Alumni association chapters
The Boston chapter had a busy summer.
We toured the newly renovated (and gorgeous) Boston Public Library, taking
in the art and architecture. We witnessed an incredible Red Sox win against
Texas in sweltering August heat. We hiked in the wilds of Vermont over
a weekend and canoed down the Charles on a perfect late summer day. Now
is the time to get your recipes together for our annual holiday potluck
The Chicago chapters summer meeting was
a picnic at Ravinia, summer home of the Chicago Symphony, where we listened
to a concert by soprano Dawn Upshaw. Planned for the fall event was
a gathering in October at the Mars Gallery, owned by Peter Mars 82.
Winter and spring gatherings are not yet planned, but will probably
include either a bowling party, an ice-skating event, or tours of either
Argonne or Fermilab. To get on the email list, or to volunteer with
planning events, send email to Chantal Sudbrack at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The New York City chapter has assembled a steering
committee and is beginning to plan events for the next year. We will
be communicating with the chapter members mostly via email, so if you
would like to be on the list send your email address to Aaron Kennedy
at aarkennedy@ earthlink.net.
If you have any other questions, comments, or resources to share, please
email Amy Ulrich at rainydayfilms

About 30 Seattle-area alumni gathered for the
Rainier chapters annual picnic in August, enjoying mostly sunny
skies, great musical entertainment, and terrific potluck. In September
over 60 alumni and friends attended a Seattle Mariners baseball game,
an outing sure to be repeated next season. Monthly Reeding Group and
brew pub gatherings continue, and we are looking forward to a lecture
by math professor Joe Buhler 72 in mid November. For more information,
call Barbara Carter Radin 75 at 206/523-2484, or send email to
