Tom Hale ’86

Preparing for another awesome Thacher Rocket Launch at parent’s weekend is keeping the whole Hale family busy this month. We’re so excited to head to the Gymkhana field early sunday AM to launch some 5′ rockets into the morning sky. Between building, painting, and organizing Karen, Ivy, Anna, and Tom (1986) are keeping very busy […]

Tony Thatcher ’85

Greetings from Bozeman, MT! It’s been a busy year for me as I start to ramp up a new business building and repairing guitars, mandolins and ukes. A shameless plug for Mountain Whimsy Guitars (www.mwcustomguitars.com). I’m still making maps and doing GIS analysis, mostly associated with rivers and streams. During a fabulous early fall camping […]

My daughter Elanor’s academic advisor this year is another Thacher graduate, Nick Tranmer (’92). And a steady stream of more […]

Frederika Howe Toll ’94

We know how to drive a tractor now and are currently installing fencing which proves taxing when you live in the limestone Hill Country of San Antonio, Texas. We are anxious for the ponies to arrive! Nate continues to work at […]
