Spring is here and reunion is almost here. Here’s the latest on fellow classmates. * Zach Shapiro has been rabbi at Temple Akiba in Culver City since 2006. Members of the congregation include Matthew Meyer ’91 and his wife, Erica, and Greg ’91 and Dakota Glenn Smith. Zach recently had a mini-reunion with Rebecca Graham Forde and Jeremy Samuels ’93 where, among other things, they sang through their memories of BMR! * Mark Boles enjoyed the end of summer with an impromptu epic gathering that included Ben Beatie, George Linge, Jason Eslick, and Steven Swartz. Ben is expecting his second child this spring. Steven had his first child last summer. Mark gets to see Rachel Klein-Ash fairly often as well as Katie Martin and Kelly Evans Arevian. Mark’s wife, Kate LaVigne ’95, is in a book club with several of them. Mark had a family ski trip last Christmas and bumped into Chris and Whitney Adams Ward and their three kids. Though they see each other all the time in Hingham, Mass., it was pretty magical that Chris and Mark were able to get a few runs in with their daughters, Sasha and Chase, respectively. By the way, the girls tore up the slopes. Mark recently took a job as senior vice president/director of account services for the ad agency UniWorld Group, which requires him to commute from Hingham to N.Y.C. weekly. * Jason Nixon has been watching and rewatching Romy and Michelle’s high school reunion in anticipation of his 20th Colby reunion this summer. He and partner John have rebranded their interior design firm as Madcap Cottage, and their Brooklyn home was featured in the April 2012 issue of British House & Garden magazine. Jason remains global lifestyle editor at Delta Sky magazine and, according to him, lives his life out of a bright pink suitcase. * Jim Condron had a show titled Realms and Origins: Paintings by Jim Condron and Alberto Rey at the Roberts Wesleyan Gallery (www.roberts.edu/davisongallery/). It ran March 5 to April 5 in Rochester, N.Y. No doubt it was a success. * I’m looking for the next volunteer to replace me as class correspondent. My term ends at reunion, and we need someone to take up the cause and keep fellow classmates updated. Let me know and I’ll be indebted to you forever, or at least the next five years. * It’s time for a road trip to Colby! Reunion is just around the corner and we’re hoping to see you there. We’ve been talking and planning for months now and can’t wait to see all of you back on campus May 31-June 3. We hope to stay in East Quad for the weekend. Friday we’ll have an informal get-together, Saturday is the reunion lobster bake, class gift presentation, and later our private class dinner. This year we hope to host a dessert panel with some ’92 classmates who have done some pretty interesting things with their lives since leaving the Hill Also, plan on participating in our 20-for-$20 raffle. In an effort to boost our participation numbers (our goal is 100 percent), committee members have generously donated items for a raffle, and selections will be made at our class dinner. Anyone who already made a gift to the Colby Fund will be entered in the raffle, so go online and make your gift now! Register and give at www.colby.edu/reunion. Can’t wait to see you.
