Hello, Class of 2002!
One of our classmates reached out; otherwise, this column would have been lighter than its normally brief length. Jonathan LaBonte is now managing a forest-based education, research, and outreach non-profit based in Augusta called the Maine Timber Research and Environmental Education Foundation (or Maine TREE). Maine TREE partners with UMaine by contracting for UMaine researchers to work a forest that Maine TREE owns in Arrowsic (near Bath), on the coast of Maine. Jonathan also reports that as of mid-December 2020, he now has two young aspiring Black Bears, Xavier Paul and Maverick Thomas. Congrats to the LaBonte family!
Updates continue to be light. Feel free to send me updates at the addresses above or track me down on Facebook. Please send news, updates, and photos for inclusion in future class columns to the addresses above; the Class of 2002 would love to hear from you!
Stay safe out there!
