Elizabeth Coombs Myers is delighted to report that her Colby granddaughter, Lauren Corke ’10, is a Peace Corps volunteer in Ghana teaching art to deaf children as well as computer skills to others. She’s thoroughly enjoying the experience and the new friends she’s making. Since this has been Lauren’s dream for a long time, Elizabeth is very happy for her and proud too. Elizabeth was delighted to have lunch and a wonderful afternoon visit in Chatham, Mass., with Nancy Semonian Newlove ’49 in August. She wrote, “It’s good to be in touch with Ali-Rie March Miller, Jan McKenney Murphy, and Deanie Whitcomb Wolf ’49. How I do miss New England!” * Selma and Ronnie Farkas took a 12-day cruise down the Baja, leaving from and returning to San Diego. They’re considering a barge trip on the Columbia River in Oregon next fall. It’s been a good year for them: illness-free and hope to stay that way. They now live full time in La Jolla, Calif. * Dot Worthley Cleaver still lives by the beautiful Kennebec River, even after her husband, Chuck, passed on last year. She takes good care of the house, boat, canoes, fishing gear, truck, and snowmobiles. She can’t ski anymore because of a dropped foot but enjoys seeing children and grandchildren using all of the above. She writes poetry and books for her grandchildren, paints a little, and takes part in politics. She writes, “I’m thankful for the blessings of Colby and retired life in Maine and especially for 60 wonderful years with Chuck. He wrote me an amazing letter before he died, so I’m doing what he hoped I would do and am neither lonely nor sad. Aren’t you all glad we lived when we did?” * Aaron Sandler lives in Chicago now. His son, Matthew, made the arrangements. He lives at The Hallmark, a nice retirement building on North Lake Shore Drive. He’s on the 28th floor with a great view of the lake, marina, and all the boats. He writes, “I’m feeling well and hope it continues. Guess I’ll have to get used to the weather. It is going to be different from Florida.” * Carol Stoll Baker plans to be at Singer Island in Florida this winter. Last winter we had dinner with Carol and Frannie Hyde Stephan as they treated us to a celebration of our 60th anniversary. It was good to see them so vibrant and beautiful. There was much conversation about our classmates. * Howell Clement says he has snow, but it’s not deep yet. He notes that our aches and pains are the price we pay for a long life. It takes him about 30 minutes to get things loosened up every morning. * Our granddaughter, Jessica McNulty ’07, will run in the Boston Marathon in the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge. She’s busy training and soliciting donations for this most worthy cause. Jessica is the daughter of our daughter, Deborah Marson ’75. We keep busy in Jupiter with visits from the family, golf, and socializing with members of our club and our Colby friends who winter in Florida. Dorothy is active in representing our community in Jupiter by being the chair of the government liaison committee.
