Maren Stoll Fischer, Carlene Perry Brown, Marion Porter Potter, and Gail Harden Schade traveled up and down the west coast of Norway on a mail boat cruise that crossed the Arctic Circle last June. They had a great time and planned to cruise around New Zealand in March, starting and finishing in Sydney. * Pat Sturges Aufdenberg planned to spend time in Palm Springs with her brother and sister, escaping Cleveland’s winter weather. There’s a good possibility she’ll spend several months in Switzerland—not skiing (two hip replacements), but enjoying beautiful weather and scenery, improving her French, and eating cheese and drinking wine without guilt. She’s signed up for a fall Road Scholar trip to Greece, Turkey, Crete, and Malta. Pat exercises regularly so she can enjoy all the travel. * Jock Knowles was at Colby in January to attend the recognition dinner for former Colby hockey coach Jack Kelly. * News of the Maine winter makes Janice Rideout Carr appreciate California all the more. Janice talks with Eunice Bucholz Spooner by telephone now and then, and they visit whenever Janice is in Maine. * Carol Shoemaker Rasmussen’s son, Erik, came home just before Christmas and lives with Carol. His homecoming was wonderful, and they had many family gatherings. * Ralph Galante resides on Merrymeeting Lake, New Durham, N.H., in the summer. They have all the grandkids up for a month and enjoy water sports. He spends winters in Bonita Springs, Fla., enjoying the warmer weather and golf. * Chet Lewis is still alive, still retired, and still in East Lansing. Last year he and his wife traveled to Chicago, where their two daughters and sons-in-law joined them. They celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving in Nebraska at their younger daughter’s and were in Rhode Island for American Thanksgiving. Their son, Daniel ’94, is pursuing a career in nursing as an R.N. supervisor for an East Lansing nursing home. * Last May Eunice Bucholz Spooner attended her granddaughter’s graduation from Proctor Academy in Andover, N.H. While there she met 10 classmates for lunch. A good time was had by all: Debbie Wilson Albee, Judy Ingram Hatfield, Janet Grout Williams, Dottie Baldridge Dzenis, Wendy McWilliam Denneen, Julie Klafstad Runnells, Gail Longenecker Brown, Carolyn Webster Lockhart, Rosemary Athearn Smith, and Betsy Perry Burke ’61. In July Eunice toured the expanded Colby Museum of Art with Tony ’57 and Bev Jackson Glockler. “Incredible!” * Steve Curley, as usual, makes us laugh. During a trip to Colby for Family Homecoming Weekend it was asked: “How many Colby grads does it take to jump-start a battery?” Ray Berberian was looking for the hood latch, Phil Shea was trying to work the cable clamps, and Ed Marchetti was trying to understand “red to red and black to black.” Many thanks to AAA for answering the call and starting Steve’s car! * Peg Jack Johnston went to Ethiopia for three weeks in November. She reminds us that polio is unfortunately still alive and well. There was a big outbreak in Somalia, which spread in small numbers to Kenya, South Sudan, and Ethiopia. However, we’re still on track to eliminate polio by 2018 thanks to Rotary. * Wendy McWilliam Denneen celebrated a late Christmas in California with daughter Sue and son Matt and family. It’s a new family tradition with East Coast and West Coast grandchildren. In February Sue cruised the Panama Canal with Doug ’58 and Judy Ingram Hatfield and Al ’58 and Kay German Dean ’59. * Juan and Jane Holden Huerta had a wonderful holiday season with visits from both sons, Juan ’92 and Jon ’95. They enjoyed time with their only grandchild, Victoria, who is quite the character at 22 months. Richard and Susan Macomber Vogt describe her as a real “pistol.” In October Jane checked off an item on her bucket list when they visited Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest, and Prague, traveling by train and public transportation.
