Tony Ruvo wrote that it’s an exciting time for him and Mary Jane as their oldest grandson, Anthony, visits colleges. He will graduate from high school in June and has decided to follow the warm weather. Tony and Mary Jane were looking forward to their annual trip to Antigua in early February followed by a two-month stay on Hilton Head Island. “Anywhere but in sub-zero N.J.” * Bob Younes’s only bad news is that he has colon cancer. He was being treated with chemotherapy and was to have surgery in February. Other than that, life has been good. His children are grown and working, and he and his wife are happy after 32 years of marriage. Bob plans to return to work as medical director for the Montgomery County Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation once his treatment is completed. He is an avid collector of India’s princely state silver rupees and has coins from every past and present country in the world. *The health of Gladys Frank Bernyk and her husband has been a deterrent to traveling the last few years, but they hit all seven continents and some 85 countries before that. * Joan (Crowell) ’60 and Skip Tollette spend a fair amount of time in the summer with Eve and Ian Tatlock in the Thousand Islands and spent Thanksgiving with them in Key Largo, Fla. Skip had a phone conversation with Marlene and Mike Ferber. Mike has won national and international championships in handball, and he teaches spinning classes. Skip and Joan ran into Deanie Whitcomb Wolf ’49 at their local theater. They were going to have dinner with Bev (Johnson) ’60 and Keet Arnett and expected to see Valerie and Bob Marier ’60 soon. Skip and Joan play golf and walk the beach (Vero Beach, Fla.), and Joan plays tennis. * John Shore was sorry he and Ronnie missed the 55th. They have nine grandchildren. They were in China this fall and get to NYC regularly for shows, food, art, and some work. John just left the Colby museum’s Board of Governors after 20-something years. It was a very enjoyable and rewarding experience. One of John’s philosophy professors, John Clark, became a friend in later life, around 1980, when he came to visit them in South Florida and they visited his cottage in Maine. John also had philosophy classes with President Bixler at night at his home. An interesting background for a lawyer who has been in business ever since. * John and Denny Kellner Palmer attended the 55th reunion and viewed the Lunder Collection at the art museum. Later in the summer they returned with Karen (Beganny) ’63 and Skeeter Megathlin to see the Bernard Langlais exhibit. In June their whole family (15 of them, the youngest being 7 and the two oldest 77) climbed Mt. Washington and stayed at Lakes of the Clouds. They were fortunate to have fabulous weather. “It’s all about building those memories.” Aaron and Cyndy Crockett Mendelson visited John and Denny in the fall for a weekend at their cottage on Panther Pond. Guy ’57 and Eleanor Ewing Vigue ’57 and Skeeter and Karen joined them for Saturday dinner. * Jack Pallotta and Pat Richmond Stull were entertained by Aaron and Cyndy Crockett Mendelson in their Naples home in early January. They solved many problems, again, over dinner. The only complication was that Jack’s right arm was in a sling following rotator cuff surgery. He hoped to be back on the links by the end of March. * Please keep the news coming. I always love to hear from you.
