Hey, everyone! I just got back from Colby Ski Weekend at Sugarloaf and, as always, was amazed at how the years just melt away when I’m in the presence of Colby mates. The weekend included visits with Ian Ogilvie, John Geismar, and John ’80 and Ronni-Jo Posner Carpenter. If there were others I missed, please forgive me and drop me a line to let me know. Mostly I hung with the “young’uns”—Kitty Weyl Dove ’80, Suzanne Connolly Levere ’80, Sarah Stiles Bright ’80, Lindy Williams ’79, Bill Muller ’79, and Bruce Forsley ’79—and it made me want to do some serious planning for next year. Who’s in? * Jeff Wheeler sent regrets for the ski weekend. He was heading to campus for the Jack Kelley tribute the following weekend. Chris Morrissey, Bob Fukumoto, and Sandy Buck also planned to attend. * Bob and Kim Attridge Sherrill live in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Boone, N.C., where Kim is associate director of the Learning Assistance Program at Appalachian State University and their son, Robbie, is a junior at UNC Chapel Hill. She had a mini reunion last summer with Sue Jacke Littlefield and Elizabeth Patten at Ronda Faloon’s house in Gloucester, Mass., where Ronda’s husband, Rob Chandler ’77, took them sailing several times. They all agreed it was special to get together and still feel like they were with their very dearest friends—and they hope to make it an annual tradition. * Speaking of North Carolina, Nick Levintow retired there in 2013 after 34 years with the U.S. Department of Labor. Nick and his wife, Kathy, had lived in the same neighborhood in Silver Spring, Md., since 1985 but wanted to be closer to the coast. They’re now in Leland, N.C., just outside Wilmington, which he described as “an interesting college town—not too big or too small, with a lot to offer.” They have one daughter planning to go to grad school in the fall, a son who started a new job in Manhattan, and another son attending college in Wilmington. Nick plans to join a consulting venture to focus on labor law and policy issues—and had to point out that while he visits New England often to see his sister, Alix Levintow Howell ’77, he does not miss the snow. It was 70 degrees and he was on the golf course in January! * Bonnitta Roy is also retired after 30 years in the landscape design-build industry. But she’s not idle—she established an educational center called Alderlore on her home/farm in northwestern Connecticut, where her title is resident meta-designer. I like the sound of that! * Marty Reader thanks Jim Cook and company for putting together the Facebook class page. Marty and his wife, Susan, love living in Minnesota and consider themselves “displaced New Yorkers.” Marty is working in his second technology startup and says his work is great fun. Marty, I think that’s a sign you are doing it right! Their daughter Alison graduated from Colby in 2012, son Jay is at Stanford, and daughter Livia is in eighth grade. * Doug and Marjorie Gonzalez Blackwell have been running half-marathons together and look so happy—and so in shape!—in the pictures they’ve posted. * Alicia Rodriguez lives on the Chesapeake Bay with her golden retriever, Finn. She runs two businesses: Sophia Associates, doing leadership development, and Bold Conversations, where she writes about personal and spiritual development and her travels in South America. Alicia has two books in the works and a creative 18-year-old son who is in college and produces his own music—and is the spitting image of Alicia at that age, in a male version. “Between executive coaching, writing, kayaking, and travel, it’s a full and happy life,” she says. * It’s wonderful to hear from so many of you. Please do keep the news coming!
