Liz (Rowe ’63) and Bev Lapham sent news from Vero Beach, Fla., where they “get away” and were visited by daughter Wendy Lapham ’86. They travel to Florida only briefly as Bev is an elected Meredith, N.H. selectman. They had their 10th gathering of the “Colby varsity” at their home in Meredith, N.H., Sept. 13-15. It’s a continuation of mini-reunions that Norman and Charlotte “CiCi” Clifton Lee started more than 30 years ago. In attendance were DeeAnn and Sandy Arens, Skeeter ’59 and Karen Beganny Megathlin ’63, Mary Ellen and Wayne Fillback ’64, Sandy and Nancy Cunneen Boardman, CiCi Clifton Lee, Scotty MacLeod Folger, and Penny and Henry Lapham ’60. Mary and Denny Dionne are also regulars but couldn’t make it this year (see following news from Denny). Liz says, “Our gatherings of Colby folk in NH are so precious to everyone.” A picture of the varsity team, and a picture of Liz, Bev, and Wendy, is at alumni.colby.edu under the “Stay Connected” tab. * Denny Dionne writes: “Mary and I sailed from Miami to Cuba on the Adonia (Fathom Cruise Lines) and made three ports of call, including Havana, on a People-to-People excursion, which required spending time ashore meeting Cubans. We found them warm, friendly and wanting to interact with Americans. Cuba still has a long way to go improving its infrastructure but has spots that are truly beautiful, including Santiago Du Cuba. We were grateful that President Obama lifted the ban on Cuban cigars and rum (if you catch my drift).” * Bill Bainbridge currently works as medical director in a prison in the “boonies” of Pennsylvania but was looking forward to joining his sailboat in Florida. * Quimby “Q” Robinson, Colby’s nearest neighbor in our class who popped by the 55th, wrote: “Just finished Hamilton by Ron Chernow, with more than 700 pages of wonderful writing and information. I tried to skim (as I did too much at Colby) but found each new subject just too captivating—much cheaper than the Broadway play also. My hope for winter is lots of good skiable snow here in Maine; hope you get some there, too, Scraf.” Yes, Q, as I write this column, Mauna Kea on Hawai`i Island has more than a foot, which I can see from my new front door in Hilo. * We’re still planning a mini-reunion for those willing to whisk across the Pacific in 2018. Donna and Bob Burke were guests here in 2002 and can assure you’ll have a fabulous time. If you’re interested, email me so I can add you to the information list.
