Hello, classmates! Here is news from those loyal Colbyites who responded to my request. * Dan Hall visited his daughter in Bozeman, Mont. She owns an indoor-climbing facility. Dan learned that Lorraine (Arcese) ’54 and George Wales have a son who works at a ski resort nearby, and a son of Bill Bryan ’48 also lives in the area. Bill was a Colby hockey player/coach and admissions director at Colby and later at the University of Maine. * Richard Bowen has a namesake fifth grandchild—imagine that! Lucy and Richard have several great-grandchildren, and all have Colby connections. Remarkable, Richard. How did you do that? * John Linscott and Bill Bailey ’52 get together each summer as part of a reunion of the 1946 Massachusetts state hockey championship team from Needham. Bill still rollerblades and only recently gave up playing hockey on a senior team. John continues as leader of the Mainestream Jazzmasters band. They’re in their seventh year of playing every second Sunday at The Local Buzz in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. “We invite classmates to come and sit in with the band or to just come and enjoy a musical Sunday brunch.” * Cass Lightner is doing well in New Jersey despite continued arthritis in his left big toe. No dancing or jogging, but maybe a press conference now and then. * Charlie Tobin now has a pacemaker and is feeling great. He lives in Sun City, Fla., in the winter and Dennisport on Cape Cod in the summer. He owns a super inn called The Old Wharf. Visit Charlie in both places—he would enjoy seeing classmates. * Stanley Sorrentino’s wife, Hope, passed away in 2010, and he moved to his renovated summer home in Little Compton, R.I. His seven children live nearby, and he sees them weekly when he’s not in Providence for his Rotary meetings. Stan also attends all the New England Patriots games in Foxboro. * George Wales is now an artist, but then he always was. Now he has a brush and paint. Laurie (Arcese) ’54 has retired as music director for Dennison College, and their daughter, Jennifer, is still director of a TV program for young musicians. What a great family! * Crif Crawford’s retirement community in Boulder, Colo., was hit hard by floods last September. Many cars and part of the facility were damaged, but luckily Crif and wife Kate’s property did not sustain any damage. * Chet Harrington, your author, did not enjoy the snow and cold weather in Villanova, Pa. Jane and Chet took their annual vacation in Naples, Fla., and looked forward to warm beaches and good golf. Chet was recently honored by the U.S. Golf Association and was made a lifetime member for starting the members program with Arnold Palmer. It is a huge success for the USGA. * Thanks to all for sending news and to Frank Gavel for his short phone calls. Happy 2014!
