Larry LaPointe and his wife, Rae, enjoyed attending four summer theater shows in Brunswick and taking their 4-year-old great-granddaughter to the children’s show. “Had my best college literature class ever; all students were over 26 and highly motivated. Back to teaching college writing this fall.” They continue to enjoy three months in Port Charlotte, Fla., where they visit Larry’s best friend from high school. Going to the theater and movies, eating out, and playing cards are activities that keep them going back. The LaPointes celebrated their 59th wedding anniversary Sept. 5. “Where did the years go?” (What we all wonder.) * Jean and Don Kennedy spoke with about 20 Colby alums at the memorial services for Dave Marr ’61; Dave and Patsy Houghton Marr ‘61 have been Don’s close friends for more than 55 years. Jean continues to volunteer in the Boston Symphony Orchestra Archives. She was scheduled for back surgery in October, and in November the Kennedys expect their first great-grandchild. Don retired as a school superintendent in 2000; however, since that time he has been the team leader for more than 200 consulting projects in the six New England states. “Helping dozens of districts to develop full-day kindergarten programs, closing achievement gaps among minority children, building and renovating schools, and persuading a town’s schools to admit the children from a temporary center for battered women—these have been the most rewarding part of my life in education.” * Judy Brown Dickson recently enjoyed a great visit with two of her three kids and grandchildren in Portland, Ore., and with a niece and many friends in New Mexico. She said, “Will be off to Iceland Sept. 1! Permanent vacation is the best!” * Warren Judd reminds us that coach John Winkin died recently at 94. The Portland Press Herald called Winkin “the man who defined baseball in Maine for generations.” Winkin coached at Colby, the University of Maine, and Husson College. He made Maine a contender several times in the College World Series and saw more than 90 men who played for him sign pro contracts. * Gail Crosby Davis, another traveler, returned in August from visiting daughter Wende Davis ’82 and family, who live in Basel, Switzerland. They had a delightful reunion, and Gail will be happy to see them again when they visit California during their Christmas vacation. Her twin granddaughters, Camden and Ashley, are 12. * John ’55 and Jane Daib Reisman enjoyed another summer trip to Maine to reconnect with a few Colby folks. They had visits with Bill and Cindy Allerton Rocknak, Olin and Willie Sawyer, Kathy McConaughy Zambello ’57, and Bob Raymond ’56. The Reismans were looking forward to a Road Scholar trip to Croatia this fall. * To celebrate the 60th anniversary of our meeting as freshwomen (though we didn’t have that word then), Dot Greenman Ketchum, Susan Sherman White, Carol Conway Denney, and I did a repeat of our cottage rental in Stockbridge, Mass., and again enjoyed musical performances at Tanglewood, dance at Jacob’s Pillow, and satire with the Capitol Steps. All agree we can’t possibly be as old as the calendar claims. * As always, thanks for your responses, and let’s hear from more of you next time. All the best!
