Hamilton Brower just returned from a fabulous UNESCO World Heritage site visit to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, a beautiful 18th-century Spanish colonial town tucked into the mountains of central Mexico. Great for any art/archeology enthusiast or adventure-seeker. * Joey Marcoux is the proud parent of three daughters. The twins will be seniors in college this fall, one in nursing at Husson, the other in dance/elementary education at Smith. His youngest graduated from high school this spring and heads to the University of Maine. Joey is finishing his 26th year of teaching at Lawrence Junior High School in Fairfield, Maine, where he coaches eighth-grade girls basketball and varsity softball. * The child of one of Bill Nicholas’s childhood friends is heading to Colby from California—Erin Figel from Manhattan Beach. Bill has been in touch with Peter Voskamp, Aimee Good ’87, Todd Bishop ’87, Lou Geremia ’85, and Randy Wilmot ’84, despite being consumed by the extracurricular adventures of his two boys, Charlie, 8, and Will, 6. “I merely flap in their wake!” Bill will be on Cape Cod this summer. * Andrea Sarris reports from the ground that the bottom has truly fallen out in Greece! It’s back to basics—everyone has a garden and makes their own cheese from goats’ milk. She helped a farmer-friend shear his sheep and then washed and carded the wool with another friend who is a weaver. She is renovating her old stone house on a shoestring budget, and it will soon become headquarters for her “keep on trekking” business, a moving classroom in nature. Andrea will be back in the Boston/Maine area over the summer to see her parents and old friends. * Michael Dobbs moved to Nashville in February to become general manager of Catapult, a marketing agency. Wife Amy and daughter Julia will join him from N.H. when Julia finishes fourth grade. Michael is glad to report that, while Amy has been very ill, she seems to be getting better—they suspect she’s had Lyme disease for more than 10 years. * Andy Docherty is on a nine-month deployment as chief of staff at Joint Task Force Guantanamo (JTF-GTMO), where he works 90 to 100 hours per week. He looks forward to being home with family by the end of the year. * For the past 15 years, Ben Allen has worked as an international development consultant focused on the role of law and corruption. He’s lived in Eastern Europe, Africa, South East Asia, and the Middle East. As B. Morris Allen, he’s also been writing speculative fiction since fall 2010, and recently published his first novella, The Speed of Winter, available on Amazon. More info is at BMorrisAllen.com. * Leslie Greenslet Perry completed a certificate from the Johns Hopkins School of Education in administration and supervision with an emphasis in technology leadership. She is also busy organizing her youngest son’s Bar Mitzvah and preparing for her eldest son, Graham, to head off to University of Toronto’s School of Engineering. * In Houston Bill Yardley works as a group VP for Spectra Energy, a natural gas pipeline company. His kids are nearing Colby age—14 and 16—but he’s the one who went back to school for two months to complete Harvard’s Advanced Management Program, which he loved. * So much great news this time! Keep it coming, friends!
