Arnold Plotnick

Arnold Plotnick ’81 says it had been 35 years since these friends had all been together. So they rented a house in Woodstock, N.Y., — traveling from as far away as Atlanta, Santa Fe, N.M., and Portland, Ore. — and spent five days barbecuing, hiking and reminiscing. “We turned out to be a fairly accomplished bunch: one veterinarian, one anesthesiologist, two lawyers, a chiropractor, a chemist and a financial officer. But we’re all still crazy!” Plotnick says.
