Judy (Ingram) ’60 and Doug Hatfield’s oldest granddaughter is a freshman in college at… Bates! This fall the Hatfields cruised the Columbia and Snake Rivers with Peter ’70 and Linda Marsh Foss ’70 and had lunch with Wendy McWilliam Denneen ’60 and Kay (German) ’59 and Al Dean, as well as enjoying a Colby weekend with Ted and Liz Boccasile Mavis ’60, Charlotte Wood MacPhetres ’60, Debbie Wilson Albee ’60, and Wendy McWilliam Denneen ’60. Judy and Doug look forward to the 55th reunion. * Judy Brown Dickson has been on the road and seas again—a birthday celebration in Shanghai, then snorkeling in Fiji, then visits to Auckland and Hawaii, with Alaska and Brazil on tap. She can’t make our 55th—maybe the 60th? * Helen Payson Seager has retired from musical directing but continues to sing with the Fine Arts Chorale in Weymouth, Mass. Her latest project is writing a book about her family’s house in Nantucket (built in 1800 by Obed Macy). It stayed in the Macy family for 100 years, then was sold to a string of off-island “summer people,” including relatives of her husband, who bought it back in 1976. “It’s an arduous undertaking, but I like what I am producing.” She and husband Brad travelled to Vienna in July and then went to Tanglewood for the gala 75th anniversary celebration. * Archie Twitchell and wife Irene journeyed west this winter, one stop being a visit to the Boulder mall, built when Archie was the city manager. The Wall Street Journal had described the shopping center as one of the two best malls in the country, and Archie wanted to see how it had fared after 30 years. “It looked great. It looked economically healthy and the street art was excellent.” They cut their visit short as the temperature was zero to -9 and most of the sites they wanted to see are outdoors. Both Twitchells were also excited about being at Colby in June. * Since Anita Falter Currier moved to Florida she has seldom had a chance to meet with classmates. So it was really special when Marcia Griggs Atsaves drove to Silver Spring, Md., to visit with her and her two daughters, Stephanie and Natalie, who were in Maryland to attend her youngest son’s wedding. Since her daughters had never met Marcia, they all had a good time telling stories from the past and present. “By the way, the wedding was beautiful.” * Harry and Joan Shaw Whitaker spent a special weekend in January with Merle and Barry Ginsburg at their home in Florida. Other Colby alumni and spouses who joined them were Sue and Bob Hartman ’60, Audrey and Waring Blackburn ’60, Trini and Cam Walker ’61, and Bernie Scherban ’60. The Whitakers also look forward to getting together with many friends and classmates at reunion. * Thanks to the many classmates who notified me of the death of Fran Wren Raymond in early February. Fran will be remembered with fondness, admiration, and respect for the special place she filled in our class. Our condolences to her husband, Bob ’56, and all her family members. * And our sympathy to John Edes, whose wife, Robin, died Feb. 23 in Warwick, R.I. * If you are reading this before Reunion Weekend, everyone on the committee hopes to see you on campus to celebrate Colby’s 200th birthday and our 55th anniversary and to take part in many of the activities outlined by president Brad Sherman in his March letter. If you can’t make it, look for a report in future class notes.
