Aaron and Diana MacKendrick Kielhack moved to Bismarck, N.D., where Aaron works for North Dakota’s information technology agency as a project manager. Diana stays busy with their children, Lillian, 8, Giselle, 5, and Winston, 3, and their activities. Aaron and Diana say, “We miss the East Coast (Stamford, Conn.), but things are booming out here and we’re looking forward to winter (skating, sledding, etc.).” * Ari Druker visited NYC for a few days, traveling from Tokyo, and he caught up with Jon Yormak, David Beatus, and Rob Hostler. He reports that everyone was well—enjoying parenthood and looking forward to our next class reunion. * Amanda White lives in Waltham, Mass., with her boyfriend of 10 years, Rob Reuter. Amanda taught in the language-based learning disabilities program at Reading Memorial High School starting in 2000. This year Amanda enrolled in a cohort of the National Institute For School Leadership. She occasionally hangs out with Jim Kelley, who lives in Ashby, Mass. * Jon Eddinger’s fall was busy after taking a job in Portland, Maine, at Mercy Hospital as a staff cardiologist. It’s going very well and he’s glad to be back in Maine. Jon has a son, Jackson, 3, who is a joy. * Phil and Kimberly Blatz Orbell live in Wyoming with their sons, 5 and 9. Kimberly and her husband are both middle school teachers. * Nancy Emerson Kress teaches math at Hanover (N.H.) High School, while her husband, Brian, does physics research and teaches at Dartmouth. She’s also busy raising three boys: Clay, 8, Glen, 6, and Lyle, 2. Watch this space as Nancy and her husband expected to add to their family in late January. * David and Cristen Coleman Mastroianni welcomed a baby boy in October. Luke joins brother Jake, 2 1/2. Cristen enjoyed being home on maternity leave and returned to her job at Fidelity in January. * Bree Jeppson and her husband, James Bassett, happily announce the birth of their baby boy, Lucas Bassett, last April. * Anne Griffin still lives in Sofia, Bulgaria, and loves every minute of it. She was busy preparing her company, Bulgarian Pottery and Gifts, for a Christmas village in Philadelphia and the New York International Gift Fair. She hopes for a lot of snow in Bansko Ski Resort, Bulgaria, this winter. * Doug Hutton, a science teacher at Glastonbury (CT) High, won the Milken Educator Award during a surprise school assembly Oct. 20. The award, which Teacher Magazine dubbed the “Oscars of teaching,” includes a $25,000 unrestricted gift and recognizes outstanding teachers for what they have achieved and the promise of what they will accomplish in the future. * Last but never least, Scott Parker e-mailed a well-crafted blurb that I’m including verbatim: “Murph alert … Mike Murphy, his wife Denise, and baby Rio visited the Big Apple in November (from their home in Alaska). After a busy day of trying to organize Occupy Wall Street (literally), Murph blew off some steam with 1%’ers John Bonello and Scott Parker at his first NFL game (where happily for Murph and Parker, the Patriots romped the Jets 37-16). Bonello was miffed at the Jets loss, but was able to wipe his tears on the bib of his new baby boy, John Jr. There was also a Colby reunion of sorts at the retirement party Dilan Siritunga ’92 helped host for Professor Meehan at the Harvard Club (where’s our Colby club?), where Parker, Bonello and Bill Miller (aka Vanilli) were joined by Ricky ’White Shoes’ (Rick Wallace) for a night of debauchery. Greg Burns was going to join, but bailed last minute because his skirt ripped.” * After reading Scott’s entry, it’s clear who should be writing our class notes—and perhaps also planning the upcoming 20th reunion? As always, thanks for writing in!
