Greetings from Maine! Last week the summer issue of Colby magazine came—what a treasure! Lots of news, both good and bad. Good, concerning all the advances and student achievements. Bad, because it’s time to say goodbye to Parker and Dick. Things just won’t be the same. But life hurries on and Colby is moving with the times. Here we are, the ’55ers, one year older (and wiser?), a whopping 60 years out and counting. * Karl ’54 and Jane Millett Dornish received the coveted Ernest Marriner Award at reunion in June. This is indeed a special honor, well deserved. They’ve worked hard for Colby over many years and in many capacities. Congratulations from all of us! * Eric and Beryl Wellersdieck Piper came all the way east from Corona Del Mar, Calif., to take advantage of the Alumni College Italian Renaissance course at Colby. Short of time, they missed a visit with Karl and Jane and Dilly (Ann) Dillingham Ingraham, but did have dinner at Jack and Ann Burnham Deering’s home with Harriet Sears Fraser, Kathy McCounaughy Zambello ’56, and Larry ’56 and Jean Van Curan Pugh. Beryl reports that Sistie Restall Horne is doing well and seemed upbeat after Bob died. She hasn’t changed. * Bob Johnson lives in Canaan, Maine, and keeps busy with his family and his woodcutting business. * Jane (Daib ’58) and John Reisman spent three weeks in Maine this summer. Over the course of their visit, they saw Larry Walker Powley ’54, Willy McDonald Sawyer ’58, Cindy Allerton Rocknak ’58, and Fran (Wren ’58) and Bob Raymond ’56. Jane and John also had lunch with Kathy McCounaughy Zambello ’56 and toward the end of their vacation lunched with Jack Johnston and his wife. * Did you happen to see the photo of Connie Putnam Barker and her grandson, Jake, in the July issue of Down East magazine? She’s featured in an ad for Thornton Oaks retirement community in Brunswick, Maine, where she lives nine months of the year. Summers are spent at her beloved Orr’s Island cottage. Connie is active with the Orr’s-Bailey Yacht Club and cofounded the Abbot Fletcher Sailing School there. Jake has been a dock boy at the club. What a great life! * We’re looking forward to a beautiful and colorful fall after a warm summer in Maine. Please send me your news for our next column. Cheers!
