Happy New Year! Do you realize our class graduated 61 years ago? Just search Class of 1955 Colby on your computer and you’re right back on campus. It’s an honor to be the next class correspondent. Thanks to Kathie Flynn Carrigan for the years she put in. We appreciate all the work you did. Now it’s my turn. For 40 years, my husband and I kept busy publishing the only magazine in town. In between we raised four children and two grandchildren. Now we swim, travel, and go to the COA. This March we’re going back to Sanibel Island, Fla. Is any one else going there? * Sid Farr wrote in: “I’ve enjoyed traveling from Waterville to see my children and grandchildren and recently returned from Arizona to see son Scott and his family. I spent Thanksgiving and Christmas with my daughter Sally and her family in New Hampshire. Recently, I read Earl Smith’s delightful book Head of Falls, which is set in the mid-1950s in Waterville. I think it would bring back warm memories to our classmates. Earl, a Waterville native and a Colby staff member for many years, is dean of the college emeritus and college historian.” * Lee Fernandez retired last year as an ad-rep for the American Nuclear Society. Traveling in the third world, he’s completed a ninth trip into Myanmar on cargo-boat and motorbike. Tour guiding, books, and the arts fill his days. He fondly remembers dining with Betty and Peter Ré just a few years ago in Waterville. * Let me know what you’re up to for our next column.
