55th Reunion is Coming!

After celebrating “Our Odysseys” for our 50th, we will be “Embracing Our Futures” leading up to our 55th Reunion:  May 24-26, 2024.

There will be multiple opportunities to share and explore pathways of creative energy, empowerment, and inner strength in body, mind, and spirit as we journey ahead.  Among them:

  • a reunion issue of the Grécourt Review (Smith students’ literary review from 1957-1997),
  • a class-wide collaborative Renga,
  • an evolving program  to support the reunion theme of well-being and
  • a Virtual Art Show at Reunion Headquarters featuring your art works!  Planning is underway, so watch this spot or contact Ellen Kierr Stein, the curator, here.

DEADLINE EXTENDED! Send your submissions for the Reunion issue of the Grécourt Review by OCTOBER 20!  Details here.

You can help!

We are eager to have you join us in this adventure!  We especially welcome volunteers to help with these aspects of Reunion:

  • helping with our on-campus Class Reunion Headquarters.  Jean Krogh, HQ chair, welcomes help with advance planning, HQ set-up and greeting classmates when they arrive.  Email Jean here
  • planning for the Parade.  Linda Sosnowitz is starting to brainstorm wonderful signs for us to carry in the parade; join the fun by emailing Linda here.
  • organizing an informal pre-reunion get-together via zoom or in person.  (We call these get-togethers “Reconnects” and you can see what’s happening by selecting “Reconnects” from the menu at the top of this page!)  If you get together with other classmates, let Sue Herrick Foley know here.  Pictures are welcome.
  • proof-reading submissions to the Grécourt Review,
  • assisting the program committee and
  • sharing your ideas about how we can make our 55th truly memorable.  We’d especially like to know what events/activities at previous reunions were especially memorable for you.

Reach out through our reunion email account with your input, questions or offers to help:  Reunion Info

Your hard-working 55th Reunion Chairs are Gale Eaton, Ellen Matzkin, Rosa Leader Smith and Margi Wittigschlager Nareff.
