Nearly a year later, I’m still feeling warm fuzzies from our 25th reunion. As Brendan Cahill wrote, it is “remarkable, 25 years out, how natural and comfortable” reunion was. He added, “I feel humbled and happy to have met so many interesting men and women who influenced me and continue to affect me for the good.” Couldn’t have said it better myself. * Suzanne Milauskas has a new job as director of prospect development and systems at Spaulding Rehabilitation Network in Harvard Square. Suzanne’s daughter turned 16 in January and—like mother, like daughter—loves Broadway musicals. * Tripp and Heidi Lombard Johnson are tired of the Maine Turnpike tolls [get yourselves an E-ZPass!] spent visiting daughter Abby, proud member of the Class of 2018. Abby plays on the women’s hoops team. For Jan Plan she moved into Mary Low, where Heidi started her own Colby adventures. Heidi and Tripp aren’t the only ’89ers with kids in the Class of 2018—Chris Legault’s daughter also joined the ranks this fall. * Bill Auerswald is enjoying his new job as CFO at Greenwich Country Day School, and his family is enjoying skiing and being close to friends and family. * Kevin Powers took my e-mail request literally, telling me he spent Jan Plan 1986 playing basketball. The question, Kevin, is whether you were doing the same this January! * Bill and Anne Webster Stauffer had a great time at reunion [was it because you got to talk to me?]—so much so that Bill is going back to school, entering USM’s creative writing program this year. Can’t wait to read your great American novel, Bill. * Dan Cohen, who has been avoiding me by never writing, finally updated me on his life: married to Susan Bliss ’87, living in Rhode Island since 1996, two kids, one of whom is another member of the Class of 2018. [We really should get some sort of class discount!] Dan works for Swarovski, his family’s business, and spends three months a year in Europe. I can go on your next trip, Dan, if you need someone to carry your luggage. * Melissa Trend Staid lives in Napa Valley, where she and her husband have an aerial-imaging business, VineView, focusing on premium wine grapes. They have two kids, and they welcome anyone wanting to visit wine country. Don’t be surprised if I show up on your doorstep! * Our very own poet laureate (of Springfield, Mass.), Maria Luisa Arroyo, is coordinating a monthly literary arts spotlight at the Springfield Library while also studying for her M.F.A. at Pine Manor College. Her son, Shaheen, started Hartwick College in the fall—which is not possible, because he is still a chubby-cheeked toddler as far as I’m concerned. * Rebecca Zeilon is enjoying life in California, where she works to raise funds for the sciences at UC Santa Cruz. * John “Johnny P” Reynolds is writing a new animated comedy series for Netflix staring the voice of SNL’s Chris Parnell. The show will come out this spring. John’s son just turned 6 “and already looks like he’s ready to go to college. But I’m not ready to pay for it.” Maybe with our class discount? * Hilary Barnes Hoopes sent a lovely photo from her and Rob’s annual New Year’s get-together with Dave and Cindy Cohen Fernandez and Matt Sotir and his wife, Suzi. Stephanie and Marc Rando weren’t able to join them as Marc was recovering from hip replacement surgery. * When Shaun Dakin isn’t chasing after his son, Joseph, or his two new standard poodle puppies, he’s on social media, where he produced the number one Facebook post for 2014 across all progressive organizations for client Moms Clean Air Force. Congrats! * Keep writing, and let me know how you feel about the fact that we entered Colby 30 years ago in September!
