Hello, ’59ers —

I think at last we are starting to come out of the long, cold COVID winter. As I write this, crocuses are up and spring is here.

I received a very long message from Paul Hanson. His wife, Nelly, passed away and his house keeper came with two boys, 8 and 15, so his house now is very active. His big news is that he has written a book, Paul Henry Hanson Stories, about his life. It was published by Story Works in 2020. They suggested subjects to fit his life. There are 31 chapters and he intends to add another about his hobby of restoring cars.

St. Joseph College in Standish contacted him for a project. They wanted someone ”old” to tell a story to a special writing class and the class would rewrite it. He told them the chapter of his high school years. It was given on Zoom to the class. He is extremely proud of this accomplishment.

I had a phone call from Carlene Shibles Blanchard ’67G and we had a long talk about days at Maine.

Carlene lived at the Elms while there. She said quite a few of the “Elms girls” continue to keep in touch.

Received a nice note from Lynn Anderson McLeod. She and husband, Don, have curtailed travel during the pandemic. They did, however, take their annual trip to Freeport! She sent the latest brochure from the Asticou Inn, Northeast Harbor, where we both worked summers. The McLeods live in Tolland, CT.

I am hoping for more news for my next column — don’t wait, just send it anytime.
Please contact some of your classmates; they would love to hear from you.

Let’s keep in touch!
’Til next time!
