A new grouping of Ecolint Alumni came together in South Florida last year, with the 2015 Miami Escalade Dinner kicking off activities in that part of the world. Eduardo Torres (LGB '78) and Annath Vardi (LGB '71) were the organizers for this year's Escalade Dinner. Here's how Eduardo reported it on the Ecolint Alumni South Florida Facebook Group:

"Music blared, wine flowed, alumni reminisced.

Despite the loud music, we all tried to regale each other with stories of the past year and our lives after Ecolint. Denise Dunager and her husband of two years, Scott, hit the dance floor since avoiding the decibels was not an option. We also met Annath Vardi's new beau Emilio. Did I mention the music was loud? I found out Lourdes Thomas Leahy's husband Jonathan was busy playing keyboard with his New Wave group Pealing Autumn in Boston during the years I lived there. He met Lourdes at one of his gigs in Buffalo. He didn't want to refer to her as a groupie, but then he did.

We welcomed South Florida newcomer Aytac Boduroglu who found out about our group just days before the event. My personal favourite, was when new parents Celine Hakoun and her husband Micheal showed us pictures of her son Enzo dressed up as Hercule Poirot this past Halloween. Enzo was 3.5 months old. Hysterical and adorable, despite the loud music.

In the end, we all had so much fun we decided to do something to celebrate the Fêtes de Genève in August! And no live music!"


Despite five last minute cancellations, there were still ten alumni in attendance, plus guests in most cases. The alumni who attended were: Annath Vardi (LGB '78), Linda Johnson (LGB '75), Denise Dunager (LGB '75), Behdad Azadi (LGB '75?), Hamid Shantial (LGB '76), Eduardo Torres (LGB '78), Yonca Atayolu Ables (LGB '84), Celine Hakoun (LGB '94), Lourdes Thomas Leahy (La Chât '83), Aytac Boduroglu (LGB '82).

There are many more photos on the South Florida Facebook Group.
