Happy summer, everyone! In June my husband, Laurence, and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary by running the Covered Bridges Half Marathon—13.1 miles across the beautiful terrain of Pomfret, Woodstock, and Quechee, Vt., country roads. There were live bands all along the course—and cold beer at the finish. * Jim Condron (www.jcondron.com) lives in Baltimore, Md., and teaches drawing, painting, and design at Towson University. This July the gallery at Yvette Torres Fine Art (www.yvettetorresfineart.com) in Rockland, Maine, hosted an exhibition of his paintings. “Much of the work in the exhibition was made while I was on a residency at the Heliker-LaHotan Foundation on Little Cranberry Island last summer. It was a wonderful experience, and I hope to go back for another residency in the future. Meanwhile, I’m beginning a new endeavor: private, customized art tours of museums, galleries, and art spaces in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and New York. The idea is in the very beginning stages, but I’m excited by the prospect.” * Zach Shapiro, rabbi of Temple Akiba in Culver City, Calif., spent a month in Israel this summer studying and leading a congregational trip. “But our exciting news is that my husband, Ron Galperin, was elected Los Angeles city controller. It was an extremely tough city-wide election, and the voters chose Ron in a decisive victory.” * Sura DuBow Lennon is a senior global marketing manager for Abbott Animal Health. Last spring she flew to Boston for work. “Nothing is better than turning a business trip into a mini-reunion where I get to see three of my favorite Colby alums!” I agree! We enjoyed a night of Thai food and many laughs with Jen Nehro Patriacca and Amy Selinger Elefante. * Jane DeStefano Becker wrote from Fairfield, Conn.: “I enjoy seeing Kelly Harris Kenny and Shelly MacConnell ’91 nearly every day at our elementary school drop-off! My husband, Greg, who works at Johnson & Johnson, received his M.B.A. from Fairfield University in mid-May. Our children, Natalie, 13, Matthew, 12, Danny, 6, and Emily, 5, were there to cheer on their dad. The graduation speaker was definitely not as entertaining as Bill Cosby, but then again, Colby sets a pretty high bar!” * Warren Claytor had a great winter, including several ski trips to Jackson Hole, Wyo., with friends and family. In January he met up with his eldest brother, Tom Claytor ’85, in Tahiti for a Sea Education Association alumni and friends sailing cruise aboard the SSV Robert C. Seamans. In May he hosted a party for his 25th reunion from the Haverford School. * David Leavy checked in from Washington, D.C.: “I continue to deal with sharks, dinosaurs, and now Honey Boo Boo at Discovery Communications. A few of us had a great time catching up in Florida over President’s Day weekend. My wife, Katie, and our kids, Gavin and Gardiner, were also in tow. Thorn Luth arrived with his wife, Laurie, and their two wonderful girls, Charlotte and Audrey. Thorn is enjoying a booming real estate career in the suburbs of Denver. Curt Beckwith, his wife, Susanna, and their three beautiful girls, Isabelle, Lila, and Posey, rounded out the gathering. Curt is an associate professor of medicine and the director of the Infectious Diseases Fellowship at Brown University. We’re all looking forward to our annual Cape Cod reunion in August—and adding a few more to the mix: Torin Taylor, a 20-year veteran of commercial real estate in Boston, his wife, Anika (Smith) ’94, and their children, Augusta, Ernest, and Nils; Josh Cummings, a leading equities analyst at Putnam Investments, his wife, Jennifer, and their daughters, Claire and Sloan; and Wylie Dufresne, the 2013 James Beard Foundation winner for best chef in New York City, his wife, Maile, and their children, Sawyer and Ellery. Aaron Davis remains missing behind enemy lines.” Hopefully he’ll surface before the fall issue of the magazine!
