The Class of ’57 is certainly a well-traveled group to say the least. Read on and you will all agree that our voyages go far and wide! At our 55th reunion Dick Phillips was very pleased with Colby’s beautiful campus and shocked to find himself walking into a campus disco bar. Dick lives in Chestnut Hill, Mass., with his spousal equivalent and keeps busy traveling all over the world, from Africa to China to Alaska. He also plays the banjo with a local group, the Stone Street Strummers. * Refreshing his long-faded memory of Eastern European history, Lou and Bill Bois took a riverboat trip up the Danube to Hungary, Romania, Serbia, and Bulgaria, in June. * In August, as president of the Sheldon Family Association, Dr. Jeanne Arnold Jeffries and husband Peter were pleased to host the annual meeting and reunion in Northampton, Mass. One of the highlights was a presentation by the mayor of Northampton of a proclamation that Aug. 7 was Sheldon Family History Day in honor of the original settler, Isaac Sheldon. * Dick and Perk Perkins Canton enjoyed beautiful Maine weather at their summer home on Long Lake in Bridgton. Good health and their families coming for visits make each day even better! * Rose Stinson Ebsworth and her husband took a summer trip was to Denmark to visit old friends and share a weekend with their American granddaughter who was there to take a course on Viking history and archeology. Back “home” in England, Rose enjoyed all the Olympics, especially the U.S. swimmers and gymnasts. * Don Tracy’s summer was busy, as always, entertaining family and friends, sailing on Penobscot Bay, and enjoying the lowest-priced lobster ever! * Eleanor Duckworth will be on sabbatical this fall and in December is looking forward to retirement and devoting time to modern dance; Eleanor is in three dance companies and also dances with other choreographers from time to time. That, plus involvement with a nonprofit started by former students, will allow no time for boredom. * Mikki Chomicz Manno had a fall last spring that caused a lot of damage “from head to toe” and forced her to cancel plans to attend reunion. Her recovery, thanks to good physical therapy and sheer grit, allowed Mikki to enjoy a nice summer on the Jersey shore. * Roberta Santora Hindert treated her two young granddaughters to a cruise in June to Alaska, where they enjoyed whale-watching and bonding without parents. Her favorite activity these days is rally competitions with her Labradoodle! * Andrea and Allan van Gestel traveled in June to Sweden, spending one week in Stockholm and a second week traveling the coast south to Karlsham. Allan was recently designated by a major pharmaceutical company to be on an arbitral panel for a hearing in a patent case being heard in The Hague. * Bob and Sue Fairchild Bean, Ellie Shorey Harris and her friend Harry, and Guy and I had a most enjoyable lunch together recently here in Yarmouth. Every one was in fine fettle, and it is always such fun to catch up face to face. In the summer Sue is in Kennebunkport and Ellie is at China Lake. * Sadly, we lost loyal class member and Colby supporter Mac Blanchard in August. Mac and wife Dot were hiking near their camp in Sebec, Maine, when he suffered a fatal heart attack. Our condolences go out to his wife and family. * We hope everyone has survived the political mudslinging that has been going on for months. Here’s to a more productive and cooperative four years!
