Oliver Griswald is gearing up for Election 2012, where he’ll be writing ads and advising on social media strategy for a number of candidates. Oliver is enjoying life in D.C. with wife Ellen and daughter Amelia, who turned one in January. He sees Braxton Williams and wife Shannon regularly. * Josh Young and wife Jacqueline were expecting their first child March 8. Y Amanda (Carucci ’00) and Tim Boggs expect their third daughter this summer. They live in Hoboken, N.J., with Sophie, 4, and Sadie, 2. * Alex Wall reports that his wife, Marie, will receive a second kidney transplant this spring from her brother, who is probably a match. Her first transplant, from her mother, lasted 17 years. They hope that by the time the next one is necessary, stem cell organ growth will be tested and able to grow the next one from her own cells. * Sarah Hewins accepted a job at Endicott College as a faculty member in the interior design department. * Ellis and Jen Munson Bailey welcomed a son, Ethan Theodore, Dec. 17. He made his debut two weeks before his due date, so they were able to be home for Christmas and celebrate their new family for the holidays. * Becca Plummer and Jake Berg had a baby boy, Adam, in September. They are enjoying the newest addition, as is big brother Noah, 5. * Mike and Melissa Knight DuBois recently welcomed “Peanut,” a miniature Juliana piglet, to their family. Last June they bought 30 acres of land in Unity, Maine, just one exit past Colby and right across the street from the MOFGA fairgrounds. There is no living structure yet, but they had enormous amounts of fun camping there on Sandy Stream nearly every weekend last summer. * Adam ’98 and Christie Browning Rana and their two sons, William and Harrison, are finally settling down in the Portland, Maine, area this summer after Adam’s 10-year journey in NYC and Boston to be an orthopedic surgeon. Adam will work at Maine Medical Center in Portland beginning in September and hopes to live in the Cape Elizabeth or Falmouth areas. Their oldest son will start kindergarten in the fall, and they’re very excited to start the next chapter of their lives. If you’re in or near the area, please reach out. They don’t know many people there, but know a large Colby community exists and would love to reconnect (firstname.lastname@example.org). * Jason Flesh and wife Amie had a little girl named Clementine Mark Oct. 30. * Kim Nagy will marry Mark Monnin this June in Kennebunk, Maine. * On Feb. 10, Alex and Becky Thornton Leach welcomed their son, Cameron Haines, into the world with great joy. * Keep the news coming!
