Beyond Suffrage: A Century of New York Women in Politics

On November 12, 2017, we went as a group to the Museum of the City of New York to learn about the history of women’s political activism in NYC. Seeing how women in times past used their voices to institute change was both inspirational and instructional. Thanks for all who came and made it a successful event. 

Back to School Brunch

Starting the year off right, we had a wonderful Back to School Brunch at Casita nestled in the West Village. We had great discussions and a compelling keynote and talkback about the value of the liberal arts and well-roundedness in the world today with Professor Valerie Barr, the current department chair of Computer Science at Mount Holyoke. 

Thank you for all who showed up.

Love and Light: Vespers 2016 held at St. Bart’s

Beloved Mount Holyoke tradition, the annual Vespers concert was held in New York’s St. Bart’s Church in Manhattan on Friday, December 9th. Co-hosted by the Mount Holyoke Club of New York and the Alumnae Association, this year’s concert was themed Love and Light. The concert, once again, featured the candlelight processional as the Glee Club entered the darkened church while singing a Gregorian chant, followed by performance from the various choral groups as well as the Bell Choir.

The Honorary Chair of the event and special guest President Sonya Stephens was joined by Mount Holyoke Club of NYC President Lynette Rizzo ’96 in welcoming guests at a reception before the event. Once again, Vespers was powered by the incredible hard work of Co-Chairs Tara Mia Paone ’81, Abigail Wolff ’82 and long-time volunteer LaVida Dowdell ’74. We can’t thank them enough for the incredible evening.
