Next Reunion in 2000. Got news? Tap out a note tomagazine@bates.edu ! Jerry Donahoe recently returned from treks through the mountains of Patagonia and e-mailed his account. “I hiked and camped amidst stunning mountain scenery and survived wind gusts of up to 100 mph, though my tent was not so lucky. While in South America, I also joined a 10-day voyage from Tierra del Fuego across the Drake Passage (30-foot seas) to the Antarctic peninsula on a former Soviet research vessel. While exploring the glacial shores of Antarctica, a wind shift caused icebergs and ice flows to block our Zodiac’s return to the vessel — requiring a delicate rescue mission by the vessel. Perhaps my most unique dining experience ever was eating steak, prawn, and lamb at an on-deck barbecue during a snowstorm, as the ship rested in the icy waters of a bay created by a sunken caldera (volcano).”

Next Reunion in 2003. Got news? Tap out a note tomagazine@bates.edu ! Thanks to all who made the effort and came to Reunion last June. We think that all who attended had an outstanding time and most everyone made it at least once to the Blue Goose, where the only thing that’s changed is the man behind the bar. We were fortunate enough to be assigned “the Village” for our residence during the weekend. These three dormitories are the newest on campus and are at the edge of the football field, close to Wentworth Adams Hall. For our Friday night ice-breaker we had fun learning who came the farthest to attend Reunion, who had changed the most, or the least, and whose step-child was denied admission to Bates. Our theme, “Bates, the way life used to be,” was very appropriate because we all spent a lot of time laughing and enjoying the company of people that we hadn’t seen in a long time. (I believe there even were several hangovers just like the good old days.) A little rain didn’t dampen the Alumni Parade on Saturday, and our Saturday night banquet with the classes of 1982 and 1984 was a great success. To all who came, we appreciate it very much, and hope you will all convince another classmate who wasn’t there to come to the 20th.

Next Reunion in 2003. Got news? Tap out a note tomagazine@bates.edu ! Thanks to everyone who responded to our call for news. It’s always great to hear from fellow ’84ers, friends old and new. >From Valley Glen, Calif., Ginny Addison Siegler writes, “It’s been a busy year — what else is new.” In her “spare” time, Ginny works as a casting consultant; however, mostly she’s at home with her boys: Jesse and Dylan. Both are in their second year of pre-school (different classes). Jesse begins kindergarten next fall, with Dylan following in 2000. Husband Ben starred in a play in November and was due to appear in a Christmas special, Chicken Soup for the Soul. As if that’s not enough, he also has the male lead in a Lifetime movie called Different airing in April. Besides acting, Ben is also writing the screen play for Left Behind, based on the best-selling novel, as well as writing his own screen plays. Congratulations to Ben and Ginny celebrating 10 years of marriage. Congratulations also to Bill Bell (Bill_Bell@dta.state.ma.us) and Susan, for celebrating nine years together. Bill recently celebrated his fifth year as the assistant commissioner for administration and finance with the Massachusetts Department of Transitional Assistance. On the domestic front, their sons, Andrew (7) and Colin (3), continue to grow and prosper. Bill notes that he enjoyed the 15th Reunion and the opportunity to be with fellow classmates….Cherry Bennett and life partner Amy Grose have entered the world of home ownership: “After saving and surviving in a small apartment for years we finally bought our own home in North Andover, Mass. Now we understand the woes and wonders of home ownership. It’s wonderful to put in perennials and know we’ll be here to see them bloom in the spring!” Cherry teaches physical education and theater in the Danvers school system. This winter, she will direct a production of Annie in the middle school with more than 200 children involved. Amy enters her eighth year as a pediatric oncology social worker at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Children’s Hospital in Boston. She works with families and children with cancer and continues to find this challenging and rewarding…. Home ownership is soon to come to Steffani Catanese Lomax (steffani.lomax@tivoli.com) and her husband. They’re building a house in Marlboro, Mass., which, if all goes right, will have been completed by Christmas. Steffani works as an account manager for Tivoli Systems, a subsidiary of IBM. It wouldn’t be Steffani if she weren’t still playing tennis. She won three USTA women’s singles titles this year and will be ranked in New England in 1999. Recently, she visited with Kathy Evans Wisner, and her new daughter, Emily…. From sunny California, we hear fromCheryl Croteau Orr (c.orr@mpglaw.com): “Reunion was great fun! It was good to catch up with those who made the effort to attend, including many from third-floor Page — the coed experiment our freshmen year. Thanks to Charlie andAnnie Richardson and Lisa Quintal Loeb for all their hard work! Special hellos to Leslie Yim Walters, Liz Salvo McBreen, and Donna Messer Climo, all of whom I missed terribly at Reunion.” Cheryl