What a wonderful 40th reunion! More than 160 classmates and guests returned to Brown for a weekend of renewed acquaintanceships, shared memories, intellectual stimulation, and traditional pageantry. Highlights included a class seminar held after Saturday’s luncheon and class meeting. Speakers were William S. Simmons, senior vice president for academic outreach and affiliated programs; Kathryn Spoehr ’69, executive vice president and provost; and Janina Montero, vice president for campus life and student services. They shared exciting plans for the University in the twenty-first century.

Saturday night’s class dinner at the stylish Café Nuovo gave us a preview of the "new" Providence, which we experienced again on Sunday at WaterFire and the waterfront festival. Our traditional Sunday clambake, once again hosted by Libba and Paul Choquette at their beautiful home in Warwick, R.I., was better than ever. Monday morning saw a goodly number of classmates march down College Hill in the truly spectacular Commencement march.

Finally, the following class officers were unanimously elected: Timothy Hennessey, president; Mary Birdsall Cervoni, vice president; Margaret Durham, secretary; Richard Adams, treasurer; Cheryl Lampe Tennille, reunion chair; and Edwin and Barbara Jones Nichoson, class liaisons to our national scholar. Congratulations! To welcome and help the new officers, we formed an emeriti committee consisting of myself, Sheila Boberg Delhagen, David Hogarth, Ed Nicholson, and Caroline Cole Cornwell.

As outgoing class president, I want to thank everyone who worked so hard on this reunion, including Paula DeBlois ’89 R.U.E. and the rest of the staff in alumni relations. Also, we would never have achieved our record-breaking class gift ($2.9 million as of the reunion) without the indefatigable 40th reunion gift committee, directed by Kristina Franco at the Brown Alumni Fund. I’ve really enjoyed the past ten years as class president, and I’m not going anywhere – please contact me anytime you’re in Providence. I’ll see everyone at our 45th! –Becky Hill Eckstein

If you are willing to buy a house, you will have to get the personal loans. Furthermore, my mother usually takes a bank loan, which is really useful.
