John Hilton writes, “Went to our 50th, which was really good. Everyone should use the stimulus of our 50th to make an effort to reconnect and maintain relationships.” We echo your sentiments. Reunion was great fun, congenial, well organized—a huge success! About 140 of us (including spouses) and nine ambassadors from the Class of ’63 were there. We missed those not there. Here’s an incomplete and vastly simplified report, with apologies to those left out due to a word limit. Steve and Brenda Wrobleski Gottschalk came from Colorado with their daughter and son-in-law. As always, Brenda had stories of travels—to Brazil, including the Pantanal, a pristine wilderness. Marcia Eck Brolli—at the insistence of Ruth Veit Hodum—joined us. Judy Hoagland Bristol, with her husband, Harry, was organizer and emcee par excellence. She arranged a relaxing three-day, prereunion stay at Camden’s Whitehall Inn. The group had dinner at David and Janan Babb Vaughn’s lovely home in Camden, and it included Joan (Dignam ’63) and Dick Schmaltz, Toni and Allie Weller, Allison and John Chapman, and Roey Carbino. Sue Keith Webster, Judy Cronk Liberty, and Linda Nicholson Goodman made beautiful roomies. Sue is pastor of a Congregational church, Judy lives in Yarmouth, Maine, and sings with the Sweet Adelines, and Linda is “still working” in her hometown school system in Conn. Many classmates came great distances: Henderson Colley from Vail, Colo., where he skis and plays golf; Frank Stephenson from Pebble Beach, Calif., recently retired from the school that bears his name; Sandy Fullerton from San Rafael, Calif.; Boyd and Muff Symonds Leavitt from Eagle, Idaho; Nancy and Gerry Tays, from Washington State, to name a few. John “Spud” McHale, from Steamboat Springs, came to a prereunion brunch that Michael and I hosted at Falmouth Country Club. Joining him were Chris and Judy Wood, who split their time between Peapack, N.J., and Sarasota, Fla., Rob and Anne Ticknor McNeece, Debby Price, Paul ’60 and Elaine Healey Reichert, Al Neigher, and Peter Leofanti. Several classmates presented Saturday afternoon: Dr. Patty Downs Berger talked about single-payer health insurance; Nancy Kudriavetz Ramsey reflected on the book she cowrote, The Futures of Women. Bill Chase, Elaine Healey Reichert, Pat Farnham Russell, and Joe Wright sat on a panel about volunteering in the third age, and Alice Shest Loffredo spoke about her book, Your Astrological Compass. * Sandra Keef Hunter wrote, “I went on a birding trip to Costa Rica in March. Looking forward to the promised bird walk at Colby.” Lo and behold, there she was in Perkins Arboretum Friday morning with Ben Blaney, Nancy Rowe Adams, and others. At dinner we honored the 44 members of our class who have died. Patch Jack Mosher organized the memorial, and Sue Keith Webster and Barbara Crane Davenport, ordained ministers, read the names. Barb was at reunion with her partner, Coleen O’Rell, who sang beautifully at breakfast. We enjoyed Maine humor from Colby friend Alan Lewis, our speaker, and applauded the team effort of Jay French, Dick Schmaltz, Muff Symonds Leavitt, Gerry Tays, and Jan Griffith in reaching new heights giving to the Colby Fund. Michael McCabe received a Colby Brick Award, and if he had to climb the stage to accept one more award for the class (biggest participation increase, largest class gift, largest three-year gift to endowment) he might have fainted! * A few notes from classmates not at reunion: Bob and Brenda Phillipps Gibbons are aboard the Aggie G in a Marion, Mass., harbor this summer. “Look for mooring #539—love to see you anytime.” * Nancy and Whit Coombs have three children and seven grandchildren. Whit works four days and spends long weekends at the Jersey shore. He’s working on a book tracing the Coombs family in this country, which allows trips to New England. * Ceylon Barclay sent Christmas cards to his KDR brothers to “talk up reunion” to no avail. He plans to see Ralph Bradshaw in October. * Bill Alexander says “Life is pretty steady and smooth flowing.” The Downeast Scenic Railroad, his project for several years, started its season Memorial Day weekend. * Ann Tracy is “too hooked on teaching to quit entirely.” In successive semesters she’s presenting Revenge Tragedy, Literary Evolution of the Vampire, freshman English, and Latin I. Wow!
