My dear classmates, it’s been a slow news quarter, which gives me the chance to do two things. First, I must remember Andrew Ian Dodge, who died in August. Marty was many things—a rocker, a politician, a policy wonk, and a prolific writer and sender of newsy e-mails for the column. I should have known something was amiss when I didn’t hear from him before reunion. Should you want to read more about all the life he packed into his too-short years, check out the links posted on our class’s reunion Facebook page. Second, I want to thank each of you for the trust you place in me as your class correspondent. I know you think I’m crazy for signing on for another five years, but I love hearing from every single one of you. I feel connected to Colby in a way that I would not have thought possible more than 25 years later. Thank you for sharing your lives with me—the good, the bad, and everything in between. * Congratulations to my freshman roomie, Carolyn Lockwood, who was named director of Main Street Bath. * Marc Rando had a busy summer. He came to reunion, took his annual trip to Spain with Thayer kids, and got his left hip replaced after he returned. He had visits during his convalescence from Matt Sotir, Dave Fernandez, Bret Dixon (who came all the way from Texas), and Andy Schmidt, who put in an appearance via FaceTime. * Bob and Sue Banta Gallagher moved from the suburbs to a house in the Buckhead section of Atlanta. They’re renovating the house and have lived with construction crews all summer. * After spending two weeks in Maine for reunion, Jennifer Joseph headed home to Pittsburgh, got a new job with her company, Fiserv, and bought a condo. In September she was back in Maine, kayaking in the Bay of Fundy. * I hope you will mark your calendars for our 30th (ack) in June 2019. I have been trying to figure out how to explain how fabulous reunion was, but it is not something you can put into words. It was like being surrounded by happiness for a whole weekend. Now send me news for the next column, and take care.
