L. A. King has lived in Sonoma, Calif., since 2007 and served as priest in the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California. The Reverend Dr. King preaches and celebrates at a number of congregations in the diocese. Recently one of her sermons was recorded and posted on the website of the Church of the Incarnation, Santa Rosa. * Back on the East Coast, Al Sheehy played in the annual Spring Old Farts Classic hockey tournament against Mike “Sleepy” Slavin. Al doesn’t recall recording a point in the game, but his team won in an overtime shoot out! Al plays hockey three times a week and comments that he still has stone hands and little scoring touch but enjoys the workouts tremendously. Al also bikes as much as he can, and thinks that innumerable back exercise sessions keep his sciatica under control. Al is a data analyst at MaineHealth—work is good, as are other aspects of his life. Al loves living in the Portland area (26 years now) and plans to look for a new home in the area. * After many years Larry Hill checked in from Old Greenwich, Conn., where he lives with his 16-year-old son, Harry (named after his grandfather: a self-imposed rhyme, as Larry says). Larry’s been divorced for five years and has found that Match has run its course. He’s partner in a small technology company that does Oracle-Hyperion consulting and resells open-source business intelligence software. Larry spent a weekend this summer with John Geismar, part of an annual adventure with his son before he goes to Camp Kieve in Nobleboro, which is run by Henry Kennedy ’80. Last year Larry and Harry jet-skied on Lake Winnipesaukee and stayed with Nancy Hulm Jones. This year they flew in a Waco biplane replica like the one that did aerobatics over Colby for spring carnival 1978! They also camped in the White Mountains with John and his son, Brad. Harry and Brad are good friends and canoeing partners at Kieve. * Donna Long Cummens owns and runs a tax and accounting business with her business partner on Martha’s Vineyard. They’ve been in business 15 years, and Donna is happy that Congress continues to change the tax laws! Her oldest daughter, Taryn, graduated with her pharmacy degree from Northeastern in May, passed her boards, and relocated to Washington, D.C., to work for Foer Pharmacy at Sibley Hospital. Her youngest daughter, Jessica, is a senior at Roger Williams University majoring in architecture. Jessica studied in Florence last semester and Donna, her husband, Chuck, and Taryn visited for 10 days in April. Donna said it was a fabulous trip and now it’s summer on the Vineyard, so life is good! * Jeff Wheeler sends a huge thank you to our class, which has always stepped up to a challenge. The few weeks leading up to June 30 were amazing. More than 75 classmates stepped up and participated to elevate us to a 55-percent participation level for the Colby Fund, surpassing our goal of 52 percent and raising $221,162, which beat our goal by $97,162. He also thanks our classmate for the tremendous matching gift challenge, which certainly inspired our results! GO MULES! Thanks to another classmate, our class now has a presence on Facebook. Check out Colby College Class of 1978—it’s a great way to connect, especially with reunion approaching. Hope everyone had a great summer. Please stay in touch!
