Past Events:

Estate Planning for You and Your Family (November 5, 2022)

Wellesley Alum Elizabeth Schlesinger ’05 (Washington University School of Law '08) is an estate planning attorney who will speak to alums about how to go about the basics of financial and estate planning both for themselves and their parents Thanks to the 17+ classmates who have already signed up to attend! This will be recorded for class members who cannot make the time slot. 

 

Recap: How to Have Hard Conversations: A Discussion About How to Have End of Life Conversations With Loved Ones 

October 2022 saw the first in our class's series on aging: learning how to approach end-of-life planning with our loved ones. The conversation was led by Kate DeBartolo '06, Senior Director of The Conversation Project (TCP) (do we want to link to the org’s website?), an organization that has created tools and guides to help us communicate about the kinds of care we -- or our loved ones -- want, and don't want, so those wishes can be respected and understood. Kate led a lovely, engaging, and thought-provoking conversation with twenty members of our class. For those wishing to listen, or listen again, please click below for the recording. You do not need a Wellesley login to open the file.

A Toast to Madeleine! (June 30, 2022)

A Toast to Madeleine! As we near the July 4th Holiday, let’s Zoom together with some champagne to toast one of our generation’s SHEroes, the incomparable Madeleine Korbel Albright (‘59). Join us as we reflect on what she meant to us as a class and how she has inspired our personal, professional, and political lives, as Americans and/or citizens of other nations and the world. As we move forward in 2022, may we always ask: What would Madeleine do?

For extra credit, before the event, if you have not yet done so, we encourage you to read her autobiography: Hell and Other Destinations: A 21st-Century Memoir - found here or at your local bookstore.

Wear Red, White & Blue for a fun group photo! (We know the timing is a bit tricky - we’re trying to work across lots of time zones, hopefully you can grab 10-30 minutes from your day to pop on!)

 

Holidays, Traditions, and Climate Conversation (April 24, 2022)

Join us to talk about our spring traditions and holidays and share our climate stories with each other.  We’re really looking forward to seeing you and hearing from everyone.

 

Mocktails Event Recap  (February 6, 2022)

More than two dozen classmates and guests attended a fun hour with Theresa Tribble & her son, Victor Ferrara. Victor, age ten and already an accomplished mixologist, led the gang through two delightful mocktails: an orange ginger fizz and a basil lime spritzer.  Such was his inspiration that many guests have already repeated and riffed on his original recipes!

With attendees ranging in age from five to 45, all had 100% fun!  Stay tuned for future programs, including wine tasting with Emily Wilson, and future cocktails & mocktails with Victor, Theresa, and Emily.

 

"2022 in One Word"  (Sunday, January 9, 2022)

From Tiki, our VP and organizer of this event: I’m not big into resolutions. Personally, I think resolutions do not work,. However, I believe in choosing one word to be a theme for the upcoming year. My word for 2021 was intentionality, which meant I had to get clear on what I wanted even in the middle of a pandemic.

I want to invite everyone in our class to join a conversation about what our words for 2022 will be. This program gives us an opportunity to explore ways to be consistent with ourselves in a world that consistently throws us off-balance. Some of us are thriving, surviving, or somewhere in the middle, let's talk about it! Please join me as we get curious about what 2022 has in store for us. This will be the start of Class of 2001's #25for25 initiative.