continues to practice law as a partner at Musick, Peller and Garrett in Los Angeles, specializing in appeals. Juggling work and the demands of her household (husband Steve, sons Matthew and William, and Rex the favorite dog) is sometimes anxiety producing, but well worth the efforts on all fronts…. Another ’84er adjusting the work/home balance is Ann Dean O’Connor. From Merrimack, N.H., she decided after 14 years as a paralegal to retire to become a full-time mom to Jim (6), Holly (5), and littlest angel, Samantha, born Nov. 6, 1998. Congratulations on her arrival! Ann is discovering it’s hectic being a hockey and gymnastics mom and would love to hear from any other stay-at-home moms…. Michelle Duer O’Brien(mobirne04@snet.net) writes from Tolland, Conn., that “not much” is new. She continues her work at Charles Schwab in Hartford. “Am now a boring suburbanite complete with husband, house, dog, toddler, and grown-up car!”… Congratulations to Rich Emrich (rmemrich@hewitt.com) on the birth of their third child, Steven, born March 25, 1998. Steven joins siblings Brian (6) and Nora (4), who are jealous of the attention and demands of an infant. Rich has changed jobs, working now at Hewitt Associates in Lincolnshire, Ill., where he drives by Michael Jordan’s house twice daily. If that’s not enough, he was working out with some of the Bulls during the recent lockout. “Best regards to all my classmates, especially Jane, Sarah, Colin, Brad and Jim. I miss you!”…Amy Frankenburg writes: “Husband Rob and I are living in Scotland. We have been over here for almost two years working for British Petroleum in exploration and production. Rob is a geologist and I work as an engineer. We are here on a three-to- five-year securement and hope to transfer back to our home in Anchorage, Alaska, when our jobs are finished here. We are taking advantage of the generous European vacation allotment and have been traveling, traveling, traveling. We’ve been to Thailand, trekking in Nepal, Tanzania, Ireland, France, and Norway, as well as all over Scotland. Still hope to make more trips to Africa, Turkey, and Iceland.” She still keeps contact with Laura Simmons Jones and Steve Whitaker, both of whom attend her wedding in May 1995…. Congratulations to John and Peg Galant(galantfrat@aol.com) on the birth of their daughter, PJ, on May 20, 1998. John’s pediatric practice continues to grow but doesn’t bring near as much joy as PJ…. From Waterloo, Maine, we hear that the joys of motherhood and family life have come to Maureen Graves Anderson (anderson@mix-net.net) whose daughter, Helen, will be 2 in February, when she’s expecting her second child. Maureen quit her job last winter to focus on family and finishing her master’s degree in human factors psychology at the Univ. of Idaho, via distance education. She is performing in a dance, choreographed by a local artist, about Barbie dolls versus real women. At six-months pregnant, she was one of the real women!… Also from Maine, we hear from Karen Hamilton: “Having experienced married life, I’ve now opted for the completely single life. After a serious period of adjustment (don’t try this at home folks!), I’ve now decided this is good. I’m even in the market for a house. Otherwise, job is work; no kids, cats. I seeMarian Butler ’83 regularly, Alex Johnston, George Abbott, Reed Altemus sporadically; still want to hear fromLiz Drolet. Life is good!”… The Houde family writes from Yorktown, Va., after their move from Massachusetts. Johnfinished residency in orthopedic surgery at UMass Medical Center in June. He is now an orthopedic surgeon on active duty at Langley Air Force Base. John and Jennifer (Rybeck)’86 (rybeckhoude@worldnet.att.net) have two beautiful girls: Nel (4/17/96) and Georgia (4/4/98). John writes: “I haven’t been corresponding often, but Bates is never far from our thoughts. All our best to everyone.” And also to you, John….Julie Jackson (jjackson@mullen.com) works and loves it at Mullen Advertising and Public Relations in Wenham, Mass. Some of her accounts include Polartec (Malden Mills), Dexter Shoe, and L.L. Bean Kids…. Live from Chicago, Timothy Jones is having a great time in the Windy City. There’s a small contingency from those rival schools who get together periodically. During the summer,
TJ had dinner with John Murchison ’88 in West Hollywood, and also with Veronica Valentine ’85 in Boston. He and wife, Maxine Dixon ’88 are expecting their first child. Congratulations to the future graduate of the class of 2020!… Warm congratulations also toVivienne Kaye West (rkvkwest@aol.com) on the birth of her second child, Lucy Rebecca, who joined her big brother Thomas, now 4, in August. She writes, “We continue to be happily settled in suburban New Jersey, where I am at home with the two children. I see Ruth Slocum, who lives with her family in Ridgewood, and still in touch with Patrice Saveryin Seattle.”… Lori Kimball graduated in May 1998 with a master’s degree in clinical counseling from the University of Southern Maine. She is currently a full-time mom, enjoying the toddler years of her 3-year-old, Trevor. She also finished general contracting on her new house (fondly called “the castle”), and moved in last July. She invites fellow Batesies to stay if they’re ever in Maine on the ocean and looking for a view!