Co-Leader Reunion

Juanita Watt
Los Alamos NM USA
From: LEAVEN, Vol. 40 No. 3, June-July 2004, p. 63.

When I first came to Los Alamos, New Mexico, USA in 1979, I was welcomed by my two new co-Leaders, Barb Barnes and Jeanette Meadows, who lived next door to each other. Soon I moved into a home around the block from them. As friends and neighbors, we co-led the Los Alamos Group together and we were joined over the years by Leaders Sue Piltch, Andrea Patterson, Marsha Brown, Anna Burrows, and Morgan Light. In 1986, Barb moved to Virginia, USA. Eventually, I also left the Group to start one in a neighboring town, while Jeanette stayed with the Los Alamos Group (joined by Leaders Kelley Baer, Ulrike Schreckenbach, Susannah Rousculp, and Gina Peterson). Now, for the first time since Barb moved away, the three of us got together again when Barb came to Los Alamos for a visit. Here we are, eighteen years older, a bit grayer, and with grandchildren (Barb’s and Jeanette’s) around the ages our children were when we first met. But we’re still in LLL and still co-Leaders in spirit, if not in geography.

Alumnae Trip to Georgia

From November 11 through November 14, 2004 the Alumnae Association of La Leche League is sponsoring an excursion to Savannah, Georgia, USA. Stroll through Savannah's squares under the live oak trees; meander from one end of the historic district to the other; pass historic homes, houses of worship, shops, and galleries. Visitors to the city get to soak in the history and culture and sample the sumptuous Southern fare of Georgia's oldest city.

The group will be staying at the Courtyard by Marriott in the heart of the historic district across the street from the Savannah Visitor's Center. The trip will include two dinners, a lunch, a guided tour, as well as admission to several attractions and the theater.

For more information, and to request a registration brochure contact Phoebe Kerness, 137 Spinnaker Walk, Savannah, GA 31410 USA; call 912-897-9261; or write to pjmkdd at aol.com.

Watch for more information and details about the trip in the next issue of LEAVEN.
