I write to you from my new home in Vermont. After 25 years living on Cape Cod, I made a big leap to the north country of Middlebury. I’m sure that when winter arrives it will bring me back to my Colby days. * From Art White: “Golf is still fun, but I find it is easy to have inflated scores these days. Several of my Hotchkiss students have visited as they pass through Bath on their travels. It is a pleasure to see how these youngsters have grown to be such interesting and contributing adults. It is also pleasing to relive some of the fun moments of those school years.” * Another Maine resident, Nancy MacDonald Cultrera, says, “Barbara Cheeseman Hooper and I attended reunion in June. We were the only members of the Class of 1952 there! The weather was lovely, and we especially enjoyed going through the museum, which is extraordinary. We marched last with the other Golden Mules in the parade, and all the other classes lined up and clapped for us as we went by. I guess I have to come to grips with the fact that I’m old! I enjoy good health, and my entire family is busy and doing well.” * Evelyn Walker Mack wrote, “I visited Colby in July to attend the dedication of the Davis Science Center. Was very pleased with the bronze plaque outside the computer science seminar room that I sponsored in remembrance of my late husband, Richard Bruce Mack ’51. I’m planning a trip in September down the Meuse River, which includes a post-trip stay in Lucerne, Switzerland.” * Janet Perrigo Brown-Wolff wrote, “Although I was only in the Class of 1952 for two years prior to going to Cornell University Hospital School of Nursing, I have many fond memories of the two campuses. Foss Hall, the railroad tracks, the biology and chemistry buildings, the chapel, the library with the coffee shop on the ground floor, the women’s union, and President and Mrs. Bixler’s Sunday night open house. I have been retired from teaching at the University of Vermont for 18 years. My husband died Nov. 10, 2013. I spent January to April in our condo in the process of moving to a retirement community in Shelburne, Vt. I’m looking forward to writing more of my memoirs and having time to do various handicrafts.” * Barbara Bone Leavitt wrote that she had “a super visit with Jan ‘Sandy’ Pearson Anderson at Jan’s home in South Yarmouth, Mass. We had a wonderful time going to various Cape places and taking a sightseeing ride on the Bass River. The best part was just talking and reminiscing, especially about our Colby days.” * Finally we hear from Russ Wallace, who said on Aug. 27: “Two days ago Napa Valley had a good quake, 6.1 or 6.2. There was a lot of building damage as well as broken wine containers in stores and at wineries. Of course there was a lot of broken plumbing and some loss of power. After inspections of all sorts, there has been no damage detected in the facility where I live in San Rafael. Anne felt it and the aftershocks that followed. Her house is in Larkspur, closer to San Francisco. It is still nice and warm here as we start the new opera season and continue to worry about water shortage.” * With that, I shall sign off until next time. Best wishes!
