Michael and Jean Martin Fowler support cancer research as members of the fundraising board for Fox Chase Cancer Center in Miramar Beach, Fla. They look forward with excitement to a cruise (“something for everyone!”) that will include 17 Fowler family members. Jean is planning to attend Colby Reunion Weekend this year to celebrate the bicentennial and to prepare for our 50th reunion June 5-8, 2014. Mark your calendars now! * Martha “Marty” Schatt Abbott-Shim has reconnected with Essie MacDonough Smith for ski trips and for meeting one another’s family and friends. Last fall, while exploring the Maine coast, Marty also had dinner with Betsy Crockett Tyson-Smith. From her base in Atlanta, Ga., Marty visits her four children in Colorado, California, and Oregon, where she enjoys hiking, skiing, and snowshoeing. She recently backpacked in the Tetons of Wyoming and in Patagonia, Chile. * After working as a realtor on the East Coast for 23 years, Susan Woodward traveled full time throughout the United States and Canada in her RV. She is now happily settled in Tucson, Ariz., where she is a painter, a photographer, and a writer. On her website, Susan writes, “My goal, whether painting or photographing, is to convey the richness of the landscape, the layers of color, the textures, the feeling of vastness and the transcendent feeling of being alone in the beauty of nature.” * Morgan McGinley is on the board of the Connecticut Newspaper Project, an online newspaper dedicated to important statewide issues. In addition, Morg is a mentor with the Op-Ed Project serving writers seeking to place op-eds in newspapers nationwide. The emphasis is on promoting female voices in print media. Morg worked for 42 years, 26 as editorial page editor, at the Day, a New London, Conn., newspaper for which his grandfather was the first reporter in the 1880s. * On a recent trip to New Zealand, Larry Dyhrberg enjoyed visiting his brother, playing golf, and traveling. Along the way he met long-lost relatives who share Larry’s Danish roots. Larry reports that he is happy to be back at home with his wife, Michelle, and their two teenage daughters. * Barbie Carr Howson enjoys weekly visits with her 13-month-old grandson near her home in Richmond, Va. This past fall she visited Suzy Noyes Mague in New Orleans, La. At present, Barbie is working at her winter job at the University of Richmond, reading applications for the admissions department. She looks forward to our class reunion in June 2014. * Although retired from teaching college-level American government, Steve Schoeman remains busy writing essays and giving lectures on a wide assortment of topics such as the music of Mozart and the airship Hindenburg. He also travels and attends performances of the Metropolitan Opera in New York City. * Suzy Noyes Mague and her husband, Joel, spent six weeks in Bombay (Mumbai), India, while he taught a graduate chemistry course. They plan to remain in India visiting the holy city of Varanasi, Ranthambore National Park, and the Kerala backwaters. * Natalie “Lee” (Bullock) ’65 and John Silver celebrated their 48th wedding anniversary with an NCL cruise to Roatán, Belize, and Cozumel. They snorkeled into deep water, tried helmet diving, and generally “had a great relaxing time!” * There is sad news to report: Our classmate George Shur passed away in November. His memorial service was in DeKalb, Ill. A scholarship has been established in his name at Northern Illinois University. George will be missed and always remembered.
