It is always good to hear from our class. Here is the latest news. Please email me your updates so I can include it next time. Kathy Anderson Jewell retired after 21 years of teaching in June 2013. Many changes were coming and after surviving middle school for that long, she decided it was time to regain some sanity. Chip and Kathy took a two-week Viking River cruise through France. They started in Paris and went north to the beaches of Normandy, then returned to Paris and went south ending in Avignon. Highlights were Monet’s Gardens in Giverny and the Normandy coastline where the D-Day invasions happened 70 years ago. They also enjoyed winery tours and visited Provence and the Pont du Gard aqueduct. They had amazing weather and enjoyed the marvelous sights. They welcomed granddaughter Coretta Ann Jewell on June 9, 2014. Proud parents are their son Curtis and his wife Julia. Daughter Kristin and husband Zack and 2-year-old Nora added a new baby in July. Kathy’s family is growing rapidly and she is not bored with retirement. Carol Fleming, P’07, P’09 reported that one of their big changes this year is completing their own retirement home after being renters for 25 years in Corolla, N.C. It opened on Memorial Day for 2014 rentals. Check it out at #1231 on Southern Shores Realty. As they put it, “We feel shorely blessed to make this long held dream come true!” Scott and Carol are also going to be grandparents for the first time in October as their middle daughter Charis will be having a daughter of her own. All three Loomer children are teachers in Maryland––Baltimore and Frederick (two are also Hood alums) so they visit frequently. Life is Good! Mary Lynn Furtek Eubanks has been teaching special needs students for 37 years in Alcoa, Tenn. She is trying to decide when to retire. It will be soon. Larry and I, Nancy Ludwick Warrenfeltz, are doing well in Pensacola. Larry just published a new book, Sea Stories: A Virtual Wastebasket of Random Memories. Let me know if you want to buy a signed copy. It is a wonderful book and has many stories about Hood College and theU.S. Naval Academy. It has received great reviews from our friends!
