My husband, Jon, and I welcomed our second daughter, Alden Jane Charette, June 1! Alden’s arrival was thrilling to us, but not nearly as much drama as Lisa Hart Olsen’s delivery. Lisa’s baby boy, Lucas William, made a dramatic entrance April 20 by being born in the elevator at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan! He was delivered by an orthopedic surgeon with help from a security guard. It was quite a scene, but luckily everything went smoothly. Lucas joins big sister Hannah, 2. * Bliss (Woolmington ’02) and Patrick Bernal set off for a five-month trip around the world with their two-year-old, Jude. After their adventure they’re relocating to Vermont. Check out their blog at www.aroundtheworldwithatwoyearold.com. * Seth and Hilary Spitz Arens welcomed twins Willow Reese and Quinn John June 25! * Payal Shah and David Fuente had quite a busy year. After two years in India, they relocated to Chapel Hill, N.C., where David started a Ph.D. in city and regional planning at UNC. They welcomed their first child, Zara Shah-Fuente, Feb. 4, and Payal finished her Ph.D. in international and comparative education from Indiana University in May. During their visits to the Northeast they’ve regularly seen Peter Girard and Emily Fischer ’02, David Riss, Cassic and John Mason, Jess Weisbein, and Pierre Vanden. They also see Asher Ghertner from London and Sara Lovitz from New Zealand when they visit the U.S. Payal and David look forward to a slightly less eventful year. * Joel and Drew Hall Williams and son Joel Andrew welcomed 10-pound baby James Morris May 10! All four enjoyed their first trip to Colby for reunion just a few weeks later. * Nathan Boland and his wife, Elizabeth, welcomed their second child, Eli, July 10. Nathan defended his Ph.D. in environmental chemistry in August and then moved from Baltimore to Tacoma, Wash., to take a position as a visiting assistant professor of chemistry at the University of Puget Sound. * Michelle Farrell accepted a teaching job at UPenn and moved from Washington, D.C., to Philadelphia. * Lindsay Rowland married John Heller, a fellow veterinarian, in April. Heather Olson was her maid of honor, and Marion Matthews Miller was also in attendance. * Robb Henzi married Pamela Lowenstein and, after a two-week honeymoon in Thailand, he returned to work at Ogilvy & Mather as a marketing strategist. * Piper (Elliott ’02) and JJ Abodeely welcomed their second, a girl, Keaton Maykel Abodeely, in June. In April they were on an East Coast swing when JJ ran the Boston Marathon and got to mile 16 before the pre-race beer drinking with the usual suspects (Chris Brunet, Jake Civiello, Jeff Guerette, Pierce Cole, Devin Beliveau, and Matt Reeber) slowed him down. The Abodelly’s also caught up with Brian Newman and Geoffrey Sudderth (who completed a rare, prolonged exodus from Atlanta) in NYC. * Elicia Carmichael received her M.B.A. from Cornell in May and joined Root Capital’s strategy and innovation team, where she’ll assess clean technology investments for agricultural enterprises throughout Latin American. Her home base will be San Jose, Costa Rica. * Whitney Dayton Brunet wrote that Chris earned his M.B.A. from Yale’s School of Management in May. They’ve returned to Boston, and Chris is back working at Brown Brothers Harriman. * Gavin Garner, assistant professor in the department of mechanical and aerospace engineering, was honored with the 2011 Mac Wade Award for outstanding service to the U.Va. School of Engineering and Applied Science. He also won the professor-of-the-year Award from the Rodman Scholars Program. * Stu Luth is producing White Alligator, a feature-length dark comedy about “acceptable” racism. The film is based on his wife, Viviana’s, experiences as a white-skinned Puerto Rican actor in New York in an industry that discriminates as a rule. Viviana has to pass as “white” to be eligible for acting work, despite having white skin. White Alligator works to eliminate discrimination, especially in the entertainment industry, and through that, worldwide. Visit whitealligatorthemovie.com.
