Tom Maines ’00G retired as boys’ basketball coach at Morse High School in Bath, ME, after an amazing career. Tom is a member of the New England Basketball Hall of Fame and the Maine Basketball Hall of Fame. He began coaching high school basketball in 1968 and became one of the most successful high school basketball coaches in Maine history.

David Broadbent ’74G wrote that he and his wife, Paulette Stanchfield Broadbent ’69, live in Florida for the winter and early spring months in a small condo in North Palm Beach. In April they leave Florida to spend the summer months and early fall in their beloved Blueberry Cottage in Prospect Harbor. Although David has retired as pastor of the United Methodist Church, he is still appointed to serve as pastor at the Franklin United Methodist Community Church in Franklin, ME, for the summer. Paulette is a retired teacher and enjoys making outfits for 18-inch dolls and donating them to the Haitian ministry.

Bob and Shirley Hanson McCarthy wrote that they remained at their home in Pennsylvania during the COVID epidemic but were able to get over to their shore home from time to time.

As for me, I’ve been developing educational curricular materials, writing short stories, and teaching second grade through distance learning, and I am finally able to say, “Isn’t it hopeful to see the light at the end of the tunnel in terms of the pandemic?”
