From Kathleen Cavanaugh:
Thanks to the members of the
Class of 64 who responded to my Internet call for news.
I swapped e-mails with Janice
Whitfield Landis, who reported that she and her husband, John Landis 65,
own and operate Vynecrest Winery, just west of Allentown. Jan is president of Lehigh
Valley Wine Trail, a nine-member winery group. The Landises Web site, www.vynecrest.com,
has more information on their wine, which is sometimes sipped at Moravian events.
You never know where a Moravian
education will take you. It has taken Alan Zelt all over the world, beginning
with the U.S. Navys flight program at Pensacola Naval Air Station and Air Intelligence
School in Denver; then to Vietnam as part of Gen. William Westmorelands intelligence
staff, followed by a three-year assignment in Hawaii. Alan is currently executive vice
president of Keytech Corp., a specialty chemical company. He travels the world but calls
Seattle home. He and his wife plan to retire to the south of France, where they want
to open a small restaurant between Perpignan and Narbonne.
Then there are Kathy Zanelli
Bednar and her husband, Bob, who went on a three-week, six-city European concert
tour with 150 high school students. Bob conducted; Kathy did the bed checks.
For the past four years, Bruce
Coull has traveled to Chernobyl, Ukraine, where he directs a project as part of
his work as dean of the School of the Environment at the University of South Carolina.
In May 2000, he started a program in the Philippines to train engineers in sustainable
environment techniques. As Bruce says, the environment is everywhereand a Moravian
education will take you there.
Ron dePaolo reports
that Andy Semmel, William Horwath 65, and he spent the week after
Memorial Day fishing together in the majestic lakes of the Mississagi River system of
Southwest Ontario. Ron says college degrees, even advanced ones, add little to the wisdom
quotient of some adults when it comes to fishing. But the three are still friends and
plan to return next spring, with larger supplies of bug repellent and sunburn lotion.
After retiring from teaching
in the Southern Lehigh School District, Craig Borst is busier than ever as the
educational technology specialist at Moravian Academy. Craig also hosts several programs
for RCN, a local cable TV system in the Lehigh Valley. The trolley takes him (figuratively)
to Kennebunkport, Maine, where he can be found operating antique trolley cars at the
Seashore Trolley Museum. Craig is one of my double classmates; I hope to
hear from other members of Bethlehems Liberty High School Class of 60.
It turns out Pat Schillinger
Hensinger is practically my neighbor, just eight miles away in Woodbury, N.J. We
have some common interests: Pat is on the board of the Gloucester County Historical
Society, and one of my clients is the Gloucester County Cultural and Heritage Commission.
Molly Krater Dinnen retired
after 35 years of teaching in Orange, Conn. Shes now a docent in the dinosaur section
of the Peabody Science Museum, a docent in Colonial costume for local historic house
tours, a volunteer at Yale Universitys Center for British Art, and a reader for
the blind on the radio.
I hope many more long-lost
classmates will surprise me with an update on where a Moravian education has taken them.
