Greetings and good wishes for fine summer minus hurricanes, tornados and heat waves! From Rod Howes: “I feel good and am happy. It can’t get much better than that at our age. Life is too short. I have no news for you. Just showing you all that I am still on the green side of the grass. I have nine grandchildren—five are in college at the same time—and two great-grandchildren. Life goes on. Live it well. Do something fun.” * Anne Plowman Stevens tells us, “Haven’t heard from or seen anyone this past spring except for Sal. She was writing me as her address changed. I’ve been busy with concerts, which entail rehearsals. It is fun to keep busy with my family too.” * Hugh Chandler wants to keep in touch with the Class of ’52 and sends the following message: “I am not really a member of this class. Eventually I graduated from Oberlin and then got a Ph.D. from Cornell. As of now I am still teaching philosophy at the University of Illinois at Urbana and enjoying it. I plan to go to Oxford in a couple of weeks for a brief stay with my sister. (So far as I know, my news has never been published in the class news, so I would be very surprised to see it there.)” Well, Hugh, I have certainly made an effort to remedy that with this issue. * Edie Carpenter Sweeney wrote, “I have moved to the Highlands, an assisted care facility, in Topsham, Maine. I love it here! Lots of good food, fun activities, and lovely caregivers. My husband, Arthur, is in another part of the Highlands, so I can visit him every day. Life is good!” * Our final message is from Nancy Mac Donald Cultrera, who met Bill and Barbara Cheeseman Hooper, Nancy Copeland, and Bob and Betty Brown Holmes at the June reunion. She says, “We were there as Golden Mules and because of Colby’s 200th birthday. One lady in the audience commented that the campus has grown so much and there are so many trees that the spires of Miller Library and Lorimer Chapel are no longer visible as you walk along. It rained part of the weekend—there was no parade—but that didn’t dampen our spirits. Golf carts, driven by students, were available for some wild, speedy rides around pedestrians and down grassy slopes!” Nancy said they had a wonderful time and were fortunate to be in good enough health to visit Colby again. “Hail, Colby, Hail!” * That’s it for this time around. Next time I hope we’ll hear from some of you who haven’t been in touch. We need and want your news.
