Rob Young lives in Holliston, Mass., and works assisting the management of the Massachusetts Deferred Compensation Plan. He’s worked with this retirement plan for state and municipal employees for 15 years. Rob is in training for his fifth Boston Marathon, which conveniently has its starting line near his hometown! In addition to work and recreation, Rob has traveled multiple times during the past seven years to assist with rebuilding communities in Haiti and along the Gulf Coast. Rob’s three children, Jesse, 15, Maggie, 12, and Grace, 10, are a constant source of pride and good fun. * Suzanne MacLachlan Fletcher has launched a blog as a first step toward getting back into writing (her pre-children profession). Suzanne says, “It’s still a work in progress, but take a look if you’d like:” wetdogmuddyboots.blogspot.com. * Toby and Vickie Caron Bell live in Cumberland, Maine, where they “seem to have dropped their anchor for a while.” Toby and Vickie, along with kids Harrison, 11, and Carson, 9, took the trip of a lifetime last summer to the kids’ birth country, South Korea. The Bells traveled with 15 other families from around the United States and covered quite a bit of South Korea. They met wonderful people, relished great food, had terrific cultural experiences, and created many, many happy memories. The entire family wants to go back! While Toby and Vickie regularly see a number of Colby people in their area, they are really looking forward to seeing lots of classmates at the 25th. * Bert Languet lives with his wife, Sara, in the Waterville area. Bert recently enjoyed being chief volunteer in the first annual Maine Pond Hockey Classic on China Lake, which was organized by Patrick Guerette of the Alfond Youth Center in Waterville, with proceeds benefitting the youth center. The group is looking to expand this successful event next year. Bert, a certified financial planner, was recently selected as the Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce Business Professional of 2012 and was to be honored at a ceremony in April. All three Languet children play hockey: 1-year-old Jose, Gaby, 14, and Josh, 11. Sara and Bert spend a good deal of time running around Maine attending hockey games! * From Massachusetts Ellen Meigs writes of recent travels with husband Paul Carchedi. Ellen and Paul had always wanted to visit Yellowstone National Park and were able to do just that this past fall. They stayed in Big Sky, Mont., and traveled the hour south to visit Yellowstone. Ellen writes that it was quite a week of adventures. They enjoyed swerving around bison and antelope that had assembled in the middle of the road and getting caught in a snowstorm in the Grand Tetons. The couple ate French fries in Idaho and managed to drink beer on a saddle barstool without falling off in Jackson Hole, Wyo. It was a week of traveling through three states and managing an economy rental car in a boatload of snow! Ellen told her husband that the next vacation needed to be someplace warm. Ellen is happy to report that St. Martin is already booked! * Turnout at reunion is shaping up to be strong; looking forward to seeing old classmates, having new laughs about old events, and sharing all of our different stories from the post-Mayflower years. Safe travels.
