Seventeen 66ers attended their 50th Reunion on Mount Ida Friday May 20 – May 22 and had a wonderful time reconnecting with friends and memories. As many of those memories included classmates who could not attend, you were sorely missed.

We also remembered our classmates that left us too soon: Diane Bedford, Lorna Lincoln, Dagy Neely, Jill Simonds, Jeannie Strong, Pattie Robbie, Ann Wells, Esme Barnes, Peggy Fields, and Libby Huntington.

Thank you to all who took and shared these photos of friends, events and the beautiful campus. And that’s where I’ll start.

When you step on campus you are reminded and awestruck by the beauty both outside and inside these almost 200 year-old buildings (the school was founded in 1821).

Thank you Nancy for this beautiful photo

.

On our walkabout, we discovered there are no more quads and yes, Tabby and I went into our Sophomore “quad” to discover “someone is sleeping in my bed!”

Lounges are double in size and many include kitchenettes. In this photo, Nancy S. discovered her quad with Julia Scott-Barrett, Mary Ellen Owre, and Dagy Neely had been turned into a lounge.

I went off to find what used to be the Cafe and the tunnels. The Cafe area is now the Health and Wellness center but I was able to find the beginning of the tunnels from Hyphen to Sage. In the video, I say I am under Kellas but I am under Sage. Click here.

Dessert – note the Chinese Chews. It was decided this recipe (from the Fair Exchange) did not taste like the school’s so Gwen shared this.

After dinner we met in the hospitality suite at the Hilton that EW had set up for us. It was a time for more memories, including Liz Beal’s rendering of the alma mater.…all verses!

AFTER THE WEEKEND

From Anne Todd Osborne

So glad you came Barb! I feel so glad so many of us pulled it off and want to keep trying to get together on whichever coast(s). Living on a boat w/ Fred and 2 dogs this week. It seems to be working…Love to all, Anne Todd (Osborn)

From Barb Greenwood

A week later, back from Cape Cod where I was visiting a close friend I met only 2 yr after we graduated; and before Memorial Day is officially over, has me still thinking how wonderful it was to see each of you there at our 50th last weekend, and remembering everyone who make up the class of ’66. I also felt refreshed to reconnect, as Suz had said, and feel so grateful to have made the trip. Surprised also to hear so many stories of teenage angst at EW which I think I felt much of my 4 years’ time there. Also thanks again Kathy for keeping us in touch so smoothly. Would love to connect with anyone who plans on visiting Boston anytime. Please get in touch. Happy summer. Love Barb G.

From Jane Manopli

It was a fascinating and joyous weekend, one in which we shared our memories – often quite different from one another’s – renewed and made friendships, and saw how Emma had been transformed, most probably for the better. There’s a line in an old Paul Simon song the goes after changes upon changes, we are more or less the same. Perhaps that is true, but I think we are certainly wiser, stronger and kinder. A bit melancholy to wonder if our paths will cross again, so perhaps we should resolve to make a stronger effort to stay connected.

And in that vein, enormous thanks to Kathy whose perseverance made it all happen. Kudos.

Love to you all. Jane

From Nancy S

Already I miss you all! And miss those who could not join us!

Like Suz, I “feel younger – sort of refreshed”! But I came away feeling I had just got a glimpse of everyone’s lives and wishing to know each and every one of you better! I think I dreamed I was trying to continue a conversation with Gwen.

Yes, let’s stay connected, and I add my thanks to Kathy for the huge effort of corralling us all.

Love, Nancy

From Susan Atonides Carr

Yes, indeed! I was thrilled to be back at EW and to see you all. A mighty group we were.

But I must admit I did not feel too mighty on the way to the airport at 6am. Thanks, Heidi for keeping me up until 3 hours before I needed to be awake- and then for being sure that I was indeed awake to get to the airport.

Kathy- what a great communications organizer you are- thanks for all the energy you put into it.

I am amazed that I actually feel younger- sort of refreshed, for lack of a better word?– after seeing you all. Strong work-

my love and thanks to each- Suz
