Good-Bye Dinner for Dean Horne
Well, we had our day-long, year-end faculty meeting yesterday, the last faculty meeting to presided over by our beloved dean and friend, Martha Horne. At 6:30 last evening, Catherine and I went to the annual dinner at the deanery to bid Martha good-bye as she transitions out of her official duties. Ian Markham will be in the dean's office at the beginning of August. The faculty presented Martha with three different sorts of gifts. She surprised us, in turn, with gifts for each of us of her own. Each of us received a silver-plated mint-julip cup with an ingraving of Aspinwall Hall and a personal note to us from the Dean.
