Erin Duggan was planning an August wedding in Rockport, Maine, to Ben Kramer, whom she met while on a sailing trip. (Erin was a member of the Sailing Team while at Colby.) Cassin Donn Duncan is serving as a bridesmaid, and several other Colby alumni will be present. Erin still works at the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. Best wishes, Erin! * Rebecca Hoogs and Larry Benesh welcomed their first child, Archer, in December 2012. Rebecca also just published her first full-length collection of poetry, Self-Storage. Double congratulations to them! * Jason Klein was recently elected to the board of trustees of the village of Rye Brook, N.Y. Since he is also undertaking a major renovation of his house, and his wife is expecting in early July, life is very busy at the moment. * Mike Choate wrote, “I live just a couple of towns east of campus, in Albion, with my wife, Stephanie, and our two boys, Nathan, 5, and Nicholas, 8. I continue to work in pre-hospital medicine providing critical-care transport as a flight paramedic and quality improvement coordinator for LifeFlight of Maine. As you all know, my roots are deeply seated in Maine, and I don’t think there is a better way for me to help the visitors and residents. We continue to enjoy this great state hunting, fishing, camping, and hiking. We’re all going to through-hike the Bigelow range, and Nicholas and I are going to summit Mt Katahdin in June. I hope everyone enjoys their 20th high school reunions this summer. You should know that you are getting old!” Thanks for that, Mike! * Meghan Scheck and her husband, Josh Burker ’95, live and work in Connecticut, where they are teachers. She wrote, “We were sad to have Alice Tilson Koehler ‘95 and her awesome family move away this past year, but we saw them last summer and will meet up in Maine again this year. Our son, Willem, is nearly two and is running laps around us and our one-eyed dog, talking up a storm like the child of English majors. We’re planning trips to Maine this summer to see my parents, then a big trip out to Seattle, where we used to live.” * Jen Mason Drolet met up with Mandy Ball Caruso, Mary Rosenfeld, and Kerri Duffell over dinner in Boston in April. Mary recently saw Kara Patterson Waters, who ran the Boston marathon and thankfully finished before the terrible bombings. We are all relieved to hear that news. * Doug and Drea Barbalunga Wood welcomed their second child, a son named Finlay, in January 2013. Reading the class news helps Drea feel connected as she lives overseas, so keep the news coming! * Finally, Jerrod DeShaw wrote in memory of his good friend Todd McGovern. He has set up a fund to benefit Todd’s wife, Amanda, and their twin boys, Will and Andrew. “The memorial fund is separate from the Seas It foundation Todd and Amanda started together. Seas It will continue in its mission to help those fighting cancer, but funds raised through the Todd P. McGovern Memorial Fund will go directly to help support Amanda and the boys. Gov was an amazing human being, an amazing athlete, teammate, friend, son, husband, and father. His Colby friends and classmates want to honor his memory by helping Amanda and their boys in any way possible. The Todd P. McGovern Memorial Fund was set up to do just that, help support his family. Simple answer to why? Because he would do the same for us.” Contributions can be mailed to Jerrod DeShaw, 22 Appletree Point, Burlington, VT 05408.
