Doug Herbert received a birthday call from Peter Shribman, who was at Fenway Park (or a tavern very near) with a group of Phi Delts including Mark Garvin, Elliott Pratt, Scot Lehigh, Scott Butterfield, Andy Goode, Jeff Shribman ’78, Miguel Browne ’78, Doug Deangelis ’79, Jay Burke ’79, and Bob Walsh ’75. Doug reports that Peter Shribman became a grandfather recently. * Liz Nelb Gearan’s son, Bill, graduated from Northeastern with a degree in mechanical engineering. Celebrating with a pub crawl through Boston was reminiscent of Liz’s Colby days! * Warren Rosenthal has a new position as land protection and stewardship coordinator for the Lake George Land Conservancy in New York. Warren’s wife is communications coordinator for the Lake George Association, so the whole family is working to protect the water quality of the “queen of American lakes.” * Lisa Paskalides Grimmig looked forward to watching her son, Ben, graduate from Colby and hoped to run into a number of classmates with Class of 2012 kids. * Liz Yanagihara Horwitz has been subbing at Wellesley’s Child Study Center, where her sister-in-law Sue Horwitz Kerr Miller is now the director. Liz will play her flute at the Hatch Shell this summer with the Boston Civic Symphony. Liz’s daughter is back from living in Taiwan, and her son is managing a Panera Bread just down the road, so the Horwitz clan has everybody close to home. * Pete and Lynne Seeley Lee’s son, Spence, graduated from UVermont this spring and will work for Green Mountain Trails. On a sad note, Pete’s dad, Bob Lee ’51, former Colby trustee and class agent, died in March. Our condolences to the Lee family. * Barb Neal and Sarah Davis ’79 enjoy life in Ithaca, N.Y. They’re busy working, riding horses, and building their farm to be. Barb owns her own company, Green Legacy Tree Consultants, and Sarah works as a horticultural therapist at a senior living center. * Cate Talbot Ashton’s twin sons graduated this spring, Zeben from Allegheny and Nate from UNH. Both had Colby grads as professors! * Alan and Robin MacLeod Goodridge celebrated 25 years of marriage with a dream trip to Paris, Cannes, Rome, Florence, Sorrento, and the Amalfi Coast. It was Robin’s first trip back to Paris since her junior year abroad, and she reports that her French came right back. * A KDR gathering in Framingham last May included Tom Eyman, Jack McBride, Dave Perry, Jim Coull, Paul Rennert, Kevin Shea, John Longley, Chuck Jones ’79, Howie “Hoops” Ingraham ’79, Jim Shaw ’78, Bruce “Hendo” Henderson ’79, and Tim “the Millis Bazo” Smith ’79. * Rachel Lavengood went to an “evening of erotic reading” in Seattle this spring to hear Amy Butcher read from her soon-to-be-published mystery novel Paws for Consideration. Rachel said the other readings were okay, but that Amy actually wrote in paragraphs and used words longer than three syllables (go Colby!). Check out www.amybutcher.com/paws. * Ted Reed and Susan Pollis ’78 headed back to Maine in July after a terrific three-year professional and personal adventure living and working in southern England. Ted’s older daughter, Perrin, started at Colby, but the draw of the UK was too great and she transferred to University of Manchester. Younger daughter Hogan heads back to high school in Cumberland. Ted and Susan will miss sailing the Mediterranean, skiing the Alps, and venturing to places like Crete and southern India, but they’re looking forward to sailing the Maine coast, skiing in the Whites, and reconnecting with old friends. * Julia Greenwood Kreutz wrote from Atlanta, Ga., that she never imagined she’d be a Georgia peach and remain in the South for 32 years. She’s a physical therapist and rehab supervisor in metro Atlanta, cycles for Team Shepherd, and is the proud parent of a recent UGA grad and a current Savannah College of Art and Design student.
