April 2009 Archives

What are you going to do tonight? Well, I am going to one of my favorite events. It is the Art & Music Departments Gala. 5:30 start in the Paresky Center. It is one of the many many many end of the years events at Simmons. Like last week's Senior-Faculty Banquet, pictured above. Gotta tell you there is a feel-good exhaustion that overcomes me, like having run a marathon (never did, never will), when all this comes to an end. Sweete sweete music Friday May First 7 pm Alumnae Hall, me serenaded by 3 Simmons vocal groups. ...............................The Art & Music Liaison cordially invite you to attend a sophisticated night of art, music, and creative writing!

Doors will open at 5:30pm and the first performance will be at 5:45pm.

There will be a student art exhibit, musical performances, and readings from Simmons students.

The Gala will also be raffling/auctioning exquisite student art work for $10 a ticket as a fundraiser for next year's Gala and other cultural activities on campus.

Proper Dress Recommended

PLEASE BRING YOUR FRIENDS! Simmons, Alumnae, Outside of Simmons, Family, and Neighbors are welcome!

GSLIS's Alumni Day will include a toast to Professor Allen Smith, given by President Dan Cheever at 3pm on Friday, April 17 in the Linda K. Paresky Center. Allen's wishes were to not have a memorial service. He was a long time member of the highly dubious and highly unofficial Breakfast Club. Highly. All are most welcome to attend.

Did I mention that I dropped into David's lecture on Hamlet? It was just the first part. I really wanted to see him and his last class on The Bard of Avon was in the fall. I'm sure I mentioned seeing him act over the years. His Final Lecture was a tapestry woven from the history of Simmons and the memories of things past. I could have made a photograph out of one hundred hugs. A clumsy, bumpy, bumplingly video of the event may be found at
