Hi, everyone! I hope you are all having a great fall as you prepare for another winter. * Jane Chandler Carney is “living the dream.” She and her husband, Owen, spent two months skiing at Sugarloaf, returning to Arlington in time for cherry blossoms, then traveled to North Carolina, where their older son “married a lovely girl in a magical wedding.” * Doug Kant and his wife, Joy, were in Los Angeles during reunion weekend visiting their new granddaughter, Eleni Drew Yetwin, and her proud parents. Doug says she is a little sweetheart but wishes that she and her parents lived closer. * Gus Browne promises to attend our 50th reunion and remains employed by Fresenius Medical Care. In February he and his wife, Lorraine, celebrated their 30th anniversary. They have three children and three grandchildren, and they recently had a visit from his old roommate Moses Silverman and his wife, Betty. Gus was looking forward to seeing Anne York Samson during a business trip to Portland, Ore. * Laurie Killoch Wiggins finds that life in Fairhope, Ala., offers a huge variety of activities. Laurie serves as curriculum development chair for the Institute for Lifelong Learning and has helped build the organization to more than 100 instructors and a program of 60 subjects. She would greatly enjoy hearing from friends, especially her Chi Omega sisters. * Donna Massey was delighted to receive a photograph from Craig Stevens during his presentation at reunion. Donna says it was wonderful to have time with Kristen, Anne, and Jane in Harpswell and praised the lobster feed at Eddie Woodin’s, which “was excellent as always.” “It is always so good to be in the company of my Colby classmates; I wish it could happen more often and am looking forward to the 50th.” During a family vacation this summer Donna tried downhill mountain biking, enjoying it until she broke her leg. After a challenging summer recovering, she is heading back for a final year of work. * Don Clark sent greetings from Senegal. He wishes he could have been at reunion, but he was in Nepal on a six-week job and moved on to Senegal for another six-week assignment. Don “unretires” for four to five months a year as USAID continues to invite “oldies” back to fill in here and there, but otherwise he is in New Hampshire enjoying a very rural life. He plans to stop unretiring in a couple years and hopes to be at our 50th,“where coats and ties should be banned!” * Don Caouette really enjoyed getting together at the home of Eddie Woodin, “who was a wonderful host,” and enjoyed spending Saturday on campus talking with classmates, some of whom he had not seen in a very long time. Don is looking forward to our 50th. * Peter Shearston headed for his first reunion with mixed feelings. Once there, Peter says, “Time sort of stood still as we reacquainted with each other. Leaving was a bit bittersweet. We have some very talented, accomplished, and funny, salt-of-the-earth classmates, some of whom I am honored to call friends.” Peter left Colby a “shave tail with a restrained hippie spirit” heading off for adventures that could have included Vietnam, but he ended up in Cheyenne, Wyo., where marriage ensued and a son shortly thereafter. After a 24-year Air Force career with assignments in Canada, England, and throughout the United States, he now resides in Colorado Springs, Colo., and is a senior program manager providing support to the Missile Defense Agency CIO’s office. His son and wife live in Denver, and two grandchildren live in Washington. * Gary Austin and his wife, Judy, were on an African safari during reunion. It was an “incredible trip. One of those once in a lifetime events!” Gary sent me a beautiful photo (one of 1,400 they took) from a cruise on the Chobe River in Botswana with the sun setting over Namibia in the background. * I also heard from Jeff Coady, Chris Christensen, Stephen Fisher, and Ines Ruelis Altemose, who didn’t make reunion but, along with others, commented on the class picture. Keep the news coming, and keep our 50th in mind—it will be here before you know it!
