A farewell tea party was held by The Madeira School of McLean for Robin Nelson after 12 1/2 years of service.  Although she was "only" the Health Center's administrative assistant, everyone knows that admin assistants are the wizards that make organizations work.  Robin thanks everyone in the many offices she worked with for their friendship and good company facing both hard deadlines and many tough salad choices at lunch.  

In case you don't know, The Madeira School is a beautiful high school on high bluffs overlooking the Potomac River.  In most schools, the girls do the homework, but the boys dominate discussions, which tends to dumb down classrooms.  Madeira has solved this problem at its source, by eliminating the boys.   To meet our girls, boys just have to get into some great colleges, where they'll eventually find most of our girls.  The Madeira School accepts boarding students and has a student body that is diverse across race, class and many of the world's countries.

Both the Living Room in Main and the CA (Chapel-Auditorium) look out over the Potomac River valley with stunning views.  When the school invited all staff to join the Board of Directors for dinner 28Sept07, Autumn was in her last glories and I snapped this view.
