Gloria Livelli Moscatello attended Colby for one year (1952-53) then received her bachelor’s and master’s in early childhood from Newark State (now Kean University) and taught in New Jersey for 10 years and in northern Virginia for 11. Her husband worked for the Department of Defense in Brooklyn, and then in Virginia, until retirement. They live now in Gainesville, Va., at Heritage Hunt, an over-55 community. Though NJ natives, they’ve been in northern Virginia for 49 years. Gloria fondly remembers her Foss friends Carol Sunderland, Susan Winter Smith, Nancy Mather, and Katie Coon Dunlop. * Sheila McLaughlin Freckmann-Dillon missed our 60th but managed a mini-reunion over Labor Day with Janet Stebbins Walsh, Susan Miller Hunt, Rosemary Crouthamel Sortor, and later with Janet Nordgren Meryweather. After visiting her daughter and extended family in South Hadley, Mass., she headed to Washington, D.C., and then to Charlottesville, Va., where all five of her children and most of the grandchildren attended the marriage of her eldest granddaughter, Marina. Sheila’s husband, Brian, was unable to attend due to medical reasons; they also had to cancel their planned Asian cruise. * Frank Huntress sends his congratulations to Don “Rube” Rice for receiving Colby’s C Club Person of the Year Award last October. Other class members, for their contributions to the College, have likewise been honored in the past. Frank was in London and Westminster Abbey for Christmas and tried to contact Yvonne Noble Davies in Kent. * In May Lois Latimer Pan, Cookie Kiger Allen, and Joanna McCurdy Brunso got together at the James Michener Museum in Pennsylvania and later will travel to London to participate in a Road Scholar program. Vonnie Noble Davies, married to a Brit and living in England for many years, will visit them in London. * Last year Julie Brush Wheeler was in Maine to visit family and friends and stopped at Colby to experience the remarkable art museum and Alfond-Lunder Family Pavilion. She and her husband still stay in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, for six weeks each winter. If any alumni are there in February or March, contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org. * Brian Stompe has ridden a whale! Having launched his 16-foot aluminum boat at Fort Baker to go salmon fishing, he passed under the GG Bridge and saw two breached humpback whales. Another whale suddenly surfaced under the front of his boat and lifted it three feet on its back. Standing, Brian maneuvered his boat down flat to a hard landing and the whale, unhurt, swam off waving his huge tail. Brian headed for home with two Chinook salmon. The home garden is producing and his crab catches feed family and friends. * Lynne and Harry Wey spend time each summer on Southport Island and catch up with Barbara Nardozzi Saxon who reunites old friends Heppy Reed Powers, Judi Pennock Lilley, and Mary Danforth Lozier, Warren ’57 and Babs Faltings Kinsman from Ellsworth, and Rosie Crouthamel Sortor. They’re also in touch with John Jubinsky, Diane (Schnauffer ’57) and Larry Zullijger, Andy Anderson, Jean Van Curan Pugh ’55, and Hope Palmer Bramhall. * In September, at Janet Nordgren Meryweather’s summer camp in Spencer, Mass., Kathy McConaughy Zambello reunited with Sheila McLaughlin Freckmann-Dillon, Janet Stebbins Walsh, Rosie Crouthamel Sortor, and Susan Miller Hunt. In August, at the Farnsworth Museum in Rockland, Janet spent the day with Ruthann Simmonds Mac Kinnon and Lucy Blainey Groening. * Katie Coon Dunlop was co-chair of fundraising for the restoration of the Greek Revival columns of the Smithfield Presbyterian Church, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. She also gave permission to James Patterson and Maxine Paestro, Katie’s friend and client, to use her name in their latest novel, Woman of God. She planned a trip to Palm Beach in January. * Janet Nordgren Meryweather and Hope Palmer Bramhall celebrated Kathy McConaughy Zambello’s birthday in November. Janet was busy with family (25) during the holidays and expected her eighth great-grandson (Seattle area). She again heads to Nokomis and Captive, Fla., for the winter.
