Mary Minor Evans and Beverlee ’Bev’ Simboli McFadden had an opportunity to visit in Minneapolis when Mary came down from Duluth and the McFaddens came from Berkeley for distinguished economist Daniel McFadden to receive an honorary Doctor of Science degree from the University of Minnesota. Both Bev and Mary were walking well after a broken femur (Bev) and a hip operation (Mary) which didn’t seem to slow down either one.

Frances ‘Fran’ Blasdell Hubbell writes, “Despite advancing age, hurricane Irma and 3 cranky HVAC units, life is good here on Hilton Head Island. Bridge, volunteering (with Board positions), and photography take up most of my time. I traveled to Australia and New Zealand last spring, and had a fabulous time. Next month I go to Ecuador for 10 days of bird photography, and next year to Asia. The camera gear gets heavier (or, perhaps I get weaker) each year, as do the aggravations of air travel. I am also contemplating a retirement place nearer my girls in Maryland. So, if you want a great, free location at the beach, come soon.”
