By the time you read this, our 45th reunion will be history (what happened to our classmates, and who were all those old people?). Hope we behaved ourselves! Jane Finkeldey Stephenson looked forward to reunion. “There is a Tau Delt reunion at the Samoset on Wednesday and Thursday nights. Just finished a conference call with Bernie Finkle, Ken Lane, Alan Crosby, and Chris Balsley—the five of us have organized this event, which has taken on a life of its own. Hopefully we will still be 1) alive and 2) in reasonable shape when we get to Waterville on Friday. Time will tell!” Several could not attend, including Steven Campbell: “Mary Jo and I are planning to be at the Portland Museum of Art and visit at the Thursday night reception. However, we are not going on to Colby. Later in the summer we’ll meet up with friends for a small reunion on the South Shore below Boston. The 50th is our next objective.” Peter Roy said, “Sorry I’ll miss you guys on this one but will be heading Down East on a three-masted schooner. I’ll catch you at 50.” * In other matters, Glenna White Crawforth says, “Life is good. I’m finally a grandmother, and I’m enjoying retirement. I spend spring and fall in Boise, Idaho, my home for the past 42 years; winters in Palm Springs; and summers on the Oregon coast. I’ve done a lot of traveling and have only two places left on my bucket list—Japan and Israel, which I’ll visit this fall and next spring respectively.” * Ken Young resigned as executive director of the Kennebec Valley (Maine) Council of Governments. He plans to continue providing consulting services in the area and will be active in area charities and with the Kennebec River Initiative. “I’d like to rebalance. Instead of working 40 hours a week, I’d like to work 24 hours and play the other 16.” * Thom Rippon is national Fix the Debt Pennsylvania co-chair and hopes that Washington “is beginning to act, ever so slightly, in a more bipartisan way to address our long-term fiscal problems.” He can be seen on Facebook appearing at Lebanon Valley College. * As for me, this is my “swan song” after two terms as your class correspondent. Although I am a little nostalgic about leaving, I’m confident that my successor, Lynne Oakes Camp, will do a great job. Bill Goldfarb: “To Peter Jost: Thanks for a job very well done, Peter.” Thanks, Bill. All the best to you and all our classmates! * Lynne Oakes Camp takes over: It was great to see so many old friends at our 45th reunion. Sixty-one class members and 40 guests attended. Our class activities began with a pre-reunion tour of the Portland Museum of Art and a reception at the home of Sheri and Joe Boulos. On Friday our class was at the Maine Lakes Resource Center for a lecture on the ecology of the Belgrade Lakes followed by a luncheon at the nearby Village Inn. This reunion coincided with Colby’s bicentennial, and there were many activities to celebrate it, including the Bicentennial Bash Barbeque on Friday. On Saturday many of us attended the traditional lobster bake followed by our class reception and dinner. Two former faculty members attended the dinner as guests: George Coleman (geology/registrar) and Harriett Matthews (art). Professor Joe Reisert, current chair of the Government Department, was our dinner speaker and provided a thought-provoking address. The classmate who traveled the farthest to attend was Rose Buyniski Eriksson, who came from Sweden. Marjorie Reed McLaughlin from Augusta, Maine, had the shortest trip. Special kudos to our class president Steve Ford, who was awarded a Colby Brick by the College for all the work he has done for Colby over the years. Steve will remain as our class president for the next five years while I try to fill Peter Jost’s shoes. Please send your news, and I hope to see you all at our 50th reunion in 2018, if not before.
