Mary Irons I've held a variety of jobs since graduation including cabinet maker; nurse; theater actor, producer, and director; children's librarian at the Kellogg-Hubbard; and teacher (to say nothing of parent). I chipped away at my formal education when possible, eventually earning my undergraduate degree from Johnson State College and my masters from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Besides working in the Montpelier area, I traveled throughout New England on theater tours, and throughout Vermont presenting Humanities programs, many in correctional facilities, which was some of the most rewarding work I have done. I've had the opportunity to visit some wonderful places around the world, but am always happy to come home to the Green Mountains. Other than perhaps the highlands of Scotland, I can’t imagine living anywhere but Vermont. I’ve been lucky enough to visit Portugal, France, Scotland, Italy, Switzerland, Sicily, Kenya and Austria. Alan and I have also vacationed several times in Kauai where Alan’s cousin lives, twice with other family members, which were wonderful experiences. Berlin and Calais, Vermont Hmm, I think it was as a clerk in the Vermont State Tax Department – deadly work! I am recently retired from twenty-five years as a part-time literacy scholar for the Vermont Humanities Council, and I still work for the Vermont Arts Council as a Visiting Artist in the national Poetry Out Loud program. As of this writing I am job-hunting, hoping to find that elusive, part-time, flexible, fulfilling position. Ha! I’d love to retire and write full-time, but alas, Social Security doesn’t allow for that luxury. A significant accomplishment for me was earning an MFA degree in Writing for Children and Young Adults in 2010 from Vermont College of Fine Arts. It was a rigorous and inspirational program from an institution that is fast becoming a national leader in fine arts higher education. Another landmark personal accomplishment was through-hiking Vermont's 273-mile Long Trail, with my partner Alan, in 2013 and again in 2017. My partner, Alan Paschell, first came to Vermont to attend Goddard College in 1968. We met in 1978 when I was working as a medical receptionist at the old Health Center in Plainfield, and Alan was part of the carpentry crew building the new center. I had only admired him from afar when I discovered in the center's files that his birthday was the day after mine, same year, so I sent him wine and roses anonymously to see if he might have noticed me noticing him. He had. We have been married for thirty-seven years now. Alan is a potter and clay sculptor. We have one son, Nathan (48); one biological granddaughter, Lillian (8); and two additional granddaughters, Siena (11) and Sophia (6), who were adopted at birth by dear friends, and for whom we serve as honorary grandparents. Our son returned to Vermont with his family in 2014, and now lives in Shelburne, and our adopted family is in Montpelier, so we are lucky enough to have our granddaughters close by for frequent visits to our home in Maple Corner. Alan and I have been avid hikers for seven years now, climbing a mountain every week, summer and winter. We also do a longer backpacking trip of at least 100 miles each year. I spend many summer hours in my garden, and continue with acting, writing, and volunteering with the Montpelier Community Justice Center and the Green Mountain Club. My strongest memories from Main Street Middle School are of playground games – Chinese jump-rope, dodgeball, double Dutch, limbo. I remember when our eighth grade softball team came within a run of beating the high school girls, though we hotly disputed the out at home which robbed us of the run that would have tied the game. Then there were those ballroom dance lessons at the old Montpelier Rec Center, remember? MHS Masque productions were the highlight of my high school years, once Ms. Blankenbeker took over as the club advisor. I was thrilled when she cast me as the grape-stomper in The Mouse That Roared, and one of the mad women in The Madwoman of Chaillot. I also clearly remember typing articles (i.e. cutting stencils) for the Solonscope, the smell of the ink, and cranking out copies on the mimeograph machine. Yikes, not only pre-computer, but pre-copier machines! And who can forget Saturday night dances upstairs in City Hall, the music of the Beachcombers, and the smell of “Canoe” and “Ambush”? In my adult theater career, attending the New Actors Workshop in New York City in 2004, and having the chance to work with the likes of George Morrison, was certainly a high point. I also had many opportunities to work with renowned director Andrew Doe after his retirement from the University of California Santa Cruz, most notably playing the role of Vivian Bearing in Wit at the Flynn in Burlington in 2001. I’m still working on that yet-to-be-published novel! 2018-01-08 13:24:10

Kathy Beloit College, WI, 1968-71 (Elementary Education major); married in 1969. Accompanist for various ballet/chorale/soloists for many years. Earned BA in English Comp & Lit (minor in Theater) at Mt Senario College in upstate WI, 1983. Found my calling at last in theatre costuming, whew! Moved to Mpls to earn MFA in Theatre Design & Tech at U of MN. Began costuming professionally in 1989, and have been designing ever since for nearly every Twin Cities theater. Straight to Belot, WI, as soon as my leg was out of its cast. Allan and I have traveled extensively over the years: to Great Britain, France, Greece (still my fave--that amazing sunlight on those ancient marble buildings!), Italy, Spain, Germany, Austria. All travel is eye-opening, and we took our small boys along because of that (bonus: people tend to open up with kids around!). In Wisconsin: Beloit, Madison, Ladysmith. In Minnesota: Blaine, Coon Rapids (Mpls Metro) No Rehearsal Accompanist, Wisconsin Ballet, Madison Still at it and enjoying myself! Allan's the Visual Resources guy at Mpls College of Art & Design. When we met, he ran the Beloit College Pep Band, and he was in need of a trombonist... Married since 1969 to Allan Kohl, met him at Beloit College where we were both students Son Bryan, 47, video editor for NBC Learn at 30 Rock in NYC. Son Aaron, 41, manager at McCormick & Schmick Restaurant, downtown Minneapolis. Grandchildren: Belen, 11 (Bryan), Jackson, 9 (Aaron) Let's see: Allan and I used to make and set off fireworks for Beloit's homecomings; our house in Ladysmith had a small apple orchard of 11 trees, and I never want to make applesauce again. Bryan and Aaron have completely different personalities and are so much fun. I wish you could meet them! tending flower and herb gardens, Pilates, reading (especially history). Miss Neireiter's fake lecture in Modern European History class: I learned from her never to take notes by rote again, and to question what I heard . 2018-01-30 09:22:16
