Robert Hauck settled on Martha’s Vineyard after retiring as deputy director of the American Political Science Association. Though retired, he is not without direction, dividing his time between painting and writing mystery novels that involve art. He’s kept his ties to Maine, returning every summer to paint. Settling into the Martha’s Vineyard local food movement, he now has a flock of chickens. Grandchildren who live on the island made the move from Washington, D.C., complete. * Future reunions may ensue, as Rob has joined Annette Sandrock as Martha’s Vineyard resident. Annette copes with tourists that increase every time President Obama visits. She works for Pathways Projects Institute, a nonprofit based on Martha’s Vineyard and in NYC that encourages collaboration among artists from all disciplines. Her daughter is taking over her dad’s law practice, one son is an aviation electronics technician studying to be an engineer, and her other son is executive director of the Sandrock Foundation in New Hampshire. Annette has one granddaughter and another on the way. * Paul Cronin is seeking an advanced degree in relaxation and leisure—his own. Paul splits his time between Massachusetts and Florida. * Brian Kopke retired five years ago after 35 years as a Unitarian minister in Southold, Long Island (5), Philadelphia (7), and Ottawa, Ontario (23). He can get back to first loves: family, drawing, painting, and woodworking (mostly wooden toys). Triple bypass surgery this spring set tight parameters for him during the healing process, but he planned to hike in Washington State with his daughter in September. * There’s another empty pulpit as Led Baxter retired in June 2012 from 40-plus years of ministry in the United Church of Christ in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and New York. Led went back to the house where he grew up, in Newington, Conn. In addition to working on home fix-up projects and catching up with family and friends, he planned to teach adult Bible study. In the spirit of our liberal arts education, he would love to be in touch with anyone about “faith and science.” * As part of a trip to Cape Breton, N.S., and to the East Coast, Larry Sears caught up with Dick Hunnewell, his wife, and their two sons. He was pleased to leave the heat of El Paso in June and to spend time in the lake country of New Hampshire with the Hunnewells. * Bud Graff is working on a third act. He and Jim Wilson volunteered to work with archaeologists to excavate a colonial-era farm. After several weeks of careful excavation, the team located a building and artifacts from the period. Bud enjoyed the work so much that he’s considering giving up golf to dig in the dirt. Or he might just call divots his latest archaeological excavations. * Leanne Davidson Kaslow has been back in D.C. for a year after 18 years in Birmingham. Her husband, Richard, was contemplating retirement when he went to work for the VA in D.C., where he finds his work on behalf of returning soldiers very positive. Leanne’s daughter, Jessica, and husband Sean live in the New Haven area. Leanne and Richard traveled to Vietnam in October. * Joanna Snyder Richardson was appointed library strategy advisor within the Division of Information Services. The position supplies planning and advice to the university librarian. * Chris and JJ Mueller Sinton enjoyed seeing Elaine and Kurt Swenson last March in Boca Grande for golf. They enjoy trips to Bermuda and entertaining grandchildren. * Fred Beyer moved from Wisconsin to Ellsworth, Maine, to be near twin grandsons, Joey and Billy, 4. * Nick Hadgis continues as dean of the School of Hospitality Management at Widener University. Nick and his wife, Anna, enjoyed vacation time in Maine and New Hampshire. In November they plan to travel to Hong Kong for the wedding of one of Nick’s graduates. * Sadly, I report the death of Fred Hopengarten’s mother, Doris Rose Hopengarten, Class of 1940. We send our condolences and best wishes to Fred and his family.
