Meet Smith ’21ers This Summer

New opportunities to meet and connect with ’21ers this summer. We’re coordinating with two ’21ers who will share ’71 summer contact info with their classmates so that any ’21er who wants to can reach out to one of us wherever they/we are this summer.  (The contact info is protected so that it can’t be downloaded, printed or copied.) This is open to any and all ’71ers whether you did or didn’t sign up for the “mentoring” project.  There’s no limit to the number of ’21 friends you can have! If you’re interested, please sign-up here asap.

House Reps

Now is the time for a few good women to help us build a system of House Reps.  We need just one (or a few) volunteers in each house to encourage housemates to come to our 50th – those who have never been back or come only rarely. It’s a great way to re-connect with housemates, find lost classmates and there’s no direct fundraising piece to it. Think how much more fun it would be if you had your own gang of friends there to celebrate our 50th! Click here for more info and to sign up or contact  Annie Nickel Curtin or  Donna Smerlas

50th Reunion(!) – May 2021

Sandy Cate and Sarah Peskin are working on our 50th reunion class book. There are many options for such a publication, and if you have ideas to share or would like to help with the project as it evolves, please let us know. Classmates with editorial or publishing skills would be much appreciated!  Meanwhile, Sarah Koffman Mantica and others are brainstorming a class video. Click here for more info.
