Happy New Year Class of ’62! As I (Nancy MacKenzie Keating) sit at my computer writing this column, we’re about to have our first snow of the season, an experience I know you all will remember, if not fondly. Personally, I love to sit by the fireplace becoming mesmerized by the glow, the warmth, and the crackling of the wood and watching the snow fall. Then I remember that we have classmates in warmer climes, such as Gerry Tays, who writes from California that due to a torn rotator cuff he had to “go under the knife” for a reverse replacement, but with great results. However, it’s his golf game that has suffered, and he says that walking the dog on Pebble Beach is just “not the same.” * Ceylon Barclay enjoyed singing with the Colby Eight in June and traveling to Toronto, Boston, and Costa Rica this year. His new novel, The Taxol Thief, was published recently. He writes that the book concerns “my taxol extraction and marketing from Guilin, China. The drug comes from the yew tree and the book is about the FDA’s 32-year delay approving the drug for breast and ovarian cancer.” * Patch Jack Mosher and Marjeanne Banks Vacco took a nine-day tour of U.S. national parks this summer, visiting parks “from the Grand Canyon to Zion.” They were impressed by the geographical differences between the “majestic West” and New England. * Judy Hoagland Bristol reminds us that our 55th reunion is approaching. If you attended the 50th, you’ll remember how much fun it was and what a congenial group we were. If not, here’s your chance to reconnect with classmates and see for yourself the many changes on campus. So mark your calendars for June 1-4. Judy is planning another pre-reunion get together, most likely in the Camden/Lincolnville area. More on that later. Anyone who’s interested in joining a planning group for the 55th reunion, contact Judy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Judy and husband Harry attended and enjoyed Alumni College at Colby last summer, followed by a trip to Campobello. On returning home to Houston, Harry (whom many of us know as a wonderful man and virtual Class of ’62 member) had a heart attack. We hear that he’s now doing very well with the help of cardio rehab three times a week. Judy is on the home stretch of her term as president of the Houston Association of Retired Teachers. * Michael (McCabe) and I continue to love living in Harpswell, Maine, directing our attention to community endeavors such as chairmanship of the recycling committee (Michael) and for me, continuing to enjoy my designing business and several activities at our church. We see Alison and John Chapman frequently and spent several wonderful days with them at their new St. Augustine, Fla., home last winter. And, as I close this update on the Class of ’62, just one more reminder that the 55th is coming. Hope to see many of you there!
