Happy New Year, Friends!

I have just gotten back from such a lovely visit with Melinda Reingold! We rang in the New Year,
took each day at our own pace, wined and dined each other, reminisced about all of our times,
friends and professors at Wellesley, spoke with a few Wellesley friends — including classmate
Lindsay Roberts on the phone — remembered our best and most well-liked professors, and
looked forward to being on campus again!


What a great way to bring in 2024, year four on the lead up to a very special Reunion in May
2028! I look forward to seeing many of you there!


Meanwhile the Class Leadership Team is already meeting by Zoom to discuss how best to
reach out and say hello to you and to create some Class of 1978 content on our Class Website
and 1-9-7-8 Wellesley RAH! Class Facebook page to further engage and activate our class
membership and get everyone excited about attending our 50th Reunion!

 

Please take a moment to share on our Class Facebook page,
https://www.facebook.com/groups/1978WellesleyRAH, where you are/were and what you did to
celebrate the holidays and ring in the New Year!

 

The position of co-president is open since Leigh Hough recently resigned. I have decided to
remain and would love to have a classmate join me as co-president. While I’m working with the
Alumnae Association on the process to nominate and elect a co-president, I invite any of you to
email me directly at afahim@afaspc.com should you be interested in volunteering to fill that role.

 

Lastly, although your username and password is needed on the Wellesley website, you can get
to our Class website page without logging in by going to https://alum.wellesley.edu/class-of-
1978. You can click "log in" in the top right and it is your normal Wellesley login. There is a
button to click for anyone who has problems signing in that will help you logon.

 

If you have trouble with that, you can call on the Tech Help Desk to assist at
helpdesk@wellesley.edu or call 781.283.3333. They are open between 8:30-4:30 EST Monday
through Friday except holidays to answer questions.

 

Best regards and warmest wishes,
Your Wellesley College Class of 1978 President
Anne Reilly Fahim '78
