Bob Haggett and his wife have lots going on with family who live in Iowa, New York, and Massachusetts. Bob continues to substitute teach in the Kennebunk and Saco (Maine) school districts—any subject, any grade—and finds it tough occasionally but mostly enjoyable and invigorating. He also enjoys writing poems for any family member reaching a decade birthday: 30, 40, 50, et cetera. While it is a fun activity for him, he doubts any of the poems would have passed muster in Colby’s English classes. He also has many strong political feelings and positions but will not risk offending readers with his views. * John Kellom and Larry Lathrop got together at Charleston, S.C., during the Spoleto Festival. Larry was en route back to Maine (from Florida) for the summer, and John came up from nearby Hilton Head Island. John plays doubles tennis three times a week—still thoroughly enjoying an active retirement life. * Maren Stoll Fischer, Carlene Daisy Kelleher, Gail Harden Schade, and Marion Porter Potter were about to leave on their Norwegian fjord adventure. They will send pictures for the next class news column! * Ted and Liz Boccasile Mavis took a wonderful trip that began with a repositioning cruise from Miami to Barcelona. They then flew to Porto, Portugal, and traveled to Fatima, a profound experience. They drove on to Nazaré and to Óbidos, the walled city where they enjoyed tapas and fados. They next took a bus to Seville, where they experienced cathedrals, the Alcazar, and the best chocolate and churros they had ever eaten. Next they traveled on to Grenada, the Alhambra, and Madrid by car and then to Barcelona by high-speed train, all the while drenched in Picassos, El Grecos, Goyas, et cetera. Liz really enjoyed their walking tour of Gaudi’s sites, including the Sagrada Família (her favorite), which was fabulous! * Steve Curley, Jock Knowles, Phil Shea, and Ed Marchetti attended the Colby football team’s golf tournament in May. Steve was the only one not to mess up in any of the 18 holes since he only served as the designated driver and left the messing up to his buddies. They certainly didn’t disappoint. They had a great time, and the camaraderie of their friendship after 50+ years is still unmatched. * Judy Allen Ferretti and her husband are back from a wonderful trip to Croatia aboard a small ship. Twenty-six of them lived on the ship, with comfortable accommodations, and sailed to several small islands where they heard excellent lectures from the local guides about the history, culture, economy, and the current way of life of the residents. They enjoyed all aspects of their travels, especially their fellow travelers. * Anna Johnson has recently become a master gardener and is volunteering to teach Seed to Supper gardening classes sponsored by the Oregon Food Bank. * John Vollmer managed at 77 to ski downhill at Deer Valley in Utah with the entire Vollmer family—eight strong! He’s very lucky that his knees are holding up as the beautiful scenery and snow still enthrall him. He will take his grandkids to Sweden this August to show them where he was born, so that will be another story. * Jane Holden Huerta continues to play bridge and work as director at the In-Between Bridge Club (the second largest bridge club in the country), which is conveniently located in Sarasota just 1.5 miles from her home. This year she is running her own game for players with fewer than 20 points and finds it really awesome! One of her players, Peter French, graduated with us. * Erin Tully Chace would like to hear from any of you who were friends with her father, John Tully, who died much too young. I have so enjoyed being in touch with her (firstname.lastname@example.org) as John was my first date at Colby!
