family and life. Tom plays basketball a few times a week with a group that includes his nephew and JOE R. SY LV I A ’12. Joe started a career in the insurance business at Tennant Risk Services in West Hartford, Conn., and has been hard at work passing his exams and learning the ropes. Tom also keeps up with nephew, NICK P. M ALINOSK Y ’00. Nick has experienced substantial success in the high-end real estate business in southern Florida. May 2018 brings the 30th anniversary of the formation of Thomas Byrne Associates, an accounting and finance placement firm Tom has successfully operated in Farmington, Conn. DAV ID M. JACK shared the following:

“I announced the publication of Lila’s Dream, a children’s book for 6- to 9-year-old readers endorsed by No. 1 selling author Sheri Fink. Also, five percent of profits from the sale of Lila’s Dream will be donated to the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy when purchased at BookBaby. Lila’s Dream is the third book published by my company, Sightline Media Entertainment LLC, following The Furnace Room and The Treehouse Adventure.” In February, David was honored to be invited to conduct a workshop at Camp Mariposa, a national addiction prevention and mentoring program for youth. The program is funded by the Moyer Foundation for youth who have been impacted by substance abuse in their families. Lila’s Dream was used as the foundation for the discussion about believing in yourself and your dreams. David said, “The kids were polite, attentive, talented, and genuinely interested in writing down or drawing their goals and dreams. I was inspired by the dedication of the counselors and mentors working with these kids. They perfectly represent Avon’s motto to aspire and persevere!” On the home front he shared, all is well in Florida. He enjoys semi-retirement with his wife, Tammy. Emily, his daughter, graduates in May with a master of fine arts degree and his son, Greg, receives his diploma a day later with his undergraduate degree in criminal justice. David said, “I’m proud of my kids—both are honor society, straight A students. We must have done something right.”
