surgery, both eager to get that behind them and
return to campus inMay. I don’t believe they have
missed a reunion yet. A lot of good vibes are com-
ing your way from all your friends.
Summers for
Lois Langtry
are spent watching
beautiful sunsets over the St. Lawrence River,
catching up on all the books that came out in the
winter, and canning jams, jellies, spaghetti sauce
and pickles. Although husband Ken enjoys the
jams and jellies daily, Lois also uses them for gifts
and donates them to the library’s“Bake and Book
Sale.” Although she is retired, she spends a cou-
ple of mornings a week in the real estate office.
Grandchildren are always a pleasure, but there is
less grandma time as they get older. A trip to Il-
linois to check on cropland Ken owns reinforced
the picture of the devastation of the drought.
I call this the right attitude!
Dodie Potts Giltz
wrote that she and Rod ’59 have made reserva-
tions for our reunion. They will be stopping in
D.C., on their way to Naples, Fla., to visit grandson
Collin, who is an intern for their Congressman, Bill
Owens. Collin, a student at Bates College, is the
son of daughter Deena Giltz McCullough ’84, past
president of the Alumni Council.
Although I could not convince
Ed Myers
to co-
chair the Reunion Planning Committee with me,
he did volunteer to make some calls, so some of
you will be hearing from him. He and his fam-
ily spent a week in Vermont, on Lake Champlain.
Beautiful clear skies greeted them every day, per-
haps a bit of a departure from Texas—and a bit
cooler. Ever busy, Ed is still in architectural sales
and is a swimming instructor for the YMCA and
giving private lessons.
Mona “Honey” Jore Moore
and Tim still ski,
and last spring spent a week in Florida “enjoying
non-Disney highlights including the Kennedy
Space Center and having lunch with the Florida
Jores. Daughter Bjorna continues her coura-
geous battle to be healthy. Tim installed a new
inch HDTV in time for movie-screen viewing
of the London Olympics.”
It had been a long time since I had heard from
Tom and
Kay Sauers Kehoe
so I let my fingers do
the walking and had a nice chat with Kay. They,
especially Tom, have had some tough health is-
sues to deal with. However, they were able to get
away to Florida to see the new great-grandchild
and have a spontaneous family reunion of sorts.
Kay is in contact with
Judy Burford Doran
lives nearby in Virginia.
Al Jones
continues to play golf at the St. Law-
rence course, two and sometimes three times
a week, weather permitting. He joins Jack Law-
rence ’61M, father of Mary Lawrence, club profes-
sional and SLU golf coach.
Becky Blaisdell ’60 and
Pete Van deWater
ed Lucy Tower ’56 and Fred Funke ’56 and me
to a delicious breakfast in the fall. As usual, the
conversation centered around the many environ-
mental issues Pete champions in the North Coun-
try. I also learned that Pete, a gentleman always,
cherishes no ill will from Fred’s cutting him from
the Beta song group. It was great fun to reminisce
and hear more than a few stories shared.
A quick phone call to
Barbara Blair Nangle
led me to understand that summer trips to New
York City and Maine for visits with daughters
and grandchildren proved wonderfully un-
eventful and happy. Hometown Rochester and
then the Thousand Islands were the settings for
more family gatherings, and she and Phil at-
tended a family wedding in Portland, Ore. With
her suitcase unpacked, she sounded ready for a
little R&R at home.
My grandchildren are covering the college
scene. Corey, my oldest, is assistant women’s ice
hockey coach at Connecticut College, and her
sister Brady ’15 plays field hockey and softball.
Grandson Charlie transferred to Salisbury State,
and his brother Zach entered Frederick Com-
munity College in Maryland. Grandson Luke
is teaching sailing and working in the writing
lab in his sophomore year at Eckerd College in
Florida, and his sister Claire is visiting colleges.
Where did the time go?
The receipt of a mystery email from
Tom Co-
prompted a bit of news. He and Mary
have a family wedding on Reunion Weekend,
so will be unable to attend. They are looking
forward to a 30-day cruise in March to Hawaii
and South Pacific islands.
Barbara Gray
sent a terrific photo (see page
of a mostly Pi Phi gathering at her home.
That group always has a dynamic visit together.
