In July Frank Huntress was a duty chaplain in Westminster Abbey. “What a privilege it was to rejoice in the celebration of the queen’s anniversary of her coronation.” * I was saddened by the news of Danny Yarchin’s death. George Rudolph and Danny were roommates, and when George phoned with the news, we recalled how Danny had given us many moments of joie de vivre. George and I reminisced about Colby and our class family. George, now living in Palm City, Fla., will be in touch when he comes to Wenham to visit family. George hopes to get to Waterville to visit the old haunts and especially to see the art collection that Paula and Peter Lunder so generously bestowed upon the College. * David “Sonny” Slater is a trustee of the DeCordova Sculpture Park (about 30 acres) in Lincoln, Mass. Paula and Peter Lunder have been David’s closest of friends since Colby (Peter, Dick Abedon, Alan Landau ’55, and David were roommates at TDPhi). David and wife Barbara share the Lunders’ love of art, although their collection is modest and mostly pop art. They have immensely enjoyed their experiences in the art world. David said, “But whether it is the Getty or the Louvre, no other feels better to me than the Colby museum.” * Tom ’54 and Sue Miller Hunt moved back to Sherborn into a remodeled house that is next door to where they lived for 10 years, until 2004. Their only granddaughter, Eva Hunt, was married in June at the Kent School, where their son, Tom Jr., teaches and coaches. They see the Dave and Rosemary Crouthamel Sortor, Sheila Freckmann Dillon, who lives in Australia, and Ruthann Simmonds MacKinnon, who lives in Jefferson, Maine. * Janet Nordgren Meryweather and Mary Ann Papalia Laccabue and her daughter came ashore from Holland America’s Maasdam Aug. 16. They toured Bar Harbor shops, drove to the top of Cadillac Mountain, and then went home for lunch with Janet’s husband, Steen (Mary Ann’s husband stayed aboard). “What a delightful day we had!” * In June Lucy Blainey Groening and Katie Coon Dunlop joined Bob and Dodi Aikman Adel for an Alaska Inside Passage cruise. The small ship allowed them to visit rivers, glaciers, and smaller ports inaccessible to larger ships. * Sue and Bob Adams still live in Daytona Beach but spend most summers in a cottage in Owls Head, Maine. Their health is good, and Bob plays tennis three times a week as well as pickleball, a great new game for our age group. Bob says, “Hello to any old Zeta Psi friends as I have not really kept in touch.” * Charlie Morrissey joined the board of visitors at the Drucker Graduate School of Management at Claremont Graduate University * Kathy McConaughy Zambello lunched with Ruthann Simmonds MacKinnon as she also summers at Damariscotta Lake. In September Kathy joined her brother on a 19-day trip to Italy with five days in Venice and five days in Rome. * Louise Allen Freedman (who attended Colby for only one year but has husband Howard ’49 and daughter Ellen ’81) attended the opening of the Alfond-Lunder Family Pavilion in June at Colby. * David and Rosemary Crouthamel Sortor, Tess and Jube Jubinsky, Peter and Hope Palmer Bramhall, Kathy McConaughy Zambello, and Chris Layer Larson also wrote about the wonderful events at the Alfond-Lunder Family Pavilion celebration: a champagne reception, tours of the new galleries, a fabulous lobster/clam bake, and the singing of happy birthday to Peter Lunder, who was presented with a huge whoopie pie shared by all attendees. All of this was followed by fireworks and a gift copy of the catalogue of the collection. They all spoke of the graciousness of the Lunders during the weekend. Other classmates in attendance included the Weys, Haggetts, Pughs, Barbara Nardozzi Saxon, and Bill Wyman.
