Greetings! Al Carville, Rod Pierce, Barbara Haines Chase, Pen Williamson, Cindy Richmond Hopper, Mary Dexter Wagner, John McDonald, Joanna Buxton Gormley, Jane Melanson Dahmen, John Wilson, and I (part of our reunion planning committee) observed and celebrated the Class of 1962’s 50th reunion! Plan now to come to our 50th, June 6–9, 2013, part of Colby’s 200th anniversary. We promise it will be wonderful! * Weeding things for a move to a condo, Al Carville came across a lot of Colby memorabilia, including his freshman transcript. * Ann Bruno Hocking opened her own business, the Quilted Turtle, in Naples, Fla. Ann has won awards at the Naples Quilt Show and has done commissioned art pieces * Bill ’62 and Barb Haines Chase traveled to Patagonia, where they learned to tango, and then to Ushuaia, the “bottom of the world.” After interfacing with penguins, they hiked in Argentina and Chile. They feel fortunate to have seen this beautiful, wild part of the world. * Cindy Peters McIver enjoys volunteering at various arts associations and is involved with charitable fundraisers. They’ll travel to the British Isles, Iceland, and Scandinavia. Cindy keeps in touch with Arlene Jenkins Graber, Mary Jo Cahill Schroeder, Cindy Richmond Hopper, Joanna Buxton Gormley, Pat Dunn Field, and Mary Dexter Wagner. * David Hunt serves on several boards, including the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs, and lectures on intelligence and related topics. He tries to keep up with three daughters and six grandchildren. The highlight of his year is time in Maine. He’s talked with Connie Miller Manter. Anyone visiting NYC is invited to join him for lunch or dinner! * Between sunning and swimming in the Gulf, Karen Beganny Megathlin has been working on her bio and contacting classmates about gift giving. In their travels, she and Skeeter ’59 have fun connecting with old friends. * Rod Pierce and wife Pat took their “bucket list” trip around the world by private jet. A 22-day, 31,000-mile adventure to Machu Picchu, Easter Island, Samoa, Australia, Cambodia, India, Africa, Egypt, and Morocco. A safari in Tanzania during the migration topped the list. * Judith Thompson Chandler continues to teach sixth grade algebra. She’s having fun doing senior college activities and playing golf. She and Dian Emerson Sparling will get together this summer. * John and Marsha Palmer Reynolds met Cile Tougas Nix in Rochester, N.Y., for lunch, a long chat, and fun planning for the 50th reunion. Their “group” will attend en masse. They, too, hope everyone in the class will attend! * In D.C. Midge Walton Holmes acted in a political satire, I Get No Kick from Campaign. She was in nine musical numbers and played Mrs. Ron Paul in a comedy skit about the fat content of Paula Dean’s cooking. “It was a blast!” * Paul Pineo says, “I don’t want what I deserve, I want to keep what I have.” He and wife Susan still spend summers in Penn. and winters in S.C. near Hilton Head. * Pi Ryder Kezer visited Cindy Richmond Hopper and Liz Boccasile Mavis ’60 while passing through Venice, Fla. She and Ken cruised from Santiago, Chile, around Cape Horn to Argentina through the Chilean fjords. * Al and Rosemary Blankenship Hubbard celebrated their 50th anniversary. Rosemary finally got a diamond ring and a honeymoon! Her grandparents, also a Colby couple, were married by President Roberts over 100 years ago! * Ruthie Pratley Madell is “closing in on partial retirement,” working two days per week. Making calls for our class, she has enjoyed catching up with people. She and Betsy Doe Norwat are planning to meet in Kansas City for lunch. She says, “Of course I’ll be there next June.” * Sally White Butler visited her daughter, twin grandsons, and twin granddaughters in Illinois. Sally had a wonderful time attending first communions, soccer games, and birthdays, and observing the kids’ technological abilities. * A reminder: the deadline for your bio for our 50th reunion yearbook is Nov. 15. Send your two-page bio, including photos, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
