Rick Angeli, wife Tricia, and kids Emily, 13, Katelyn, 11, and Ricky, 9, live in South Kingstown, R.I. Rick is an account executive with Merck. Rick enjoyed a golf outing and beers with Mike Cantara ’89, Chuck Burke ’89, and Chris Hurley—all are doing great. Rick’s family spent Thanksgiving in Toronto, where Ricky participated in a hockey tournament and Rick reconnected with Quinnie Moyer ’89 at a game. Rick also had dinner with Matt Stetson in Maine. Matt is the same, always smiling. Rick appreciates Colby connections and how easily friendship resume. He’s undergone a transformation, bringing himself back to his 1984 fighting weight. Contact him for lifestyle advice (may include copious golf). * Mary Shepard DiSandro lives in Rumford, R.I., with husband Michael and daughters Sarah, a Trinity junior, and Elizabeth, a senior at Lincoln School. Mary is a college counselor at Lincoln and has sent many girls to Colby. My daughter Sophie (Winsor School in Boston) marked Elizabeth during a Lincoln-Winsow lacrosse game. Mary wants me to announce that Elizabeth scored the game-tying goal. (Sophie was not marking Elizabeth at the time, I want to be clear.) Mary plans to vist Rome when Sarah participates in the same Trinity in Rome semester that Mary enjoyed 24 years ago! * Emily Isaacs is an English professor at Montclair State. She lives in Montclair with husband Paul Modiano and their three sons. She was thrilled to receive the 2011-12 certificate for Writing Program Excellence from the Conference on College Composition and Communication. Emily enjoys time with neighbors Megan Blumenreich ’90 and Sarah Geiger ’89. Recently, teaching the American confessional poets, she drew on notes from Ira Sadoff’s brilliant lectures and admired his extensive, intelligent comments on her papers. * Tom Jester is an architect in D.C., specializing in historic preservation. His daughter, Hallie, will attend Colby and plans to run track and cross country. Son Nate is a sophomore and plays lacrosse and club and high school hockey. Tom caught up with Dave Scannell in D.C. recently. * Hansi Hals, husband Tom, and two children live in Port Angeles, Wash., out on the Olympic Peninsula. Hansi works in environmental planning, performing salmon-recovery and water-quality work for a Native American tribe. She saw Sarah Doherty when they traveled to a trail marathon that Sarah nearly won. * Dave Rand, Mike Paquin, and John Seidl reunited in John’s hometown, Boise. Dave traveled from Anchorage, Mike from Warwick. With three fourths of the Ponderosa Crew, they told rugby and Green Death stories, planned future reunions, and toasted fourth roommate Rob Travis. Some things never change, except, Dave reports, “the recovery period gets a lot longer.” * After nearly 10 years as the athletic director at Concord Academy, Carol Anne Beach now works on major gifts for the school. Cabby and wife Tara live three miles from the water in R.I. * Dean Schwartz and wife Ann live in Wellesley, Mass., with sons Nate, 6, and Owen, 3. They own a footwear design business (schwilliamz.com). The travel can be rough—on a two-week trip to China, Dean sat in factories 15-plus hours a day. “Who would have thought I’d end up in the footwear design business? Not me.” * Mel Brown Bride lives in Elena Stamoulis’s hometown, Barrington, R.I., while Elena lives near D.C. Mel is dying for a golf lesson from Barrington’s best golfer—Elena’s mom!

She lives in Attleboro, Mass., with her husband and son Nicholas, 10, a budding artist and hip-hopper. Meredith has been in special education administration for over a decade.
