Britt Carlson Anderson is an avid traveler and sailor, having obtained her USCG captain’s license in 2007. She lives in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. * Recently retired Janna Vaughan Kasarjian is trying to reinvent herself as she suddenly faces unstructured free time. Children and grandchildren to visit, books to read, friends, travel, aerobics, yoga, New Hampshire (still home), and NYC await her. “Not sure where the road will take me, but I intend to relish the ride.” * Help wanted: Mary Gourley Mastin is looking for a non-shedding puppy. * Peter Fellows and his wife, Cathy, are await the late October arrival of two recently born Bichon puppies, Emma and Colby, who will fill the void left by their Bichon predecessors, Teddy and Cricket, who lived good, long lives. Pete and Cathy retired from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg (N.C.) Schools in 2012, where Cathy was a principal and Pete taught middle-school children with autism. They moved to a fifth-floor oceanfront condo in North Myrtle Beach, S.C., a year ago and are loving the quiet life there: beach-watching, reading, sightseeing, being active in their church, and enjoying their six grandchildren when they come to visit. Pete is still an avid Red Sox fan. Attending our 50th reunion is on his bucket list. * Rob Sears of the Philippines is into brevity: “What’s new? The most important thing is that I’m still alive.” * Bob Adams survived a recent mini Tau Delta Phi reunion hosted by George Cain at George’s home in the Berkshires, attended by eight brothers from seven states. George and Bob were joined by John Eiseman, Stu Wantman, Ed Burrell, Howard Kowal ’65, Bernie Davidson ’68, and Alan Crosby ’68. Two others canceled at the eleventh hour for fear their Jan Plan advisors may still be trying to track them down. * We send our sympathies to the family of Tom Hodsdon, who passed away in February after a long illness. * “Happily uneventful” is the way Linda Mitchell Potter describes her life these days: volunteer work, seeing old friends, gardening, skiing more than 60 days last winter, raising two kittens, traveling to Boston or NYC to see grandchildren. She and Lee ’67 will take an autumn Caribbean cruise. Linda is one of many classmates involved in our 50th reunion planning, which is well underway. * Peter Lax sends greetings from Oregon, where he is still a board member of L’Arche Portland, a community for people with and without disabilities. He’s still working “part part part time,” which doesn’t interfere with his Columbia River fishing. “Okay—I sit in a boat and watch the river flow by. Looking to sell vintage hockey equipment. Watched the World Cup with Mandy and Fran Finizio. My condolences to good friend Ken Mukai ’68, whose wife passed away this past spring.” * A letter written by a teacher in 1931 to her mother 150 miles away was delivered 83 years later to the teacher’s niece and mother’s granddaughter Annie MacMichael of Cornville, Maine, after it turned up in the Pittsfield, Maine, post office. The writer apologized for not writing sooner! Read the whole story, picked up by many papers and CBS and ABC TV stations, by Googling “83-year-old letter.” * I love your news. Keep it coming!
