Greetings from the beautiful state of North Carolina; sandy (not rocky) Outer Banks beaches to Blue Ridge Parkway mountains! Come visit!

I recently had a delightful phone call from Bonnie Huether Yanosy, who like many of us northerners, has moved south. She and her husband are also in Brunswick County, just “down the road apiece,” enjoying more days of golf and the warmer weather. We hope to get together soon.

Steve Harth ’68G (MBA) is president of Dispenser Services, a very successful South Carolina-based company that sells coffee, citrus juices, and specialty beverages to the institutional food marketplace in the Carolinas and New England. He’s been doing this for 40 years and says he enjoys every day. He credits the Maine Business School (was in the first MBA class) for giving him an excellent education and has never forgotten how it has impacted his life. After graduation he moved around from Chicago to Rhode Island, San Francisco, Boston, and Charleston, where he now resides. Steve served on the UMaine Alumni Association board of directors for more than six years.

Carl E. Nelson G was one of 13 inducted into the Maine Sports Hall of Fame. Over his career he served as U.S. head trainer for the 1972 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan, and the 1976 Winter Games in Innsbruck, Austria. He pioneered sports medicine in central Maine as Colby College’s head trainer for four decades and served for more than 30 years as director of the Pine Tree Camp for children with physical disabilities.

Jerry Perkins created a float for his hometown of Orrington, Maine’s, Old Home Week parade in July. His float celebrated the University of Maine’s M Club — and it won first place!

Rick Woods is one of 22 who will join the Maine Basketball Hall of Fame in August. In 1963 he led Morse High School (Bath) to a 61-60, double overtime win over Stearns High School (Millinocket) in the Class LL state final and as a senior was named to the Bangor Daily News All-Maine first team and the All-New England first team. At the University of Maine he was a three-year starter.
