Well “fifty-seveners,” IT is creeping up on us with greater speed! And IT would be our 60th reunion from Colby, a figure that seems an impossibility to even imagine. But until June 1-4 arrives, we have a bit of news to report. * Arlette and Mac Harring are putting their endless energy into high gear and last June traveled to Paris for three days, followed by a week-long bicycle tour of the beautiful countryside of Normandy and Brittany with Vermont Bicycle Tours. Theirs was a group of 15 riders and Mac was the only one who remembered World War II. Trailer travels during the summer through rural Pennsylvania and West Virginia made the Harrings not at all surprised by the fall election results. * Ron Rasmussen keeps in touch with his Colby roommate, John Koehler, who lives in Auburn, Va. Ron enjoys the competition of Fantasy Football (he won the championship for the third year in a row—no small feat) and doing Sudoku puzzles. His autobiography is now complete, giving him more time to communicate with his expanding family, now including two grandsons and a baby granddaughter. * Allan van Gestel still works as a mediator/arbitrator, with at least two cases scheduled for 2017. We’ll be happy as long as he can make his way north, up the Maine turnpike, in early June. * Upon turning 80 and enjoying having his family and 10 grandchildren fly from all over the world to help him celebrate, Don Dinwoodie received news that he has Parkinson-plus. He intends to plunge forward and add boxing, yoga, table tennis, and pickle ball to his already busy retirement activities and use this as an opportunity to grow and move forward. Don has also joined the boards of his AARP chapter and the Old Log Schoolhouse and will put his positive attitude to the best of use. * Bev (Jackson ’60) and Tony Glockler moved into a continuing care residential community about a mile from the house they lived in for more than 50 years. Both are still healthy and active and live independently, but feel secure with full health care facilities onsite. * So, the news for this issue is definitely mixed, but everyone is putting their best foot forward. Attitude is everything and a great one always pays off.
