Class of 1997 Summer 2022 Class Note

Hello, Class of ’97!

I never would’ve imagined 25 years ago that I’d currently be in the middle of converting an 80-year-old building into Greenwood Lake Roasters’ second location and celebrating five years in the coffee roasting business. A crazy but very fortunate ride given all the variables. It’s been way too long since I’ve been to Orono! I hope to see Chi Omega sisters as we belatedly celebrate the sorority’s centennial in September, and you as we celebrate 25 years at Homecoming, during the weekend of October 14-16. What are you up to? Whatever it is, I hope you’re well. Email me at or via Facebook Yolanda Sly Kozuha.

Congratulations to Jeffrey N. Schweitzer, EPA, CEP, ATP, RTRP of Northeast Financial Strategies for being named Wrentham’s 2022 Alignable Local Business Person of the Year for the second year in a row! The online referral network for small businesses recognized local business leaders who’ve gone above and beyond to help peers and community through a turbulent year with many challenges: skyrocketing inflation, labor shortages, supply chain problems, and COVID variants. “In our tight-knit community, you almost always get back what you give,” said Jeffrey. “And the challenges we’ve all encountered have compelled many of us to offer counsel and other support to peers struggling to keep their businesses afloat.”
