IMG_8722Hi all, its been a fun six months since we last “spoke” and my how its flown.  My oldest, Alexander, is just finishing 4th grade and my youngest, Ellie, is about to turn 1 year old on July 8th!  When I’m not running all over creation with the kids, I’m working on my cake business and volunteering at church.  We have a busy summer ahead of us full of summer camp, birthday parties and day trips … I hope everyone’s summer is equally as exciting.  And now the news from our classmates …

Kelli Jessum Rokita ’99 is still teaching 1st grade and living in Gilbertsville, PA.  She and John continue to keep busy with the roller coaster ride of having 3 yr old twins (Kiley & Tommy)!

Pamala Washington ’99 recently married Emilee Frost in a inspirational seaside wedding in York Harbor Maine, April 14, 2012.  In attendance were, Holly Rebert Ray ’00, Kenya Ray ’99, Cheron Jones ’00, Danika Hernadez Stubbs ’99 and Angela Watson ’99 (in spirit).  Pamala & Emile currently reside with their 2 teenage sons, Porter (16) and Justin (15) in Saco Maine and says she can’t believe her babies are all grown up!  She currently manages the Maine Adult Drug Treatment Court and is continuing to take graduate classes toward her Masters In Public Policy.

Allison Bell Barrett ’99 just recently got married to Sean Barrett in Middletown, MD on April 27 2013. Patricia Vauls played viola during our ceremony. And the following Hoodlums were in attendence: Jennifer LaMonica Jackson ’02 , Tele Tarpeh ’02, Betty Gebreselassie, Stephanie Gordy Clark  ’98, and Jessica Palazzi ’99. They went to Ireland for their honeymoon and had a wonderful time. They currently reside in Arlington, VA with their cat, Tobago.

Word comes from Margaret Farmer ’99 that Erin Lenzing ’99 married Ricky Petrone, of Walpole on November 16, 2010. The wedding took place at the outpatient rehab facility where they first met, and was attended by Margaret Farmer ’99, Becky Roman-Annacone ’99, and Heather Liska ’99. The two look froward to moving in together when Ricky finishes his sentence. Margaret also notes that she recently returned from a medical volunteer trip in Zanzibar where she assisted in inoculating the local people. Margaret is very happy to be back and Yellow Fever free. She can be reached at nbjmmf@hotmail.com.
