We had a good winter in Florida but received little news from classmates. * I was exciting for us to watch our granddaughter, Jessica McNulty ’07, run in the Boston Marathon. Jessica completed the race in respectable time and was cheered on by many of her Colby classmates and friends. She ran all the way, and Heartbreak Hill did not slow her down. She is a much better runner than her grandfather, who usually managed to finish last in Colby track events. * In a welcome and substantive letter, Harvey Koizim wrote: “What a long way we’ve all come since that bitterly cold, snowy ’44 winter in Hedman Hall. Pushed into college too early, I was just 16, and the only child of immigrant parents. I just didn’t know what to do, and everything I did seemed to be a very bad mistake. But, hey, I got over it—almost—and grew to be a responsible citizen—almost. In addition to the 20-year-old son, I have two children from an earlier marriage, ages 60 and 56, and a couple of grandsons: 28 and 24—all of whom are living productive and successful lives. With the help of time at sea in the Merchant Marine, I was able to come about, return to Colby, pick up a good education, make some lifelong friends and have a pretty good time. Very best to you and all the folks left from the Class of ’48.” * Ronnie Farkas now lives full time in La Jolla, Calif., 25 miles north of the Mexican border. The climate is ideal. Both Ronnie and Selma love it. They live in new digs high on a bluff overlooking the ocean with a spectacular view! Ronnie wrote, “Our hobby is playing bridge. We play in a tournament once a week and also play a lot of social bridge.” He reports they are both enjoying good health, considering age and wear and tear. * Dorothy Worthley Cleaver still lives on the Kennebec River, where she enjoys canoeing and fishing. She wrote, “I have a wonderful little springer spaniel who fills the bow and cheers me on. I spend every day I can out from under a roof and wonder still at the amazing beauty of our state and support any effort to keep it that way.” She has grandchildren that graduated from Swarthmore, Amherst, and the University of Vermont and is still working to get some of them to Colby! “I have an amazing and lovely family who visit Skowhegan a lot and keep me young at heart. The grandchildren of our generation are surely the hope of the world.” * Betty Dyer Brewster was packing for a trip from Naples, Fla., to Charlottesville, Annapolis, Providence, and various places in R.I., Conn., N.H., and maybe Colby, then to Memphis for six months. Her brother, Richard Dyer ’42, turns 70, but she didn’t think they’d make reunion, although both are in relatively good health. One of her granddaughters set a record for 400-meter hurdles for the University of Tennessee and was off to the NCAA meet and Olympic trials. She graduated summa cum laude and won scholarship for graduate school. Betty enjoys life and is happy to be near her three sons in Tennessee and Georgia. * We regret to inform you that Aaron Sandler passed away in Chicago June 3. Aaron had a great personality and was universally liked by the Colby community. He was a star on the track team and a member of Tau Delta Phi fraternity. He participated at our wedding ceremony as a witness to our marriage and signed the certificate. Although he lived for many years in both Michigan and Texas, we kept in contact. After he moved to Sarasota, we were able to visit. We will miss him.
