On Saturday, November 14th, 2015, I attended the 125th Anniversary event for the New York Wellesley Club (NYWC). The NYWC’s first meeting took place on December 13, 1890, just eleven years after Wellesley College graduated its first class of eighteen women. Today, the Club serves 2,700 alumnae in the city’s five boroughs. NYC’s First Lady, Charlene McCray ’76 kicked off the day with NYWC President Brooke Bryant ’03.

On Wednesday, September 30th, 2015, 97-year-old Tao Porchon-Lynch shared her wisdom and light at a special event entitled “There is Nothing You Cannot Do: Tao Porchon-Lynch on Oneness & Secrets to Vitality” hosted by the Harvard Business School Club (HBS) of New York. It was held at the UJA Federation in New York City. Open to the public, not just Harvard alums, the event was moderated by Courtney Reagan of CNBC with special introductions from Barrie Moskowitz of the HBS Club (HBS ’92) and Tao’s biographer (HBS ’92) Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy. Som Chivukula was also instrumental in making the event happen. As usual, Tao wowed the crowd with her amazing life including stories of marching with Mahatma Gandhi and helping Jews escape the Nazis during World War II. Always with a sense of humor and a bit of mischievousness, Tao had the crowd laughing and in awe.
