To the Class of ’73, if you couldn’t make it to your 40th reunion last June, think about coming to ours this year. If you did attend last year and had as good a time as we did, why not do it again with a new group of Colby people? We’d love to see any of you who can make the trip. * Classmates, this will be our last column before we see you at reunion. Thanks for all your responses to our news requests in the past five years. We hope that 2014 is going well and that we will see many of you in June. * Jeff Barske married Kim Elisa Prario last October in Clinton, Conn., after three years of a wonderful friendship. Congratulations, Jeff and Kim. * Last May Clif Brittain and his wife, Peggy, and their two kids, Frank, 24, and Nancy, 28, went to Tuscany, Italy, on a bicycle trip hosted by REI and led by an Italian couple. Clif and Peggy then spent time in Florence and Cinque Terre. This was their first trip to Italy and they loved everything about it. Clif rows in the summer months, cross-country skis in the winter, loves to play Scrabble, and home-brews beer in his spare time. You bring the Scrabble board in June, and game on! * Robin and Cathy Morris Killoran bought a home in Melbourne Beach, Fla., in the fall of 2012. After spending several weeks there throughout 2013, they sold their home in Kent, Conn., and moved to Florida last October. Sadly, Robin passed away from an infection shortly after their move. Cathy is thankful for the time they had in their new home. She spent Thanksgiving with siblings Bill Yovic ’77 and Sue Yovic Hoeller ’73 and family in Tampa. Cathy would like to reconnect with any Colby people who live in the area or are visiting. * Last October Jo-Ellen (Bois) ’77 and Greg Smith marked the 40-year anniversary of the day they met at Colby. In their words, “A freshman pledge of Sigma Kappa sorority walked into the Delta Upsilon fraternity to attend a faculty/Greek cocktail party. She was greeted by a young man who hung up her coat and escorted her over to the bar. Later, they drove to dinner in his ’52 Oldsmobile convertible at the South End Café for roast beef grinders. And the rest, as they say, is history. The ’52 Olds is restored and driving the back roads of Washington.” * After living in Holden, Mass., for the past 11 years, Don Richardson and his wife, Janet, moved to Millbury, Mass. He’s in his 38th year on the library staff at WPI, where he was recently promoted to associate university librarian. Their big news is that their son, Matt, was married Sept. 15, 2012, to Kendra Leith, the daughter of Jennifer and Duncan Leith ’73, also of Holden. It was a wedding of Colby children on a perfect late summer day in Cape Neddick, Maine. Don’s Zeta Psi roommate, Joe Mattia, and a Lambda Chi contingent helped them celebrate the day. * Dennis Delehanty and his wife, Elizabeth, spent three months in Beijing, staying with daughter Carmen, who lives there and works for a company that helps Chinese high school seniors apply to top U.S. colleges. A couple of her students enrolled at Colby. Dennis and Elizabeth lived the day-to-day life of expats in a friendly, welcoming neighborhood not far from the U.S. Embassy. Dennis said, “Living in China is an exercise in humility: no matter how intelligent or educated you think you are, in that country, as a Westerner, you are absolutely helpless, due to the impenetrable language barrier.” * Well, that’s all, folks! See you at Colby in June. Be there, or we will talk about you, and it won’t be pretty.
