Hard to believe you’ll be reading this column in 2019! Time flies. It’s still October as I’m writing this, and Homecoming Weekend at Dartmouth is about to begin. Eleven years have passed since we paraded around campus and ran our 11 (or 111) laps around the bonfire!
Jen McDonald wrote in with a wonderful update about her recent engagement in early October. She wrote, “After a couple trips to the old lodge to help with the new bunkhouses and hike other N.H. mountains, Peter Johnson (UVM ’11) and I got engaged this month on the top of Mount Moosilauke. I had initially thought that the momentous relationship milestone of the weekend was simply our first Moosilauke hike together! We’re also currently working on hiking New England’s 100 highest peaks and would love to catch up with any of you next time you’re near Burlington, Vermont!”
Thomas Lane and I saw Jenny Zhao and Roger Zhu a few weekends ago when they were visiting Los Angeles. Jenny loves animals, and they visited the Shambala Preserve in Acton, California, about an hour outside of L.A., which cares for big cats that used to belong to circuses, zoos, or private owners. Before Jenny and Roger left on their flight out of LAX, we had brunch in Venice and visited the canals, inspired by the Venetian canals in Italy, that were just around the corner!
Amanda Trunzo was recently quoted by The Boston Globe in an article about Fenway Park hosting an extreme winter sports event, the ice cross downhill course, in February. Amanda is the reigning women’s ice cross downhill world champion, and she played hockey while at Dartmouth.
Write me with your updates! How far have the ’11s come in the 11 years since we first arrived at the College on the Hill? And where will we be in another 11?!
