Nelson Beveridge called to say he heard that George Pirie sold his Georgia home of 37 years and moved to Hawaii. Nelson was also in contact with Al ’52 and Joan Martin Lamont ’52, who left New London, N.H., for a home in Florida. * Pete Bell’s daughter sent an e-mail that her dad passed away Feb. 2. * Virginia Falkenbury Aronson will be treated to a trip to Vienna in July. She plans to visit her son and brother in Prague as well. Ginnie sends along a message to all Colby friends to have “good health and God’s blessings.” * Martin Bruehl sent a quick “hello” via e-mail and says he is aging gracefully. * Quinn and Ruth Sheehan Bersani regretfully missed our last reunion because of health reasons, but they now are okay. Quinn said that Carolyn English Caci gave them a great description of what they missed. They, Carolyn, and Barbara Cheeseman Hooper ’52 all live at Brooksby Village in Peabody, Mass. Ruth and Quinn celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary in April and planned to spend a week at Von Trapp Lodge in Vermont with a daughter and family. * Busy Helen Koniares Cleaves sent a long note about meeting with Colby friends in early April: lunch with Joan Rooney Barnes and dinner with Ann Burnham Deering ’55. Helen says that she and Ann are looking forward to getting out on the golf courses together soon. Helen is still involved in real estate (Coldwell-Banker) but finds time to attend her grandson’s soccer, basketball, and lacrosse games at Waynflete School in Portland, Maine. He will be off to college in the fall. Her oldest grandson was slated to graduate from Swarthmore in June, and another grandson attends Bates. Helen hopes to attend a few functions at her late husband’s 60th reunion at Bowdoin. Then she will be taking visiting friends from Florida to Colby to check out the Lunder art exhibition this summer. * Arthur Klein writes that his life has changed after living in New York City for so many years. He and his wife have moved to a retirement community of only 400 people in Maryland. Now I quote (because I like his description): “All our needs are taken care of, and our families live nearby. In the morning we can actually hear the birds and see the sunshine … not hidden behind tall buildings. We are seeing parts of Maryland and learning about a whole new world—THE SOUTH. We do miss the Colby events that took place in NYC.” * I want to add that now and then I hear from my Colby roommate, Diane Chamberlin Starcher ’54. She is in the process of moving from France to a new home in Florida. That is quite a change for her and George.
