She took a business trip to Prague this summer and later led a group of 13 Girl Scouts backpacking in the Grand Canyon. “Weather is warm here—I miss the lilacs in New England.” * Cecily von Ziegesar is very excited about her hilarious new novel, Gossip Girl Psycho Killer, to be published in October. Also out by Cecily this fall is Class, the paperback edition of her Colbyesque hardcover novel Cum Laude. * Steve and Kristen Corey DeCastro had a baby, Tyler Joseph, in September 2010. He joins Annie, 10, and Clara, 6. * Kimberly Kennedy has lived in Sarasota, Fla., since 1992. She got her master’s in physical therapy in1998 and has practiced physical therapy for 13 years. Her thesis dissertation, Runner’s Perils, was published in a medical journal and in PT Advance Magazine in 1998. She stays in contact with Jill Vollweiler ’90 and planned a long girls’ weekend at Jill’s family winery, Sharpe Hill, in Pomfret, Conn., in August. Kim still runs, does yoga, and keeps busy with life in general. * Michael Spurgeon sent news about his former roommate, Eric Sohn, who launched a new hedge fund called North River Emerging Equities Fund, focusing on small-cap stocks in emerging and frontier markets. Prior to this Eric was part of a group that owned the first taco company in Russia. He also worked at the Russian desk in the DOE, where he was involved in nuclear nonproliferation. Later, his work in Africa was a significant factor in adopting a boy from Ethiopia. Seems like Eric’s journey post Colby has been interesting! * Eliza McClatchey Evans works for her family’s business, Southern Aluminum Finishing Co. Her husband is a stay-at-home dad with Gabe, 8, who is on the autism spectrum. Gabe is mildly affected and is in third grade. He’s currently fascinated by geography and can tell you every capital of every country. Eliza and her husband recently vacationed in the Netherlands and Belgium. They’re fortunate to have so much family around Atlanta and lucky enough to take vacation without Gabe. The three of them plan to come to our 20th reunion. Eliza stays in close touch with Nicole St. John and Jessica Maclachlan Hall, who lives in Hawaii. * Peter Read Smith, his wife, Elizabeth Stites, and son Zoeth, 9 months, divide their time between NYC, where Peter is an international civil servant with the United Nations, and Westport, Mass., where they have a farmhouse and a garden. * Chris and Whitney Adams Ward still live in Hingham, Mass. Their kids are growing up fast: Lily, 11, Sam, 9, and Sasha, 5, keep mom and dad busy with school, friends, and sports. The Ward’s got together with Scott ’91 and Margaret Igoe Osborne, Chip ’91 and Hallie Hastert Smith ’93, and Paula and Ben Marglin ’93 over Memorial Day. It was a great Colby mini-reunion. * What a great lead-in to my pitch on our upcoming 20th reunion, which is less than a year away. Save the date: May 31-June 3, 2012.
