June 2016

On to Celebrating our 55th since 6-6-66

June marks the 55th anniversary of our 6-6-66 graduation from Swarthmore. Since the College has deemed conditions too uncertain to allow us to gather on campus, we will be celebrating the occasion this spring via a variety of virtual events. We have already held a successful Zoom social on Groundhog Day and will be hosting March 4 at 8 PM EST a discussion on Zoom of the recent documentary The Boys Who Said No!, about anti-draft activism in the late 1960s, co-produced by Bob Levering and featuring interviews with Michael Ferber and Bob Eaton. Bob, Michael, and Bob will be joining us for the discussion on Zoom March 4. Please register through this link swarthmore.alumniq.com/go/TheBoysWhoSaidNO and watch the movie before the discussion starting on February 24 at https://www.boyswhosaidno.com/swarthmore

Our reunion planning group (Tom Riddell, Dare Thompson, Jill Grubb, John Wehmiller, Bob Levering, and Jody Williams) is setting up some kickoff events in January.  The Alumni Office will provide Zoom support for activities and events, which can range from “academic” affairs (talks or panels) to social gatherings (cocktail hours, book discussions, cooking classes), to artistic endeavors (displaying artwork, play readings, and musical performances).  We can use breakout rooms, in which people can come and go.  We want your ideas.  So far, some classmates have offered to share art exhibits on YouTube and on our Class website. Please let John Wehmiller < jwehm@udel.edu> know if you would like to contribute to the exhibition. We’ll set up an evening concert and dancing time by Freebo and his playing partner Alice Howe who create marvelous harmonies together.  Let us know what appeals to you and even what you might like to host.

Our class website (Swarthmore66.com) remains a good place to be in touch with each other via its private messaging when you don’t have a classmate’s email address. Check out also swarthmore.edu/alumni.

We want to remind you that our 50th Reunion Class Gift of the Class of 1966 Summer Internship and Mentorship Fund is still growing at just over $181,000 with a goal of reaching $250,000. You are encouraged to contribute to it along with your annual giving to the Swarthmore Fund.Each summer the Class of 1966 Fund pays Swarthmore students who mentor members of the Chester Children’s Chorus participating in the Swarthmore Science For Kids program. We will soon be updating you on CCC activities, some of which you can see in the video from its 25th anniversary gala from last summer. Great to know that our activism in Chester in the early 1960s can manifest today as support for the children in this community program.

Please contact me (508-336-4244) and others on our committee if you have any questions or suggestions. 

Looking forward to seeing you at one or more of our events this spring.

  Wednesday FREEBO concerts

 I am doing a weekly online streaming show called “INSIDE LIVE with Alice & Freebo," every Wednesday at 5 Pacific, 8 Eastern time. It’s a very cool show, we've gotten excellent response, 20 episodes so far, and some great special guests each week. 

   Here’s a blurb that might well explain who we are and what we do:

On “INSIDE LIVE with Alice & Freebo", acclaimed songwriters and accomplished musicians Alice Howe and Freebo feature weekly musical guests for a writers-in-the-round concert and musician-on-musician interview. Freebo is a genuine folk, rock and blues icon who, after over 40 years of recording and touring with many of the great artists of our time (Bonnie Raitt 10 years, CSN, Maria Muldaur, John Mayall, Ringo Starr, Dr. John, Neil Young, & many more) is regarded as one of the most gifted singer-songwriters of today. Singer and songwriter Alice Howe is a rising voice in modern folk and Americana whose music is a contemporary love letter to 60s folk and timeless blues. Her critically acclaimed debut album, Visions, was produced by Freebo. Together they will take you behind the scenes and inside the music with some of the world’s most iconic and talented musicians, songwriters, singers, and recording artists in rock, roots, blues, Americana, and folk.  

Peace, FREEBO