…. After a stint in upstate New York, we hear from Donand Heather Wygant McDonough. They left New York and Ryan Homes for northern Kentucky just across the river from Cincinnati. Don is a division manager for Fischer Homes and loves the new job. Heather continues to manage house and three active children. They have a competitive cheerleader and a traveling hockey player so they don’t have much free time. Don plays in a men’s league hockey team. They invite anyone traveling through or near Cincinnati to stop by…. Brian McGrory was recently named by The Boston Globe to fill Mike Barnicle’s prime columnist spot on the Metro/Region pages, which prompted The Improper Bostonian to comment: “In the local newspaper world, where there has been a return to reality among Globe columnists trying to tell compelling stories without making them up, McGrory scores very high. The 36-year old Roslindale native is a cool, classically trained journalist as comfortable chasing a story about the president of the United States as he would be writing about a Chelsea bookmaker who might have bought a pardon from the president. McGrory knows about the human predicament….”…We hear from Jim and Sue Kempton Mulholland (jsmiii@worldnet.att.net) from sunny Florida, where Jim was recently elected to the board of trustees of Saint Edward’s School of Vero Beach. The school is a private school serving the needs of 850 children, aged pre-kindergarten through 12th grade…. Still enjoying Palo Alto, Calif., Karen Palermo Saxena (karen@cccpp.com) continues her work at the same educational software company where she has been for the last eight years. She also volunteers for the PTA and in her children’s classrooms. She has three children: fifth grade, second grade, and pre-school. She is race director for the third annual Juana Run, a major fund-raiser for their school. “Come run if you are in Palo Alto on January 17th!” And it wouldn’t be Karen if she herself weren’t running. She’s training for a marathon now that triathalon season is over. Good luck to you and your knees…. Dan Pierce writes from Amesbury, Mass., where he is program director of the WGIR Action News Network, which consists of three stations: WGIR-AM in Manchester, N.H.; WGIN- AM in Rochester, N.H.; and WGIP-AM in Exeter, N.H. He hosts a radio show from 9 a.m. to noon, Monday through Friday, and a weekly political roundup on WMVR-TV, plus makes regular appearances on Channel 9′s Close UP, which airs on Sundays. Wife Lisa and 2-year-old daughter KC enjoy their new house. “While mowing almost an acre of lawn is a chore, it’s worth it when I relax on the deck with a beverage and look across my domain. (The garage ain’t bad either!)”… In New York,Artemis Preeshl is on the national tour of Moliere’s French farce, Tartuffe. They tour from Massachusetts to Florida, Oklahoma, Minneapolis, and New York. The production is bilingual, just one of her jobs that enable her to use her French degree! She also has appeared as Emily in Our Town; Shelby in Steel Magnolias, and Isabella in Measure for Measure. For the past two years, she has worked as executive and managerial assistant to Ronald A. Wilford, president of Columbia Artists Management, managing artist availability, statements, and contracts for many well-known performers. Husband Richard Steinberg teaches yoga…. For co-secretaryLisa Quintal Loeb (dloeb@choate.edu), fall included a bat mitzvah, continued teaching positions at Kingswood/Oxford School in West Hartford (where Lisa coached cross country for the first time) and, for Dave, at Choate Rosemary Hall. Their children are growing up fast. Jonah is 10 and wants to be a major league baseball player, while Hannah (8) wants to be on Broadway…. Carolyn and John Raitt(john.raitt@altec.com, F1straitt@aol.com) send greetings from the Lansing, Mich., area, where they’ve been for the last five years. They have three cats: Smokey, General Sterling, and Sebastian. “We’ve been out here long enough to become Midwesterners. We do miss the East, though, and visit family as much as possible, especially our son Ian James, who is buried in Boston.” We are all sorry to hear your sad news. John and Carolyn conclude their letter with an open invitation for anyone in or traveling through Michigan: “Please look us up. We would love to hear from you.”… The following noteworthy letter came from David Richards(davidr@somtel.com): “During a recent visit to Bates, I had the opportunity to address a class studying 19th- century U.S. history. My foremost impression was how much, and yet how little, Bates has changed in the 15 years since we graduated. History House still looks virtually the same and the history faculty still looks very familiar. With the notable exception of the audiovisual equipment and computer lab, Libbey Forum has changed little, too. I suspect the prevalence of the computer may be the greatest change that has come to campus since our departure. Given the indispensability of the computer in my life now, it is astounding that I managed to get through Bates only having to use a computer a few times for one course. The building boom on campus has yielded Olin Arts Center, Underhill Arena, and the Residential Village, plus renovation to Carnegie Science Hall since our departure. The Taj Mahal — otherwise