Irv Faunce and his wife, Jan Collins, enjoyed two weeks in Pakistan recently. They were invited by a student who had spent an academic year with them as an exchange student under a program administered by the U.S. Department of State. It was a great educational experience for all of them. Irv reports that his host family in Pakistan was generous, warm, and welcoming. Irv and Jan enjoyed the food, the culture, and visits to many sacred and historic sites and to the city of Lahore. Pictures are posted on Irv’s Facebook page. * Clark and Kathy Haskell Whittier were named 2012 Citizens of the Year for the town of North Yarmouth, Maine.

Clark has served on many boards and committees throughout the almost 40 years that they have lived in North Yarmouth, and Kathy has also served on boards as well as being the town’s local news correspondent for more than 35 years. They were grand marshals for the town’s annual 2012 Fun Day. * Elaine and Kurt Swenson have been busy working on plans for a new house in Rye, N.H., very near their existing house that they’re trying to sell. Kurt and Elaine drove to Boca Grande, Fla., and stayed for the month of February. They were hoping to see C.A. and J.J. Mueller Sinton while there. Kurt reports that Terry Stratton is recovering from surgery for stomach cancer. We all wish Terry the very best. * Although she retired from substitute teaching in public school last June, Clemence Ravacon Mershon still subs in a Catholic elementary school several times a month. She also participates in Habitat for Humanity builds around the world. Her most recent building activity was a single-family house in Kyrgyzstan with an all-women’s team. This winter Clemence took advantage of an opportunity to go on stage in a wonderfully humorous and touching play, Love, Loss, and What I Wore. Although she has participated in local theater for some time, this was her first on-stage role in 35 years. She reports missing Powder and Wig days. In addition, Clemence keeps busy as the advisor for a local college Alpha Delta Pi chapter and looks forward to her daughter earning her M.P.H. soon. * Leanne Davidson Kaslow is back from 17 happy years in Birmingham, Ala., and living in northwest D.C. on California Street since June. Husband Richard retired from the University of Alabama School of Public Health to take a position with the Virginia medical system in D.C. Her son, Dan, lives in Colorado with his two children. Daughter Jess lives in Hamden, Conn., and expects to present Leanne with another grandchild. Leanne reports that she is enjoying herself and enjoying good health. * Caroline Kresky moved her practice from Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough to Ichter Thomas, a business litigation boutique. Caroline, an equity partner at Nelson Mullins, joined Ichter Thomas as a partner Aug. 16. * Sally Ray Bennett has closed a chapter of her life as she and Charlie have moved, full time, to Virginia. Sally had lived in Rhode Island since graduating from Colby, but she recently closed her house and moved to an over-55 community. Good timing for Sally as she was opening boxes in her new home the week that her old backyard had nearly three feet of snow. * Mike and Pam Cooper Picher were asked to present an overview of their work to the National Academy of Arbitrators of the U.S. and Canada at the annual meeting in Vancouver this June. The academy’s magazine says Mike and Pam, “two of the most prominent and successful arbitrators in Canada, will share the insights and experience of literally being married to the job in the course of two sparkling careers.” Mike promises to mention that they launched their successful careers on the men’s and women’s judicial boards at Colby.
