We had a wonderful summer, including a week in New Hampshire with Kelly Hagan McCormack and family and a vacation to the Black Hills of South Dakota. When I was in Maine Labor Day weekend, I was thinking of the Colby first-years on their COOT trips and realized that we were on our COOT trips before these first-years were even born! That was a little much for me to handle, I’m afraid. * Stephanie Mann Gabelnick moved to Houston, Texas, with husband Aaron and 6-year-old twins Daliah and Micah. She enjoys life as a stay-at-home mom and is getting to know the area and local culture. * Joe Corrigan left private practice in March and now works as general counsel and VP of strategic relations with Dining Alliance, the nation’s largest group-purchasing organization for independent restaurants and small restaurant groups, headquartered in Boston. He and his wife, Molly, are expecting their first child in January. * Patty and Alec Rowe welcomed a son, Rodrigo, in May. They live in Fairfield, Conn., and Alec works in education administration in NYC. They enjoy seeing Colby friends Colleen and Josh Lippmann and their son, Samuel, as well as Judy and Jay Klein and children, Alexander and Elliot. * Kara Hooper has been busy visiting with Colby friends. She and her boys traveled to Denver this summer to visit JJ Ecklund McGawn and family. She also recently saw Jennifer Atwood Lesky and Tanya Semels Brylinsky, both of whom had just moved into new houses. * Kim Parker welcomed a baby boy, Elliott True Parker, in May. Congratulations, Kim! * Jess Miller Pachler has been an event planner for the last nine years. Last October she traveled to Durban, South Africa, for a U.S. government meeting. The meeting was canceled shortly after she arrived due to the government shutdown, so she spent the next week negotiating 500 hotel room cancellations. While there, she was able to travel to Hluhluwe, where she saw lots of rhinos. She and her husband, Mike, welcomed their fourth son, Louis, in March. He joins big brothers Sampson, 7, Henry, 6, and John Thomas, 2. They live in Annapolis, where they enjoy seeing Rob Gimpel and Brian Dowling. This summer they visited family on Cape Cod as well as Claire and Brent Ryan in Newport, R.I. She shared, “We still host Manaiung every Labor Day with a bunch of Colby friends including Rich Morrissey, Brent, John Baptiste, Bow Stratton, Matt Logan, and many more. All Colby friends are always welcome to join us for a weekend of camping, beer die, and great food on my dad’s farm (kid friendly, even with the die).” * This summer Jon Levin, his wife, Beth, and sons Nicholas and Liam went to Disney World, Hampton Beach, N.H., and York Beach, Maine. * Becca Durham had a wonderful summer camping with her daughter and working outside as a botanist in Montana. She was planning a September bike ride in the Ovando Gran Fondo to raise money for the Missoula Symphony.
