Can you believe we have been out of Colby for 50 years? It seems like yesterday. Do you still feel like you’re 22—even though you may not look or act like it? * Your reunion committee, under the able direction of Judy Hoagland Bristol, has been hard at work planning a fun-filled week. Hopefully most of you will join at least some of the activities. For the on-campus part, we are guests of the College! And this includes the famed lobster bake at noon Saturday. We’ve been hard put to find much winter in Maine this year. Already we are worrying about maple syrup season; too many warm days without the needed cold nights. * Dave Jacobson writes that their family is spread out across the U.S. (Hawaii, Calif., Colo., N.M., Mass.). He will retire from teaching in August 2013. Meanwhile he plays tennis, swims, reads, and, of course, visits children and grands. * Ann Tracy also continues to teach one course per semester. She is currently teaching a largely 17th-century class with the ghost of Benbow behind it. Her students will write a Revenge Tragedy toward the end. * Frank Stephenson is in his last year at Stevenson School in Calif. He says it is time to do something else—like spending time in the Far East. He has a home in Ojai awaiting his retirement and a son in Albany. Hopefully Frank will catch us up at reunion. * Boyd and Mary “Muff” Symonds Leavitt are leaving Porterville, Calif. for a new adventure in Eagle, Idaho. Muff will probably miss her active civic involvement in Porterville. Details forthcoming at reunion. Right now she and Boyd are enjoying Italy. * Pete Hutchinson wrote that he and Marty live in the Acton, Mass. area with their two daughters close by. He reminisces about when all freshman hockey uniforms had been issued prior to tryouts. Hunter Shotwell was the only person who made the team who hadn’t been issued a uniform. Hunter transferred to West Point after freshman year and was KIA on his second tour in Vietnam. Hunter is listed at the Vietnam Memorial (panel w67, line 4) for anyone visiting D.C. Thanks for the memory, Pete. * Bob Reinstein is mostly retired after six different careers in more than 50 years. He currently divides his time between Washington, D.C., and two homes in Finland. He has lived up and down the NE corridor from Washington to Maine and in six European countries. He has three children, three grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren. Is that a first mention of great-grands from anyone? * Dick Mittleman and wife Linda spend most of the winter in Ft. Lauderdale playing golf and riding bikes, but Dick is in daily contact with his clients via IPad2. Their oldest grandchild got accepted early-decision to Duke. Dick and Linda will miss our 50th reunion as they celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on a Danube cruise. Dick, come to the class reunion before you embark. Phyllis Marder Jansen is making plans to join us for reunion. * Pete Duggan finally sold his house near West Point. He and wife Mary Vance have moved full time to Naples, Fla. Pete is fully retired from the Storm King School and looking forward to traveling. He keeps in close touch with Bruce Marshall and Rich Simkins. Hopefully, the Duggans will work their move around our reunion. * Malcolm MacLean has checked in. He plans to be at reunion too.
