Bill Charron recalls his last Jan Plan was in Washington, D.C., working for a national polling firm run by Peter D. Hart ’64. This January Bill was best man at Chris Benecchi’s wedding at the Duke University chapel. Bill is a litigator and partner at Pryor Cashman LLP in New York City, where he co-chairs the firm’s art law practice (dealing mostly with stolen art and fake-art cases) and handles intellectual-property cases in the film and music industries. Bill and wife Deb have been married for 15 years and have two kids, daughter Sydney, 10, and son Wyatt, 8. * Chris Chin recently hung out with Dave Bartlett at the House of Blues. Chris and wife Linda got the VIP treatment while watching Ryan Montbleau and Trombone Shorty, artists Dave manages. “It was amazing to see Dave living out his dream to work in the music industry.” Chinny’s youngest son, Kyle, 14, just played his last season of Duxbury youth football. That means after nine years, Chris is now a retired coach. Chinny’s son Zac, 16, is doing well with track and cross country. * Susan Krolicki Newmeyer enjoyed a visit from Holly Coxe Brittingham. Sue lives in Sausalito, where she’s busy with her two children, Alice, 8, and Sam, 5, and volunteering at a local public charter school. Last summer Sue visited Rob McCarley and Kimberly Carr and their five daughters, as well as Paul and Sheri Petelle Marnoto and their three children. * Hilary Gehman and husband Matt Smith recently left collegiate rowing coaching positions at Cornell to relocate to Princeton, N.J. Matt is now an assistant for the Princeton University men’s rowing program. Hilary is enjoying spending more time with sons Luke, 3, and Carson, 1, while she contemplates what’s next for her in the working world. * Janine Deforge Olson reports that in 2014 the oldest of her five children turned 18 while her youngest started kindergarten. “I spent a lot of time running last year, mostly to forget the prior kid facts. I ran my first marathon (Boston) in the spring. The experience was amazing, but my run was awful and disappointing. It was so bad that I realized I couldn’t let it define my marathon experience. So, while I had only planned to do one marathon in my lifetime, I decided to run another to redeem myself. I retrained and ran the marathon I wanted to run, in Chicago in October.” While in Chicago, Janine lunched with Jay Collins, who has his own real estate law practice. Janine also keeps in touch with Sarah Burditt, Mike Saad, Kristen Schuler Scammon, and Kris Balser Moussette. She reports they are all doing well. * Michelle Parady Malach’s three kids keep her busy. Abby, 14, is a high school freshman; JJ, 12, is in seventh grade; and Chelsea, 10, is in fourth grade. Michelle teaches sixth-grade science at the Franciscan School, a Catholic K-8 school in Raleigh, N.C., where she has 101 students. Michelle is also the middle school cross country and track coach. She has never had a day she disliked in the five years she’s taught at TFS. Michelle recently had a wonderful reunion with Colby roommate Beth Tilton Lake. “We spent our week catching up, chatting, drinking tea, and reminiscing over some of our days at Colby (like the time her mom told us that we really shouldn’t room together because we’d fail out from talking way into the night instead of studying). She’s the kind of friend who, although we’ve spent years apart, when we’re together it’s like we have been all along.” * As always, many thanks for sharing your news—don’t be shy about dropping me an e-mail!
