They plan to get married in Boston next August. * Megan Watson delivered (while her husband, Jason, supported) their son, Finnian James Schissel, Oct. 25 at 11:36 p.m. He was seven pounds, seven ounces, 20 inches long, and cute as can be! * After leaving Colby Christina Lemieux spent three years in San Francisco, living and working in the midst, and aftermath, of the dot-com bubble. She then spent three years in NYC before moving to London, where she has lived and worked for the last six years. She’s married to a Brit and has a beautiful 10-month-old daughter, Anya, who is the light of her life. Christina’s career focus is advertising, and she currently works as a strategy director at a digital/brand behavior agency. She is also writing a book about the art of lobster fishing in Down East Maine. The book, published by History Press, is due out this spring. * Kim Nagy is engaged to Mark Monnin from Wells, Maine. * Ryan Aldrich and his wife had their first child, a baby girl named Avery.

They live in Montclair, N.J. * Jo Reardon Prince, her husband, and their daughter moved to southern Switzerland, where Jo teaches fourth grade at TASIS, an American School. They love exploring the area and look forward to skiing in the Alps this winter. * Melissa Thouin Federman headed to NYC last fall to celebrate Payal Luthra’s wedding. Laura D’Afflitti Weierman was also in attendance. * Brad Sicchitano happily reports that there are finally other Colby grads working at Fay School in Southborough, Mass., where Brad is the director of primary and lower school admission. Elizabeth Lyons ’09 and Devan FitzPatrick ’09 joined the school this fall and brought in the love of Maine and Mayflower Hill. Brad is a proud Fay parent, as his three children are now there. Brad says working at Fay has been a wonderful experience meeting families with his Colby banner in the background. It has led to many great conversations and meeting other Colby (as well as Bates and Bowdoin) graduates and sharing stories of living in Maine. He hopes they’ll continue to attract other Colby alumni to the school as faculty, staff, and future parents. * Eric and Amy Erdmann Sholk welcomed another little boy! Andrew Sholk was born Nov. 16, and his two big brothers are thrilled to have him in the family (for now)! * Kristopher Murphy completed his two-seat homebuilt aircraft and enjoyed flying it to the annual EAA convention in Oshkosh. The project took nine years of intermittent work, but now he flies with local friends and his two daughters. * Keep the news coming!
