In November 2019, roommates from the ’70s traveled by catamaran to the British Virgin Islands. Barb Whitaker Reeher and Bruce Reeher, captains and co-owners of the vessel, brought along Dawn Miller Lisi, Karen Basile O’Hara, Margie Clark Poeppelman, Caron Thomas Sharp, and Jack Sharp for the weeklong adventure. All members of the Class of ’77, they left their mark in stone—spelling out IUP and leaving a cairn, or stack of rocks, on the beach.
