Aloha from your class president! As Sally Hall Bell mentioned in the last column, we’re transitioning to a new class correspondent, and I ask that you all join me in thanking her for her many years of tireless service. I’m writing to you from Hawaii, where I live with my husband and three stepchildren. We relocated to Oahu from the East Coast about a year and a half ago and commute regularly back to the mainland. After this column, I’ll be handing the reins over to another brave volunteer—Bridget Zakielarz Duffy. Bridget currently resides in Mexico City while her husband, Gavin, is on assignment with the Department of Justice. When not travelling stateside as a doctor, she spends her time learning Spanish and being a mom. Bridget was in Massachusetts in June and met up with Anne Paruti Lohnes and Sarah Mockler. Both are doing great! * Patrick Fahey reports that all is good in life. Pat is a major in the Marines, just completed a master’s in defense and strategic studies at the Naval War College, and is stationed at Fort Pendleton in San Diego where he pilots attack helicopters. Pat and his wife, Kaitlyn, just welcomed their second child, Ziva Grace, who joins big brother Brixton. * Meg Cassella Hand is expecting her second child in October and dutifully volunteered her column-writing services, although I declined for her sake. * J.J. ’01 and Piper Elliott Abodeely live with their three children in Sonoma, where Piper organizes the G3 Women’s Conferences (g3sonoma.com). * Charlie and Abby Kussell Hopper, and their two-year-old daughter, Lila, were thrilled/scared out of their minds to welcome their new little girl July 25. They’re still holding down the fort in Charlestown, Mass., and try to see Colby buddies as much as they can. * Carl Tugberk and his wife, Jen, welcomed their first child, Hayden Sylvia Tugberk, to the world. Hayden weighed 9 pounds 7 ounces and is enjoying life at home with mom and “big brother” Barnaby, the dog. * Speaking of babies, Nicki Shoemaker McNair welcomed her second little girl, Lucy, in February and big sister Abby loves covering her with kisses. They live happily in Chicago where Nicki and her husband, J.R., are both attorneys. * Tammie Sebelius is continuing her European domination, spending the past couple of years in London working on behalf of EF, but we’re looking forward to welcoming her back stateside come fall. * Kathryn Kosuda welcomed her first little one, Rory John, a year ago July, and I had the honor of becoming his godmother this past spring. * On June 26 Jeff Brink completed the Bay of Fundy International Marathon, his third. The race was in Lubec, Maine, and stretched into Campobello Island, Canada. Three weeks later he completed the Lowell Wildcat Triathlon on a relay team with his father. The races were part of a trip his family took that included a visit with Chad Weiss and a Red Sox game courtesy of David Zlatin’s tickets. * Keep the good news coming, and welcome Bridget to the team!
