The Class of 1960 came in 3rd in the March4MHC fund raising challenge! Read about it in the recent ‘Laurel Chain’ HERE (and in your email from the Alumnae Association). Lucy Tripp Eubanks and JJ Johnson Spencer thank all of our Class Agents and classmates for their hard work and generosity in stepping up to this challenge. This means that an additional $13,000 will be added to our fundraising total o Mount Holyoke. Congratulations to us, and to Lucy and JJ for being our fearless leaders in this endeavor!!

From Jean Angelilli Mahoney, Class President:
Dear Class of 1960,
On Sunday, March 15 our class board members had a phone meeting to discuss our 60th Reunion plans and how we should move forward. I am sorry to inform you that we have decided that our 60th Reunion should be cancelled. There are many reasons behind this decision, most of which you are all dealing with today. We are discussing ways to still celebrate our 60th in a more virtual way and will keep you posted on what we decide.
Jean Mahoney, Class President
The Alumnae Association is starting to send out important information regarding our reunion (Reunion II, May 21-23, 2020). As it becomes available, I will post it HERE. The first one is posted! Hope to see you there.
Judy Flanders Coon died on February 4, after a long illness. Read more about her life HERE. While you are there, take time to read the lovely poem that she wrote for our 45th reunion. It is printed in full at the beginning of the webpage for ‘Deceased Classmates’.
