Our Virtual 60th Reunion – June 3-6, 2021.
Virtual Reunion Parade (Saturday morning, segment of our class)
Comments from our chairs, Anne Gagnebin Coffin and Mary Tison Wheeler:
We are thrilled to welcome members of the great class of 1961 to our 60th Reunion! We have an exciting program ahead of us organized to connect us with Smith today and with our friends and classmates. Faculty lectures, a tour of the new Nielson Library, a fascinating talk by Jessica Nichol, Director of the Smith College Museum of Art, will be interspersed with our own class of ‘61 events: a Class Meeting led by our dedicated and spirited President Betsy Carter, a report on our Class Questionnaire by Deborah Heller, a Class Tea, and an illustrated talk, A Brush with History, given by our distinguished classmate Carolyn Kinder Carr about the collection of the National Portrait Gallery where she served for many years as Deputy Director and Chief Curator. Break-out rooms, question-and-answer sessions as well as our Class Tea will provide opportunities for conversation and reconnecting with classmates.
