By the time you read this there will be only a few months until our 25th reunion, or what I’m calling our “silver” reunion. (Silver as in anniversary, not as in a polite term for the color of my hair.) I hope you will be there, because I don’t want to be eating lobster all by myself. * Carolyn Lockwood can’t believe we have been gone from Mayflower Hill for 25 years. Her response to my e-mail: “Ugh! Ugh is all I can say!” I agree wholeheartedly. Other folks who plan to be there include Greg Gatlin, who works at Suffolk University in Boston and lives in Canton, Mass., with his wife, Erica, stepdaughters Emilee and Kaia, and baby daughter Elli. * Shaun Dakin created Dakin Associates, a digital marketing firm “working on changing the world.” Shaun writes that he keeps in touch with Camilla Oberg in Dubai via Facebook. * Congratulations to Robin Trend Baughan, who married Jonathan Mayhew in August. Their combined six children participated, and judging from the picture she sent, it was a beautiful event. * Jon Nash paid a pre-reunion visit to Colby’s new art museum and “found the entire campus to be practically unrecognizable.” Maybe one of our reunion activities should be figuring out our way around campus? * Andrew Ian Dodge continues to write as the U.S. editor for a new website called Trending Central. * Kristen Palmer McAnaney and her husband, Killian, bought a house in Merrimac, Mass., last year and are happy to be near both the coast and southern Maine. Kristen is in her 20th year teaching history at Westford Academy. * Jim Klimek is in Indiana, trying to get members of Colby’s Board of Trustees to pay attention to the cost of higher education and the implications of Colby’s lockstep tuition increases. So far, no luck, but maybe you can buttonhole them at reunion, Jim. * Chris Tompkins was elected to the board of trustees of the Montgomery School in Chester, Pa., and is the president of the Association of Delaware Valley Independent Schools. * In this column’s episode of “Anita Never Gets Invited,” Marc Rando and Andy Schmidt had breakfast in Madrid (yes, the one in Spain) while Marc was leading a Thayer student trip and Andy was there on business. I would have come, too, if you’d asked (and paid for the airfare). Marc is full of Colby news, having caught up with Jon Nash and his daughters, Matt Sotir, Dave Fernandez, Rob Hoopes, Eric Stram, and Bret Dixon this summer. This doesn’t mean you don’t have to come to reunion, Marc! * Bill and Anne Webster Stauffer had dinner with Kelly Doyle, who was on her way to Colby for reunion planning. The highlight of Bill’s summer was teaching his two daughters to water ski on Casco Bay. The Stauffers keep busy raising funds for the Sold Project, an NGO that keeps at-risk children in school in northern Thailand. * Mark Cosdon claims that he is going to reunion, but he might be too busy with his biannual course in Italy (that I follow jealously on Facebook). Mark is a happily tenured associate professor at Allegheny College, and in his spare time he is president of the American Theatre and Drama Society. * Jim Connolly is enjoying a career switch from running a nonprofit to being a realtor. Jim and his family had a good summer traveling to California and Puerto Rico. Jim saw Kim Murphy Brewer and Stacey Mitchell at Courtney Ingraffia Barton’s Mardi Gras party. Jim reports that Jan Gisholt and his wife, Hara, had a baby boy this summer. The baby has left Jan sleep-deprived but very happy. * Christina and Brendan Cahill love living in Pelham, N.Y., with their four kids. They send their congratulations to Jan and Hara and to Sandy Thayer and Greg Tinder on their marriage. * See you in June!
