Chip and Judi Kelly Lord have lived in Charlotte, N.C., for six years. Chip has been retired for a while and is anxious for Judi to join him in December. Daughter Meredith, a stay-at-home mom, and son-in-law Brian, plant manager for ATI Allvac, live 45 minutes from them, with children Gavin, 4, and Molly, 2. Son Russell and wife Dana live in New Orleans, where Russell is curator of photographs, prints and drawings at the New Orleans Museum of Art, and Dana is a psychologist for the V.A. Chip and Judi also have a home in Rye, N.H., that’s been in the family for several generations. This year they invited friends to spend the day with them: David and Linda Loring Shea, Peter and Linda Marsh Foss, and Bruce and Gail Cuatto Kilgour. * Sharon Eschenbeck Friedler sends greetings from Swarthmore College, where she’s entering her 27th year. Sharon serves as professor and director of dance, and is faculty adviser for off-campus study. She’s grateful for the opportunities creative research has afforded her, including a 2012-13 sabbatical, during which she will expand her work on the arts and social change, and teach a course on that topic in Siena, Italy. * State Rep. Jane Stinchfield Knapp has the benefit of going on educational tours. One tour included stops at a huge egg farm in Turner, Maine; an organic cow breeding farm; a potato farm; and an apple orchard. Another tour went to Washington County to see agricultural and marine products. She’s now busy campaigning. * Marlene Goldman reported that several Colby friends enjoyed a mini-reunion at her camp in southern Maine in July. Attending were Paula Crowley Kaveney, Pat Gerrior, and Christine Sherman Daviau and Marianna Ochs Estabrooke ’71, who was visiting from D.C. and had just come from a summer class at Colby. They had a wonderful time getting caught up, and plan to get together this summer when Sue Baird Hilario comes from Guatemala for a visit. Some of them have retired and others, like Marlene, keep plugging away at a career. She’s now professor and director of clinical research in obstetrics and gynecology at Dartmouth Medical School and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H. The second edition of her reference textbook, Women and Health, is due out in the fall. When not working, she enjoys the outdoors and pursuing fiber arts of all kinds, especially knitting and weaving. * Earle Shettleworth has been serving on Colby’s Bicentennial Committee and is in the process of compiling a pictorial history of Waterville to be published next year. This will feature chapters devoted to the College’s old and new campuses. He feels a connection to the old campus through his mother, Esther Knudsen ’27, who showed him her Colby before the buildings were torn down in the 1960s. * Nicky Pach is a retired family court judge, but still sitting as a judicial hearing officer two days a week in Queens County. Husband Steve Kunken continues to practice law. Men’s senior league baseball and golf seem to occupy most of his time. Eldest son Charlie works for Skanska U.S.A. Civil Northeast while pursuing an M.B.A. at the Stern School at N.Y.U. Youngest son Jake announced after finishing at the University of Md. he had decided to become a stand-up comic. Like all good parents of a 23-year-old they said, “that sounds interesting.” However, he had interned at Skanska after his freshman year and they reached out to him and offered him a job! Nicky has been quilting for almost 30 years, and recently put her quilts in a gallery for the first time. Look for the YouTube video the gallery did on her. * Jay and Christine Celata have moved to Pasadena, and are enjoying the cultural life of Southern California. They’re both retired from physics research. Christine spends her time learning watercolor painting, tutoring math in the local public high school, knitting for charity, exercising, and spending time with family and friends. * As for us, Bob and I have enjoyed a relaxing and marvelous summer on Lake Winnipesaukee, N.H.
