Jan Young Stinson writes: I’m trying to not let the grass grow under my feet. Having just moved to Ponte Vedra, Fla., in December to be near one of my sons and his family, I’m now moving to Hershey, Pa., where he started a new job as director of resort sales for Hershey Resorts. My other son and family live in Hollis, Maine, where he is the training coordinator for Olympia Sports as well as appearing in local theatre productions. I’ve spent a lot of time driving the eastern seaboard—it’ll be nice to have both families within an eight-hour drive! * Larry Dyhrberg: A French teenager spent a month with us, including four days in Montreal while Michelle did a French teachers’ conference. In Montreal we stayed with Allan Smith. After Chicago we’re driving to Madison, Wis., to see John Oaks. * Jim Harris writes of a cold summer, which most of us cannot relate to. He’s been volunteering at the library and at the Pacific Northwest Writers Association, which sponsored a four-day writers conference in August. * Susan Woodward: For all the news of my life check out the latest at www.rv-adventuring.com/re-adventures-07152011.html. I’m really enjoying all these volunteering gigs and have seen some wonderful places. * Martha Farrington Mayo: I’m finally totally retired. Time at our summer home on Squirrel Island is now punctuated by visits from our grandchildren (and their parents). Even though we all live in Bath, Maine, life is different on the island, and I love to see my grandchildren enjoy the beaches, walkways, boats, and woods—and making friends with other generations of islanders. I directed another variety show in April. It was the best ever, but it may be time to quit while I’m ahead. The last act before the finale is a tambourine act, which is a showstopper. I’m willing to bring my tambourines to our 50th. I need 8 to 12 people willing to be taught (if you can count to eight repetitively, you’re in). If you’re curious, check out “2005 Tambo Line” at YouTube. * Gloria Shepherd: I had a fabulous time at the Joseph Peller “Painting the Vineyards” workshop in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada, in June. We painted and enjoyed gourmet lunch and wine. * Bob Drewes: Robbie and I moved to Park City, Utah, and our vacation home has become our primary residence. I’m working on some start-ups. * Jonathan Allen: I’m semiretired but continue to do consulting gigs as RF Electronics Consulting, serving mainly the solar photovoltaic (solar cell) industry in its R&D programs. I’ve given talks and written about energy and climate change. My wife, Shirley, is now retired, and we’ll celebrate 40 years of marriage this year. Our daughter, Laura, 27, is in graduate school pursuing a dual degree leading to a Wharton M.B.A. and an M.A. at the Johns Hopkins School for Advanced International Studies. She wants to work in financing renewable energy in developing countries. We’re all luckily in good health and doing quite well. * Barbie Carr Howson: In April Susan Ellsworth, Margaret Mattraw Dodge, Joan McGhee Ames, Suzy Noyes Mague, and I “did” New Orleans for a “tween-reunion.” Suzy, having lived there nearly 45 years, was our hostess and intrepid guide to all things culinary, musical, and historic. In between seeing gators in the swamp, Ellis Marsalis playing the piano, eating beignets, and moseying through the Garden District, we caught up on each other’s lives and vowed to do it again! * Alan Cohen ’63 responded to my query as to the whereabouts of Steve Goldberg, AKA Krow. Steve moved to Australia 30 years ago to teach high school. He married and had two children there. Alan reports that Steve died of lung cancer about 10 years ago. Alan, who was friends with Steve before Colby, recalls that Steve was the only person he knew to get an “A” in freshman English.
