Mike ’76 and Mary Bastron Harper celebrated Mary’s 60th birthday with a wonderful weeklong trip to Paris. Two months later Mary was recuperating at home in Minnesota from arthroscopic surgery on her right knee to repair a meniscus tear, which was the result of falling on ice last winter while walking their golden retriever, Frances. Mike works long hours at the Mayo Clinic in his dean of practice position. He still sees some patients, but mostly has administrative duties and travels now. Youngest daughter Caitlin is a second-year medical student at the nearby Mayo Medical School. Son Nick is living in Chicago, working in a commercial real estate investment firm and taking night classes at the University of Chicago for his M.B.A. Daughter Sarah is in Austin, Texas, teaching Spanish at a private prep school and coaching the women’s golf team. * For John Orefice it seems like only yesterday that he was listening to President Strider talk about serendipity. While driving his daughter to Elon, N.C., for her senior year, the memories kept flooding back: Johnson Hall, Pizza by Norm, and Sandy Maisel’s bow ties! John retired two years ago from teaching and directing high school students in Pelham, N.Y. He and his wife sold their Pelham home of many years and moved to Atlantic Highlands, N.J., where they enjoy a majestic view of Sandy Hook Bay and, on a clear day, Manhattan. While moving he discovered how much Colby memorabilia he had saved, including boxes of Powder and Wig photos and posters. After posting pictures on Facebook from Man of La Mancha (fall of 1974), he reconnected with fellow Powder and Wig alums Larry Cappiello ’74, Claudia Schneider ’77, and John Mulcahy ’76. * Katy Seabrook Brunault finds it hard to believe that she has run her own dance studio, Hamilton-Wenham School of Dance, for 20 years. It is such a joy for her to spend each day doing what she loves. Daughter Fiona has her master’s in teaching and teaches English at Pioneer Valley School for the Performing Arts. Fiona and her husband, a Ph.D. student, live in Easthampton, Mass. Katy’s husband, Charlie, works for Sylvania. One highlight in her life was when Charlie bought her a cello for her birthday a few years ago. Katy played in high school and has found it so rewarding to start playing again. Last July Katy enjoyed seeing Andy and Susan Story Galt and Jim Peale ’77 and Carol McIntyre-Peale at their annual gathering at the Galts’ 100-year-old camp on New Hampshire’s Lake Lovell. * Deborah Seel Palman, a retired game warden in Maine, is president of the Maine Association for Search and Rescue. In September she and her dog, Quinn, put their skills to work and found an 86-year-old Maine man who had been missing from his Benton home for two nights. “Anytime anybody is found, it’s a success,” Deborah told the Waterville Morning Sentinel.
