Marie “Connie” Daviau Bollinger is “very happy to be still alive.” She heads her church book club, belongs to a group called Women on a Journey, and does a lot of baking for one of her sons who lives nearby. With 14 grandchildren and 20 great-grands, and another on the way, she’s grateful to also have wonderful friends who keep her happy. * In August, Doris and Maurice Whitten attended the 73rd summer conference of the New England Association of Chemistry Teachers (NEACT). Maurice was the oldest member in attendance—both in age and in membership. He became a member in 1945, right after graduation. Maurice recalls that in 1957 the conference was held at Colby with Professor Evans Reid serving as conference host and Maurice as cochair for arrangements. NEACT made Maurice an honorary member in 1978.