Jolene Holt Fuhrmann
Carter Booker
were unable to join them, Barbara
B.J. Dunlap Erhard
Peg Norris Belden
and MaryLou Horn Davies
along with her sis-
ter Martha Gray Graham ‘55 and a long-time
friend. B.J. claimed that they spent the time play-
ing bridge, discussing the election and politics
in general, and eating. Jolene, B.J. and their hus-
bands, Craig and Jack, had a wonderful few days
camping at Rollins Pond, only a short distance
from Canaras, the St. Lawrence camp on Upper
Saranac Lake. Although B.J. claimed it was one
of the quietest places they have been, I cannot
imagine it was all that quiet during their visit.
As I hope you know by now,
MargHannon Kee-
is chairing the Reunion Development Com-
mittee and I am heading up the Planning Com-
mittee. We both need lots of assistance to make
this the success we want it to be. We welcome
your participation, the more the merrier. Ideas or
suggestions for themes or a general approach to
either endeavor are most welcome. Please con-
tact Marg or me or the University to volunteer and
share ideas. Although it has been almost 59 years
since we arrived on campus, the years melt away
each time we gather, recall our halcyon days and
renew friendships. Make it a priority to be here
in Canton May 30-June 2. Until then, put phone,
pen or computer in hand, please!

Bob Ferry
and Doris Kloppenburg ’56 put
many of us to shame with their many skills and
activities. They spent time last summer at the
Newport Hall of Fame Tennis Tournament, and
by Christmas they were in Florida, with frequent
skiing trips to Colorado. Bob says that at their
age they must keep active every day. He is right!
They did a “Yacht Exchange” and took a 16-day
cruise from Florida to Rome. Wow!
Softball pitcher Kyle Plimpton ’15 threw a per-
fect game last spring – if you still have the sum-
mer issue of this magazine, see her picture. She is
a triple legacy: both parents, an aunt and uncle,
and her grandparents, notably her grandmother,
Sandy Steinkuller Plimpton
What fun for you
and how proud you must be.
Sancy Day Isham
and Frits ’60 re-sided their
house during the terrible Virginia heat and humid-
ity last summer. Jack and I stayed in New England!
I am just not very good at communicating on
Facebook BUT from time to time I see classmates’
Trey Cryer, Ann Sullivan Ryan
cy Schloss Hirayama
I think you each were hav-
ing a birthday, so how about an email with the
rest of your news?
My pen pal,
Dave Matthews
has now become
a telephone pal. We enjoyed a wonderful conver-
sation after I received a lovely gift of two of his
beautiful pottery mugs. He is a fine potter who
may soon be headed for retirement after mak-
ing “more than a quarter of a million pieces on
the wheel.” Body aches and pains may force his
retirement. I have seen his pottery inmany places
over the years. He was planning a trip, possibly
to Cuba. Dave regrets not attending our 50
union, so maybe between
Jack McGreivey
me, we will convince him to be at our 55
in 2014.
I close with the long-awaited introduction of
our first recipient of the Class of 1959 Scholar-
ship: Emma Warren ’16. She is a Community
Service Scholar from Sedona, Ariz. This tells you
a lot about who she is: obviously someone who
has been and will be involved in giving back to
her community. Updates will fol-
low as we watch her progress.
Meantime, many, many thanks
to all of you for making this pos-
sible. We want the scholarship
to continue to grow, so please
consider a planned gift or add to
your annual gift.

At last, some news from a 1960 classmate,
Doug lives in Boca Raton, Fla., with his
wife, Diana. He retired as a senior vice president
fromMorgan Stanley in 2005 and began to volun-
teer at The Haven, a nationally accredited group
home for boys ages 9-17 who come from abusive
or neglectful homes. He is a mentor who devel-
ops a relationship with a boy and gains his trust.
He’s basically a friend and/or father figure. So far
he has mentored six boys. One has gone on to
college; another has enlisted in the Army, which
he hopes to make a career. Others have entered
trade schools and learned job skills. Doug has
taken many trips to sporting events with these
boys, and stays in contact even after they leave
the home. He says he has found great satisfaction
in his relationships with these needy young men.
Please write! I’d love to hear your stories!
