A group 70th birthday party?
At the Sunday picnic, several classmates were talking about possible future reunions when an idea blossomed.

I am married and live with my husband, David, in East Lansing, Michigan. In Nov. 2011 I retired from the Legal Office at Michigan State University after having worked on campus since 1981. Dave and I have 3 children, Melissa who lives with her partner, Rachel, in Portland OR; Jennifer (1966) who died in an automobile accident Nov. 1992; and Jacob who lives with his wife, Emily, in Mountain View, CA. Melissa teaches pre-school in Portland's Japanese immersion school, Rachel is an artist and also has a framing business--framing art for other artists and galleries in Portland. Jake is an acupuncturist--having had a practice in Northampton MA before relocating to California with his wife Emily who is a new faculty member at Stanford University. I attended Radford College, and Michigan State University where I earned a BA and MA in English. We have 4 grandchildren, Saiming (12) and Anli (9) who were adopted from China and live in Portland with their moms, and Indira Wren (who died 3 days after birth) and Maia Rose (2-1/2 yrs). I have done a lot of traveling since retirement--my biggest trip was a 2 week trip to China with Melissa, Rachel, Saiming and Anli to visit the children's birthplaces. This past winter I spent two weeks in Alaska with friends to experience the Iditerod and enjoy other Alaskan adventures. (My friends' nephew has participated in the race for several years). And just this past August, I drove with my son Jake to Mountain View--Emily and Maisie flew out--to help them get settled in their new town. My husband is also retired (faculty at Michigan State University and more recently Psychotherapist in private practice) and, among other things, we enjoy spending a lot of time in our cottage on a little lake in northern Michign.
