Where is everyone? It’s hard to believe that so many of you are off on an exotic adventure and too busy to stay in touch. But we shall persevere! * Bob Pettegrew is still “cranking full time,” as he puts it, most of the time devoting his business skills to professional fundraising with nonprofit boards such as running their capital campaigns. Bob is always ready to enjoy life and performs three or four piano gigs a month. * Mikki Chomicz Manno will soon be off to Italy and Greece with her family—nine kids and grands in all. Back home again, Mikki will have a summer filled with music, including the 62nd Ocean Grove Choir Festival featuring choirs from the entire state of New Jersey. * From Cape Elizabeth, Maine, Peter Merrill emails that in late June he had attended a memorial service for his dear friend Dr. David Adams ’58 at the Cousins Island chapel in Yarmouth, where he and eight of the members of the Colby Eight alumni from our era were included in the program. At a restaurant following the service, Dave’s family hosted a wonderful celebration party to honor his well-lived and very full life. Guy and I were in attendance and enjoyed conversations with Bo Olsen, Tom Brackin, Ed Tomey ’59, Keet Arnett ’59, and Bob Marier ’60. It was a treat for us to see and hear the Eight perform at the Muddy Rudder and to catch up with many good friends, including Skeeter ’59 and Karen Beganny Megathlin ’62. Pete still plays jazz piano often with Pete Collins ’59. * William Winslow sent word that indicated he has been nostalgically reminiscing about his ski team days at Colby, perhaps due to the fact that our 60th reunion looms large. Anyway, he is forever grateful to Buddy Bates for wisely steering him away from that rickety old ski jump at the Colby hill and to terra firma of the cross-country trails. That advice served WW very well, for he still hits the trails to this day, even in Central Park in New York City. * As we close, please remember that any news sent after our deadline will be included in our following column.
