Scott Vandersall is still working in commercial lending with TD Bank, but he has relocated to Cape Cod from Hampton, N.H. Scott had “lots of laughs” playing golf with Bob Clark, Joel Harris, and Steve Pfaff at Turner Hill in Ipswich, Mass., last summer. * Kimberly Hokanson’s oldest son, Nate, began at Goucher College in Baltimore last fall. * Mark Bloom lives in the scenic Appalachian mountain town of Asheville, N.C. “In other words, in relative isolation from anything Colby.” A book Mark recently edited, Not Lost for Lookin’: A fly-fishing romance ghost-story adventure of the High Sierras!, is available through lulu.com. * Dani Nemec Micsan (my enthusiastic choice for our next correspondent!) had dinner in D.C. with Bob Ryan just before Christmas. Bob was there for a conference. Dani is training for the Nike Women’s Half Marathon D.C. in April, and she is registered for the half marathon in Munich, Germany, in June. “I’m totally half crazy.” Dani also reports on two classmates: Carrie Bingham Boera is a grandmother, and Kathy Gallop Chase is finally on Facebook reconnecting with Colby friends. * Monterey Arts Council executive director Paulette Lynch spoke at TEDxMonterey in early December. In her talk, The Arts Are the Answer, Paulette explored how the arts permeate science, justice, education, and the economy. See her talk at youtu.be/YiH4mX-uUKM. * Karen Baumstark Porter sends greetings from Omaha. Her youngest child, Anna, 15, performed as a selectively chosen member of the All-American Cheerleaders team in London’s New Year’s Day Parade in front of 400,000 onlookers. The parade was also broadcast all over the world, so Karen forewent her usual New Year’s Eve festivities in favor of rising at 6 a.m. New Year’s Day to proudly watch Anna online.
