For 20 years I lived in London with my British husband, Lewis, and our three children. It was an interesting experience. We took every opportunity to drive to somewhere, anywhere in Europe, with the kids in the back seat. I was very glad to return to the U.S. ten years ago when Lewis got a position at Dartmouth College. We now live in the Boston area and I work as an Alzheimer’s program director for an assisted-living community. (Last update 4/15/07.)

She was a former member of the Point Pleasant Junior Woman’s Club where she made many lifelong friends. Christine was an avid gym goer. She also loved going to the beach and boating with her husband. Her greatest joy in life was spending time with her family and her friends in both New Jersey and Florida.

I’m divorced after 19 years of marriage and have two great children to show for it: Justin, 27, a civil engineer building million-dollar homes in Mahwah; Nicole, 25, teaching grammar school in Glen Cove, NY. I’m currently engaged to a beautiful person, Maria, and she couldn’t make me happier. We live in Montville, NJ and have a vacation home in the Poconos. I worked with my father and my three brothers for 28 years in a successful furniture business and have now settled into a position at Federated Inc. I’m lucky enough to still have my health and have kept a strong relationship with my brothers and several close friends from grammar school. That’s right, grammar school. KUDOS to Dave, Toby (Bob), Rich and Bill. I’m so looking forward to the Summer Dinner, the 40th Reunion, and seeing everyone I can. My best to LHS 68.

I went straight to art school in NYC after graduation. From NYC, I moved to New Haven, CT, to complete my undergraduate studies in social work (my family relocated to CT in 1969). I lived all over CT for three decades – my compliments to Ellen Lenox Smith and the whole reunion team for finding me after 40 years – while working as a Medicaid Eligibility Specialist for the CT Department of Social Services. In 1995, I finally settled down in a small 17th century village, in the lovely Litchfield foothills of western CT. I have a spectacular view of the western skies, and keep a telescope for watching the seasonal sky shows. I’m more into photography than drawing these days, but still take the occasional art class. I’ve aged – haven’t we all – but I really think that classmates who knew me 40 years ago will recognize me now. I’m really looking forward to seeing the Class of ’68” on 09/20. Cheers!

Let’s keep it mysterious for now!!! Married, a son in med school in AZ, a daughter in college in MA. Husband builds aerobatic airplanes in Southern AZ. I used to be a technical illustrator for Learjet, owned a candy and ice cream shop and taught Special Ed kids, which I loved, until a few years ago, when a spinal operation fouled me up! Now I’m a lone mountain woman in the North woods of AZ!! Have travelled the U.S. and various countries, but never got back to my homeland, Australia… yet…. Save the rest for the reunion!!!

Living in Connecticut now 32 years. Divorced. Three grown kids: Greg 32, Heather 31, Drew 27. Heather is married, with two kids of her own (8 and 2), both I adore. I have near-term hopes for the two boys since they both have significant others. Worked for a major helicopter manufacturer all these years engineering and building flight control systems. Presently working to launch a revolutionary new aircraft by the end of the year. Constantly thinking about retiring and doing volunteer construction work. Missed the last reunion but I am looking forward to the 40th, hopefully, if I can get away. (Last update 4/18/07) 40th Reunion attendee.
