During her stay, she was able to see her friend Arlene (Boshes) Hirschfelder ’65 for the first time since 1965. Vineeta writes, “It was truly wonderful to meet a person who had played such a major role in helping me settle into an unfamiliar milieu through her enormous support, compassion and understanding. It was so easy to chat with her, even though more than a half century had passed, and good to meet her spouse, the wonderful Dennis. I lead a semi-retired life but still serve as a director on a health-care industry board and on the executive committee of the Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative.” Vineeta hopes to connect with her friend Robin Dee Post soon.
