potluck, and celebrated the Chinese New Year with firecrackers, mah jongg,
and food. We are now looking for events to hold in the summer; send suggestions
Chicago area Reed alumni gathered in February at a bowling party at Waveland
Lanes. Fifteen Reedies and a few significant others attended. The bowling
was, for the most part, not very good (Gil was the best), but everyone
had fun and all are looking forward to the next event. If you are in the
Chicago area and want to be on our email list for future gatherings, email
David Perry at bonzodman@ aol.com
or Juliet Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spring events included a show by folk dance group Balkanarama and a garden
club seminar by Lucy Hardiman, a national horticultural consultant. The
chapter spearheaded alumni involvement in Renn Fayre in April and will
be coordinating a weekend at Camp Westwind for the fall. The chapter head
is Robin Tovey '97, email@example.com.
The Rainier chapter was pleased to welcome President Koblik to
the Experience Music Project in Seattle on April 25, when alumni and friends
enjoyed a reception and a chance to say farewell to the outgoing president.
Earlier in April alumni served meals to about 100 homeless people at a
Seattle church, coordinated by Marta Smith Franzen '77. The Reeding Group
continues to meet monthly and enjoyed a particularly lively discussion
of Vikram Seth's The Golden Gate in February. Also popular are
the monthly brew pub outings sponsored by the Reed College Urban Brewing Experience (RCUBE),
led by Erik Spekman '91 and Jim McGill '70. Newcomers are always welcome
at both groups, and schedules are available at http://eephus.com/rainierchapter.
The steering committee is working on plans for a theatre outing, as well
as the annual summer picnic. Check the web
site or call Barb Carter Radin '75 at 206/ 523-2484 for more information.
The chapter book group meets monthly, usually in the afternoon
on the second Sunday. Alumni visiting from out of the area are invited
to call ahead for particulars, read the book, and join the discussion.
The annual chapter picnic is planned for September, probably the 16th,
though final arrangements had not yet been made at press time. For information,
call Robert Hadley '53 at 310/391-1427 or send email to BobPatHadley
