Janet Gay Hawkins wrote that there was not much to report. Life is good here at Peconic Landing located in eastern Long Island. She did go on a trip to France this fall—the Basque area, Biarritz, and Toulouse. It was led by a gentleman from Peconic Landing and everything was five-star. She’s discovered that’s the only way to travel. * Howell Clement didn’t get to play golf at all last year because he fell down the stairs at church and banged up his right shoulder. He is looking forward to spring and resuming golf. He added, “I use handrails when going down stairs now.” They are still waiting for winter to start in Montana. His concern is that no snow means dry forests with a chance of forest fires. * On Feb. 9 Franny Hyde Stephan, Carol Silverstein Baker, Jordan “Ike” Kaplan and his wife, Dorothy, joined us for dinner at Admiral’s Cove. It was a terrific reunion, everyone is well, or as well as can be expected, and we had a great time. We also attended a Colby meeting sponsored by Trustee David Pulver ’63 and saw many Colby friends as well as many of the Colby staff including President Bro Adams. * David recently called Aaron Sandler and learned that Sandy is happy in his new Chicago residence. Aaron wrote that the scene from his apartment is white with snow, but fortunately he does not have to go out much, so it does not bother him. He watches a lot of basketball on TV but misses the Colby-Bowdoin games. Recently Bob Sage ’49 and David calculated that, since they met at summer camp in either 1941 or 1942, they have been friends for 70 years. * Our granddaughter Jessica Marson McNulty ’07 will be running in the Boston Marathon for the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge April 16, 2012. * Selma and Ron Farkas are moving to a new home in March and their new address will be 1309 Caminito Batea, La Jolla, Calif. * Burt Krumholz wrote. “Surprise! While perusing the news of Alumni At Large I noted the item submitted by Chet Harrington ’51 regarding George ’51 and Lorraine Arcese Wales ’54. Coincidentally, my daughter, Linda, served as chair of the English literature department at Denison for five years. In a very recent e-mail she tells me that she doesn’t know George but does know Lorraine.” The long reach of Colby persists.
