Even More Marvelous, Wonderful Baby News...It's a Boy!
Newly weds, Matthew Elliot Kurlander and his wife Christine Rebecca Lankenau Kurlander (Nightingale '92) welcomed their first baby; John Elliot into the world on August 1, 2008.

The baby was born by biological conception.

Perhaps you remember Matthew, who graduated with the class of '92. Without any doubt the greatest Tennis player to ever grow up in Chappaqua, he now directs every Nike Tennis Camp in the country, helping administer the next generation of American Tennis players, gifted or not talented.

Matthew and Christine's gorgeous baby arrived at 8 pounds and 1 ounce, the exact same weight as the Prince Heavyweight 03 Speedport Platinum OS+ pro tennis racket with the Air Bridge Twin Morph Mega Yoke used by noneother than USTA #94 ranked, Filippo P. Volandri. Coincidence? don't be absurd.

Matthew's proud parents celebrated the birth of their Grandson with some fresh picked lemons.

May the Christian God, the Jewish God, the Catholic God and several other Gods and other mythical creatures bless their new family for a long, healthy, and happy life together.

Wedding Announcement
Jennifer Stromberg '92 recently got married to Alex Butson of Brooklyn in Marco Island, Florida. The beach wedding was attended by fellow Quakers Mitch Greenberg '92, Steph Sobers '92, Susie Sklar '92, Dan Weissledder '92 and, of course, Vinnie Tavolacci '90. No, Vinnie doesn't still drive that same '91 Silver Saab.

Mr. & Mrs. Matthew Elliot Kurlander
On Saturday, the fourth of August, in the year of our Lord: Two Thousand and Seven at Clermont State Historic Site in Germantown, New York; Matthew Elliot "Pecker" Kurlander (class of '92) married his once and present love, Christine Rebecca Lankenau on a green bluff overlooking the majestic Hudson River.

The Best Man and in many ways, the best of us all: Stephen Alec Weinberg, also of the class of '92, used nothing less than mutant-like agility to oversee and instruct the wedding. Matthew first met his bride while attending the Horace Greeley High School and fifteen years later reunited with her to all of our benefit. The ceremony also saw fellow Greeley alums: Levi Sokol, Mara Curtis, and Dave Seeve.

And now, let us hold hands, bow our heads, close our eye lids, and say out loud or to your self: A Shaker Hymn

'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free,

'Tis the gift to come down to where we ought to be,
and when we find ourselves in the place just right,

'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

When true simplicity is gain'd,
To bow and to bend we shan't be asham'd

To turn, turn will be our delight,
Till be turning, turning we come round right.

The Quakers would be proud or not.

I got married!
I married Eric Conner on November 15th in Wilmington, DE. Eric and I met at Penn in Spanish class, but took almost 9 years to actually start dating. At the wedding were many Greeleyites including '92ers Kathy (Tilzer) Simon (bridesmaid), Jessica Anenberg, Marni (Wasserman) Bernstein, Judy (Levy) Battaglia, Eric Sharfstein and Brad Corr ('98). And of course my sister, maid-of-honor, Rachel Zaslansky ('94) and brother, groomsmen Michael Zaslansky ('98). Eric and I live in Los Angeles and are always look forward to our East Coast friends coming for a visit.

It's a girl
She may be small when it comes to size...but she's the queen of the cutie pies! Kaitlyn Alexandra Lane was born May 18th at 1:45 AM, 2lbs, 13oz, 16in.

A little premature but she is doing fine. Kaitlyn is still in the NICU waiting to grow big but will be home around her due date (7/8). Donny and I can't wait to have our little girl home.

Here We Go!
Greetings from the south!...no, not Cuba...Boca Raton, but its close enough. I say we follow in the footsteps of our fore fathers (class of '90 -'91) and schedule our 10 yr. in NYC during Thanksgiving weekend '02. Lets get the ball rolling. Lots of people have flight bookings and reservations to make, including all 50 or so of us who moved out west to Boulder, Co. Start talking about that weekend, and maybe we could cause enough buzz to get something going. Mark your calendars, sync those watches. See you there!

Hey all. I just discovered this website by accident, and was really excited to see some people I haven't heard from in years. I just got back to the States this month, after working in SE Asia for the last year. Is there any way to track Greeley Alumnus that may have been employed in the World Trade Center Buildings? Please let me know if anyone has any information. Thanks!
