For the 26th year, St. Lawrence's Phi Kappa Sig-
ma fraternity held amini-reunion, this time inMay
in Central NewYork.
Bob Linton
and
Todd Kim-
berly
joined me and a few brothers from 1988,
1989
and 1990 to spend two days four-wheeling,
playing cards and catching up on good ol’ times.
Bob lives inWestchester and works in Manhattan,
while Todd, who is married to
Becky Ten Eyck
Kimberly
,
is still with ESPN after 15 years. Primar-
ily working now on ESPN.com material, Todd has
two kids and lives inWest Hartford, Conn.
While visiting Buffalo to watch his daughter’s
competition,
Greg Griffin
,
who lives outside
of Syracuse, N.Y., and is still busy fundraising,
stopped by to say hello. Greg travels quite a bit
and had just returned from Europe. Greg and for-
mer roommate
Tom Hobart
are just two of the
many classmates already committed to helping
our 25th Reunion in a few years!
Finally, in June and July, I saw
Les Kuntar
twice
a week as our kids played lacrosse together. Les
has two boys and is traveling the world with his
son’s elite hockey team. From Toronto to Mon-
treal to Vancouver and all over the U.S., Les told
me he was headed to Prague for a big youth tour-
nament. I think he thinks he may follow in Dad’s
footsteps…let’s tell Coach Carvel to keep on the
lookout for a little Kuntar in the near future!
If you have news to share about a recent move, a
recent promotion or a recent SLU gathering with
friends, please shoot me a message via email or
FaceBook. I look forward to hearing from you.

Chris Bunting
is living in Bozeman, Mont., with
his wife, Rebekah, and their children Eli, 6, and Av-
ery, 4. Chris co-founded and directs two non-prof-
its, The Northern Kenya Fund (NKF) and Beyond
Boundaries Institute.
NKF provides scholarships to high school stu-
dents in northern Kenya. It supports over 100
children per year, and focuses on funding girls.
The fund was co-founded with Chachu Ganya ’96,
now a member of the Kenya National Assembly,
in 2004. Beyond Boundaries seeks to help people
foster greater spiritual and physical well-being. It
primarily uses Hathaway yoga to fulfill this mis-
sion. It is producing a documentary film about
Andean spirituality, called Paqos Andino. It will be
released in 2013.
I hope we’ll get a better response next time to
my usual plea to write if there’s anything new, or
old, going on in your life.

A few days before this deadline, I started to panic
at the lack of news in my inbox. My subsequent
Facebook plea elicited a few responses, and I am
very grateful to these friends for sharing.
Matt Lyndaker
reported on a St. Lawrence
guys’ weekend” in the spring. He writes, “I got
together withTodd Ford ’94, Mark Tavern ’94, Alex
Bartlett '94, Jerry Peters '95 and Ken Hughes ’98
at Todd's house near Northampton, Mass. We
enjoyed some fun time together with good food,
drink and stories.”
Matt lives in the Buffalo area, where he is an as-
sistant vice president in the trust division of M&T
Bank Corp. Matt’s wife, Anne Marie Reynolds '94,
is medical director of the NICU atWomen's & Chil-
dren's Hospital of Buffalo. Matt writes that “in a
bit of son-trumps-father humor, Collin did on his
first try what I was never able to do in multiple
attempts: receive a perfect score on his NYSSMA
solo for band.”
Congratulations, Collin! I can’t wait to hear about
the next time you one-up your dear, old dad.

My husband, Wade Skidmore '98, in-laws June and
Dennis Skidmore '61, and I had somuch fun seeing
the new buildings and growth on campus as well
as all the familiar landmarks. What a great feeling it
was towatchour kids running around St.Lawrence,
playing with classmates’children.
During our visit we met up with
Bill Spagnolo
and Steve Polanish '98, who were having a good
time as they rode their bikes up together.
Denise
Durant
made an appearance with husband Mer-
rick; they will soon be welcoming their second
child! I shared many laughs with
Andre White
,
his wife, Jennifer, and their two gorgeous little
girls, Phoenix and Ryder.
Chris Butzbach
was there! He lives in Massa-
chusetts, with his wife and three children. State
Trooper
Rob
and
Beth Bullock Larrabee
,
first-
year college sweethearts and fabulous couple,
now with five daughters, made an appearance at
the class dinner. I was lucky enough to see
Gray
Bullard
and
Rick Hughes
as I was leaving Dana
Dining Center. Hopefully more classmates will
show up for our 20th!
Stephen Hann
and Molly Shubert Hann '03
welcomed Henry Shubert Hann into the world
on Monday, June 3, 2013, at 5:01 p.m. in Saranac
Lake, N.Y. Henry is their first child. Molly went into
labor while they were at Reunion. Perhaps it was
the visit to the KDS cold dorm or the trip to the
Outhouse Swamp that prompted Henry's arrival.
Grandmother "Mimi" Mary Munro Shubert '76 is
thrilled with her first grandson. They are hopeful
that Henry will follow in their footsteps and be in
the class of 2035...fingers crossed for scholarship!

We had a fantastic time with old and new friends
at our 15th Reunion in early June. The weather
was very warm (better than snow!) but generally
sunny for most of the events. We had about 20
classmates there, and nearly all of these updates
are a result of chatting with classmates over
breakfast, lunch or dinner, or while hanging out
in the very crowded Hoot Owl or the new-to-
most-of-us “The Club” on Park St. Even the eight-
plus-hour drive fromWashington felt completely
worth it upon walking onto campus for the first
time in over four years. For those who had not
been back in 15 years, it was likely disorienting,
particularly seeing a dorm being built in front of
our student center next to the Quad!
