Betsy Brunton Peters
in Buffalo in Au-
gust. Betsy came into town all the way from
Maine to support a high school friend who had
lost her husband (who happened to be a good
friend of mine). She is running a small business
in Maine (and doing very well) and keeps in touch
with a few St. Lawrence friends.
I also spoke via email and Facebook with
who was trying to convince
husband Steve to go to St. Lawrence’s reunion
last June and/or his 25
high school reunion in
Buffalo in July. Unfortunately, neither worked,
but I hope to see them soon. Steve and Kim are
still in Rochester, N.Y.
Speaking of Facebook, while I am connected
with many of you, I usually don’t share your news
in this column unless you ask. So, if there is some-
thing you want to share with your classmates,
please email me or connect with me on Facebook
and send me a message. I hope to have more
news for you in the future.

In August I enjoyed a four-week paid sabbati-
cal from Cerner, where I have worked for nine
years. I hadn’t had this much time off in a row
since graduation, so I was in heaven! I visited
three states that I had never been to: Alabama,
Louisiana and Arkansas. Only five left: Alaska,
Idaho, North Dakota, Oregon and Wisconsin…
if you live in one of these, I hope to see you!
My goal is to explore all 50 before 50.
