We are sitting here on Leap Day writing the column with a forecast of 10-14 inches of snow coming our way. Vicki and her husband are scheduled to leave tomorrow for a month in Florida. Good timing Vick. Got great responses from some classmates we haven’t heard from in years. * Andrea Hicks Sato writes that she is working at Dannon in White Plains, N.Y., as head of sales training and communications after a 13-year stint at Heineken in sales and marketing. Her kids are 22 and 21, and the youngest is graduating from Clemson this May. Andrea reports she sees Amy Caponetto Galloway a few times a year. * David (Vito) Famulari responded after a 38-year silence. After graduating oh so many years ago, he ended up on a New Bedford fishing boat. After 13 years as a fishing boat captain on Georges Bank, he moved from Newport, R.I. to Miami to attend law school. He has been there ever since practicing admiralty and maritime law. Vito and wife Nancy have been married for 27 years and have a son, Leo, an Oberlin grad, who is turning 26. Vito does get up to New England a few times a year, so we better see him in Maine in June 2014. He wanted us to include his e-mail address (firstname.lastname@example.org) for anyone who might like to reconnect. * Callie Dusty Leef writes that her daughter Tina graduated from the University of California Irvine last June and recently got a job working with elementary and preschool children. Her youngest son, Matthew, is transferring to Oregon State in Corvallis in April to major in food science technology. She looks forward to retiring next January from defense contractor QinetiQ North America. * Karen Sawitz is a pediatrician in the clinic and occasionally the emergency room at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx. Her husband is retiring from his lace-manufacturing business and looks forward to pursing creative interests. Son David is in his final semester at Vassar, and daughter Abigail is a freshman at Hamilton. Karen rediscovered knitting and will attend a conference in Freeport, her first trip back to Maine in 15 years. * Jim Lazour and wife Laura live in Arlington, Va., with a houseful of cats. Jim has been practicing dentistry for 32 years. He finds it hard to believe our 40th is not too far off. (He’s not the only one!) He competes in “senior” golf tournaments in the D.C./Virginia/Maryland area, and sometimes talks with Jimmy Glover, who lives nearby in D.C. * Larry Kominz and wife Toshimi spent winter break in Japan visiting their children Leo and Maya, college students in Tokyo. Larry celebrated the big 60 by joining a Japanese family for a Korean BBQ banquet. He wore a red cap, symbolizing babyhood—after five cycles of 12 years we finish one lifetime and get to start a new one. He wishes classmates a wonderful Year of the Dragon. * Jay ’72 and Robin Sweeney Peabody returned to Colorado after three years in the Netherlands, where Jay shared his 35 years of industrial water treatment expertise with company employees from many countries. Robin and Jay declared themselves retired on New Year’s Day but can’t seem to sleep later than 7 a.m.! They had their first family Christmas in four years with their two kids and a daughter-in-law. Robin is looking forward to seeing many of her close Colby girlfriends at a reunion in Maine in June. Welcome back Robin! * John Ladky sent Vick and me a Valentine wish from Atlanta and promised he’d see us at the Spa.
