Randall G. Wieting has moved with his family (wife, son age 17, daughter age 16) to Kingston, Ont., where he built and opened a garden center (www.kingstonnurseries.com). He says, “Just when we should be retiring, we are starting a whole new venture!” * Anne Howard Cotton writes that she and her husband, Lee, moved to Kiawah Island, S.C., where they built a house and are enjoying the warmer weather, beautiful marshes and beaches. Anne says that in S.C. life is at a slower pace. * Janet Holm Gerber says her news hasn’t changed much. She is still very happy with work, home, and children, so no update from her. “Just wanted you to know I appreciate your work for our class,” she wrote. “Happy Valentine’s Day!” (Thanks. Much appreciated.) * Frances “Frannie” Birkinbine Welch received her Valentine’s gift a few days early when her daughter Catherine Welch ’05 home-birthed Frannie’s first grandchild in Brunswick, Maine. She is loving every moment with them and even took a week off from teaching high school to be with them. “The joy I’ve had in these past five days is indescribable.” (I’m not a grandparent yet, but I look forward to it!) * From a golf community in sunny Florida, Nancy Brunnkow Marion writes that she and husband Michael are totally retired and actively involved in tennis leagues, golf leagues, bocce leagues, and painting courses. Nancy misses New England but appreciates the wonderful lifestyle that comes with fabulous winter weather. Their son Mark is marrying in April in Colorado, and their daughter and son-in-law (also in Colorado) are making them grandparents in June. So she is sorry to miss our 40th reunion in June but sends her best to all the Class of ’72. * And speaking of our 40th reunion (I feel like a broken record here, but I know how easy it is to forget important things at our age), make plans now to return to Colby June 1-3. Dick Valone, Donna Power Stowe, Art Young, Larry Bigelow, Clark Ruff, Chris Pinkham, and I have been busy planning events for it. Please check out our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/pages/Colby-College-Class-of-1972/227500213979919 and add some pictures or comments. (Pictures would be helpful so that we can all recognize each other at the reunion.) Looking forward to seeing you then—and recognizing you!
