Mark Richardson reports that everyone attending the 35th reunion had a great time. “Thanks to all the folks who attended. And for those not able to make it, you missed a wonderful event. From the gathering at the Pub, to dessert at the Chez, Friday started a fun weekend. Saturday began with Jamie Cowie receiving a Colby Brick Award and Kent Wommack receiving Colby’s Distinguished Alumnus Award, followed by the class’s presentation of its class gift to the College—thanks Janet Rosenfield for all the work that you do. After the lunch lobster bake, a number of Colby alums presented a wide range of talks, including Kent Wommack’s presentation on his work with The Nature Conservancy. Dinner, with a performance by After Eight (Colby Eight alums) and a great talk by Gerry Boyle ’78, started the evening, followed by dancing and music performed by the world’s best band, Pearl 9 (including our own Sandy Pardee, R. P. Higgins, Leslie Warren Van Berkum, and ‘Peggo’ Horstmann-Hodes).” The reunion party is now on temporary hold until the first weekend of June 2017. * Jeff Olmstead concurs that reunion was a great time and agreed that Pearl’s performance was a highlight. He talked about old times and new events with former roommate and Phi Delt member Charlie Frankel. Jeff hopes he and Charlie can persuade other PDT members to attend our 40th in 2017. * Peggo Horstmann-Hodes is currently conducting Songweavers, a 130-plus women chorus, teaching Vibrant Voice workshops, and singing happily. Visit her website: peggohodes.com. Peggo lives in Concord, N.H., with her husband, Paul, a former congressman. Their children are “starving artists:” Max, a musician in N.Y.C., and Ariana, an actress in L.A. * Nancy McGarrah Wood apologized for leaving us wondering what she’s been up to. She’s an investment law paralegal with the MassMutual Financial Group, where she’s worked for 34 years. Recently she visited her daughter Sheila at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, where Sheila is studying on a year-abroad program through UMass. Nancy visited Galway, Killarney, and Waterford, seeing castles, museums, and beautiful countryside. * Janet Josselyn’s new novel, Thin Rich Bitches, is now available as an e-book on Amazon. The book, “An uproarious romp through the minefield of female one-upmanship,” is now available on three continents. * Karen Sunderhauf sent us her very first update! She’s excited to be planning the first Kellogg-Sunderhauf family reunion, which will be at Pemaquid Beach in Bristol, Maine. * Jennifer Holan is working on an outdoor Shakespeare production, “Agincourt in Vermont.” That interest didn’t leave her, “at least as a side pursuit.” She lives across the river from Chris Beale Burchstead ’75. * To me the preceding is pretty amazing. Had every one of us been able to attend our reunion, we’d have met people we knew 35 years ago and found them to be the same people, yet filled with 35 years of growth. The core passions we had then have propagated through our lives, in one way or another. That’s wonderful!
