I am thrilled to present three first-time submissions! Alison Thomas Vietze and husband Richard have 18-year-old triplets (two girls and a boy) entering college. Son Will will be a freshman at Colby. * Katie Critchlow Luther moved to North Dakota after graduation to earn an M.S. in geology from UND. She works for the North Dakota Department of Health as a rule manager in the drinking water program. Married 28 years, Katie and husband Mark have three children. Daughter Megan Couser, 27, is married and teaches international baccalaureate biology at a high school in Kalispell, Mont. Son Corporal Jed Luther, 22, is married and currently on his second deployment with the U.S. Marine Corps. He will attend college after his active duty is complete. Youngest son Samuel, 13, entered seventh grade this fall. * Capt. Margaret Carlton Bash, M.D., M.P.H., is commissioned in the U.S. Public Health Service and is board certified in pediatric infectious diseases. After medical school at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, and residency at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, she and husband Craig Bash worked at the Indian Health Service hospital in White River, Ariz., then returned to Bethesda for subspecialty training. She currently conducts research on bacterial vaccines and recently worked with the Meningitis Vaccine Project that developed and is implementing a vaccine to prevent epidemic meningitis in sub-Saharan African countries.* Jim O’Sullivan ’82 and Melise Maggioni-O’Sullivan celebrated their 26th anniversary in August. They still live in Needham and both are self-employed. Jim is a gymnasium flooring contractor servicing all of New England, including Colby, and Melise runs their real estate property management business, leasing two 20,000-square-foot office buildings to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Their oldest son graduated from Dartmouth in 2009 and works for a DC strategic consulting firm. Their daughter is a Dartmouth sophomore, and their youngest son, an all-league baseball player, will be a junior at Roxbury Latin School. “Maybe our third child is the charm and we’ll have a future White Mule athlete!” * Still in Monterey, Calif., Paulette Lynch and husband Ken Peterson celebrated their 25th anniversary. * Congrats to Beth Pniewski Wilson on receiving the Colby Brick Award at our reunion. She writes that Renee Ross Nadler will join her tennis group this fall at the Thoreau Club in Concord, Mass. * Joel Harris, Scott Vandersall, Bob Clark, and Steve Pfaff enjoyed a “post-reunion” golf outing in New Hampshire. “Never have a Phi Delt, Tau Delt, Chopper, and Deke gotten along so well,” says Joel. * A former lobbyist for the Podesta Group, Dale Oak returned to work in the front office of the U.S. House Committee on Appropriations. Dale’s daughter, Anna, is a freshman at Northeastern. * Although Judith Greene Stewart was traveling in Europe during reunion, she “was thrilled to finally attend a Colby commencement on the library lawn” with goddaughter Mara Bensson ’11, daughter of Steve and Dr. Jean Siddall Bensson. * Finally, as visual arts curator for Colby’s Bixler Art and Music Library, Margaret Libby is conducting oral interviews with and preparing artwork of Colby’s illustrious and forgotten alumnae for a special bicentennial exhibit on campus in fall of 2012. Yours truly is happy to be a part of this project, which will feature Colby’s pioneering varsity women’s ice hockey team.
