Reunion Update Form - What Have You Been Up To?

Please use the space above to update us on what you’ve been up to since your last Reunion. If this is your first Reunion, a summary of what you’ve been up to since graduation would be very welcome. Updates are appreciated, especially if you’re not able to attend in person. As a guide to writing your update, think about career or retirement updates, awards/honors received, family updates, hobbies, travel/adventures, etc. Please keep your updates to 5-6 sentences (maximum) and write it in the 3rd person. An example pulled from the Plymouth Magazine Winter 2022 edition: “Mary (McMullen) Thompson ’75 majored in elementary education and was part of Delta Zeta, Plymouth Players, Polyphonic Choir, and Percussion Ensemble. After graduating she was an elementary school teacher and married David G. Thompson ’77. The Thompsons have been married for 43 years, have five grandchildren, and are enjoying retirement in Harrisville, NH.”
