Class Notes 1924

Irene McNamara Freeman turned 99 on March 26, 2002. She attended the first Golden Circle Luncheon held at the Indian Shutters in Charlestown, N.H., back in 1997. Always nice to hear from Irene.

Cassie Haven Sweet was looking forward to nice warm weather after the late snowstorm in Rutland, Vt. She was also hoping Norma Wright Walker '51 would visit her this summer.

Helen Kimball Houston joined many other KSC alumni for Reunion 2002. She attended the Golden Circle meeting, where she was greeted by Dr. Yarosewick. Helen had her picture taken with the Golden Circle alumni and by herself to represent the Class of 1924. She inquired about her good friend and classmate, Abbie Shea Brown. It was so nice to have Helen with us.


1925

Helen Bronson Preble is a KNS friend of Cassie Haven Sweet '24. She was delighted to receive the Golden Circle medallion. Her daughter-in-law took a photo of Helen wearing it for the Golden Circle photo album. Helen still does some knitting and writes a beautiful letter, even though she says her eyesight is failing at the age of 98. Do keep those letters coming, Helen, because we always enjoy reading them.

IN MEMORIAM: Eleanor Collier Eaby '25 passed away May 10, 2002, two days before her 98th birthday. She died at the home of her daughter in East Orleans, Mass., where she had lived for the past seven years


1927

Margaret Grover Colburn walks every day the weather permits. She misses the big garden that she and her husband used to have, but she still raises a few tomato plants and has a flower garden. Margaret was surprised to receive the Golden Circle medallion in the mail. She can't believe that 75 years have flown by so quickly. Margaret sent a lovely photo of herself wearing the medallion. Thank you, Margaret, for the photo, which will go into the Alumni Album.

Alumni director Mike Maher '72 and Norma Walker '51 had a delightful visit with Rosetta Brown Lowe. She shared very interesting stories of when she was a teacher. Later on, she was often asked to speak about the history of Hinsdale to the schoolchildren. She is presently sharing her wealth of information with the Hinsdale and Winchester Historical Societies. As Mike and Norma were leaving, Rosetta presented each with two dozen of her homemade cookies.

Elizabeth Harrison Thomas received a visit from Norma Walker. They shared memories of KNS and KSC, as well as Norma's student teaching days with Betty's husband, Sandy. Betty taught in the same school with Rosetta Lowe in South Acworth.


1928

Elizabeth Welch had just finished her lunch after a late ride from church when Norma Walker arrived for a visit. Miss Elizabeth is always cheerful and has wonderful stories to share with Norma, seeing they were neighbors (four miles apart) in Hancock. She was a substitute teacher in her hometown, so often Norma was her student.


1929

Evelyn Warren Bailey enjoyed the Keene State Today issue that had the map of the campus on the cover. She can't believe how the College has grown since she was a student. Evelyn said she felt like an Olympian when she received her Golden Circle medallion. She wishes she lived closer so she could attend the luncheons that are held. Evelyn likes to knit and do a little crocheting, but needlepoint is her favorite. She also does a daily crossword puzzle to keep her mind active.

IN MEMORIAM: Martha Hill Robertson '29 died October 13, 1992.
