Five ladies converged on Washington, DC, on the weekend of November 17–19 to celebrate a Big Anniversary—50 years, no less! This wasn't the first reunion of the PG'67 class: Susan Lo Forti and Ruthie Bowman Russell also enjoyed reconnecting in Lugano in June, and a dozen alumni got together in Moab, UT, at the end of September.
The All-Class Reunion at the Smithsonian Castle on Friday provided a perfect appetizer for the weekend, followed by the main course on Saturday at La Chaumiere, a favorite French restaurant in Georgetown. As Maudie Glore said, "It was a great weekend and we all just sort of fell into our TASIS talk."
Maudie brought her beautifully prepared album of photos to share, and Renee Dodson Ranson (better known as Sandy when at school) had the commencement booklet and other souvenirs. Along with the scanned albums of Rick Standish's photos and the 100-page travelogue prepared throughout the past year by Jay Noyes and Andy Dodge, which Alumni Director Yvonne Procyk had on her computer, these provided many jumping-off points for reminiscences and fun memories.
Everyone agreed it would be great to get together more frequently, and the TASIS Alumni Office wishes to thank everyone who worked to reconnect the class over the past year or more, with special thanks to sleuths Jay and Andy, who found numerous classmates whose info was missing from the School's database.
