Stu Wantman is still active in the jewelry business that he co-owns with his daughter, Julie. However, his Monday afternoons are reserved for his 2-year-old granddaughter, Gretchen. * Peter Anderson was in Lagos, Nigeria, in February to dedicate the last of six water wells that his Rotary club funded for an impoverished village that had never had access to disease-free drinking water. Peter writes, “Children routinely die from waterborne diseases in this village—many every year. Not now—for the first time ever. No more. What a fulfilling and rewarding experience it was for me. I’ve never felt so appreciated by so many people in my life.” * Terry Saunders Lane will travel to Nicaragua with her chorus, Sharing a New Song. There they will sing, learn about the places they visit, and meet local musicians. Terry still works as a consultant on program evaluation for philanthropic organizations. She and Ginny Grelotti Connolly had lunch together this spring. * Living near Denver’s airport makes it convenient for Colbyites to visit Martha “Couie” DeCou Dick. This spring’s visitors were Janet Meyer Throop, Sue Turner, Jerri Hamilton Bost ’65, and Cary Parsons ’65. * Rob Sears is semi-retiring for the second time from his position as director of the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines. He has plans to travel around Asia but remain based in Manila. He is also looking forward to having more time to spend in Italy, Switzerland, and the United States. He welcomes visitors to Manila when he’s there—e-mail him at Robtms@gmail.com. * Anne Ruggles Gere’s summer travel will be to Italy and Hungary, a combination of work and play for her and play for her husband, Budge, and daughter Denali. * Vermonters Betty (Savicki) ’68 and John “Daisy” Carvellas bought a small house and cottage in St. Augustine Beach, Fla., where they’ll spend about three of the winter months each year. Daisy has read Ed Mowry’s book, So Close to Dying, and recommends it to classmates. I’ve read it too and second Daisy’s recommendation. Ed would welcome feedback on any universal themes his book may stir up from our memories of the ’50s and ’60s and our own paths to adulthood. E-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Ed’s first two grandchildren, a girl and a boy, have arrived this year. * Winter Arizona residents Bill and Mary Gourley Mastin still summer in Whitefish, Mont., so they can play with their grandchildren, get chased by bears and butted by mountain goats, capsize in the ice-melt water, hear and see avalanches a little too close by, bike faster than a biting dog, and wear out several pairs of hiking boots! * Our distinguished classmate and Colby Trustee Michael Gordon is chairing the Presidential Search Committee following the announcement of Bro Adams’s impending retirement at the end of the 2014 academic year. Your classmates wish you great success with this important assignment, Michael. * Our class president, Fran Finizio, has begun some early brainstorming for our Colby 50th reunion in June 2016. Volunteers will be sought for various committees, and everyone in the class will be expected to attend. Is it on your 2016 calendar? The dates are June 2-5. See you there!
