NOT IN KANSAS ANYMORE! Now the class has expanded its universe beyond Winslow. Fifteen of our classmates responded to this request for news and mentioned travel to 10 states, Africa, Europe, Caribbean islands, Mexico (not the one in Maine), and Russia. * Marty Dodge received some special recognition at Finger Lakes Community College. “A nature interpretive trail I designed in Naples, N.Y., became the Marty Dodge Nature Trail, and the area on the campus where 37 years of training for woodsmen has taken place is officially the Marty Dodge Woodsmen’s Practice Field.” Marty is off to Alaska as I compose this, having recently returned from a visit to see nesting green turtles in Costa Rica * Jann Buffinton Browning Clark and her husband fly their small aircraft and visited friends in Ariz., Fla., and the Berkshires. Jann was tracked down on Facebook by Callie Holmes Marsh, her freshman roommate. Callie lives in Iowa and visits New England periodically. * Dave Parish and Rhonda were in China and the Far East for two months in 2011, and recently returned from Europe. They summer in Ashville, N.C., and winter in Fort Lauderdale, where Dave spends “the bulk of my time teaching the history of the Jewish people in Judaica High School.” * Rick and Nancy Winslow Harwood are back from a five-week African safari. “Nothing tops the trip to Africa this winter. The animals are amazing, the scenery lush, and visits to Maasai villages were eye-opening.” Rick added 100-plus birds to his life list * John and Nancy Godley Wilson are busily remodeling their Lexington, Mass., home. They enjoyed a multi-island cruise with four other couples on a five-masted schooner in the Windward Islands last February. On their return Nancy had knee surgery. “It’s nice to walk pain-free again” * Harold Kowal and Ruth traveled to Paris, the southwest coast of France, and the Caribbean. Harold has already started planning for our 50th reunion. “I recently bought a lathe for my woodworking shop. Now I need to learn how to use it. Does anyone have any advice?” * Yes, Harold should contact Neil Clipsham, who has a “tool/woodwork/repair room in the dungeon” where he makes American Girl doll furniture. Wife Jean is upstairs making clothing for the dolls. They travel to N.YC. to visit the store where it is sold. The Clipshams are busy with their two granddaughters. “Gotta do it while you can. When they reach 10, they’ll be off with friends, and we’ll be left making clothes and furniture for each other.” * Stan Garnett joined several ’60s-vintage ATOs for a Boston reunion that featured the “then 98-year-old Thelma Hanson, who, with her husband, ran Dick’s bar across from Onie’s. Stan reports Thelma died April 4, “not six months shy of her 100th birthday” * Bud Marvin and Ann had a reunion with Peter Mudge in Fort Meyers, Fla. Pete was a Zeta Psi frat brother and best man at their wedding, and they had not seen each other in years. Bud and Ann saw President Bro Adams at a Sarasota area alumni luncheon. * Wedding bells will ring for Dave Hatch and Dale “Peanut” Rottner Nov. 3. They enjoy daily 10-mile bike rides “down by the Gulf.” He’s active with the local Moose Lodge on its scholarship committee helping to select worthy recipients. * Dave Fearon is one of our few holdouts: “I’m not retired from teaching and don’t seem to want to be. I love it as much as King Birge did when he inspired me to become a professor.” * The prize for “most mysterious response” goes to Marc Machbitz. “Let the Colby folks out there know that John Gillmor is still watching over me here in Hawaii.” * HAIL, COLBY, HAIL!
