Reunions came and went--several East Bay alums made the voyage back to Northampton for days of nostalgia
and (re)meeting friends.
Smith alums (and one current Smithie!), family, and friends bundled up to watch the Oakland
A's vs. Cincinnati Reds for a surprisingly exciting and high-scoring game on Wednesday, June 9th. Thanks again to Lynne for
organizing the event.
Book club met on Wednesday, June 23rd to discuss Play it as it Lays by Joan Didion at Kate Funk's house.
Thanks, Kate, for hosting!
We had a great hike and BBQ potluck on Sunday May 16th! Alums from Smith, Penn, Columbia, Harvard, plus
friends, family, and dogs trudged up and down the sometimes-steep Rim Trail Loop around the Lafayette reservoir, then relaxed
in the luxury of the Girtler's patio, eating pasta salads and chatting around the grill. Many thanks to Andrea for suggesting
the idea and hosting the afternoon!
Thanks to Lynne for mailing us our tickets to the baseball game!
