Greetings, Colby folk! If your summer involved some vacation time, you were in good company—Katy Donovan O’Neil, Christopher Iannini, Ginny Fowles Ward, and Karyn Patry all caught some time away from work, if their out-of-office emails are any indication. * Crawford Strunk and family traveled to Maine for a vacation and were lucky to see Maylene Cummings Mitchell ’96. Crawford and wife Shelly and their three kids, Asa, Everett, and Emma, hail from Toledo, Ohio. Crawford still works at Toledo Children’s Hospital as the director of the sickle cell disease and hemoglobinopathy clinic. The Strunks recently added a new member to the family, a sweet Havanese puppy named Colby. * Anna Marie Wrin Yombo works in HR at the Latin American Montessori Bilingual Public Charter School in D.C., where her son, Leo, is in third grade; daughter Rachelle graduated last year. Anna Marie’s husband, Ernest, also works at the school as an assistant principal. Anna Marie says, “I haven’t been back to Maine since graduating from Colby, but I keep promising my family a road trip so we’ll make it there someday—can’t wait!” * Mike Murphy imagines our 20th reunion was a treat in many ways. He is “glad to know ‘the friends I made on Mayflower Hill remain loyal’ goes a long way.” Murph spends half the year in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and winters in Taos, N.M. His family includes a 2-year-old boy, a wife of nine years, and two dogs; he writes that he feels young and thankful. Murph is advocating for a 21st Colby reunion (B.O.O.T.) at his place in McCarthy, Alaska, during the last week of July 2014. * Meredith Bradt lives in Maastricht, the Netherlands, and works as head of marketing and communications at the Maastricht University School of Business and Economics. Meredith says, “It is great to see how internationalization has grown at Colby! I would (probably) never have ended up in Europe for the last 20 years if I hadn’t been able to go to Germany for my junior year abroad.” Meredith enjoys catching up with former dean Parker Beverage and some of Colby’s current admissions staff (Steve Thomas and Hung Bui ’94) at the OACAC conference each summer. * Suzie Girard and husband Dave welcomed Zachary Jacob Klein, who weighed in at 9 pounds, 6 ounces, on May 16. Suzie writes, “He is, I believe, the cutest baby ever. 😉 And he is keeping me and Dave on our toes.” * Tobin Slavin also welcomed a baby in May. Daughter Divya Ellis makes child number five in Tobin and wife Martina’s blended family. Martina and Tobin recently launched a startup called MustTryIt.com, a platform to promote local businesses that are a “must-try.” * “I currently have the pleasure of having my writing on nearly every street corner of New York City,” writes Mark Radcliffe, who is the author of the ad campaign for Citi Bike, NYC’s bike-share program sponsored by Citibank. Mark recently met up with Chris Bither and George Moore ’91 in the city. * Lael Hinman Stanczack, who lives in Singapore, spent 10 weeks in the U.S. this summer. She supervised construction on her new apartment and attended a wedding. Lael loved seeing everyone at our 20th reunion, especially Sarah Burditt McDougall, Stephanie Doyon Gross, Dave O’Shea, and the After 8 guys. She is already looking forward to our 25th reunion. * Write in and share your news. Hope to see you in the next column!
