Last year we broke our all-time attendance record with over 900 Alumni Weekend participants. With your help, we can break that record again!
Evelyn (Hagstrom) Bowers ’51 tells us she and Beth (Reed) Cupp ’51 took a road trip in September which included “wonderful visits with Marilyn Miller Taylor ’51 in Forest, Va., and Marian Solleder in Colfax, N.C. It was great fun to reconnect, catch up and share memories of our Hiram days.”
Noel Holland ’51 reports he is enjoying retirement and just returned from a 3-week trip to his wife’s home town of Gothenburg, Sweden. They had “terrible weather but had a wonderful visit.” His second son who is a commander in the United States Navy got married.
Richard Hoeh ’52 and Lorrie (Bencina) Hoeh ’55 report that Richard is still fishing and is active in a local land trust. They keep busy keeping up with six grandchildren and their various activities. Lorrie works two afternoons a week in a local library, is active in drama through Senior College and notes, “spinning yarn and knitting some keeps her very busy.”
Betty (Smith) Green ’53 says that music is still a big part of her life and that she is teaching piano, playing the organ, directing church choir and hand bells, directing the Madison Chorale and a recorder ensemble. She has seven grandchildren to visit so she keeps pretty busy!
Alison Hubbard-Miller ’56 reports she and her brother, David Heym ’53, enjoyed his 60th class reunion. She said their visit to Hiram “was of course nostalgic but better yet, was an experience and a refreshing and exciting approach to higher education.”
Margaret (Baker) Wente ’55 tells us she “recently downsized to a pleasant apartment” close to her home of 40+ years. She is in a retirement center and busier than ever with previous and now new friends and activities. Her son and his family live close by as well.
David Keymer ’58 says he didn’t act in 2012, but he has directed a play (“Three Days of Rain”) and staged two play readings for the Prospect Theater Project in Modesto, Calif., where he lives. He published or posted 160 reviews – books, music CDs, plays – in 2012, and 80 more by end of April 2013. On a trip to Cleveland in March, Dave met up with Mary Ann (Gander) Perry ’60, and says seeing Howie Ludlum’s ’58 name in the alumni notes left him nostalgic.
