Jane Knapp Stinchfield Sexton expresses the thought that we are all fortunate to have the internet for communication, especially during this time of the coronavirus. Her husband has been receiving chemotherapy, so they’ve been semi-isolating themselves until the pandemic is over. * Steve and Laura Struckhoff Cline had an interesting beginning to the year. Steve had his left hip replaced in early January and had to have it redone in mid-February. There were times before the second surgery when he had an audible squeak when he walked. He felt like the Tin Man in the Wizard of Oz. It is amazing how hard it is to “take it easy” for several months. He should be 100 percent by the time they would have visited Mayflower Hill for the 50th reunion. Steve says that Laura was a rock throughout. On a lighter note, they were blessed with the arrival of another healthy and beautiful granddaughter on Lincoln’s Birthday. That makes seven grandchildren for them. Final score: girls, 5, boys, 2. * Doug Smith’s West Coast optometry practice is closed to all but emergency sight-threatening conditions, which, as no one is very active right now, are very rare. No bar fights, few motor vehicle accidents, and a decline in strokes for some reason. He and Hazel, along with their local son’s family, are following isolation rules. His wife, however, is a delivery nurse and very busy right now. Their California daughter’s family is fine, although, with a 6- and 3-year-old out of school for the balance of the year, they’re researching how to build tiger cages. * Joani Katz, head of the 50th Reunion committee, submitted this update: “It is mid-April, and here in Boston we are in lockdown. Colby has wisely postponed all June 2020 reunions until a later date. It’s ironic that 50 years ago our graduation and senior year were disrupted. However, we’ve proved we are a resilient class, and our Colby ties remain strong. It has been my privilege and pleasure to chair this seminal reunion. Our committee has been terrific. Class Co-Presidents Debbie Hawks Kelley and Mark Zaccaria and I are part of nearly 20 classmates who worked with Colby staff to plan a wonderful multi-day celebration. Now, several different dates are being considered. Whenever our reunion will occur, I urge you to come as the 50th is a once-in-a-lifetime event. There had been an overwhelming response to registration, and I know we can sustain that sentiment as we work with the College to arrange another date. Have a healthy summer, be safe, and stay tuned to further communication from Colby.” * Bob and Libby Brown Strough survived their first full winter in New Hampshire, although it was a mild winter by NH standards. We took long walks with our Portuguese water dog, Tango, and Libby spent hours quilting. Son Jonathan and his family visited in February for a ski weekend. Wishing you all a happy and healthy summer, and I hope to see everyone at our reunion, whenever it occurs.
