We seem to be a class on the move! Gayle Jobson Poinsette and Gary Barnes are in Vermont until the winter solstice when they’ll head to warmer climes until early spring. Call them at 802-479-5460 if you’re anywhere near Montpelier. They’d love to show you their new home. * Liz Drinkwine ’68 and Ted Houghton spent seven months traveling in their RV last winter, to Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons, then New Mexico and Texas. Back with family in New England for the summer and early fall, they spent a good part of September traveling Down East, then they’ll roll along to the southeast for five winter months. * Bob and Merri Aldrich Egbert headed west this fall to tour some national parks. * Peter Anderson continues his work with Rotary International and his special interest in the Pinnacles National Monument, an ancient volcanic field with massive monoliths, rock spires, and caves 40 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean, 80 miles south of San Francisco, and on the San Andreas Fault. No wonder geologist Peter would be drawn to such a place! It’s also the site of a California condor re-establishment program. Peter has been instrumental in fostering exchange programs between Pinnacles and a sister park in Argentina, his wife Elena’s homeland, and he’s excited about Pinnacles now achieving full status as a National Park. Class travelers should include it on their itineraries. Peter and Elena spent time at their Buenos Aires home in late summer. * Gary McKinstry has moved from his beachfront condo on Longboat Key into nearby downtown Sarasota, with a view of Sarasota Bay and proximity to Sarasota’s shops, restaurants, and cultural institutions. * University of Michigan English and education professor Anne Ruggles Gere enjoyed a great trip to Mexico City in August, where she gave a talk and met with other professors. * Karen Riendeau-Pacheco and Joe enjoyed boating on Narragansett Bay this summer and loved seeing the Tall Ships depart from Newport, R.I. Karen, Bob Thompson and Brian Shacter attended Colby’s Alumni College in July. Look for a picture of them on our class’s web page at www.colby.edu/alumni. * From Jane Farnham Rabeni of Columbia, Mo., comes the following news, “We’re still spending summers in Maine and in Eastham on Cape Cod. Charlie retired three years ago, but it has taken that long to get the last of the stragglers’ dissertations read. I’m still piping and running a fire department bagpipe band. That’s a good sign—I can still walk and breathe at the same time. We have enjoyed some Road Scholar (formerly Elderhostel) and OAT–Grand Circle trips. Looking forward to Chile and Argentina in November. If we could get a daughter to move east, I think we’d consider moving back to New England, but we’re not holding our breath.” * Fun to see Bayard Kennett on TV in my neck of the woods. He’s the star of an advertisement for successful joint replacements at a North Conway hospital, sporting his golf game, new knee, and obviously successful surgery and recovery. It’s the thing to do these days…. * I love hearing from you. Keep it coming!
