Liza MacKinnon and Brian Knies ’97 plan to marry on July 10 on Block Island. They are hoping that many of their UVM friends will join them for the happy occasion.

Chris Siliski recently returned from managing nationwide operations for a large non-profit organization to pursue a master’s degree in education from UVM. Countries he has worked in over the past ten years include Latvia, Lebanon, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, and, most recently, Afghanistan. His efforts involved managing civic participation and conflict reduction programs resulting in hundreds of mid-size infrastructure projects (clean water, rehabilitated schools, clinics, etc.), all desperately needed by refugee and other at-risk communities. Dug North wrote to share the news that he has opened an artist studio in Chelmsford, Mass., where he creates hand-cranked animated wood sculptures, sometimes called “contemporary automata.” His work can be seen at www.dugnorth.com. Since his photograph was in a recent Vemont Quarterly, Erik Hartog felt it appropriate to update the UVM community on his whereabouts. (He was pictured in the Fall Quarterly on page 47 reaching towards the phone.) Erik recently returned to New York City after having lived in The Netherlands for the past several years. His arrival coincided with the birth of his first child, Madeline Heller Hartog, who hopes to be a member of UVM’s class of 2025. Erik is a partner in a small derivatives trading firm operating in several public option exchanges. Timothy Ihlefeld of Fairfield, Conn., was appointed managing director for the New York branch offices of COMSYS. He has a ten-year background in technical sales and sales management.

Hello classmates! I hope this update finds all of you doing well. Thanks to all who submitted your updates to me. Please keep them coming. Your UVM buddies want to hear all about you. Here’s my update: Oliver Fritsch and I got married on New Year’s Eve in Ira Allen Chapel. Issa Sawabini ’99, Rebecca Morocco ’99, Jodi Fuggasser ’99, and Kate Kelly were all members of the wedding party. Many of our other UVM friends, teammates, and profs were also there to help make our celebration so special. Thank you all! Following the wedding, we took an amazing three-month honeymoon in Lake Tahoe and Hawaii. We returned to Boston (and to work) in April. While in Tahoe, we ran into many UVMers. JC Nichols ’99 and Morgan Nichols ’04 came out to visit their sister, Danielle Nichols ’99, who is coaching the ski team at Sugar Bowl. All of us went to the NCAA Ski Championships to cheer on UVM’s team and to support UVM coach Erica MacConnell ’01. Brandon Dyksterhouse was at the NCAAs as a coach as well. He led his University of New Mexico team to an NCAA championship, and he did a great job. We also ran into Kyleigh Spitz ’02, Chris Mercier ’02, Will Lash, and Dave Westall on the slopes at Squaw Valley this winter. I have received word about lots of upcoming UVM weddings. Kate Kelly, Becky Morocco ’99, Sarah Laidlaw ’01 and Martin Wilde ’01, Kate Goodchild ’01 and Dennis Moser ’01, Megan Maddes ’99, JC Nichols ’99 and Margaux Mercier ’99, Christa Goodman ’01, as well as Leigh Ault.

Her best friend and boyfriend, Andrew Parrella, put his degree in English to work as her chief editor when she wrote her thesis last fall. In their spare time, they have been enjoying Boston’s theater scene. It’s great to read about so many UVM alums here in Boston. Among them are Joan’s sister, Cate Cross (’97) Karlhuber and Matt Sgro ’99, both of whom Joan sees regularly. She also keeps in touch with Hattie Arsenault, although she resides outside of Massachusetts. Joan was glad to read that Rob Pontbriand ’99 is “keeping things real” for the mayor of Fitchburg, Mass.
