19 February 2007 from Bob Washburn
We moved to our new seaside condo home in November 2005, after living in Westboro, MA for 32 years.  Pat and I have been sailors for 30 years, and decided to shorten the trip to the yacht club and our boat.

I am still doing sales performance and consulting in the Americas and Europe. I find time to do volunteer work at the USS Joseph P. Kennedy (DD-850), a Cold War destroyer berthed at Battleship Cove, Fall River MA. Last year I recruited a team of US Navy Prep School students to clean, sand and paint Kennedy's motor whaleboat. A picture is at the photo page. Looking forward to seeing classmates at our 45th reunion in 2008.

Veterans Memorial Dedication
On 11 November 2006 several members of our class participated in the dedication ceremony for the Veterans Memorial on campus. Those attending were Dick Power, Bill Zollo, Dick Curran, Dave Sawyer, Jason Sokolov and John Xenakis. The Veterans Memorial is a must visit when on campus.

The Memorial site is here.

July 7, 2005 from Jim Maiellano (ENG)
After retiring I began a new career as a Personal Trainer and am enrolled in an MS program in Exercise Science at Bridgewater State. I have been certified as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist by NSCA and an Advanced Personal Trainer by NCSF. Both are nationally recognized certifications. I am currently working at Healthtrax in Hanover, MA.

March 10, 2005 from Charlie Nahabedian
Hope all my classmates and their families are well. Barb and I are busy working: she is teaching special ed and I am consulting, teaching grad classes, and managing a seniors housing complex. We still walk a lot and sing in the church choir, amongst other things.

In our spare time, we fly to Milwaukee (younger daughter and son-in-law) or travel to Rockville, MD (older daughter, son-in-law and two grandkids). We still have family in New England, but make it there these days mostly for family gatherings. Perhaps another class reunion will work. Cheers!

I guess retirement is just not in the cards for me. I have recently accepted a position as a Town Manager with a 5 year contract. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to wait until I'm 73 to enjoy all the rest of you in the good life.

November 24, 2004 from Paul Chandler
Since the 2003 reunion, I have retired and started to enjoy life without having to fight rush hour traffic or worry about what my boss might think. The year has included quite a bit of travel including trips to London, Boston, Maine, New Brunswick, Montreal, Toronto and Ohio. I've played a lot of golf and am involved in several volunteer projects. Charlotte & I have a married son, Jimmy (no grandchildren) and a daughter, Judy who earned an MPH degree in May.

October 13, 2004 from Randall Moore
On July 30, 2004 my wife Sally and I retired and have relocated to Cape Cod (Mashpee). We are enjoying the very busy time getting our new home in order. I am still finding time to pilot my Experimental Aircraft.

September 17, 2004 from Dave Sawyer
Dave and Cyndy Sawyer celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary (4 September 1964) on 11 September 2004 at a celebration hosted by their children. This event can be found at

NU graduates who were members of the wedding party were Brad Chase ED 1963, Stewart Collins BA 1962, Virginia (O'Brien) Stewart ED 1966, Cyndy (Goodwin) Sawyer ED 1966, Dave Sawyer ED 1963, Kathryn (MacKinnon) Nicholson BA 1966, Bill Bregoli E 1966, Susan (Greene) Faye LA 1966

Does this set a record for NU graduates in a wedding party? Let us know if it doesn't and provide the details.

September 9, 2004, from Dick Power
The Class of '63 ROTC guys will be having a mini-reunion down in Annapolis on September 10-11. Dick Power, Joel Levanson, Jim Cademartori and Jim Marshall will be there renewing old friendships and socializing with current ROTC Cadets in their senior year. Then on Saturday we'll be on hand to cheer and celebrate the Huskies victory over Navy. I'll report out with some photos later.
