Peter Rinaldi was in Florida for the summer and, when back at home in Mississippi, spends his days “running/ruining his newspapers and playing soccer.” * Nour Nahawi and his family moved from Tunis to Algeria. He’s still in banking but hopefully getting closer to retirement. Oldest son Hani graduated from Concordia in Montreal; second son Sami is a junior at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln; and youngest son is at American University this fall. He welcomes hearing from Colby grads in North Africa or at 21-377-060-0800. * Gay Quimby Auerbach was so happy catch up with her friend Roger Sherman when Roger and his wife, Shauna, stopped by Gay and husband Alan’s home in Berkeley, Calif. Roger practices law in Boston and plays doubles tennis “assiduously and victoriously.” Gay admired Roger’s “marathon-running agelessness.” Gay and Alan (professor of economics) travel a lot and try to manage semesters at NYC to visit grandsons. Both of Gay’s sons are gainfully employed, and her youngest is her favorite book-sharing buddy. Gay spends her time painting, drawing, and working fabric. * The Lambda Chi’s have spent many joyous days together since the last column. Alex Wilson reports that the ’73 Chopper Confab took place in Portsmouth, N.H. All but four of the LCA Class of ’73 were present for the communal observance and celebration of their 60th birthday year. In attendance were Dick Beverage, Lloyd Benson, Brian Cone, Gary Fitts, Steve Jasinski, John Krasnavage, Bob Landsvik, Duncan Leith, Joe Mattos, Bob O’Neill, Phil Ricci, and Alex himself. Missing were Doug Williams, Peter Card, and Bruce Smith. Missed by all brothers was Luke Kimball, who passed away in 2004. Also in attendance were Class of ’71 brothers Ron Lupton and Ken Bigelow as well as LCA spouses Barb Jasinski, Jennifer Leith, and Linda Kimball. The LCA’s gathered a second time for their 33rd Fourth of July vacation on the Belgrade Lakes. * Bruce Smith missed the Chopper reunion to stay at home in Texas with his family as they faced an illness with his grandson. He hopes to retire in five years from his vested position in Texas. We hope you are able to make it to our 40th reunion, Bruce. * After a couple of years in New York, Bob Diamond relocated to London in January upon his appointment as chief executive of Barclays PLC. He’s still heavily involved in Colby as chair of the board of trustees and regularly visits Waterville for board meetings and commencement in May. He notes Colby has strong momentum and is in the process of making strategic decisions to strengthen its position as a leading liberal arts college. He asks for further alumni interest and support and looks forward to the bicentennial and reunion in 2013. * Lisa Kehler Bubar described the second floor Dana girls’ reunion this summer. Chris Mattern Way, Debbie Mael Mandino, Jackie Nienaber Appeldorn, Lisa, and I (Carol Chalker) met in Boston in June to celebrate our collective 60th birthdays and our 42 years of friendship. We caught up on news, played bridge (of course!), visited the Chihuly exhibit at the Boston MFA (fantastic!), and toasted our next decade at a fabulous South End restaurant called Stella (highly recommended!). Actually Lisa, if you recall, we toasted our next THREE decades.
