Mark Lennon: Finally displaying a flash of the intelligence that Dartmouth gave him credit for many years ago, Mark Lennon has disentangled himself from his townie wife and has wisely become the consort of classmate Victoria Smith.
Mr. Lennon and Ms. Smith spend much time exploring for black diamonds and seeking out peaks vertical and horizontal.

Suzanne Patton Wallace: 2008 has already been an exciting year.
After being made a partner in my hematology-oncology private practice group, we rapidly found a dream house 15 minutes closer to my work and church with gorgeous mountain views from the screened porch and breakfast room.
We already have a nearly 2 1/2- year old son, Matthew John, adopted from Guatemala (home at 5 12/2 months old), who is an absolute delight.
After a long process, we have just learned that on 2/26/08, we will bring him home a "little sister" from the same country (at one year old, this time).
My husband, Bruce Wallace, is a full-time dad and part-time missionary-in-training.

the environment at the 30th reunion, and wanted to let folks know that this particular 78er has
had the distinction for being so out there on the sustainability lifestyle front that she and her family were
selected to appear on the reality TV program "Wifeswap."
I exchanged places with a mom from North Carolina who spends $100,000 per year pampering her six house dogs, and whose family owns five SUVs for the three of them. The mom from that family came to our home in our Eugene, Oregon, eco-village where we grow most of our own produce, live on less than $10,000 per year, and ride our bikes around instead of cars. I could send a copy of the August 2007 episode east if folks might be interested to see it at the reunion.
I've been giving workshops on "global warming", "green economics" and "permaculture for the inner landscape," and have
