FALL 2016 \ PIERCE 55 Alumni! I am now teaching nurse candidates at West Coast University as an adjunct professor, but still performing on stage, in interactive theatre (AKAshows. com), and recently appeared in "The Wedding Pact," a Matt Berman film. Thanks to my husband, Stan, for all the support he has shown as well! 1972 Jere Colman '72 reports, "My artist wife, Alexandra Colman (née Palmer) and I live two and a half hours west of Seattle on the North Olympic Peninsula across the Salish Sea from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Planning on retiring this year and doing some traveling in the good old U.S.A. We have no children, but we have had many rescue dogs (and one cat) to keep us on our toes. Once in this area (to accept a Seattle job offer), it was hard to return to the East Coast. Since then, efforts have included two years of safety equipment sales (125 lines of equipment for power line and logging industries), nine years of high climbing/rigging (with a personal climbing record height of 275 feet), seven years of art sales (based in Montecito, California), and juried art show sponsorship (throughout the West Coast and the Southwest), and last, but not least, twenty+ years as president of my own kitchen design corporation with sales on Washington's North Olympic Peninsula, Seattle, and Anchorage. What a life. I have fond memories of fellow students, Howard Sargent (Anthropology), Mr. Dion (Math), and all the awesome concerts we were privy to at FPC (now FPU) in the late '60s and early '70s. I am truly blessed. Hello to D.H. Dodge and M. Cunningham." On August 19, 2016, Charlie Mann '72 , executive director of Celestial Manna, will be honored by receiving a trophy and reward for serving the Latino community of the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area.

Glenn Rubin '72 writes, "I still keep in contact with my two original housemates after 44 years - my two amigos: Leon 'Billy' Flesdrager '72 and Bruce 'Pa' Barrett '71." 1973 Steve Iglehart '73 writes, "Alison and I live just north of Charlotte, North Carolina. She is a financial advisor for RW Baird and hoping to retire in the next few years. Our daughter, Laura, works in the fashion industry. I am retired from full-time teaching, but tutoring in Spanish and ESL online and one-to-one. I'm also volunteering for Habitat and in a Hispanic outreach initiative locally. Best wishes to all my classmates!" Daniel O'Donnell '73 is wondering, "Where's Tim Ouellette '73? Originally from Peabody, Massachusetts. Name may be misspelled. Any info please send to Thanks." Richard E. Schwartz '73 reports, "No different than last time. I've been a retired radiological technologist for twenty-nine years from Maimonides Medical Center, Brooklyn, New York. I got married 1/15/72 and have two daughters." 1974 Frederic "Fred" Levy '74 writes, "I'm living in Port Washington, New York, and have been married for 35 years. My daughter is finishing up her Ph.D. in Psychology. She is engaged to be married summer 2017. I merged my insurance broker business with another firm in 2014." 1975 Richard "Rick" Haskell '75 writes, "I'm director of fiscal services at Northern Essex Community College, Haverhill, Massachusetts. My son graduated from Franklin Pierce in 2010. I just got back from Niagara Falls, Ontario, vacation with wife Noreen, and grandson, Jacob. I have attended several alumni Red Sox games in past years, a fun time." 1976 John Tepe '76 writes, "I am the North America service introduction and infrastructure change control Joseph "Joe" Piccardi '79 writes, "I am enjoying, as I always do, living in Rhode Island, especially in the summer. I played golf Friday on the island of Jamestown and then again on Saturday morning. Later in the day we went with my granddaughter to Polo, U.S.A vs. Italy, great match; great tailgating, spent Monday evening in Newport, R.I., to hear the Vienna Piano Trio make their American debut. I hope all of my friends from my class and those in the classes around me are also having a great summer. I turned sixty-five this summer; I don't know where the time went. In this photo, my granddaughter and I are waiting to high five the players after the polo match." James "Jimmy" McDonald III '75 writes, "I am retired and am now a Maine Fishing Guide. I recently had a fellow '75 classmate, Neal Clay, out for a two day charter on Rangeley Lake. Plenty of good times and fish!!"
