George and Diane Chamberlin Starcher celebrated their 60th anniversary this summer, and are settling into life in the states following 50 years residing in France. Diane reports that Sarasota, Fla., has outstanding opera, orchestra, and ballet. Lifelong-learning classes, volunteering at a childrens’ afterschool homework program, and continuous involvement with the local and regional community of the Baha’i faith keeps her busy. Diane’s email address is email@example.com and she would love to hear from Colby friends. * Arthur “Bob” Cummings reports that winter 2015 was the first they stayed in Maine in “many a year” and “it wasn’t too bad.” Bob had a nice visit from Vic Scalise, does a lot of Sudoku, and looks forward to four-wheeling with his son. * Nancy Moyer Conover now lives in Storrs, Conn., (close to daughter Joanne and family) goes to the gym five days a week to ride a stationary bike, plays bridge every Thursday, and visits her younger brother who is in a nearby nursing home. She still questions her move from PA where her friends are but concludes, “Life is a gamble—I am so lucky.” * Al Packard runs an art and drama program for children in Florida. Last year they did productions of Snow White, Frozen, and Alice In Wonderland. This year they will do Aladdin and Inside-Outside. I have contacted Al for more details about his work so that I’ll be able to give you more details in the next column. * Judy Thompson Lowe had kind of a kinky (sic) winter, during which she had a stroke, but all is better now. She was in Minneapolis for a Red Sox-Twins baseball game and also spent time visiting friends in Boston. Judy keeps busy with the League of Women Voters, the Museum of Natural History, and as a member of the “coffee team” at two venues at the Village in Gainsville, Fla. Go Gators! * Judy Jenkins Totman passed on word from Colby that, once again, the Class of 1954 has led the pack with 65% participation rate for the Giving Day drive in February. * As your class correspondent, I have made a conscious decision to not include the passing of classmates in my column. I would, however, be remiss if I did not note the passing of professor Richard Gilman Jan. 15, 2016, at 92. It was such a treat to have him at our 60th reunion.
