Happy spring, one and all, and thanks to the following ’52ers for their news. From Dick Chamberlain: “I continue to work as a medical consultant to the Social Security Disability unit in Winthrop, Maine. Interesting and challenging work with an increasing volume of applicants prompted by the number of people still being laid off.” Dick is impressed by news from Colby, such as the new heating plant, which uses biomass as fuel. That cuts fuel costs and pollution. * Art White has been to many Colby-Bowdoin games. “I went with Cherie Stitham White ’65 and her husband, Bob, (my nephew). Saw Bob Kline and Jack Deering ’55 and had a nice visit.” * From my fellow Cape Codder, Don Hailer: “Our Falmouth Colby gang, Judy and Herb Nagle, Carl and Muffie (Audrey) Morgan Leaf, and Sheila and I, attended the funeral for George Lebherz’s lovely wife Charlotte in December. She had been ill for some time. We are sending notes back and forth to each other about reunion, but no one has made a hard and fast decision yet. Have been in touch with Russ Wallace and Russ Dixon, and everyone seems to be in good shape.” * Nelson Howlett wrote to say, “Both my son Charles, who’s a history teacher, and my daughter Lorin, who’s a computer expert, and her husband John (Duncan) have moved back into the ‘home place.’ Charles’s second grade daughter, Kacie, is a regular visitor and keeps us up to date with news about what things are like in elementary school these days.” * Mel Lyon tells us, “I’m having fun learning the ancient Scandinavian rune alphabet so I can use it for a story in my book. Looking forward to attending a Colby luncheon with President Adams here at the Beverly Hills Country Club and am hoping to visit Colby at reunion time in June.” * Polly Wakefield Simmons says, “For 12 years my husband and I have been codirectors of the Elyria Hospitality Center of North Central of Ohio, working to stamp out hunger by providing free food to our area friends in need, and we operate a free clothes closet as well. Recently we stepped ‘down, but not out,’ as all the work was too exhausting, and now enjoy just volunteering. We come to Maine every summer to visit family and friends. With six children, 19 grandchildren, and two great-granddaughters, we have a wide area to visit in several states. Hope to travel more than when we first retired. We have five weddings coming up soon in Maine, Ohio, and Ind.” * And, finally, from yours truly. Barbara Bone Leavitt and Nelson Beveridge ’53 paid me a visit in February. We enjoyed lunch and catching up on Colby news. I hope to see many of you at our 60th coming up in June!
