Suzanne “Susu” MacLachlan and Webb Fletcher ’87 live in Wellesley, Mass., with their three children: Katie, 13, Holt, 10, and Livvy, 7. Between school, sports, and what seems like hundreds of activities, the kids keep them on the move constantly. Susu has started doing freelance editing work, which she loves. Susu enjoys keeping in touch with friends from Colby through Facebook but was happy to see Bevin Dockray Gove in person last spring when Bevin came to Boston from Connecticut for the day. Susu also had dinner over the summer with Becca Bruce Dobberfuhl and her adorable baby boy, Henley, when they were visiting from Austin. She hadn’t seen Becca in more than 10 years, so that was a highlight of the summer. Susu had a fun get-together when she ran into Jeff and Karen Linde Packman along with their older daughter, Julia, last summer. * Tom Charlton just completed 20 years of service as pastor of the First Baptist Church of Chester, Vt., his hometown. He and his wife, Katy, now live on a small farm outside of town with their three sons—William, 15, David, 12, and Tobyn, 10—a flock of hens, and a small herd of golden retrievers. Tom says, “Life is good. It’s excellent.” He continues work with the Boy Scouts and yes, for those wondering, he still hardens his own cider. Tom says the church continues to grow significantly and to provide innovative leadership for faith communities in the 21st century. Tom reports that it’s been challenging and rewarding to invest his life in a place that has invested so heavily in his own. “I traded the ladder for the roots, and I like it. That being said, I’m putting plans together for the ‘mother of all sabbaticals’ in a couple of years, but I’ll report on that when it happens!” * Ed Barr calls Bronxville, N.Y., home. He and wife Jen Pierce Barr ’89 have three children: Hadley, 13, Evan, 11, and Fiona, 6. Jen is the executive editor and content strategist at Travel & Leisure magazine and Ed is a senior vice president at Lehman Brothers Holdings, Inc. Ed keeps in touch with classmate Jon Earl (godfather to one of Ed and Jen’s kids), Cathy Andrew Rogers ’89 (godmother of another Barr child), as well as an assortment of people through Facebook. Ed hopes to see everyone at reunion and says “Jen’s 20th was a blast!” * Leah Basbanes and wife Grace Jeanes ’96 live in Dunstable, Mass. Leah continues to run her wetland consulting business that she founded more than 20 years ago. She’s also actively involved with the Dunstable Rural Land Trust, Nashua River Watershed, and the Lowell Humane Society. Leah started the Anytime Fitness Club, a family venture. Her nephew and his wife (both Bowdoin ’10, she shudders to say!) are running the business, and Leah is part of the background support system. Grace is the board president of the Lowell Humane Society (in her spare time—she works full time at Raytheon). Grace works her magic at the shelter where Leah’s family has been actively involved for over 30 years. The shelter, one of the oldest of its kind in this country, is a great place for animals in need, especially in our present economy. In between the business ventures, jobs, volunteering, and animal fostering, Leah and Grace manage to travel a bit, including an annual ski adventure with Steff Rocknak.
