Robert Saltz, a “Dana Farber poster boy,” deserves a lot of admiration for fighting cancer for 22 years and surviving 13 operations, radiation, and chemo. He tells everyone he knows to “never give up.” In early April he was living in a new, one-floor home in Arizona, quarantined because of the virus. He also reports on a recent Tau Delta Phi reunion in Gloucester, Mass., attended by Al Dean, Pete Doran, Marty Burger, and Bob, with their respective spouses. They all enjoyed lunch and dinner at a restaurant and then Sunday brunch at the Saltzes’ “to cap off an incredible weekend.” A high point was a long telephone conversation with David “Dusty” and Sheila Campbell Rhoades in Colorado. * Robert Hesse writes that Colby Zetes and friends are looking ahead to their annual get-together at the Muscongus Bay lobster dock at noon on Sept. 10. This very informal, sun-or-rain event is always the Thursday after Labor Day, and everyone looks forward to great food and conversations. Let’s hope that is still on the calendar now. * As I write on April 2, the coronavirus takes all the headlines daily and the country hasn’t peaked yet. I’m in Florida, where the governor finally just called for people to stay in place to help control the spread. Shortly before the virus really ramped up, classmates Dot Greenman Ketchum, Carol Conway Denney, and Susan Sherman White joined me for a week by the beach. We too enjoyed great food and conversation, warmth and sunshine until they heard about a possible lockdown and decided to fly back to Logan while they still could. Things will have to be better next winter! * On a more positive note, Beryl Scott Glover took a trip to the Panama Canal in February. “The country is beautiful, and the canal is an engineering miracle!” Her group spent three days traversing the area in both directions, and she recommends the trip to others. She got home safely as the virus was spreading exponentially, and she hoped everyone is hunkered down for the duration, as do we all. * Stay cautious, safe, and well, friends, and please be in touch again soon, when this horrendous experience is behind us.
