This column will begin with a note of deepest sadness. Deborah Bernstein, daughter of Caroline Kresky, died recently of breast cancer. Deborah graduated from Stanford University Business School and worked for 15 years at Goldman Sachs, Pequot Capital Management, and Aquiline Capital Partners. We express our sincere condolences to Caroline. * Kurt Swenson attended his 50th high school reunion at Northfield/Mt. Hermon. He reminds us that our 50th Colby reunion will be upon us very quickly. We hope that many of our classmates will make the trip in 2017. To keep busy between reunions, Kurt is building a new home in New Hampshire and serves as secretary on the New England regional board of directors of the Arthritis Foundation. * As you might recall from many past columns (as Kurt reminds us, we have had many years to read these missives), Charlie and Sally Ray Bennett hardly ever stay put very long, what with their globetrotting, visiting, and vacationing. At this time, however, Sally and Charlie are happily planted in Mechanicsville, Va., in an over-55 community. Sally has joined her church choir, her first formal singing group since the Colbyettes. While Sally is filling the air with joyful sounds, Charlie explores the many Civil War sites in the area. * Joyce Demkowicz Henckler recently traveled with her husband through Europe, visiting Barcelona, Dubai, and the Suez Canal. Joyce reckons that she has visited 50 countries since leaving the Hill in 1967. Keep traveling, Joyce! When in the United States, Joyce continues to work as the chief development officer at the University of Central Florida. * Leanne Davidson Kaslow has returned to Washington, D.C., after many years in Alabama. Leanne’s husband works for the VA medical system. They still enjoy international travel as well as frequent trips to Colorado to visit family. On the East Coast, Leanne visits her daughter in Connecticut. She was awaiting her daughter’s first child in early July.
