about it in Margie’s class notes in The
Wellesley Magazine.

WALKTOBER

As we did last year, the Class of 1960 will keep its own records.  We accumulated enough miles then to “virtually” send Patsy Fogarty from Mt. Desert Island, Maine to Miami.  This year we want to send her to Naples Florida to help with the cleanup.. Our class count for Walktober is informal and unofficial.  
Please send your estimated totals to vfay1960@mac.com

MINI REUNION

JUNE 4-5 CAMPUS AND CAMBRIDGE

See many more reunion pictures at Class website:
https://alum.wellesley.edu/class-of-1960

Sixteen classmates participated in our joyous Mini Reunion, June 4 and 5: Joan Brownstein Leibovich, Ev Bullitt Hausslein, Marilyn Claster Nissenson, Patsy Elliott Fogarty, Vicki Garriques Fay, Liz Kahlo Cabot, Andrea Kundsin Dupree, Linda Lovett Crawford, Diana Merewether, Linda Salzman Gottlieb, Diane Silvers Ravitch, Bea Strand MacDonald, Margot Topkins Tutun, Roz Walters Westmoreland, Fifi Wolfner Nessen, and Margie Myers Arons-Barron. Red roses to Margje and Joan for making it all happen.

Joan started the festivities with an evening  of pizza, prattle, and photo ops at her condo overlooking the Charles in Cambridge. Sunday morning we reunited on campus to join the reunion parade under bright blue skies. We were the oldest to march as a class and received cheers, claps and whistles—especially from the red class of 1972, returning for their 50th.

The parade ended at Alumnae Hall. We gathered for a very brief meeting, during which we remembered those of our classmates lost since last year’s memorial service:  Sue Crommelin DellJane Waddell Baker, Aina Niemela Barten, Mary Needham Ascot,  Judith Fellows Nelson, Mary (Molly) Cameron.

CLASS OFFICERS MEETING JUNE 20th AND 1960 GIFTS TO WELLESLEY
In the very near future, our treasury funds will be transferred to the College for management. There was considerable discussion of possible donations to be made now from those funds. It was decided to make a one-time donation to the Engineering Fund (Class of 1960 Legacy Fund) of $5000 and to the Continuing Education Fund of $1000, which would leave the Class Treasury with just over $20,000. These remaining funds would be ours to use as we see fit for reunions,
minis, and other purposes. (Also, our class treasury is replenished every year by the dividend from the 1960 Class Legacy Fund.)   
 
DORM MINIS
Severence and Freeman continue to hold virtual minis via /zoom. Others are tentatively penciled in for the fall for Beebe and Munger. Want to explore the idea of a mini for your dorm? Contact Class VP Peggy Cohen at peggycohn38@gmail.com or her co-VP Liz Karet at elizabethkaret@aol.com
