Next June we’ll be celebrating our 60th Reunion!! This is a milestone we couldn’t have imagined back in 1958 when we picked up our diplomas, and headed out into the wide, wide world.
In the meantime, we are preparing the 60th Reunion Record Book, and we want it to be one that’s worthy of all of us.
We have a wealth of memories. We have lived through the administrations of 14 Presidents, gone from typewriters to computers, changed from dresses to pants and seen opportunities for women expand
But each of us has had her own unique experiences. Please share them with your classmates for our Record Book.
We have created a form on which you can put your basic information, share your thoughts, and some of that wisdom we’ve acquired in our eight decades. You can reach it through this link: Click here
You can fill it out and submit it online. Or you can print it out and mail it to Jeanie Teare, 3111 Oliver St NW, DC 20015. The important thing is that the book will be incomplete without your input.
We also want your picture. This will be our first Record Book in color. So please send us a recent---or relatively recent—headshot. If you don’t have one handy, have someone take a photo on your camera or cell phone—or take a selfie. It’s best to take the photo outside in late afternoon where there’s lots of light. Then send it “actual size” to Joan Robins at firstname.lastname@example.org And remember, we’ve earned every one of those wrinkles.
Sadly, a number of our classmates have died since our last reunion. Please find their names at the bottom of this email. We welcome your tributes which may be sent to Carol Garfiel Freeman at email@example.com
All of this to be accomplished by December 1 so we have time to edit and design the book which will be sent to everyone in the class who is not ‘lost.’ We will accept donations toward the book later on our class website.
Whether or not “eighty” is the new “sixty,” we members of the Wellesley class of 1958, may not be as agile as we once were, but we are still a force to be reckoned with.
Go ’58! Get started ’58!
