Class Notes, 2010 July/August

July/August 2010

Summer is finally here and it's time to get outdoors and experience the beautiful weather! Our classmates continue to keep busy with a variety of exciting and impressive careers, activities, and life choices. Without ado, here's the latest.

We've got lots of athletic achievements to celebrate this summer. First, an update from our last column: Kathy Kraus Bolks brought us news of Doug Derraugh, who has been building a great women's ice hockey team on the Hill over the last few years. I'm thrilled to report that his success is continuing in a big way! A big congratulations to Doug for leading the Cornell Women's Ice Hockey Team to an ECAC regular season title and tournament championship. The team also won two rounds of National Collegiate Women's Ice Hockey Championship games before losing the title game to the U. of Minnesota, Duluth in the last minute of the third overtime period. For his outstanding success this year, Doug was named the 2010 Division I Women's Ice Hockey Coach of the Year. In other sports news, Doug Derraugh, Jeff Weintraub, MD '95, and Joe DeLuca all attended the "Sweet 16" in Syracuse, NY, to cheer on the Big Red against the U. of Kentucky in the school's first appearance in that round of tournament play.

Congratulations to Kathy Mary Dean-Bradley, who passed all four portions of the Uniform Certified Public Accountant Exam and has received her CPA designation. Kathy is a senior accountant at Belfint, Lyons and Shuman PA, located in Wilmington, DE. Andy Peters works as an administrator at Long Island Crisis Center, a not-for-profit youth services organization, while writing and submitting fiction for publication. His short story "The Vain Prince" was published in the gay literary journal Ganymede. Andy launched to promote his creative projects. Chris Reynolds (Cold Spring Harbor, NY) and wife Ginette have been keeping busy running after their children, ages 8, 5, 2, and a newborn. Chris works as a bond broker while enjoying paddle tennis, hockey, and golf in his free time.

In baby news, Stephen Schwartz (Naples, FL) and wife Melanie (Rebak) '90 welcomed a new addition to their family. Oliver Mason was born on March 5, 2010. Big sister Jessica, 8, and brother Reid, 5, are thrilled to have a new buddy to play with. Stephen is the associate professor of clinical ophthalmology at the U. of Miami, Bascom Palmer Eye Inst. Matthew Price is an interventional cardiologist at the Scripps Clinic in La Jolla, CA. He is the proud father of Alexander, 5, and Gabriella, 6 months. Despite his oceanside locale, Matthew reports that he is still not a surfer!

Patrick Moore reported that he traveled to New Orleans with Delta Upsilon alumni Rob Ryder, Jay Bloedorn, Doug Gamble, Kevin Marcus '92, Pete Vogel '92, Geoff Hill '92, Pete Reynolds '92, Matt Moscati '94, Mike Trimarco '92, Ron Conte '92, and Brennan Doyle '92 for a community outreach project. They donated their time and money to help restore historic pubs and provide clothing to young mothers in need. The group also found some time to attend the Florida vs. LSU football game and visited the local DU chapter to speak to the young men there about drinking responsibly. Dorothy Patton and her family plan to return to the Washington, DC, area this summer after an embassy posting in London, England. Dorothy and her husband have taken advantage of every opportunity to travel with their two sons to Europe, Africa, and Asia over the past three years. They look forward to a Cornell Forensics reunion and returning to friends and family this summer.

Last September, Deanna Conoscenti (Chicago, IL) was married; she and husband Kevin spent their honeymoon in Italy, cycling through Tuscany and then to Cinque Terre to hike and relax. The couple had a wonderful time on their trip and spent the dreary Chicago winter longing to return. Deanna could certainly use another vacation as she is now busy keeping up with her husband's two boys! David Warner (Boston, MA) is president of Warner Larson Landscape Architects, which relocated to Boston in 2008. The firm managed to survive 2009 and is experiencing growth defying the odds in 2010. David says he is starting to see the rewards of many years of hard work! Most recently, he has been working on an innovative outdoor classroom design in a Boston schoolyard.
