Hi, everyone! As I’m writing, I’m looking forward to the balmy weather that’s supposed to hit this weekend—they’re predicting high 20s. Might have to bring out the shorts! Last September I took my mom to New England for a brief vacation. We had a wonderful brunch at the Maine Diner with Diane Lockwood Wendorf. Di and her husband, Mark, have been back in Maine for more than five years. Di is pastor at the North Parish Congregational UCC in Sanford. Among the greatest joys of her ministry last year was celebrating the marriage of two men who’d been together for 14 years—since before the marriage equality vote made it legal in Maine. She was looking forward to celebrating the marriage of Don and Bill, who have been together for 37 years and are now in their 70s. Mark took over as interim minister of a tiny church in York Beach and has been doing a fantastic job there. Their son, Josh, builds and repairs bikes at a Trek concept bike shop in Portsmouth, N.H., where he’s the service manager; Josh also does their graphic design and stars in their online ad. * As part of their sailing adventures last summer, Paul Kueffner and his wife, Sue, met Marguerite (Nelson) ’75 and Jay Sarson. Discussions included wedding planning; Paul and Sue’s eldest daughter will be married in October to a fellow University of Vermont alum. Paul is happy to have 160 excited kids learning French this year. * David McKay Wilson continues to write for Colby magazine, among many other publications. He has a story in this issue about six Colby entrepreneurs. * Kevin Carley’s daughter, Karina ’08, was married in Yarmouth, Maine, last July, with 22 Colby alumni attended including Harry Nelson, Mike Boyson, and Lindsay Huntington Hancock. Kevin returned to Portland, Maine, last year after four years overseas working as a country director for the Peace Corps in eight different countries in Micronesia and the eastern Caribbean. He’s now an executive coach; his focus is working with baby boomers on financial issues and encore careers. Contact Kevin through his website, kevincarley.com. * David Christie is the commercial print salesperson for the Lewiston Sun Journal, and lives in Mexico, Maine, the town where he went to high school. He’s married to his high school sweetheart. He keeps busy as a separated dad to his 14-year-old daughter, Jennifer, who was busy with field hockey last fall and Nordic skiing this winter. He stays in touch with Joe ’75 and Joanne Defilipp Alex. * Janet Breslin Gilmartin stays in touch with Nancy Gervais Finnegan ’77, whom she’s seen a few times in Maine. She’s also in touch with Barbara Brennan Silano, who lives in California; Janet saw her a few years ago. * Several people have insisted I write an update about me, so here goes. I’ve been a freelance development editor for umpteen years, working mostly on industrial, manufacturing, and business-related professional books and textbooks. For the past four years I’ve headed Oasis Players, a vocal ensemble that specializes in elegant cabarets featuring mostly Great American Songbook selections. We perform throughout Monmouth County in central New Jersey, occasionally venturing across county lines. In my spare time I specialize in groveling—either to you, my classmates, for news, or to the ever-patient staff at Colby for extensions for the column! Please remember to give to the Colby Fund. And start circling June 2-5, 2016, on your calendar. Yes, my friends, our next reunion is only two years away, and I’m counting on you to be there. Yes, you!
