Hello from snowy Colorado Springs. * Joe Meyer began his year traveling to New York from Tokyo. He had a great dinner with Moses Silverman ’69, a trustee, and Michelle Riffelmacher ’03. * Grandparents Cari and Carl Lovejoy have been dubbed “Carlos and CeCe” by granddaughter Lila. Her parents, Ben and Avery, reside in Southern California, as does Carl’s middle son, Matt, who lives in LA, where he works for a private wealth group. Nick, the youngest, graduated in June from Dartmouth (why Carl wasn’t at reunion) and works for GE Capital in Connecticut. * Kyle Harrow made the trip to Toronto in late August for her son Sam’s freshman year at the University of Toronto. Sam was born in Toronto and has dual citizenship. Next to launch from the nest will be her daughter in four years. * With three boys in college and one finishing high school, George Powers has started to contemplate what comes after working and a quieter house—not too many coders older than 60. Road trip! * Susan Raymond Geismar celebrated her daughter’s July wedding with Colby friends Mike ’78 and Kelley Keefe Slavin ’80, Nancy and Bob Bower ’80, and Larry Hill ’78. Now she is in planning mode for daughter number two’s wedding this summer. * Jane Gair Prairie marked 15 years as a social worker at Mercy Hospital’s New England Eating Disorders Program last year. Her son is a high school senior, involved in music and drama and interested in pursuing engineering in college. As marching-band parents who also want to be better musicians, Keith and Jane took a Berklee/Coursera course to learn about harmony, intervals, chords, form, and the blues. Jane became an amateur videographer to create videos for fun and to document family events. She got in touch with Geoffrey Parker for some of his professional knowledge. * Sally Morton spent a few days over the holidays with Roy and Deborah Lieberman Moore in Connecticut. After a relaxing visit, Sally is working with a friend who has a third-party marketing firm in southern New Hampshire. They represent several small-investment managers. This is great for Sally as she can call on her long-term consultant contacts and have a flexible schedule working from home in Cohasset. She’s also teaching skiing again after many years away. * My e-mail asked you to talk about your last Jan Plan, which several classmates did. Catherine Courtenaye spent hers making woodcuts to illustrate the poems of Robert Frost. Flash forward 36 years: she planned to give a TEDx talk in February (hosted by the University of Montana) about the use of language in her paintings. Catherine was an English major, but she took as many studio art classes as possible and is still working with words and paint. * Barbara Decerchio Lee left Colby early for family reasons but is back in school to complete her degree at SNHU. Barbara remembers her Jan Plan with Mark Benbow. It was an in-depth reading of Richard III. * Nick Mencher spent his senior year Jan Plan reading The Critique of Pure Reason by Immanuel Kant with Professor Francis Parker. He lived off campus with Jane Gair Prairie and Jane Neilson and no car, catching rides at “The Four Corners” in the snow. Nick went looking for his copy of the book only to remember he loaned it to his son Peter, who majored in philosophy like dear old dad. * In January I had a great visit at Denver International Airport with Becky Rogers Bushong. Becky was flying to Arizona to visit her son Drew and created a long layover so we could catch up. It was a good visit and worth the drive. Last year’s reunion was a first for Becky and a chance to see old friends. She asked if I would be willing to drive up should she fly through DIA, and I said sure. Any chance to see my Colby friends! So if you are flying west or east, give me a holler. Hope to hear more from you in 2015.
