When Jay ’76 and Marguerite “Mugsie” Nelson Sarson initially thought about how to spend their retirement years, they didn’t realize they would have nine grandkids under the age of 4! Pandemonium is the new norm when they all get together. * Marty Womer spent two weeks vacationing in Europe with his sister this summer. They departed from Dover, England, on a Baltic Sea cruise. Ports of call included Copenhagen, Denmark; Berlin, Germany; Tallinn, Estonia; St. Petersburg, Russia; Helsinki, Finland; Stockholm, Sweden; and Aarhus, Denmark. * Stephen ’76 and Marian Hartman Rogers continue to enjoy life in Ithaca, N.Y., with their golden retriever, Mac. Marian is a longtime freelance editor. Her company, BiblioGenesis (bibliogenesis.com), specializes in scholarly editing for authors and publishers in classics, religious studies, food and wine, and many other fields.

Last June Michael stopped by Colby during Reunion Weekend and had breakfast with Byrd Allen, who was visiting the Class of 1974. Byrd is putting together a 40th reunion committee for our class; he would definitely like some more volunteers. * Sue Conant Cook discovered a wonderful article about Bar Harbor on a budget, written by Nancy Heiser.

Lisa’s older daughter, Zoe, is in her second year of medical school at NYU. Her younger daughter, Rose, recently graduated from Mount Holyoke with a double major in English and art history; she spent the summer interning at the magazine Antiques. * The song “Never Say Never” comes to mind with the news that Pete Coz relinquished his confirmed bachelor status when he married his girlfriend, Susan, in June in Southern California. Congratulations, Pete! * Be sure to mark June 4-7 on your 2015 calendar for our 40th reunion. Hard to believe! Plan on a weekend of reminiscing, reconnecting with former roommates and classmates, and making new friends.
