From Lori Ingham Chauvette: "To those who knew me - I'm here, and I have a decent job! No more Hannaford's! Yeah! The irony being that I'm now a reporter for a newspaper in Laconia called The Citizen, which is what I was in college for in the first place. But I'm hoping this will be a step towards doing movie reviews down the line. Doug and I are doing fine, living in Holderness. We are currently legally married, but are planning a ceremony in March. Because of me taking the new job, I had to move to the area. The option that made the most sense was moving in with Doug, but I didn't feel right about doing it before we were married, so we did the legal thing now and are still going to have a ceremony. My extended family doesn't know yet, so I'm still using my maiden name at work. Doug's kids are fine; James, 11, goes to middle school. (Where does the time go?) Rachel is going into second grade. My nephew Patrick is a year old already! How time flies! And every day he's looking more and more like my brother, which is getting really scary. Well, that's it for me. Thought I would get the ball rolling for our class."
John Frazzetta writes, "I am working at Merrimack High School in a program called PASS. The program works with students that suffer from moderate to severe depression and anxiety.
