Duties, lessons and opportunities at 60
In The Providence Journal, Dan Doyle ’72, who turned 60 on Jan. 14, commented about becoming a septugenerian Baby Boomer. Doyle challenged his generation to “rediscover the idealism that defined our youth and that may have yielded…to pragmatism. Our sustenance can come from our selflessness. Our good deeds can benefit our families, youth leagues, charities and churches. These deeds or projects need not be large; rather they can simply create a ‘chipping effect’ that steadily dissolves a problem or challenge.” Doyle is founder and executive director of the Institute for International Sport at the University of Rhode Island.
