Ann Bonner Vidor has retired and has news to share. She’s lived in Atlanta since 1976—too far from the ocean for someone who grew up in Maine and Massachusetts. She and her husband both retired from Emory University, where she was a librarian, and built a home in Ponte Vedra, Fla. Their son, Alexander, graduated from Emory and works in Wilmington, N.C., and daughter Margaret is a freshman at Stetson University in DeLand, Fla. While cleaning closets in preparation for moving, she went through old photos from Colby years—her favorites are from junior year in Caen, France. She has wonderful memories of Colby friendships, experiences, and travels from that year. * Doug McMillan’s company, McMillan Electric Company, had its 40th anniversary in 2016, having made more than 150 million motors since 1976. He’s proud that his daughter, Marley, was asked to sing the national anthem at the Minnesota Lynx and the Minnesota Gophers women’s basketball games. Doug and his wife, Ann, now live in Hudson, Wis., on the St. Croix River, where they see eagles every day. Doug recently had dinner with Joe Benson, who’s happy that the real estate market is coming alive again. Joe and his wife, Martha (Hamilton ’74), are doing well. Doug also spoke with Mitch Fox, who’s retired and learning Spanish, which he hopes to use to help lower-income people in the San Francisco area. * Dee Fitz-Gerald Sockbeson got together with her roommate Roz Teto Johnson in July for a reunion. Roz flew from California for a great time at Dee’s Connecticut house. Then they drove to Cape Cod to reunite with Donna Scimonelli, who was with them at Colby awhile before transferring. They spent time at the beach, ate lots of seafood, and talked about their travels. Dee has a new granddaughter, Caia Elizabeth, who sadly lives in Mississippi, although they spent six weeks with her in August and September. Dee’s trying to make plans for next year’s reunion—she’d love to go. * Susan Buttner Lavelle took a romantic Rhine and Moselle river cruise with her husband and a good friend in November. They visited Belgium, Holland, Germany, Luxembourg, France, and Switzerland. This was her eighth trip with Grand Circle and Overseas Adventure Travel companies. She invites classmates to join them some time. * Bill Alfond continues to be busy with activities and projects in Maine and Boston as well as with kids and grandkids in Maine, New York, and Cambodia. For the third year in a row, he and his wife, Joan, headed to Southeast Asia for the holidays to join their daughter, Kenden, and her family, now in Sri Lanka. Bill saw Ed Mahoney at a Tufts football game. He also had lunch with Tina Murphy Serdjenian—they’re both involved with Waterville Main Street development. In a visit with Carol Johnson, they found a shared interest in the Belgrade Main Street project. Bill looked forward to visiting John Atkinson when he offers a Jan Plan class at Colby. They both share an interest in getting involved with Belgrade Lakes water quality. He also visited with Tom and Ellen Woods Sidar on Belgrade Lakes. * And finally, I heard from John Danila, who enjoys reading our column. He finally visited Colby in November for the first time since graduation. He took a campus tour led by a Colby senior and was amazed at how beautiful the campus looked with its small, yet significant expansion. “How different studies are now compared to our ‘B.C.’ (before computer) days!” John even visited the bookstore to bring home Colby clothes and useful items like wine glasses. * I hope you all had a happy and healthy holiday season. I look forward to seeing many of you at our 45th reunion (how did that happen?) June 1-4, 2017. Save the date!
