Swimming around some landmarks seemed like a good way for Dave Bright to celebrate his retirement. Last summer Dave defended his age-group championship in the Brooklyn Bridge Swim [from Brooklyn to Manhattan] and then traveled west to complete the Alcatraz and Tiburon swims in the San Francisco Bay area. Dave looks forward to being the “young guy” in the over-60 age group. * After living in Maine since 1980, Bill and Barby Beran Muller decided to pull up roots and head to a warmer climate in Pinehurst, N.C. Many rounds of golf are beckoning them in the years to come. * “Binkie” Cammack Closmore was happy to obtain her bird bander’s permit; she made a how-to video on banding as well as documenting the legacy of some early bird banders. She remembers her interest in birds blossoming at Colby with Dave and Mary Sue Naegele Galvin, Jim and Sally Hawk Gibson, and other biology majors. Binkie’s six children are all out of the nest! Living in Minnesota, she and husband Greg look forward to biking, skate skiing, bird watching, going to bed early, and hoping the phone doesn’t ring! * Still living in Chocorua, N.H., a small village of about 2,000 people, with husband Richard, two alpacas, Federico and Geraldo, and their hound dog, Flo, Susan Staples Smith took on a new position at LRGHealthcare in Laconia, N.H., implementing an electronic medical records system. Sue’s work as secretary of the local Kiwanis club for the past dozen years, as well as winter skiing and summer kayaking, fill out her days. * In January Laurie Fitts Loosigian and Suzie Benson Turnbull motored up to Colby for the 40th anniversary of the Colby women’s ice hockey team. They and other teammates stayed with Sue Conant Cook. Laurie and Sue were proud to play in the alumni game. Tailgating followed, and then they all watched the Colby women play. “What a blast to see so many of the girls from our old team!” * Steve Tait and partner Dave Cook are still happy innkeepers in Provincetown, Mass., at the tip of Cape Cod. They’ll celebrate [or mourn] turning 60 while touring India for three weeks. Steve can’t quite believe we are all turning 60! “Where has time gone!” * Michael Wills earned a master’s of health administration in 1980 from Washington University in St. Louis and worked for a few years as a health administrator before returning to school to become a registered nurse. Calling it the best decision in his professional life, Michael has worked at a VAMC Hospital for more than 20 years serving veterans. He married in 1980, and after 32 years he finds himself still living on Long Island. In reminiscing about the unique experience Colby provided, he remembers organic chemistry professor Dr. E.B. Reid as an extremely brilliant person with a wonderful photographic memory. [Anyone who ever had a class with Dr. Reid will surely agree!] * Breck Arnzen is proud that his middle daughter, Emme ’13, has loved her four years at Colby and all the opportunities it afforded her, including semesters abroad in Spain and Chile. Emme hopes to find an urban teaching position working with at-risk children. Breck and wife Lani have three other children: Lia, a Simmons College graduate now enrolled at the Denver School of Nursing; Annie, just finishing her junior year at Trinity College with a semester abroad in Cape Town, South Africa; and son Kwang, who is finishing high school and has been accepted at Wheaton College. Breck funds all these tuitions doing leadership consulting and executive coaching with his firm, ArnzenGroup.
