While in Florida each winter, Constance Rockwell Ward volunteers with the children of Fellsmere, Fla., working with the local private library to put on educational programs for about 300 young children and arranging enrichment programs at the elementary school. For these efforts she was designated Volunteer of the Year at the school and this past season received a proclamation and a key to the city of Fellsmere. * In July Jane Gibbons completed hiking all the trails in the AMC Guide to the White Mountains. She is the seventh person to have finished—and the oldest. There are 1,420 miles of trails, many to quite remote places in the Whites. Previously she hiked New England’s hundred highest mountains, climbed to the highpoint of the lower 48 states, hiked to the summit of approximately 400 peaks in the Southwest, and scaled Mt. Kilimanjaro. “Pretty good for a gal who was one of Colby’s worst athletes while in college! It shows that it just takes persistence to reach your goal. You might say I was a late bloomer.” * In early August Jim ’56 and Ann Harding Jamieson were in St. Albans, Maine, at their camp, awaiting the arrival of four of their nine grandchildren and their parents and wishing the other five grandchildren could join them. “That, to us, is about as fun and satisfying as it gets.” One group was coming from Georgia, where the temperature was 95 degrees, so Ann hoped Maine would “show its really good stuff—cool and breezy weather.” In response to my query about reading recommendations, Ann suggested writer Daniel Silva, who recently published the 14th book in his Gabriel Allon series. She likes reading his works because they are “instructional and riveting—and oh so current.” * For the month of October Judy Brown Dickson will be in England with her son and his wife. She’ll also travel to Scotland to visit Bethia Reynolds Morris ’57 at her home in Helensburgh. “It will be another adventure for me.” * Janet Pratt Brown and her husband are happy that their oldest daughter, Deb, her husband, Mitch, and their two children, 11 and 7, are moving closer—from Seattle to Vermont, where Mitch has a counseling position at Williamstown High School. The move “will make family reunions a bit easier, and I look forward to visiting Vermont more often from Ithaca, N.Y.” * Kay Litchfield Cross and Dot Greenman Ketchum paid a summer visit to Ginny Angney Bushee at her home at Lake Seymour, Vt. As well as catching up on news and driving to Quechee to shop, they attended a performance of Alfred Hitchcock’s drama 39 Steps at the famous (at least in Vermont) Haskell Opera House, the only theater located half in the U.S. and half in Canada. The international boundary runs diagonally through the theater, and the exit sign on one side is in English and on the other in French. Fortunately, no passport is yet required to see a show there, but if theater-goers park on a street in Quebec, they must report to customs officials; failure to do so may result in a $5,000 fine! * All the news this time is from females. Okay, men, you’re up next time! I want lots of replies—what you’re reading, where you’re traveling, where you’re volunteering, what post-retirement jobs you’re taking, etc. Please keep me posted!
