It was a packed house at the Copley Plaza for alumni and parents at Colby’s bicentennial party in Boston in February. It was great to catch up with so many classmates. It felt like a family reunion—if you grew up with 600 siblings! Thanks to all who organized a fantastic night! * Sean Padgett spent Super Bowl weekend in Park City, Utah, with Jeff Flinn, Mark Howard, Steve Langlois, and Dave Resnicoff. Sean and his wife, Ann-Meg White, also let us know that their oldest daughter, Catherine, will be joining the Colby Class of 2017. * Looks like Catherine will join Carolyn (Boynton) ’84 and Kevin Bruen’s oldest son, Conor, who will also be part of the Class of 2017. Conor plans to meet up with Sandra (Winship) ’84 and Wayne Eddy’s son Jesse ’16 on the football field next fall. Kevin writes, “Hopefully this Bruen/Eddy duo will have more success than their fathers did” (3-13 over FR/SO years of football at Colby). * Andrew “Drew” Worthington went on a college tour last February with their older daughter through Philly, Baltimore, D.C., and Virginia in conjunction with a soccer tourney trip for their freshman daughter in Williamsburg, Va. Drew was impressed with the schools and writes that the cafes at all of the schools are unbelievable. “Whatever happened to good old Dana where the big thing was having homemade donuts?” Andrew manages his youngest daughter’s ECNL U15 soccer team in his spare time. Professionally, he is a partner with Lips Rousseau Partners, a wealth management advisor based in Hartford. He is also involved as an overseer with Bushnell Memorial Hall (a performing arts center in Hartford) and is chair of the Catalyst Fund—part of the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving. * Mark Phillips is head varsity football coach at Alvirne High School in Hudson, N.H. His son Nick is a junior at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and will be captain of the football team this fall. His son Tony is a junior at Bentley College, where he is majoring in corporate finance and accounting and has been on the President’s List every semester. * Tom Colt continues his annual tradition of taking the Polar Bear Club plunge into the Monongahela River in Pittsburgh on New Year’s morning. In 2013: “air temp 25 degrees, water temp 36 degrees.” He and his wife, Megan, are going to Panama this spring and will stay on the San Blas Island with the Kuna Indians for four days—with no electricity! * John Robinson saw Dweezil playing his dad’s—Frank Zappa’s—music at the Casino in Hampton Beach last spring with Dan Allegretti. It was a “great show and good times.” * I heard some sad news about Suzy Seymour Gaeddert. Suzy has been battling brain cancer for the past few years and shares her experiences through her blog, updateonsuzy.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/something.html. I’m sure she would genuinely appreciate any thoughts, prayers, and support that any of us can offer. Those who know her mention her cheerfulness, faith, courage, and spirit. Suzy lives in England; her address can be found on her blog along with a message that she would love any notes and pictures anyone would care to send.
