Jean Loft Seiler '54 and LFS parent and alumni parent, Laura Matika, enjoyed meeting each other at Stillwater meeting in Sarasota Springs, NY.
"I enjoyed the reunion we had in February 1999 for the classes of 1956 and 1957, seeing the school and some of my classmates again after all those years. I have very happy memories of my school days at LFS, and I continue to be proud of the school as I read about it in the Newsletter."
Dominique Smith '05 visited LFS in June 2016 and bumped into former classmate, Alexander Sena '05. Dominique is beginning her senior year at Cheyney University, a political science major.
Elsa Graitcer Hetherington '59 reconnected with us via Facebook. Elsa remembers LFS teachers Jane, Florence, Mary, Gladys, and Marjorie.
"I want to let you know how much I enjoyed the LFS Homecoming which you hosted in the fall. The hours spent on campus were very meaningful and emotional for me and for my sister, Beth Hague. Lansdowne Friends was for me and still is a very special place; a place of caring, creativity and strong Quaker principles. [...] I needed the influence of Quakerism and our country needs it desperately in these times."
"Nearly retired but still producing the occasional radio story for pubic radio. Living part-time in Atlanta and St. Simons Island, GA. Five grandchildren. "
Margery DeArmond Maconachy '56 writes, " I recall that my dad was often busy on committees at Lansdowne Friends Meeting and my mom, Teacher Virginia, spent years working at LFS. The meeting and school were such a firm and fond part of the fabric ofour lives. LFS is a small gem among Quaker schools and I shall ever be in their debt." Margery and her husband live in Washington.
Priscilla Wyatt Davis '50 reconnected with LFS via the school website. She writes, "I was known as the daughter of 'Mr. and Mrs. Fred'. My father was the caretaker of the school and the Meeting House. We lived in a small two story house on the grounds which was demolished in the early 50's."
Deborah Reeder '50 is a cellist with The Philadelphia Trio, principal cellist of The Opera Company of Philadelphia, member of the Pennsylvania Ballet Orchestra, co-director of music at The Mountains (in Eagles Mere, PA), former member and currently a frequent substitute with The Philadelphia Orchestra, and on the faculty at Temple University.
"I have such fond memories of Lansdowne Friends - in particular Gladys Chilton, Pearl Hoop and Teacher Mary."
