Carolyn Sclafani Mowat, carolynsclafani@gmail. com ■ Carolyn Sclafani Mowat writes: “It has been a big year over here. Our fish Sandy died this winter after having been overfed by the neighbors while we were away skiing. This is the second time this has happened to our fish and family. We are thinking about getting a dog but unsure how it will fair when we leave it for vacation. The twins Harper and Lochlan are almost 8 and Rosie is 11, finishing fifth grade and getting ready for middle school. My mother’s dream came true and I have children ‘just like me,’ which is terrifying. Euan and I continue to muddle through parenthood — hoping no permanent damage has been done. Still up in Massachusetts, but missing California six years later. I hope to run into some of you soon.” ■ Kim Bertrand writes: “After 20 years in the city, my family finally bought a house of our own in the 'burbs. We recently moved from our two-bedroom apartment in Boston to Milton, Massachusetts, just south of Boston. Luckily, we are still close to the city where I work as an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Boston University. Kids are growing up too quickly — Tyler is now 10 and Julie is 7. Feeling very fortunate.” ■ Pat Pendergast writes: “All good here in Miami. Sarah and I have been living in Florida now for 14 years, which seems crazy. Our twins Lily and Finn just turned 8. I have been working for the past nine years in the transportation industry for Ryder running talent acquisition and launching new products. Outside of work, I have been coaching lacrosse and trying to get some fishing in here and there. We get

up to Martha’s Vineyard in the summer to get our Northeast fix and spend weekends in the early summer in the Bahamas on the boat. Hope this note finds everyone doing well.” ■ Sarah Vukovich Mycroft writes: “Things are busy here in Barrington, Rhode Island. My husband Jack and I recently welcomed our fifth child, Rose. She joins her brothers and sisters Camille, 8, Jack, 7, Ben, 5, and Lily, 2. She’s pretty cute.” ■ Jane Nigra Gallina writes: “Proud mom of two girls, Sienna, 4, and Scarlett, 2. Now living in Montreal and loving life as an expat, day trader, author and host to the annual Modern Traders Summit in June each year.” ■ Amanda Coulon writes: “Living the Dream in New Canaan, Connecticut, with two girls Marin and Paloma, ages 7 and 5 and three dogs. Love seeing as many SG folks as I can on a regular basis but not enough and think we should plan a reunion soon.” ■ Eben Colby writes: “I still live with my wife and two boys just outside of Boston. My boys are playing a lot of hockey, so we spend an inordinate amount of time driving around to rinks; plus, I still play a couple of times a week. I’ve been back to campus a couple of times and caught an SG hockey game up here at BB&N. Looking forward to summer when we do a lot of sailing (racing and cruising) on Penobscot Bay in Maine. Work is good. I am still litigating at Skadden with a nice mix of civil litigation/ trials and government investigations. I have also been able to do some interesting pro bono work, including obtaining $22 million resolution in the largest labor trafficking case ever on behalf of Indian workers who were trafficked to the Gulf Coast after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. I also have a current case making constitutional claims on behalf of workers who were mistreated in a government raid of a meatpacking plant in Tennessee. It’s an interesting case that has gotten a lot of media coverage. Hope you and all of the ’95ers are doing well, and that everyone is planning to attend the next reunion. The last one was a great time.”

Jonathan W. Foster III, jfoster06417@yahoo. com ■ Jonathan Foster writes: “My wife and I have been enjoying Rhode Island since we moved to Bristol in 2015. We are just a short ride to SG and have been back a couple of times. We were honored to get married in the chapel in 2016. Our son, Glen, turned 2 in January and is growing up so fast. We both started new jobs this year. Laura works from home for a small consulting firm, and I started with a financial planning company in Providence. I recently had dinner with Christine Sallum, who also lives in Rhode Island. I have spoken to a few other people from the Class of 1997, including Hayes Hopple and Maher Hamdan, and look forward to reconnecting with more.” ■ Curtis Adams writes: “My wife Valerie and I live in Baltimore, and we had our third child in March. Grand plans for my 40th birthday party at the end of February were squashed. We had gender reveal parties for our son, 6, and daughter, 3, but the third baby we wanted it to be a surprise. I work for The Michaels Organization, specializing in affordable housing real estate development.”

I. Andrew McLaughlin, iamclaughlin@gmail.com / Anne Harvey Sharpe, adharvey8@ gmail.com ■ Chad DiStefano moved to Miami five years ago and got married. He was in NYC for a decade before that, mostly getting his soul crushed working for a few investment banks. He is enjoying his newfound quality of life. He has two girls, Luciana, 2.5 years, and Giovanna, 0.5 years, and a dog Giuseppe (5 years old.). Chad and his wife spend a lot of time in Telluride, Colorado, when not in Miami. Chad started his own investment management company two years ago, and has picked up hockey again. His team just wrapped up a three-peat as men’s C-League champions (dynasty?). Chad ran his first marathon this year. ■ Hera McLeod wasn’t able to make it to the reunion this year because she had a