known as the new Academic Building [now Pettengill Hall; see story in On & Off] — rises along the shores of Lake Andrews. Its towering scale and striking form will likely make it the centerpiece of the campus, both academically and architecturally, for many years to come. My contact with students was too brief to determine definitively how they compare with us. A friend of mine who teaches at Bates says the student body strikes her as being fairly socially aware and politically active. Despite the briefness of the interaction, I can report with certainty that the students I met were attentive, polite (they certainly didn’t applaud the presentation because it was so outstanding), and conscientious (how many of us would have bothered to attend a class on the day Thanksgiving break commenced?). I especially enjoyed the chat I had with a senior after class. At work on his thesis, he exhibited exemplary enthusiasm for his project. Searching for the proper words of encouragement to inspire him, I found myself remarking that my less-than-100 page Bates thesis had been infinitely harder to write and defend than my nearly 600-page dissertation. As I uttered the comment, I realized that I was echoing nearly verbatim an observation I had heard then-Dean of Admissions Bill Hiss ’66 (he’s now a College VP) make about his own academic experience, and knew that my wisdom, maturity — and agedness — were showing. My brief return to the alma mater made me appreciat
e how much I have changed over the past decade and, more to the point, how much my enduring Bates experience has changed me. For that, I give thanks!” Thank you indeed for sharing your impressions. Many of us have felt similarly…. Eliza Richardsmarried Raul Aguilar in September 1998. They met while doing doctoral work at the Univ. of Michigan. Eliza has accepted an offer for a tenure-track position in the English department at Boston Univ., where she will be teaching American literature (through 1900) with a specialization in poetry. Raul will be teaching in the mathematics department there…. Martha Roberts Wolfenden(wolfenden@netway.com) gave birth to their sixth child (and second son) in August! Her oldest is 10. Martha is very busy shuffling from one activity to another. Besides maintaining some semblance of serenity at home, Martha is involved in the children’s school and tutors privately. “My life is extremely busy and often times chaotic, but I couldn’t be happier! My children are my life’s greatest pleasure!” Great that you had a free minute to respond…. From Missouri, John Sloan(jsloan1001@aol.com) echoes those sentiments: “This has been an extremely eventful year. Our son Mark Thomas was born on May 5. We now have three children: Jack (5), Claire (2), and Mark. Nancy and I have changed jobs in the past six months. I work for Linco Research (a biotech company specializing in diabetes and obesity research), which was recently honored as one of the fastest growing companies in the St. Louis area. Nancy left her position in the ER and has joined inpatient care, a group providing coverage at several hospitals. So between jobs, kids, and a 90-year-old house, we barely have time to sit down, but we are planning an East Coast trip in 1999.”… Ginny Voigt (vev@aol.com) married Carroll Canipe in October 1994. Subsequent births of Sarah Allison in March 1996 and Christopher Holmes in January 1998 has kept her engaged and engrossed, so “news” to Bates is last on the priority list. She continues her career as a psychotherapist at a community mental health center in Baltimore and part-time private practice. She enjoys raising her children, living in the suburbs, and working in the city. “I’d like to say a special hello to all old friends from Bates ’79 to ’84, and invite anyone to contact me.”… As for me, Linda Webster (linda.webster@smed.com), I live in a quaint small town in suburban Philadelphia that reminds me very much of Portland (except for the ocean). I work as a systems analyst for Shared Medical Systems, a worldwide computer company with medical applications. I returned to school for a degree in medical record management, graduating in 1994, and somehow found my way to the computer industry. It’s been a good year for travel, including my first visit to London with my family. Additionally, I tested mettle against pedal on a biking excursion through Glacier Park, Mont. The 12-mile, uphill Going to the Sun Road was nothing compared to the four-mile, 4,000-foot climb to Chief Mountain at 10,000 feet! It was also a good year for Bobcat weddings: My cousin,Mark McSherry ’80 married on Cape Cod and hosted a summer gala with other Bobcats in attendance. This fall, I, along with several Bobcats, attended Diane Olivera ’85′s wedding…. Mary Wright writes from California: “In June, I bid a sad goodbye to the state of Maine as husband Mike, two children, and I have moved to Southern California. While I won’t miss the ice storms, I’ll miss my former students in Brunswick and fall in New England.” Mike’s new position allows Mary time at home with Lauren (2) and Truman (6), at least for a few years. Mary says that this is the first move made without the help of fellow Batesies Yain Lu, David Braslau,or the Needham- Wood family! She laments their absence to be the cause of so many broken items!
