Jeff Brown moved daughter Hannah, 21, to Nashville for the summer and picked up son Alec from college in Charlotte, N.C., and brought him home to Pittsburgh. In between, Jeff traveled to Mexico City and Toronto. Jeff writes, “I had no clue that Mexico City, in particular, was such a food city, not to mention some very good tequila!” * Stan ’85 and Susan Robertson Kuzia had a busy May. Daughter Virginia graduated from Furman University. The celebration included Virginia’s aunt Lisa Kuzia Krueger ’84 and uncle Stephen Brennan ’86. A second celebration took place at the Kuzia home in Evans, Ga., when son Will graduated from Lakeside High School. He’ll attend Georgia Tech in the fall. Susan can now retire as Lakeside Chorus Boosters treasurer, and she looks forward to “Colby Moms Weekend” (AKA “the Gathering of the Colby Goddesses”) with Tracy Don MacDonald, Karen Pfeiffer Jones ’81, Karen Baumstark Porter ’81, and Michele Adams Prince ’81 in Maine. * Jen Maire Hagemann’s oldest daughter, Katie, is attending grad school at Yale for environmental science, but she is in the Netherlands and at Cambridge University this summer. Youngest daughter Leita graduated from UVM and is working for Outward Bound for the summer. After that she’ll join Jen and her husband, Henry, in their business. Jen and Henry have been restoring their 76-year-old Rhodes ketch, Arabella, with the plan of living aboard and cruising for the next year. Initial cruising plans include the ICW, so if anyone lives along the coast of New England or the ICW, e-mail Jen at email@example.com. * Diane Conley LaVangie ran the Boston Marathon and considers herself fortunate to have finished. Diane and her brother finished 30 minutes before the explosions but didn’t leave the finish area until about five minutes before the bombs went off. “Way too close for comfort—we’re both planning on running it again.” On a happier note, Diane hosted an engagement party for daughter Meg and her fiancée, Greg, Memorial Day weekend. * Sarah Perry married Paul Indelicato in August 2011 after almost 20 years together. Sarah writes, “We continue to love traveling and scuba diving and combine the two whenever possible. Most recently we were in the Galapagos and Grand Cayman and look forward to a trip to Bali and Wakatobi in Indonesia this summer.” Sarah works at Fidelity Investments as a project manager in human resources, and Paul is the owner of piAssociates, a video and web design company. * Bob Benjamin has been busy with battalion command and traveling most weekends for the army. He started at the Army War College in a two-year program leading to a master’s in strategic studies. His oldest son, Bobby, works in the Lexington school system. His older daughter finished her junior year at the University of San Diego. Jessie, a sophomore, played on the varsity softball team. Liam, a seventh grader, plays baseball. In April Bob spent a great evening in Boston catching up with Colby rugby alumni including Kate Shaw ’84, Lori Sturgeon Davis ’84, Ann Poolos Bailey ’84, and Joy Valvano ’84. * Jean Appellof Segal works and lives happily in Bedford, Mass., with husband Bob and their daughters, Jennie, 18, who is headed to Gordon College in the fall to study music education, and Katie, 20, a sophomore at Ithaca College, who spent the spring semester at Dublin City University in Ireland. Katie will spend part of her junior year in Melbourne, Australia. In Katie’s application essay, she wrote: “My ambition to study abroad began much earlier than my college career. My mother’s bedtime stories of her collegiate year in France first inspired my desire to travel and learn from many different cultures.” * Beth Ellis Tautkus’s family sounds crazy busy. Daughter Katie graduated from Central Connecticut State University with a B.S. in education this May; son Austin graduated from high school in June; and daughter Jenny graduates from the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in August. Austin is headed to Western Connecticut State University and plans to play football. Beth’s oldest, Jason, works for Simpaug Farm and with the Connecticut National Guard. Beth and her husband, Keith, teach in Ellington, Conn., at the middle school and high school respectively. Beth sees Colleen Plourde Harvey, Denise Glennon, Sue Kallio, Patty Valavanis Smith ’80, and their kids every year or so. Colleen’s daughter, Samantha, graduated this year from George Mason University. * Be well, everyone!
