Cindy Flandreau Helfrich moved from northern to southern California a year ago, where her husband, Jim, and brother-in-law Gary McCarthy started a business together. Cindy and Jim enjoy the beaches, warm weather, and being closer to two of their children. Daughter Carly is a senior at USC, and Jack just graduated from Loyola Marymount. The youngest, Ted, is a sophomore at Georgetown, playing soccer. Cindy has started a small business called Button Up Wraps, which she sells on her website and in stores. She saw Lisa Hall Reed at a USC football game, where Lisa was visiting her daughter, Molly. * Ross Moldoff has had a great year. He made a presentation at the American Planning Association conference in April, and an article he wrote about the presentation was published in the newsletter Zoning Practice. In July Ross and his family spent two weeks in Israel. After the trip Ross climbed Mt. Washington and, while staying overnight at the Lake of the Clouds hut, he met three recent Colby grads working there. In August his family hosted Nick Tucker ’10 and Sam Rouleau ’10 for a night on the pair’s cross-country walking trip. * Craig Garson writes from Halifax, N.S., where he’s practiced law for the last 29 years at his firm Garson MacDonald. Unlike the first half of his career, when he practiced primarily criminal defense, Craig’s practice is now limited almost exclusively to mediation and working for a few international clients. Craig’s oldest, Ellen, 23, graduated with a business degree from St. Mary’s University in Halifax in June and is working for a year while she decides on phase two. Middle daughter, Rosie ’15, is a freshman at Colby, and the youngest, Marybeth, is a senior in high school and undecided which college to attend. Craig looks forward to spending more time skiing this winter in Snowmass, Colo., with his two new knees. * Greg Jalbert watched the wilderness of his youth packaged up and hauled away by the truckload when he gave up his lodge on the Allagash River. He continues the guiding tradition passed down by his father and grandfather as a guide on raft trips through the Grand Canyon and along Idaho’s Salmon River. As if he didn’t have enough going on as a marketing specialist, Greg just received an executive M.B.A. from the University of Denver. * Suzanne Viger Randall’s twin boys graduated from high school and both are in college. They’ve opted to stay local (USM and SMCC) and work part time while in college almost full time. Suzanne is still with UNUM, and her husband is in the Air Force Reserves and works at GrafTek. She has fleeting thoughts about retirement, but nothing serious. * Susan Raymond Geismar spent more than three fabulous weeks in Malawi, Africa, with Go!Malawi, an amazing organization dedicated to education, conservation, and HIV/AIDS prevention support in the Ntchisi district of central Malawi. It was difficult to return home, but she is already planning to go back. She’d be happy to share information on this great NGO. * I reconnected with one of my freshman roommates, Deborah Lieberman Moore, this summer. It was great hearing from her and catching up! She’s been the executive director of the Wadsworth Mansion at Long Hill in Middletown, Conn., for 12 years. Deborah loves the easy 35-minute commute and being able to bring her golden retriever to work. Her job description, besides being responsible for the mansion’s financial viability, is to make people happy. * News at my home is that we are officially empty-nesters. My brother has moved into his new house and my youngest, Meredith, is attending Colorado Mesa University. Wedding preparations for my oldest daughter, Kayleigh, are coming along, and I know June 30 will be here before we know it. * Keep in touch in 2012!
