Since retiring in 2000 Joan DeSalvoMansour has spent winters in Florida and summers in Massachusetts. To commemorate turning 60, Joan resolved to run a half-marathon—not an easy task for her, but she did just that at Disney World last January. Joan has promised Dianne Billington Stronach that she will return for our 40th reunion next June. * Ruth Tracey recently returned to her maiden name and is now enjoying her Florida retirement after working for the Palm Beach County Library. She keeps busy with volunteer activities and helping her 95-year-old mother, as well as frequenting the local Y, since she needs motivation to exercise. Her four grandchildren all live in New Jersey, and though she tries to visit them, it doesn’t happen often due to her “animal” kids, one Welsh corgi and a cat. * Last December Mary Jo and Rick Drake moved into their “new” 1928 home in Nashville. After six weeks of remodeling, they unpacked and were ready for the holidays in three days, just in time for the kids to arrive. Older son does stand-up comedy in Chicago and comedy festivals around the country. Younger son is an engineer who recently relocated to Atlanta. Rick works for a health-care consulting firm that deals with acute-care hospitals around the country. He still finds time to play ice hockey for several teams and makes an annual trek to Tampa to play in the 60+ nationals. * Edwin Walczak went skiing in Telluride, Colo., for a week this past winter and was just happy not to break anything. * Liz Richards enjoyed her first winter in the 1920s cottage she renovated outside of Farmington, Maine, near Clearwater Lake. She never thought she would enjoy sanding, staining, and building so much. “So all is well, the family is happy, and really what more can you ask.” Liz describes her four daughters as “getting ridiculously old” considering she refuses to! Liz welcomes all to visit her in her rural, peaceful cottage just 40 minutes from Colby. * The latest news from Dr. Will Tuttle is that he recently returned from a lecture tour in Taiwan, Australia, and New Zealand for his book, The World Peace Diet. The book has been translated into a dozen languages and was a #1 Amazon bestseller a few years ago. Will’s life mission of promoting vegan living and compassion for nonhuman animals has been an inspiring adventure for him. After 17 years living full time on the road in an RV and putting on about 150 lectures and concerts annually, Will and his wife, Madeleine, have finally settled into a house in Northern California and are creating a food forest there by a spring-fed lake. He has also just released another book, Circles of Compassion: Connecting Issues of Justice. * Susie Gearhart Wuest [yours truly] is walking much better now after partial knee replacement surgery in February. * Doug Windsor still has fun working as a JV lacrosse coach while running a very successful commercial construction company—House of Windsor. His two sons attend Proctor Academy; David is a lacrosse and hockey player, and Luke is a ski jumper and hunter. Doug attended a great reunion a while ago with Eric Boonstra ’74, Libby Corydon-Apicella ’74, Ken Hardigan ’74, Rick Steinberg ’74, and others. “How special four little years are!” were his closing words. * For our 40th reunion, class president Byrd Allen is seeking volunteers to join him in planning the event and activities as well as helping with our class gift. If interested in being on the committee, please send an email to email@example.com. The planning has already started. Save the date for June 4-7, 2015.
