|KEENE STATE TODAY||VOLUME XVIII NUMBER 4 Summer 2003|
Helen Kimball Houston sent a long, newsy letter. She writes that all is well except for failing eyes and bones that keep her from moving around as much as she would like to. Helen still goes to church and to the Merrimack County Home Auxiliary functions. Last summer she had a trip to the Mountain View Grand Hotel in Whitefield, N.H., where she had worked for two summers back in the 1920s. Helen's grandson was married Dec. 28 on top of Cannon Mountain, and she was planning to attend if they could keep her warm.

Rosetta Brown Lowe spent the holidays with her two sons. She is fortunate to have them living close by. This winter, Rosetta enjoyed watching the snowmobilers who stop at the restaurant across the highway from where she lives. But she really looked forward to spring and a chance to go outside.

Elizabeth Welch entertained Norma Wright Walker '51 and her husband Edwin. Elizabeth enjoyed the bread and other goodies they brought to her.
Evelyn Warren Bailey was ready for spring to arrive after being stuck inside due to all the snow, wind, and cold weather. During the winter months she tries to keep busy with needlepoint and crocheting, but she would rather be outside working in her garden.
