As I write, summer has started with nice weather north of Boston. The nice days keep me walking about one mile a day with my five-month-old Golden Retriever puppy. * Back in February John Lee emailed an invitation to anyone visiting the Washington, D.C., area to use his personal guide service. His daughter, Wendy, is in the U.S. embassy in Morocco for the next two years. He’s therefore hoping that she and her husband will be back in the States to accompany him to our 65th reunion in 2018. He recently visited Wendy’s daughter in New York City, where she works for the film industry. John just turned 87 and wonders if he is the oldest in our class. * Loretta (Tommi) Thompson Staples and Carolyn English Caci will take a fall cruise from Amsterdam to Basel. They will be back sharing a room after 67 years. They’re just one example of the Colby lifetime connections. * Joyce Maguire Demers keeps in touch with Ken Castonguay and says that he’s doing great and looks terrific. She brings us up to date since she was widowed in 1969 at 38. She now has quite a family surrounding her as her four kids, who were 4, 6, 11, and 13 at that time, multiplied to seven grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. She’s pretty sure she has all our classmates beat in that department. Joyce welcomes anyone to get in touch on Facebook at JoyceMaguireDemers. She would love to hear from old friends. * Nelson Beveridge called to say that Chuck Spencer’s widow, Joyce Witham, informed him about Chuck’s memorial service in Concord, Mass. Nelson was sorry to be unable to attend because they were good friends at Colby and from there on. I think Nelson said they had been freshman roommates in 1949-50. You probably know that Chuck went on to graduate school in geology and made a career as a geologist. * Chase and Nan Murray Lasbury attended Reunion 2016 on campus, which was their 63th. Nan reports that there were only a few from our class. President David Greene spoke about all the new initiatives and the new athletic complex to replace the old one in 2020. Nan shares that Sue Cook ’75, who worked in planned giving, has retired and that the College has plans to improve the City of Waterville, which ought to raise the eyebrows of Ted Lallier. Did he not bring up that idea at one of our reunions? Nan says that the only thing that seems to remain the same during reunions is the “unforgiving mattresses” in the dorm rooms! * Keep your news coming. I welcome every piece.
