First, circle your calendars for June 2-5, 2016. Our next reunion is less than two years away—calendars have a funny way of filling up. * Now for news: Jim Morgan traveled to Kenya this summer to visit his daughter and her family, including grandson Henry, whose parents work in the U.S. Embassy. Jim thinks Henry is an aspiring Maasai warrior; he shows great dexterity with anything of a spear-like design! * Joy Sawyer Mulligan combined a Maryland trip for her goddaughter’s wedding with a “Butler Broads Reunion,” this time including Wendy Swallow, Heather Finney Eng, and Julie Stewart. There were lots of simultaneous conversations, and fine cooking by Wendy and Heather was matched by equally fine eating by Joy and Julie! Joy was named chair of the English department at her school, attributing it to “slim pickin’s,” but we know better. * Martha Bell is the College Board’s director of assessment publications, supporting the redesigned SAT for 2016. Rab Bell travels everywhere—from Singapore and New Zealand to rural Ontario and Louisiana—providing lectures and workshops for his Intelligent Community Forum. Martha and Rab, whose younger daughter is getting married this fall and moving to D.C., spent two weeks in Maine at a family cabin on Frenchman Bay (“a slice of heaven”), visiting Sue and Paul Kueffner on their way home. * Paul said he saw Martha and Rab the same day he and Sue were kayaking with Caren Starr Schwartz. Caren was named one of the top 10 QuickBooks Pro advisors in the country at a Scaling New Heights conference in June. Caren writes regularly for website Intuitive Accounting and provides training and support on billing, accounting, and practice management through her business (timeandcents.com). * Doug McMurrey has taken on deep-sea fishing. He suggested we start a Colby ’76 group through LinkedIn—any takers? (By the way, we DO have a class Facebook group: Colby College Class of 1976.) * Toby Bobbitt has been in western Massachusetts for 18 years and is in her eighth year as school adjustment counselor at Crocker Farm Elementary in Amherst. She’s happy to be near much of her family. She uses her still-strong Spanish at work—and on a recent trip to Honduras, organized by church colleagues of Diane Lockwood Wendorf, with whom Toby remains dear friends. Toby sings in jazz and church choirs and loves yoga and gospel music. * Sean Drummey sent me a terrific photo from his visit with Ed Harvey last August in Burlington, Vt. * Barry Rabin has been practicing ophthalmology in Syracuse, N.Y., since 1987, and is on the faculty of Upstate Medical University. His daughter, a clinical psychologist in Cherry Hill, N.J., was married over Labor Day weekend. Barry caught up with Mark Fishbon ’77 at the reception. Barry’s son is a product manager at Legrand in Harrisburg, Pa. * I was very happy to hear from old friend Nancy da Silveira, who teaches Portuguese and tutors international students at the Claremont Colleges. She also provides tutorials via Skype for executives in Japan preparing to work in the States. Nancy’s documentary film Flight of the Dove is now streaming on folkstreams.net. * Remember to circle the reunion date, send me news, donate to the Colby Fund, and call an old Colby friend you haven’t spoken to in more than a year.
