Thanks to Jean Desper Thurston, I have a bit of news. She writes, “This past June, three former Mower House residents had their second annual mini-reunion at my house in Nobleboro, Maine. Betsy Brown Gordon, Elaine Noyes Cella, and I spent three days together. We visited the Pemaquid Lighthouse Museum and Art Gallery and the Maine Botanical Garden in Boothbay. Despite the very hot weather we had a good time, although we were disappointed that Janet Pride Davis unexpectedly couldn’t come and that Kathryn Garrick Alex had a family event.” * Well, you can see I meant it when I said “a bit of news!” Hopefully, I’ll hear from more of you when my next request for news hits your e-mail inbox.
