Yes, storks do visit in New Orleans,
and we will have proof as Emily Hall
(‘90s & ‘00s) and Scott Beckett are
expecting baby #2! Emily brought us news in May when
she visited, and as expectant mothers tend to be, she
was glowing! Older sister Kit is ecstatic to find out if she
will have a little brother or sister.
News that Jacob Hartung’s (‘90s & ‘00s) family is growing
as he and his wife, Merideth, are welcoming baby girl #2
Kate Sommers-Dawes (‘90s & ‘00s) and husband David
are eagerly awaiting the arrival of her first baby this
winter. We know that uncle Xander Sommers (‘80s, ‘90s,
‘00s) will spoil this baby rotten like he does for so many
other GG alum babies.
Amy Stanesco was glowing at the Council Fire in
September as she announced news that she and
husband Tom Robbins, are expecting their first baby.
Extraordinary news from Paige Kack Owen (‘00s) as she
and her hubby Bill announced via Facebook that they will
be welcoming triplets this winter. Paige worked at GG as
one of our nurses in 2009.
Double the fun for the
families! Twins seem to
be in fashion as progeny
bundles of joy graced
our GG family! March
brought a stork visit to
Chelsea Williamson (‘90s
& ‘00s) and Joey Lawrenz
(‘90s & ‘00s), as Maggie and Lou bounded in at a chunky
weight. Of course Red (‘70s) and Cathie Williamson are
in love. These cuties have many extended GG alums on
both sides of the family. We can’t wait to welcome them
to GG in 2026!
Jane Rockwell Carlson
(‘70s) and Douglas, are
elated to be the proud
grandparents to twin
girls. Lily and Maggie
were born in early May to
parents David (‘90s &
‘00s) and Rachel Carlson.
We know great-grandma,
Bea Miller Romer (‘40s), was overjoyed, and expects to
teach them songs from when she was a counselor in the
‘40s. We can just imagine Andrew (‘90s & ‘00s) as the
Best Uncle on the Planet! Congratulations to all!
Knowing the genes in this family,
little Devlin Moriarty, is blessed
with musical talent and plenty of
stage presence. We are happy for
Ciara Gay (‘90s & ‘00s) and Richie

aunt Alana (‘90s, ‘00s, ‘10s), uncle
Jeff (‘90s & ‘00s), and cousin Tenley Gowin are over the
Dane Harbaugh (‘90s & ‘00s)
and wife, Andrea, proudly
introduced little Sadie to the
world in February. Dane’s
brother Dave (‘90s & ‘00s) will

needed! We imagine Sadie
will soon love horses and
wolves (if grandma Valerie has
Delighted for Xan White (‘90s & ‘00s) and
wife, Jess, who welcomed new little girl,
Eleanor Sara on April 15! They are
presently living in Northern California, but
with grandparents in Denver, we hope they
will show her off to us soon!
Recalling Matt Clifton’s (‘80s & ‘90s) days in the
dodgeball court and now he has transitioned into a dad
living in Oakland, CA. His daughter,
Nora, was born March 7 and
weighed in at 9 lbs 5 ozs! Barb
Clifton (‘80s), long time GG cook
and mother of Matt is a proud
grandma. Brother Ian Clifton (‘80s &
‘90s) must be delighted too. Ian’s
sons Alex and Andrew are already
veterans of the GG magic.
Erin Meier Borgman (‘90s & ‘00s)
and Tim welcomed another
daughter, Elise Quinn, to their family in August. Big sister
Alexandra and must be thrilled about her!

gals is already spoiling Audrey!

baby boy named John last winter.
We know that baby John must
share his father’s megawatt smile.
