Hallelujah! I have news to share thanks to all who responded to my letter. * When you come back to our 65th reunion, a must-see is the new Alfond-Lunder Family Pavilion at the Colby Museum of Art. I’m not a connoisseur of art, but I found the opening exhibition marvelous—from Claes Oldenburg’s whimsical sculpture of a typewriter eraser, which only those of our generation would recognize, to the more serious paintings of Winslow Homer and Whistler, to name only two of many. The exhibition is open through Reunion Weekend 2014. Don’t miss it! * Ruth Endicott Freeman and her husband, Miles, have two daughters, three grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren who live in Washington, D.C. At 97 Ruth still volunteers every Wednesday at the Congregational church free dinner, and her trips consist of driving herself down the hill to her dentist’s office. * Carol Carpenter Bisbee has four children, 14 grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren. Carol keeps busy volunteering, traveling, reading, and riding around in her yellow Saab convertible. She volunteers in Belfast, Maine, for the Waldo County Hospital Aid gift shop, the Chamber of Commerce, and Friends of the Library, and she is a church deacon. Her travels have taken her to Egypt, where she hot air ballooned over the Valley of Kings and Queens, and more locally on a wine-tasting cruise on Penobscot Bay. She’s a member of a coed bridge group who preface their bridge playing with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and pizza. On a more serious note, she’s taken lots of Senior College courses through the University of Maine. * Anne Bither Shire writes that she has lived at Piper Shores, a retirement community in Scarborough, Maine, for 10 years and loves it. She summers in Jonesport, Maine. She’s a fanatic duplicate bridge player. No trips anymore, but in the past she and her husband traveled all of Europe and Asia and a good deal of Africa. * Marjorie Plaisted has been plagued with health problems since the early 1980s when she was diagnosed with neuropathy of her left hand and foot. In December 2012 she fell, breaking four ribs and puncturing her left lung. This spring was spent in and out of the hospital with low oxygen and low heart rate, but she’s been home since May 4. Now she can enjoy reading and watching sports on TV—all the Boston teams as well as tennis, golf, and college and local sports. Good luck, Marge! * Mary Ellen Bonsall Guptill and her husband run a sanctuary for 50 to 100 cats on their property in Westport, Mass. Since the 1970s Mary Ellen, as a volunteer, has arranged exhibitions of arts and crafts and historical memorabilia at the Westport Free Public Library. With two friends she has traveled yearly to Italy and France and studied the arts and history. With her husband she has traveled by car across the United States several times and visited state houses and museums. * Jean Sheppard Silva lives in a retirement community in Camden, Maine, in her own cottage where she has a very small garden. In October her three children and five grandchildren had a family reunion for her “big” birthday. Her hobbies are reading and singing, which she does with the Down East Singers and in her church choir. In 2009 she traveled to Serbia, Bulgaria, and Greece with the Down East Singers. She also volunteers at her church thrift shop, Heavenly Threads, and at their weekly soup lunch November through March, and she ushers for Bay Chamber Concerts. * Lucile Farnham Sturtevant and her husband still live in their home (with the laundry moved to the main level) after 58 years. She does some gardening and plays golf a few times a year. She also volunteers at her church with the flower guild and as a lay reader. In April they took a five-day golf trip to St. Simon’s Island, Ga. * I’m out of space, so I will have lots more to report in the next issues of Colby!
