No need to stop after you’ve tricked and treated. Complete the weekend with other Smith alums at a virtual aural and visual telling of the harrowing story of the hangings of the witches in Connecticut. Predating the more famous Salem witch panic by more than 40 years, this story continues to haunt the present-day imagination!

Yersinia pestis, the plague bacterium, has emerged at key moments in history. Join us for a discussion, relevant to our time, of how pandemics due to a single bacterium swept the world three times - in antiquity, in the Middle Ages, and at the turn of the twentieth century - affecting different societies but triggering similar responses, changing the body politic!

CLUB ANNOUNCEMENTS

PECAN SALES: A SMITH TRADITION

pecans-1

For more than sixty years, Smith College clubs around the country have been selling Georgia pecans at holiday time to raise money for college scholarships. Dorothy Lobrano Guth '50 started this fundraising effort for the New York Smith Club about fifty years ago.

The NYC Club continues to offer the three most popular selections: Mammoth halves, milk-chocolate-covered, and dark-chocolate-covered. Additional varieties (such as cinnamon, glazed, or clusters) are available by special request.

These pecans make a wonderful holiday treat and as always, the net proceeds go to the Smith Scholarship Fund!
