Not much news this cycle. Please send your updated addresses to the email address above so you can be included.

I still enjoy tennis and traveling to see my kids and grandchildren in California. My son was to go to Germany with his family in December to teach at the NATO Weapons School in Oberammergau, so I will spend time in Europe as well as California the next
few years.

Margaret Cobourn John saw Bill and Trudy Kitchin Kohl in June. Trudy and Bill have moved from their son’s home near Raleigh, N.C., to an apartment closer to her rehab place. For someone who was told she would probably never walk again, Trudy has proven the Baltimore doctors wrong. Going to rehab five days a week, four hours a day, with unbelievable determination, she can walk several steps with a walker.

While in Virginia, Meg and her husband saw Barbara Hagemann Hester and hubby Ben, then headed to the Outer Banks to spend time with family. Phyllis Rodrigues’ daughter in California had a second son this year. They visited Phyllis in Massachusetts in July. Phyllis is winning the bionic award for our class after having had four joint replacements; she needs both shoulders replaced! Ann Moser Garner retired in June after 32 years as secretary at King William High School. She plans to spend more time with her grandchildren, ages 9, 7, and 3, in Alabama; volunteer at Memorial Regional Hospital; and travel. She is also a support volunteer for Cancer Hope Network and the R.A. Bloch Cancer Foundation.

Louise Stevens Robbins lost her sister, Donna Stevens Boyd ’62, in October. She traveled to China in July to help conduct a workshop for the Evergreen Education Foundation and planned to visit Virginia in late summer or early fall. Penny Partridge Booth spent the spring helping her sister, Pam, who has had serious medical issues. Penny also played soccer grandma for a few weeks after daughter Lisa lost her nanny. In August, Penny went to Canada with friends and planned a European river cruise in the spring with her sister.
