So sorry about John’s passing. He was one of eight folks I had the honor of both attending Belmont High and Tufts University! RIP

Was sorry about John, too. But very glad to see u at the reunion. He was one of five guys from Belmont high to attend Tufts ...Joe R, Dickie W, Byron H and Ron A. We had three ladies from Belmont attend Tufts... Mary T, me and Holly H. I keep in touch mostly with Byron and Ron and have recently connected with Mary. Joe and his brother had my mom in elementary school. Joe’s brother died last year. Take care and be well.

Hi again.... was only asked by three people .. for complete verbal CV.... I sang them ... We conn. I also now refer them to the bio that some Brown award group posted about 10 yrs ago, my bio in the new 50 dollar 50 year book( guaranteeded to get them more sales of that master work.... suggest if we don’t digitize it at least give a copy to the library PLEASE, or my bio as delivered by myself when I accepted the honored student award from the American Oil Chemists Society ... for the absolute brilliance of my preliminary HNRC thesis data, my master!s thesis at Brown on THC is more fun reading though. Let’s see,for reading... Dr Boxer’s web page and Dr Pelham’s list of publications will just make u eat your heart out! Dr Constantine’s comes in a close third to those followed by Dr Lassucq’s !!! Please post yours if u r up for a contest. I am not the best scientist in the class but yes Agnes I am published and was really a biomajor at Tufts ad well as a few other things. After all I did list for u all the bio courses I took undergrad... but it was so noisy...maybe I should mail u an old transcript.. I still have a few old purple smudged ones!!! They also list deans list, Goldkey and The Coveted Freshman English Prize ... which was books that I claimed yrs later for one of my grad degrees expensive reading courses! Oh well back to APAP and our decluttering project/ my grandniece said it all.. throw or give Aunt Deirdre but don’t take it with you! Love that kid!!

Hi Sherrill.. I sadly only requested that the alumni relations digitize the yearbook... they said they were unable to do this... sadly. Just read your request for digitizing today. Great minds think alike. My husband and I also have to cut back as poor retired scientists! Hope to see you soon to catch up. Also sent a general post, in case there was any misunderstanding.. that it was only a request to them. Beautiful spring!

Apr 22, 2019 at 1:45 PM

The alum relations stated that they were unable to digitize the yearbook for all. They stated that there may be a few copies on sale for the remarkable price of only 50 dollars at the welcome desk.
They can also be ordered after the reunion. Alum relations cancelled the final meeting of the reunion committee but promised to provide us with an email of their final details of our reunion. Sounds like they appreciated and listened to our many suggestions and really made us feel involved in their hard work. Hope to see you soon. Happy Easter and Passover season, if you and yours are celebrating, and happy spring. I am sure you all remember the John Holmes’ poem, which began ... Spring on the Hill!!

Deirdre Good Rees/ 50th reunion committee member/ we will have a reunion committee wrap- up meeting ( just mentioned by alum relations) after the reunion. Give us and them your feedback!

Dear Friends,
1. The crocci are up and my insertional Achilles tendonitis is down enough for me to hobble off crutches!
2. So, since I am the only member of the reunion committee who has attended the meetings in person... I am pleased to put my foot in it by offering
you these three gestures to enhance your reunion experience: FIRST ..as promised I will be carrying around at all times during the reunion.. my Jumbo suit.. and for a contribution of any size to Tufts, I will gladly put it on and pose for a picture with you and yours ( only no pictures will be taken on or near the newly stripped cannon); SECOND..the Reunion Within is happening and if any of you want to meditate, do Tai Chi, Kung Fu, Yoga or Reki at anytime during the reunion..just call or text me at 617 947 8196 and we will arrange a time and place for as many as will.. again for a contribution of any size to tiny TU; THIRD, I will gladly sing one verse of Dear Alma Mater ( We Con Beside Thy Knee) to anyone of you before, during or after the reunion... for a contribution of any size to the College on the Hill.. this offer is limited to a five mile radius of Tufts;,LASTLY I have requested that digitized copies if the 50th Reunion YEARbook be sent to all reachable classmates..again for a contribution of any size to TU... to entice you to purchase a 50 dollar hard copy of the book... which I hope will be available at the welcome desk near the longsleeved t’s.... and in case you don’t want the 50$ (just one dollar for your every year away from Tufts) one... I will again for that small contribution cut out a page of your choice of my treasured yearbook.. and pose will it and you in my Jumbo suit!
3. I hope u appreciate my fun, whoops fundraising efforts.
4. Remember this is not a hoax.. this is your 50th Reunion.
5. You have my number and the email is: rees.deirdre@gmail.com.
6. Love, Pax et Lux... ever true!
Deirdre M Good Rees Tufts’69 and y guess the other year!

Hi friends!!!
1. Crocci up and my degenerative Achilles stuff is calming enough for me to impishly wobble without crutches!
2. Well, I have one more reunion committee meeting and since I am the only one who has attended these in person...I am going to put my foot in it again with two more lively additions to your reunion:
Yes, tell your children, grandchildren that I will be carrying my Jumbo suit with me to all reunion events and you need only ask and I will put it on and pose for a picture ( none near that newly stripped cannon.... that is where I draw the line)!; and yes, we will be holding the Reunion Within .. rain or shine.. for anyone who wants to meditate, do Kung Fu, Reki, Tai Chi or Yoga etc .. just buzz my cell phone ( 617 947 8196) ... and I’ll come runnin just to see u again!! We will find a nice spot on campus for spiritual activity for as many as will!.
3. If you want both the pose with elephant and the Reunion Within there will be a nominal dollar contribution to Tufts!!!
4. These events can be arranged if u are not going to the reunion for a 2 dollar Contribution to Tufts.
5. I have also proposed that the 50th YEARbook be digitized and sent out to all internet reachable classmates... for a contribution of any amount to Tufts. This might entice you to buy the $50 version ( one dollar for your every year away from tiny TU). I hope these will be available for sale at the welcome table! If you don’t want to buy the real thing, I will gladly cut out any single page of my 50th Reunion YEARbook...and pose with u and your page in my Jumbo suit! ( again for a contribution of any amount to dear Alma Mater!
6. My last and final fun, whoops I mean fundraising attempt for Tufts is that I will be happy to sing you and or yours at least one verse of We Con Beside Thy Knee ( Tufts official song) ... at anytime during, before or after the reunion... for a contribution of any amount to Tufts.
7. I love u all. You have my number and rees.deirdre@gmail.com.
8. This is no hoax folks... this is your 50th college reunion!
9. God bless...Pax et Lux...
Deirdre
( ps I am now totally deaf in my left ear...so,sadly,you will have to address me softly from the right.. hence the elephant suit... God, she took the wrong ear)
