Class of 1977 Summer 2022 Class Note

Greetings, everyone, and happy summer!

Barry Somes, of Yarmouth, writes that he has published a novel, Beware of the Banker, a Maine crime fiction story that takes place in Portland. It was inspired by the true story of Bonnie and Clyde. The book is based on Barry’s experience working in a bank and also from his experiences living in a fraternity at UMO. Lots of fun to read, and available on Amazon!
