Charles Robinson was director of the Baltimore County Public Library for 40 years and has been retired for 18. He has returned to Maine every year—with the exception of the two years he spent “saving America from Communism in Korea.” Most summers he spent in Deer Isle, but 15 years ago he made the move to Ocean Park, which, as he says, is the part of Old Orchard Beach without the bars and motels. He reports that Colby is well-known in Ocean Park—but people who have heard of it in Maryland are “thin on the ground.” He visits the campus every couple of years and is afraid it will soon run out of room. * Peg Rodgers Nichols moved to Vermont four years ago, after her husband’s death, to be closer to her daughter in Middlebury. She has a cottage in a retirement community there and is leading a busy life, serving as librarian for the community’s library. She was also planning to join a project at the local elementary school to keep kids interested in books. She has done a lot of long-distance traveling in the past but currently is more interested in nearby jaunts. She was anticipating a trip to New York City to see how spring felt there. She expected it would be a vast improvement over the winter in Vermont. * Dale Avery Benson spent last fall cleaning out and packing up her house in Virginia Beach to prepare for a complete renovation due to a severe mold problem. After two months of spending nights with family and working days at the house, she was able to go to Chicago to spend Christmas with her son Tom and his family. From Chicago she traveled to Michigan to stay with her niece Tara and then to Palm Beach to be with Jean Chickering Nardozzi in Hobe Sound. While there she visited with two nephews and a niece and their families. Son Jim and family did a wonderful job getting the house back in order for her return in February. Finish work went on after she arrived home, but “I have a beautiful new house inside.” Sadly, Dale lost her sister Polly, brother Alden, and a dear friend this year. Despite of these losses, she feels very blessed to have living nearby a wonderful son and his wife and children, an 18-month-old great-grandson, a little girl due in June, and nieces and nephews. She is happy and loves her home, though she is starting to think about a retirement home. Both her son Tom and daughter Carolyn were planning to visit in the spring. They rarely get home, so she was looking forward to their visits. Tom is president of his company, and Carolyn has been doing contract work.
