1934

As always, it was a joy having Barbara Auderer Goodridge with the Golden Circle when it met at the Cat 'n' Fiddle in Concord, N.H. It was because of her idea to meet that our luncheons began back in 1997.

A wonderful letter arrived from Ruth Nelson Towle. She has been a volunteer at the Edgewater Public Library in Edgewater, Fla. Recently, she moved to a retirement village in Holly Hill, Fla. Already she has become involved in many activities. As a student at Keene Normal School, which was the first time she was away from home and scared, she lived in Fiske Hall. She hopes that the renovations will bring back the dorm she knew.


1936

Ferne Coffin Fogg writes about the hot, dry weather and nearby forest fires in Montana. She said the temperature has been 100 degrees and above. Ferne enjoyed a trip east in July to visit family and friends. She was glad to be back in New England, even for short time. Fern wrote about living in Fiske Hall and working in the downstairs dining room, where she waited on tables and stacked dishes to be washed. Many alumni have these same memories. She also wrote about picnics at the College Camp, with swimming, dancing, and all kinds of outdoor games.

A welcome letter arrived from Velma Pierce Smith, who lives in Upsala, Ontario, Canada. She said the weather was good, so they had a great garden and beautiful flowers. Val has many fond memories of Keene Normal School because she attend and so did her husband, daughter Martha, and Martha's husband.

It's always nice to have Bernice Bookstrom Miller with the KSC group at the Cat 'n' Fiddle in Concord, N.H. She was recognized for perfect attendance. Bernice hasn't missed a single luncheon in 10 years.
