Greetings from the northwest corner of Connecticut. Sue Johnson recently spent time on a 10-day Road Scholars trip in the Canadian Maritimes. At home, she continues her involvement with lifelong learning classes, dance performances, and concerts at James Madison University’s new arts center. * Bob Fraser received a parachute jump for his 80th birthday from wife Lin, who, for his 70th birthday, had given him an hour-long duel in a T-6 WWII airplane he flew in pilot training in 1954. Once out the plane’s door, Bob’s reaction was, “It’s damn cold, and maybe I AM crazy.” The drop started at 14,000 feet with a 9,000-foot free fall. * Frank ’53 and Judy Jenkins Totman took a marvelous trip to N.M., visiting Carlsbad Cavern (“an amazing place”) and White Sands National Park. Judy had a one-person exhibit of her pastel paintings at Great Bay Community College in September. * Colby “Judy” Thompson Lowe has traveled to Georgia, Michigan (to celebrate the big 80th), N.Y.C. (“just to be there and see a ballet or two”), and California (to celebrate Thanksgiving with daughter Meg). * Vic Scalise spent two months in Ocean Park, Maine, seeing family and friends. He attended the annual KDR lobster bake at the home of Al and Mary Ann Pilon Obery. Helen Cross Stabler, Evelyn Bryant (wife of Joe Bryant ’53, who died in 2011), Ron ’55 and Ellie Turner Swanson, and Bill ’53 and Ann Eilertson McDonough ’55 were there to enjoy the feast. Throughout the summer, Vic has preached in seven churches in Maine, Mass., and R.I. Summer’s end will be celebrated with an Alaskan cruise. * As of Sept. 1, my new address is 52 Undermountain Road, Salisbury, Conn. 06068; phone: 860-435-9778; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. My big news, however, is that on Aug. 21, I shot my age at the Southwick, Mass., country club.
