Hello, 2003! Slow quarter—which must mean that everyone is saving their news to share in person at Reunion 2013! Don’t forget, June 6-9! And if you have not already, I encourage you to visit alumni.colby.edu/give to make a gift to Colby. We hope to reach 50 percent by reunion! * Carrie Morin and her husband, Travis Peaslee, welcomed their son, Kaden Ellis, Nov. 26 (a month early!). * Sharing a birthday with Kaden is the daughter of Will and Kristen Vaughn Olson, Everett Cady. They still live in Ithaca, N.Y., where Will is chef/owner of Bandwagon Brewpub. * Ray ’01 and Laura Thomason Mazza welcomed their first child, son Zachary Quinn, into the world Jan. 6. * Nat and Jessica Wysor Chamberlin welcomed their second daughter, Anna Fabry, Jan. 7. She joins big sister Molly, who is thrilled to have a baby at home! * Scott and Rachel Merrick Maggs had a baby boy Jan. 13—Lucas Merrick. Since Lucas was born, they’ve sought advice from other Colby alum parents, like Karli Jaffe. Scott and Rachel will attend a wedding in LA in June and Pam Sawyer will watch baby Lucas. * Laura Brown Kittredge graduated from NYU’s Wagner School of Public Service with an M.P.A. in nonprofit management last May. She continues to work at NYU, fundraising and building corporate partnerships for the school. In mid-January Laura and her husband, Chris, welcomed their first child—a baby girl, Avery Renee. *Michael Reilly is co-producer on feature film Greetings from Tim Buckley, which was a special presentation at TIFF and had its domestic premiere at the Tribeca Film Fest 2013. * Liz Jackson and her fiancé, David Clearwater, were in the U.S. for a month over Christmas, leaving summer in New Zealand for the snow and sub-zero temperatures of upstate New York. While here they caught up with Chelsea Hoffmann in California, Vivienne Ho in Connecticut, Christiana Salah in Massachusetts, and Cam Dufty in Idaho. * Rena Taylor had an exciting 2012: she got engaged, moved to Melbourne, Australia, and got married in New Hampshire last November! * Lindsay Tarasuk Aroesty and Kelly Patterson had a ski weekend at Okemo in Vermont and relived the wonderful old Colby days. Lindsay promised that both are going to try to make it up for reunion! * Lindsay still sees Patrick Koch and his wife, Kelly, and their two kids in Pittsburgh on a regular basis. They get a few child-free nights out on the town together every once in a while. Patrick has been working diligently to teach his daughter, McKenna, how to ski. She’s learning on the same mountain that Patrick grew up on, and she is having a blast! * Kate Ginty is in her second year of her emergency medicine residency and has already set her schedule so she’s free the weekend of reunion—well done, Ginty! She was recently engaged to her fiancé, Craig, and is looking forward to their fall 2013 wedding! * Kate Carroll graduated from law school and took a job with the U.S. Postal Service Law Department, where she practices employment and labor law. Kate still loves life in San Francisco, especially with all of the great local food and nearby hiking trails. * Katherine Jacobs sees Lauren Bliss frequently, and they’re keeping the Colby love alive in Rhode Island! * Hope everyone is looking forward to reliving the early 2000s up at Colby in June. Next stop: Mayflower Hill!
