There is a lot to write about, so I’ll get right to it. Candace Orcutt Ph.D, enhancing her career even further, presented at her third conference on personality disorders at the Psychotherapy Institute in Istanbul. Candace’s book, Trauma and Personality Disorder, has just been published in Turkish. * Allan van Gestel is “still standing,” but I would venture to say that he goes further than that! He has a very busy arbitration/mediation law practice at JAMS in Boston. Al will conduct an arbitration in Hyderabad, India, and then testify as an expert witness on Massachusetts contract law in Cypress. Living in coastal Rockport, Mass., is a great change of pace. * In early June Rose Stinson Ebsworth and her husband drove around our beautiful Colby campus. Rose was amazed at the many additions of harmonious new buildings. They also toured the Perkins Arboretum and found many bird species there before returning to a wet and chilly July back home in England. * Here’s a challenge for any couch potatoes among us: Lucy Pickles Haworth recently climbed Mt. Washington via the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail, “a very challenging but scenic hike with its many waterfalls.” Staying overnight at the Lake of the Clouds AMC hut was a wonderful experience in itself. The next day, Lucy (and I don’t know how she could climb out of bed) hiked along the ridge from Mt. Monroe to Mt. Eisenhower. * Don Dinwoodie took his 14-year-old grandson to Barcelona last summer as a rite-of-passage trip. Life on the ranch hums happily along and Don is not retiring from real estate in the foreseeable future. * In April Marilyn and Tom Brackin attended Tom’s marine helicopter squadron reunion in Branson, Mo., which has become the music capitol of the country. Wonderful Southern cooking and hospitality! * Fifty-four years had passed since John Conkling skied at Sugarloaf, and the amazing changes there caught him and Nancy by surprise. The mountain they knew back in the ’50s, with two t-bars, has been transformed into one of the most magnificent ski resorts in the country. * Andy and Wendy Dorman McIntosh celebrated their 50th anniversary by spending the month of August in Scotland with their kids and grandkids. Wendy says it’s good to travel while they can—she and Andy are off on a photo trip to Kenya in October. * This fall Dick and Perk Perkins Canton will spend a few days in Moscow, then take a riverboat adventure on the Volga River. * Linda and Don Tracy, having traveled extensively in the U.S. and abroad, find that life on the coast of Maine, with all the activities (sailing, kayaking), beats everything. Don sold his tax practice and now has more time to enjoy his five children and families who live in Maine, including a “great-grand.” * Buddy Bates sends a big “thank you” to those in the Class of ’57 who participated in this year’s Colby Fund. We raised $72,000 with a participation rate of 71 percent, a record for our class. Special thanks to Bill Slade, Art Smith, and Colette Piqueres Greenwood for helping with this successful campaign. On the personal level, Buddy and his wife, Connie, are as active as ever and enjoy the cultural opportunities in Aspen, Colo. Spring and fall visits to Addison, Maine, are a real treat too. * It never ceases to amaze me how our class has come together and the response for our column gets stronger and broader. Guy and I are so pleased to be a part of unifying our terrific class! Thank you for your responses. Some of your news came in too late, but it’s “at the ready” for the following issue.
