Sharing, during the time of COVID, seems impossible! We can’t share space, a meal or even a smile. We are distant, we’re masked and often alone. But it’s never been more important to share whatever and however we can.
To that end, some classmates are working with our Class Correspondents to use the final “published” Class Notes in the Cornell Alumni Magazine’s last issue as the platform to share our COVID epiphanies, experiences or discoveries. Here’s how, from Jodi Sielschott Stechschulte:
How are you coping with COVID? The past 11 months have been an extraordinary global experience. We would like to collect your stories of how you have handled the changes it has caused in our lives. What have you done about work, play, family relationships, friendships, pets, travel, etc.? Have you found any innovative coping mechanisms or created any new traditions? In the face of incalculable global loss, how have you kept going?Please send your experience(s) to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ’74 COVID Response. We’ll share them with classmates via our Class Column and other Class of ’74 communication channels to be developed in the coming months.Hoping to bring us all some inspiration and perseverance to get us to the end of this pandemic in 2021 with our sanity and sense of humor intact.
There is a publishing deadline of February 15th so get your stories in soon.
Some of our fellow Classes of the ’70s are sponsoring fun webinars that are open to our class.
Reminder: Great Cornell Concerts of the ’70s: Music and Memories, a webinar by Corey Earle, is being sponsored by the Class of ’78. It’s Sunday, January 31, at 7:00 pm ET. For more information and to register click here.
The Class of ’72 has invited us to their sponsored webinar Persevering Through the Epidemic: Cornell and Typhoid in 1903. This is scheduled for Tuesday, February 2, at 7:30 pm ET. Find information, suggested reading and register here.
Our class has been actively participating in the Cornell Global Mixers and has a ’74 Pre-Party Suite where over 50 classmates have visited with each other. These mixers happen every two weeks alternating between Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons. The next one is February 6th. Details and registration are here. And follow them on Facebook here.
So classmates let’s share!
And please be well!
