    Reunion Memories: Catching Up with Classmates

    Emily Magnus '88
    Hugs of surprise and delight. Long conversations on the Quad. Memorial services for treasured classmates. Reunion is both a weekend to rejoice and celebrate as well as to remember and reflect. With over 100 alumni returning, some for the first time since graduating, it was a joy to see so many friends of Holderness on campus for Reunion Weekend. The festivities began on Friday night with a welcoming reception at Biderman's Deli in downtown Plymouth and continued on Saturday with convocation and several opportunities to learn more about the school's current plans and future goals. On Saturday afternoon, while some alumni played golf, hiked the nearby mountains, and visited the brewery of a local alumnus, others chose to stay on campus, catching up with classmates and former teachers. Of course, the highlight of the weekend was dinner in Weld Hall with all alumni present! While we weren't able to be in all places, photographer Gus Noffke captured many special moments. His photos can be found in the Holderness Smugmug Gallery.

Also included in the article, which focuses on raising adventurous kids, is some great advice from ultrarunner Anita Ortiz, who also happens to be the mom of Holderness Chinese teacher and running coach Amelia Ortiz.
