We’re hearing from a variety of classmates, some who write occasionally and some who’ve never written before! You certainly make our job easier and broaden our news. Thanks for taking the time. * Sandra Bolstridge Morin has never written but always reads the class column. Sandy transferred out after her sophomore year, but will always fondly remember her Colby experience and the people she met. Sandy graduated from Husson College with a B.S. in accounting and has a small accounting and financial services firm in Bradley, Maine. She and Jeffrey Morin married in September 1978 and have two married sons, Michael, 30, and Christopher, 28. Michael is a resident park ranger in Pine, Colo. Christopher is a finish carpenter at Hinckley Yachts in Trenton, Maine. Sandy and Jeff own Harleys and enjoy riding, and for the past several summers they have spent two to three weeks traveling across the United States on motorcycle. They thoroughly enjoy seeing this great country and meeting people from all over. Sandy hopes that her first submission inspires others who have never written to send in news! * Congratulations to Joanne Anthonakes and Mark Cushing on their marriage last summer in Maine. They live between Boston and Duxbury, Mass. Their combined family numbers six kids, and Joanne admits they’re very busy. Joanne’s kids: TJ is a junior at Bucknell and Sara graduated from Colby in 2010. Jo works part time as an editor assisting high school students with their college essays. Like many of us she was sad to hear about Professor Bassett’s death—he was her favorite. * After many years in financial services working with companies such as Prudential, New England Financial, and MetLife, John Breedlove opened his own firm in Newton, Mass., called Moody Street Financial. It has 10 full-time associates and 20 affiliated brokers. John finds this extremely exciting and fun, although he admits that risking the opening of a firm like this at this stage of life seems a little crazy. * Last spring Theanna Pateropoulos graduated from California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) in San Francisco. She earned her master’s in counseling psychology with an emphasis in somatic methods of psychotherapy. She’ll remain in San Francisco another four years in the CIIS doctoral program in clinical psychology. In spring 2012 her daughter, Sarah, will graduate with a master’s in human development from University of Maine, Orono, where Sarah received a graduate assistantship. Theanna tries to make two visits home each year to Maine to see family and friends, including Mary Rolerson Hebert and Gayle Amato Lusa ’79. * Dave Kayatta works in southern California and is trying to finish educating the five kids for whom he and Renee live. Their oldest son, Taylor, is in law school; Michael is a first-year resident in med school; Ali is studying for a master’s in education; and Kristy is a first-year UCLA Bruin and on D1 rowing team. Last but not least, Hailey just started high school and is a top-ranked tennis player. Wow! * Things have been on the move in Jeff Wheeler’s family. His daughter transferred from Loyola to UMass Amherst, his son graduated from Lynchburg College, and another son finishes up at UVM this spring. Jeff said that 2011 was a great year for our class giving, as our class rose to the occasion. We hit and exceeded every goal we set! And he cannot say thank you enough to our classmate who extended the great challenge for last year. Great job all! * Have a good winter.
