Hope everyone made it through the winter intact. Spring can never come too early here in northern New England. It’s a good time to catch up on what the Class of ’82 has been up to.

Kris Scribner Cornish closed her Lisbon business, Drapeau’s Costumes, at the end of 2017. The store was the go-to place for costume rentals for Halloween, parties, and theater performances for more than 60 years. Kris liquidated the entire collection of thousands of costumes, many hand-sewn, before closing the shop. Good luck to Kris in the next chapter!
