Gilvan Marcelino is retired from the civil service and works as a consultant. His expertise is in science and technology management and international cooperation, as he worked for 22 years at the National Research Council in Brasília. He has a master’s in public administration from the University of Québec. He lives just outside of Brasília in the satellite city of Guará with his wife, Maria, two daughters (Patricia and Adriana), and two grandsons. * Doug McMillan had dinner and drinks recently with Martha (Hamilton) ’74 and Joe Benson (“They were barrel dancing and looking pretty good!”). He received a couple of e-mails from Steve Self, who was proud of the Canadian Olympic team wins in both men’s and women’s hockey. He also talked to Mitch Fox, who will retire next July after a very successful career in hospital administration. Mitch has a home in the California wine country that he and his wife, Martha, enjoy immensely. Dana Fitts is also doing very well in the furniture sales business, which he’s been in for nearly 40 years. Doug and his wife, Ann, sold their house of 30 years in St. Paul, Minn., and moved permanently to their renovated cabin in Hudson, Wis. (He’s still a Vikings fan, but now he’s surrounded by Cheeseheads!) * Barbara Senges began her third year of retirement in April and enjoys her free time. She lost her mom in March, and as the oldest she felt compelled to take on the role of family communicator. She’s also become involved in town politics in East Lyme, Conn., where she’s lived for 24 years. She continues to be deeply involved with her synagogue, serving on several committees. She recently saw Judy Spitz, who still teaches at Solomon Schechter Academy, where Barabara’s son was a former student. (And Judy will be happy to hear that Barbara thinks she still looks exactly as she did at Colby!) * I heard from Susan Hoy Terrio, whom I believe has never sent news before. She and her husband, Steve ’71, have two wonderful daughters, one granddaughter, and three grandsons who all live in the greater Washington area. Steve retired in 2009 and has been enjoying family time at their beach house in North Carolina. * Joni and Bill Alfond enjoyed summer with activities at their camp in Belgrade, sharing days with family (they are the proud grandparents of six!) and friends, including classmates John Bunker, John Koons, Tom and Ellen Sidar, and John Atkinson. They attended the memorial service for Coach Winkin, which brought back many memories. At the memorial service they visited with Brian Cone ’73, Don Borman, and others. Bill welcomed and spoke with new president David Greene. * In May Janet Veasey McLetchie and Nancy Round Haley flew to Bethesda, Md., to spend a weekend with Ma-Li Liang (a student at Colby until 1971) and Stina Reed. Norma Ouellett O’Reilly was unable to join us. We stayed at Ma-Li’s home and toured the Washington, D.C., area. It was a wonderful mini-Colby reunion—and how wonderful that we still enjoy each other’s company after 40-plus years. * Enjoy fall, Class of 1972—winter will be here before you know it!
