Class Notes 1960

When you read this we will be even closer to celebrating our 45th in 2005! Would you like to help plan? Ideas are needed, and although you may be living away from New Hampshire, your opinions are necessary for a successful gathering. If you haven't received any correspondence, please expect it soon. If you have, please reply now.

In June 2002, Dorothy McCarthy Bright came to Amherst, N.H., for her nephew's high school graduation. Dotty and I met for a short visit in Manchester. It is amazing how even though you may not have seen someone for a long period, the time seems to just melt away. Remembrances truly last a lifetime. Dotty and husband Roy divide their time between homes in Tucson, Ariz., and Portland, Ore. They also have been enjoying two young grandchildren.

Mark Waltz is living in Warren, Maine, and has been thinking of an appropriate way to honor his dad, Maynard Waltz, who so capably instructed so many of us.

Perley Henderson should win an award for attending the most KSC Reunions. I look forward to seeing him again. Alvah Adams and his lovely wife usually drive from Rutland, Vt., to Reunion.

So many of you remain active! Roland Blanchard is president of the New Hampshire Retired Teachers Association. Joe Dutile is president of the Manchester Retired Teachers group. Sister Claire Coll continues with her counseling work at Berakah Center in Pittsfield, N.H. We had a short but wonderful visit a few weeks ago. Richard and Joanna Cotter retired this past June from Pinkerton Academy in Derry, N.H. Now they will be spending more time at their home in Rye, N.H.

From Robert W. Blakslee: "I am retired and spend seven to eight months at my home in Punta Gorda, Fla., and the remainder of the time in Barrington, N.H."


1962

Harriet Allen Maynard in Wilmington, Vt., writes, "Still going! Active in Wilmington Historical Society as president, also regent in Brattleboro DAR chapter, part-time town clerk, and flower gardener. Can't pass up a good nursery or plant swap! Hello home ec majors, class of '62, wherever you are!"


1963

IN MEMORIAM: Robert A. Clemons '63 died July 7, 2003, in Nashua, N.H., following a courageous battle with cancer. He served in the Peace Corps in Liberia in 1963-65 and then in the U.S. Army in Vietnam. He earned two master's degrees at Rivier College and taught in Chelmsford, Mass., for 32 years until his retirement in 2000.


1968

IN MEMORIAM: Donna Nims Rice '68 died in April 2003 in Brattleboro, Vt. She was a kindergarten teacher in Westminster, Vt., and a clerk in the Westminster post office.

Nan Hodgdon received the honor of being nominated by a past student now in high school for inclusion in Who's Who among American Teachers. Nan teaches fourth grade at Rollinsford (N.H.) Grade School.
