Class Notes

’55er Potpourri

November 28, 2016


Hello classmates. This note and those submitted after October 1, 2016 and before January 1, 2017, will be printed in the Spring 2017 edition of the Deerfield Magazine. Notes are also posted beforehand on our website, within a few days after they’re submitted. You can submit a note directly from the 1955 website. I’ll also be glad to forward your digital photos to Deerfield if you prefer to email them to me as attachments to your note. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. Of course, consulting with a 13 year old neighbor across the street is your best solution (Ha) .
An interesting story in the October issue of The Deerfield Scroll announced that Karl Sabo and Jane Howard will step down after 30 years as Innkeepers of the Deerfield Inn. Jane added, “We’re going to take a break in Spain, in a consulting job for a European hotel chain. We’ll be back to our home in Deerfield in nine months to a year.” Keep in touch with school activities via The Scroll online at or subscribe by contacting or calling (413) 774-1434 .
Y’all must have accomplished a couple items on your Wish List by now ( I won’t refer to them as Bucket Lists anymore ! ) An inspiring trip to Alaska was high up on our list. It was posted on our website as The Eighth Wonder on Oct. 16, 2016. We would enjoy hearing about your “15 minutes of fame” adventures, too, and vicariously share them with our classmates. May you have an upbeat rest of the year, and may your 2017 be ushered in nicely as well.
