Hello Class of 2003! Just when I think I’ve heard from everyone, I get a few more first-time updates! * Amy Greenberg Ward teaches middle school English in Ann Arbor. Most evenings she and husband Arthur chase after their adorable son, Jonah, 2. * Emily Goss is director of planning and development at a company she cofounded in 2007 in Topsfield, Mass.—full-service event and catering at a beautiful 1901 fieldstone mansion. The historic venue is popular for weddings, especially with the tented pavilion and butterfly garden. They’ve already married a few Colby couples! Emily indulged her traveling roots by buying a 1983 RV and traveling around the country. * Eric Eichler is finishing his M.S.W. at Smith, and he’s working on an inpatient PTSD unit at the VA hospital, where he conducts therapy sessions, leads mindfulness groups, and teaches. * Dennis Kuhnel is the new director for the National Forest Service’s Hudson-Meng Bison Kill Education and Research Center in Chadron, Neb. * Jay Combs moved to Austin to attend the McCombs School of Business, University of Texas. With some McCombs classmates he cofounded a company called reQwip, a mobile application for buying, selling, renting, and donating sporting goods over your phone. The app is planned for release this summer. Contact Jay at firstname.lastname@example.org for info. * Nat Chamberlin went back to 2000 (minus the Busch Light and Napster) when he visited D.C. and saw Ben Cooper, Rich Cook, and Carl Tugberk ’02. * Caroline Riss and her boyfriend spent 2011 in Uganda, where Caroline was field director for the nonprofit Kasiisi Project (www.kasiisiproject.org), which promotes environmental conservation through education. They returned to the U.S. in December, and Caroline now works at Montana Legal Services as an attorney in the domestic violence unit. * Alyson Lindquist married Timothy Osgood in August in Groton, Mass. * Gretchen Groggel married Brian Ralston in October. * Keagan Russo married Jessica McKinon in St. Michael’s, Md., in December. In attendance were Nat and Jess Wysor Chamberlin, Ben Cooper, Brooke McNally, Kevin Thurston ’98, Alice Henderson Strachan ’05, and Karinna Russo ’05. * Evan Woolley married Alexis Rubin (Bates ’03) in Staatsburg, N.Y., in 2011 and was excited to have such venerable Colby guests as Mairead Carney ’02, Helena Tubis ’02, Scott and Rachael Merrick-Maggs, Mac Cathles, Evan McGee, Pete Chapin, Danielle O’Steen, Michael Pincus ’02, Lucy Brandes Baker, Dan Morrison, and Joshua Martensen ’02. Amazing photos at http://greenweddingshoes.com/a-whimsical-fun-diy-wedding-alexis-evan. Evan’s sister did the flowers and wedding design, Jory Raphael ’02 did their website, a mutual friend did the video, and his mom made a wedding yurt. The newlyweds honeymooned in British Columbia and hiked the West Coast Trail. They ended their honeymoon at another wedding—Evan McGee’s—in the San Juan Islands. * Amanda McKown and Sean O’Grady were married last October on the Russian River in Sonoma, Calif., with lots of Colby grads in attendance. Amanda and Sean live in San Francisco; she’s a strategy consultant, he’s a chiropractor. * Lindsay Tarasuk Aroesty and her husband welcomed Jacoby “Jake” William Jan. 16, MLK Day. Lindsay, a die-hard Yankees fan, is still coping with the fact that his name came from the Red Sox centerfielder. They live in Pittsburgh and would love to catch up with anyone visiting. * Jonathan and Sarah Mason Eck added Mason Theodore to the family Sept. 4. Sarah reports he’s got big feet—perhaps he’ll be a Colby swimmer like his dad! * Sarah Barclay Hoffman and her husband announce the birth of Frederick Elliott. Born Dec. 15, he is healthy, happy, and the light of their lives. Sarah was elected board chair of the McClendon Center, a nonprofit in Washington, D.C., that serves adults with mental illness. * Hope everyone has a wonderful spring!
