Debbie Neuman Dubowsky went to a book signing by Lincoln Peirce in Huntington, Long Island, where she works. She would love to reconnect if anyone is in the Long Island/N.Y.C. area. * Cici Bevin Gordon’s son, Tucker, graduated from Belmont Hill School in June and heads to a joint music and engineering program at Johns Hopkins’s Peabody Institute in the fall. Her youngest daughter, Tate, “graduated” from fifth grade and enters the big world of middle school. “Luckily I have seven more years to convince her that Colby is the only choice for her—I obviously failed with my first child!” Cici sees Sue James Geremia, Carrie Rymer Elliot, and me about once a month for dinner. Cici and Sue have regaled us with tips and tales over the last year of the grueling college search process. * Roy Hirshland has been traveling with the opening of his company’s new Silicon Valley office in Palo Alto. Roy is just beginning to look at colleges with his 17-year-old daughter (e-mail me if you need Cici and Sue’s numbers, Roy). He’s excited for the trip to check out Colby! * More news on the college front: Meg Wimmer Di Bari’s oldest of five, Grace, is going to Colby (’16). Meg stayed busy for the past 20 years with her five children, 8 to 18. Meg, you might want to get in touch with Steve Larrabee. Steve writes that his daughter, Morgan, will also be Colby Class of ’16. Steve says the town of Falmouth, Maine, is sending at least eight residents to Colby this fall. “This may very well be a record for attendance from one town, let alone one high school.” Steve took a warm-weather vacation in April with Keith ’87 and Linda Marotto Jones ’87. He also hosts get-togethers each year (He Man’s = mountain biking and hiking, Ski Man’s = skiing at Sugarloaf, and Tee Man’s = golfing wherever), and he sees many ’87 friends including Brian Kennedy, Chris Fay, Matt Mahon, and Jamie Ray, and Geoff James ’88. Steve acknowledged the great loss of Jim Windhorst ’87, who passed away last summer after a valiant battle with cancer. “He was a remarkable person.” * John Robinson says “thank you” to Colby for hosting half-price skiing at Sugarloaf last January. John had a great time and wondered why he was the only ’85er there. “Since a lot of us are turning 50 next year, why not celebrate slope-side? Just a thought.” * After 26 years in Seattle and Fountain Hills, Ariz., Kim Rogers is back in New England. He and his wife, Anna, moved to downtown Portsmouth last October and really enjoy the seacoast. He regularly speaks with Rachel Brandzel ’86, with whom he shares the parenting of two young adults at Michigan and Arizona. “They make sure I refer to them as young adults, not ‘kids.’” * Life in St. Louis is good for Rodney Krause. Anyone traveling through the gateway should look him up. He spends his free time following classmate Kevin Bruen on Facebook, “as he provides an hourly narrative of his daily activities.” Speaking of Kevin, he e-mails that he was selected to become a military judge. He was sent to the U.S. Army JAG School on the UVA campus and, after three weeks of training, was sworn in and became a member of the bench. * Debbie England Gray resumed her career after nine years as a full-time mom and part-time lawyer. She is VP and general counsel of a hot tech startup called Acquia in Burlington, Mass. The company already has more than 200 employees and is growing rapidly. Debbie is just starting the college search with her oldest daughter and is hopeful Colby makes her list. * Thanks for the news!
