Theodora (Teddy) Wright Weston writes, “Our numbers are dwindling, but here’s one who is still hanging in there. My husband of 67 years died in 2009 but I’m blessed with good health and a supportive family. Rheumatoid arthritis hampers me a bit but I find there is still a lot I can do. Activity in the local historical association has been most interesting and my book, More River Town History, was published in November. Although I’m 91, I’m able to be quite active and enjoy a mile walk whenever weather permits. I’m still in my own home and can drive my car. Don’t know why I should be so fortunate.” * Margaret Campbell Timberlake enjoys a rather low-key life. She’s still in her house, which is a challenge, and enjoys an occasional getaway, though not far away! Her friends are an inspiration and she too feels very fortunate. * On Oct. 20 Ben Harding, who served in World War II, was awarded the medals he earned serving in the Naval Reserve. He received the awards from Maine U.S. Representative Chellie Pingree at a ceremony in Thomaston, Maine. Ben was presented the WWII Victory, American Campaign, Pacific Campaign, and European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign medals. Ben writes, “Representative Pingree and her staff did an outstanding job.” Thank you for your service Ben.
