Program Updates


Program Chair Ginny Gotlieb is putting together some wonderful offerings, including a fantastic line-up of short talks by your very own classmates, two of whom are pictured below. If you are interested in sharing your passion, please get in touch with Ginny Gotlieb right away at vmgotlieb@gmail.com.

Also, in a less structured way, we will be able to enjoy each other’s company and have fun, comparing notes on BMS, posture pictures, and more with the help of our recently re-discovered “Freshman Handbook” that laid out the rules (that changed in a flash!).

Keep your eyes open for new program updates on our Private Class Facebook page. If you haven’t already done so and would like to join, please contact Social Media Chair Beth Sobiloff at beth@birchwoodenterprises.com.

Calling All Musicians

If you are a musician and would be willing to play at the “In Memoriam” service on Sunday morning in remembrance of our deceased friends, contact Kate Sonderegger at KSonderegger@vts.edu.

Class Survey

Whether you are coming to Reunion or not, we’d like to hear from you. We would appreciate it if you would fill out the Class Survey by May 1st, either online or on paper. Click here.

Be Counted

Please don’t forget to make your contribution to Smith before Reunion so it can be counted toward our Class’ 45th Reunion gift. Every gift makes a difference to Smith’s future and counts toward our Class participation goal. Click here to give.
