Dear Claudia, 

That's helpful as I am not on any K-O mailing list s. I know someone at some point mentioned the actual date, but I failed to put it on my calendar. I could go back through the email, but if someone could post the dates, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

Hi, All -  I wanted to put into writing everything that I know about the schedule so far, hoping that we are close to knowing what we are doing.  Cheers, Claudia 

Hotel accommodations - there are none planned at this time, but Barbara Gross Rucket has a suggestion - the Farmington Marriott (is that right, Barbara?) - we are happy to welcome guests at our house (we have 3 guest rooms - 2 double - nothing fancy) 


Friday night - informal dinner for those already in town - location:  restaurant? 


Saturday -  1.   lunch at Sandy's - possibly preceded by yoga or tennis - Sandy is looking into the facility issues. 

                    2.   KO - has a schedule.  (see KO scheduled events below) 


Saturday -  1.  3 pm Oxford tea at KO (with all classes) - 

                    2.   I am working on an idea for a tea for our class for those who are interested - will get back to you 

                    3.  alternatively, other activities for the afternoon scheduled by KO (again see below) 

                    4.  just us - walk at the reservoir, Elizabeth Park?? 


                   6 pm Photo/dinner at KO - the 50th reunion classes (K and O) will be in Alumni Hall at KO

                              at this time, I have not heard about an alternative plan for the dinner 


Sunday - brunch at Claudia and Walter's (Alana Sobol in charge of food organization) - time? surprise performance?  singing of Jerusalem?  

               quiet time for reflective conversation (Nanny-Co facilitated this at the 25th and I personally liked this a lot)?  baseball (we have a space for

Hello, all - 
   I've worked on trying to get info onto the spreadsheet, expanding it to include Sandy's for Sat. lunch and a column for brunch-bringings.  Barbara is the only one who has switched from KO lunch to Sandy's: Betsy?  Bonnie? Lelly? Nancy? Susan? Susie? 

Thank you for setting up the spreadsheet, Nancy.  For those of us "catching up," this is available to all, and anyone can work on it, highlighting whatever box you want to record anything in.   You access it by using Google docs (most currently available via Google Drive, but before I even had Drive, I could use a shared Google doc.   Its a great way to work together something that is evolving.

I'll be helping Claudia with the Sunday Brunch. As of now six 63-ers are signed up on Nancy's spreadsheet. Claudia has given me her current list of brunch items.  So far Rena, Bonnie and I  have said what we will bring: coffee cake, Greek yogurt, blueberry muffins, bread, "something from whole Foods", and I recall Lelly offering champagne for mimosas.  
Please let me know what you will bring. OJ, fruits, something to spread/put on the bread come to mind. Once I have more info to submit perhaps Nancy could add another column, so it's all in one place. 
Spring has definitely arrived even here in the hills of Hartland where small patches of snow persist defied by crocus and chives. 
Enjoy the delicious air!
