1975

From Eileen Oechsli Bohigian: "Mark your calendars for June 4 to 6 now for our 35th reunion! We have secured the College Camp for our Friday-night gathering. It will be a casual evening to catch up, get re-acquainted with old roommates or dorm neighbors, eat, have a drink, and relax. The Camp has been renovated recently and looks great! The 10 years since our big 25th have passed quickly. For that reunion, our class had the most successful reunion of any class from the '70s. Let's try and repeat that success in 2010.

Contact us: Eileen Oechsli Bohigian (emoquilt@aol.com), Linda Cote (ltc4kids@juno.com), Frank Easton (fbeaston@aol.com), Dianne Reidy Janson (diannej@maine.rr.com), and Donna Kuethe (recgoddess@myfairpoint.net).

"We'd like to do a slide show. Please gather pictures, old and new. We were thinking of a 'then and now' section; even if you aren't able to duplicate the 'scene' from the 'then' picture, sending a recent picture with the same people would work just as well.

"This time we would like to add a memories section. (While we can still remember them.) We'll decide how to display them when we see how many we get. We are also working on an online update survey; more details will be forthcoming. Please open the mailings you get from the College about Reunion; we'll be sending information that way as well."

Diane Rasanen Burnett is the cross-country assistant coach at SMS in Peterborough. The girls' teams came in first place in the state meet.
