Ken Young left his position as executive director at Kennebec Valley Council of Governments in June 2013. He’s in the process of rebalancing his portfolio—life and work. He’s interweaving some consulting work with more sailing, gardening, and travel both in the U.S. and abroad. He’s returning to golf and fishing and adding more hiking to the agenda— there are still a lot of 4,000-footers in New England he hasn’t scaled. The adjustment to a different workload is a challenge, but he is really enjoying the changes. He also reports that he, Steve Ford, and Judy Frost are part of a group organizing their 50th Gardiner High School reunion this summer. * John Leopold and his wife, Terry, went to Santa Fe for a long weekend and visited the traveling Vietnam memorial wall. They found the name of David Barnes, who died April 28, 1968. John noted that he’s been gone twice as long as he lived. David was his first Colby friend. He remembers him warmly and misses him greatly. * George Rideout’s highlight of 2013 was his all-family Rideout reunion held in New Hampshire the last week of June. They were 26 in all. His wife, Mary (Weller) ’69, is deceased (October 2006, ovarian cancer), but he was sure that she was looking down on them from heaven. He continues on the board of Veritas Christian Academy, now in its fourth year with more than 75 students, and on the elder board of Westgate Church. He has completed 25 years with the Open Church and Gravity Research foundations. He travels when he can to see daughter Amy and son Drew and their families, and he plans to travel to Niger to be with sons Ian and Kevin and their families over Christmas this year. * Glenna White Crawforth loves being a grandma—finally. Her grandson is almost 2 years old and lives near Portland, Ore. She travels to see him about every six weeks. She’s still loving retirement and has discovered pickleball, which she describes as like tennis for old folks. She says she can’t play tennis with two fake knees, but pickleball is doable. * Mary Jo Calabrese Baur and Steve Campbell joined Mary Jo’s daughter Christine on a tour of Ireland, where they saw the impressive Cliffs of Moher. * Jane Morrison retired as director of community relations and development at Rumford (Maine) Hospital last February. She spent the ensuing year keeping the volunteer program together as her other duties were split among sister hospitals. They now have a new director who is taking on the volunteers, and Jane has been able to take on some major responsibilities for the Dixfield Historical Society. * Arthur Brennan was on Mayflower Hill in late April for an Alumni Council meeting and spoke with our trustee classmates, Joe Boulos and Bill Goldfarb. Both are very pleased with the selection of David Greene as Colby’s next president and expect him to be a dynamic leader. The inauguration is set for September with more details to follow from the College. * Steve Ford and his children (including Bill Ford ’05) and grandchildren surprised his wife, Mary, in March with a 40th wedding anniversary party with more than 80 people. He reports that Ken Young, Lou Champagne ’67, and Eric Meindl ’67 are expanding their annual Zeta Psi reunions to include all Zetes from the classes of 1965 to 1970. The reunion is held in West Gardiner, Maine, during Colby’s Reunion Weekend. Any Zete they have not been able to reach should contact Steve at email@example.com. Last but not least, preliminary planning has started on the 50th reunion for the Class of 1968; anyone interested in being involved should contact Steve at firstname.lastname@example.org.
