Brian and Marilyn Lebowitz Rothberg write from Valley Forge, Pa.: “We are spending whatever time we can with our three terrific grandchildren. Two live only 20 minutes away, and one is in Manhattan, just two hours up the road. Marilyn is planning to retire, after 25 years as an elementary school librarian and a previous 15 years as a fundraiser. Brian still toils away at a Philadelphia plumbing and heating wholesaler and bicycles whenever he can. We’re planning a summer trip to Alaska to see four of Alaska’s eight national parks in our quest to see all of the U.S. national parks. If all goes well we will have only four left!” Way to see the United States, guys! * Anne Callaghan dropped us a line from British Columbia. “How can 40 years have passed? I remember coming back to Colby for senior year to graduate with the Class of ‘74 after being away for two years in Japan. My brother, Neil ’76, and I were part of that wonderful Winter Street group house just up from Professor Westervelt and his family. It was a great year. Neil lives happily on Hawaii’s Big Island and runs a health food store with his partner, Malu. I’m wrapping up my tour as consul general in Vancouver and heading to Albuquerque to be diplomat in residence at the University of New Mexico in September, covering New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, and northwest Texas. I’d love to hear from Colby graduates in the area!” Vicki recently returned from a trip to Albuquerque and Santa Fe and loved both places. Have fun there, Anne! * Deb Wathen Finn, unofficial roving reporter and assistant to the class correspondents, reported that the Class of ’74 was well represented by Rebecca Littleton Corbett, who just finished an eight-year stint on the Board of Trustees. Thank you for your service, Rebecca. * S. Ann Earon is helping Deb on Colby’s Alumni Council, and her daughter is just finishing her freshman year at Wagner College on Staten Island. * Art Bell has also joined the Alumni Council. His oldest son, Chris, who graduated from GWU Law School, landed a job with a law firm in Pittsburgh. * Jefferson Megargel checks in from Bronxville, N.Y. He’s been unemployed since 1994. He has a mild case of multiple sclerosis and asthma and receives supplemental income from the Social Security Administration. * Grandparent news: Dave and Sonja Powers Schmanska were excitedly anticipating daughter Helki’s second daughter in May. Older granddaughter Annabelle is 2. * Lindy Krohn Lund lives in Minnesota with her husband, Todd, and announced the arrival of their first grandchild, Eloise Lynne, born April 23 to Lindy’s son, Dylan. Congratulations! * Joe ’72 and Martha “Taffy” Hamilton Benson welcomed daughter Missy’s first child, Andrew Clark, in March 2013. * This is the last column that Vicki and I will be doing. We have thoroughly enjoyed keeping in touch with our classmates and feel as if we know so many of you much better now. We’re passing the baton to Nancy Spangler Tiernan, who is moving to Maine after living in Colorado for many years and has volunteered to write the column for the next five years. We’re thrilled that she’s offered to take on this role. We’re also excited that several ’74 alums are moving back to Maine either full time or seasonally. We hope we can soon figure out how to get together more often than every five years.
