Retirements (3), reunions (3), unions (1)—not a bad scorecard! * Now that the class is mostly retired from the rat race, we are enjoying newfound travel fun and connecting like crazy with folks from our earlier lives. Dave Hatch—50th high school reunion in Massachusetts last June. “Am loving the Florida lifestyle” * Connie and Dave Fearon—50th high school reunion at Deering High in Portland. “Good practice for our 50th.” Dave is looking forward to “another cool T-shirt” from Chris Brown. * John Bragg retired in November after 46 years in the family business started by his great-great-grandfather, N.W. Bragg, in 1854 as a supplier to blacksmiths. He plans to spend more time in Fort Myers with the grandchildren. * Tim Cleghorn retired in August 2010 after 37 years with NASA at the Johnson Space Center. Since then he’s been teaching Aikido to small groups. Tom Donahue stopped by for a visit last February. “Nicest thing about being retired: not having to be anywhere at a set time.” * Neil Clipsham is only “95 percent retired.” He now has time for the garden, travel with wife Jean, some volunteer work, lunch with old friends, and “answering requests for class news.” * Lew Krinsky visited Colby in June to attend a tribute dinner for retired basketball coach Dick Whitmore. He spotted John Joseph, Earl Smith, and Carl Nelson at the event. * Marnie Hale Fowler is busy with grandmother activities in Belfast and at their summer lakeside home in Norcross, Maine. Marnie reports “rollicking visits in Portland with Rhoda Goldstein Freeman and Tina Moore Miller—yes wine was involved. Thus goeth retirement.” * Nancy Godley Wilson has been involved in theatrical activities on Deer Isle and connected with the Shakespeare in Stonington festival at the opera house—costumes, receptions, etc. Nancy recounted a nice lunch visit in East Blue Hill with Pam Harris Holden ’66 and Bryan Harrison Curd (see page 44 of Colby summer issue for news of Bryan’s new book). * Nick Locsin and his wife, Sue (Cook ’67), continue with volunteer work at Maine Maritime Museum. Nick teaches boatbuilding while Sue archives boat blueprints. They, too, are in the grandparent business and do “boating/fishing on the Kennebec, Sasanoa, and Damariscotta rivers.” The Locsins were in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in May and are off to Spain this fall. * Colby Professor of Sociology Tom Morrione was featured in the Colby summer issue you received last July. The article recounts his innovative approach to teaching about philanthropy management. In addition, his wife, Nancy (Ryen), continues in the Colby admissions office as associate dean. * Our UNION was reported by Jay Gronlund, with the happy news of daughter Melissa’s wedding last May. Helping to celebrate were Rich and Gail Crosby Davis ’58 and Charlie ’63 and Pam Plumb Carey. * I conclude with the sad news that Matt Riddell lost his wife, Jemmie (Michener ’66), after a long battle with ALS. Our sympathies and condolences go out to you. She was 66, which is too young. * Hail, Colby, Hail.
