Greetings, All,

Just a note to let you know that Meredith and I will be in Maine soon.  I am planning on attending the celebration of life for Charlie Rodis on Aug. 4 in Poland Springs.  Wondering if any of the rest will be doing the same.

Judith Power (Despres)

Unfortunately we won't be there, Curt, so we won't see you, but I am glad you can be there for Charlie. Enjoy your trip to Maine; hello to Meredith!

Hope you folks have a good trip out and it's not real hot when you get here....

Curt Stockford (Stockford)

Thanks, Judy.  I've done no advance planning for this trip, or I would have tried to set something up with you and Tom, as well as a number of other classmates. How is it possible to be so busy, and, yet, so lazy in retirement? I certainly am hoping for another lifetime in order to make up for the shortcomings I visited upon this one!

Curt Stockford (Stockford)

Thanks, Arny. Will try to call, and catch up.  Our best to Josephine!

The video added by Tom Prince is priceless. I think I see Janice Mitchell, Ramona Lavigne, Ginny Bowden, Susan Riley, & Robert Holt. Also Jimmy Ferguson, I think, in the Cub Scout uniform. It's adorable.

FYI, it's 77 degrees & sunny today on Sanibel Island. Of course, I'm at the office, always wearing flip flops! Happy Thanksgiving, to all.

Judith Power (Despres)

Thanks, Susan! I knew someone would recognize that classroom and those faces ~

Regarding the video my mother recorded of 3rd grade in 1956 at Wentworth Dennett...I noticed David Chadwick, Bob Holt, Bob Coleman, Ginny Bowden, Sheila Whitney, Janice Mitchell, Bruce Chapman and myself.  I'll check again and see who else I recognize.

Robert McCrillis

Okay guys, 

Please help with location of video. Third grade at Wentworth-Dennett was Mrs. Silver? I know she had me pegged as a jerk right from go -- turned out to be a lifelong affliction

Dixie McLean

Robert, go to the home page and see the announcement about Tom’s video and click on the Class Pictures link.

11/26/19 07:02 AM #134    


Judith Power (Despres)

Some people are having a problem opening the video; if you are, try clicking on the arrow in the box in the upper right hand corner. This will open it in a new window and that should work!

11/26/19 05:39 PM #135    

Robert McCrillis

Dixie and Judith, 

Thank you for helping me find the video. The only person I can add is Veronica Rogers so far.

11/26/19 05:44 PM #136    

Robert McCrillis

Oh, and do either of you remember the teacher's name? Why that's meaningful is a mystery to me but I would like to know.



11/26/19 06:20 PM #137    


Judith Power (Despres)

Tom Prince says it was Mrs. Parsons third grade class; I can't disagree since I wasn't there!

11/27/19 10:52 AM #138    

Robert McCrillis

Tom is absolutely correct! Thank you.

Now I have to figure out who else I recognize in that class. Funny, they all look like sorta generic little kids. Excluding Ginny Bowden's hair, Bobby Holts face (which never changed), Jimmy Ferguson's smile, etc. Maybe I should get my glasses prescription adjusted.



11/27/19 01:25 PM #139    

Robert Holt

I concur with Mrs. Parsons. Ms. Hopkins was 4th. Mr Russell was 5th. I think Msr. Varney was 6th, and principal.

   Maybe - it is all very foggy now.                 



11/28/19 09:45 PM #140    

Janice Mitchell (Cook)

Yes, Mrs Varney, who was also the principal, taught us for half a day in 6th grade.  Some of us had Mrs. Smart as a 5th grade teacher.  Hazel Fowels was the lunch lady who made us hot meals every day!!

Does anyone remember the "fern collection and identification project" we did?

11/29/19 06:58 AM #142    

Ramona Lavigne (Dow)

I well remember collecting all those ferns!  Mr Russell taught us well .

11/29/19 10:42 AM #143    

Robert McCrillis


I remember collecting ferns down by the railroad tracks. Is it possible we did this together? Very dim possible memoryl.

Robert Holt

Good ole Mr Rissel. I had done something and he took me into the coat room in the back snd grabbed me by the shoulders and shook the crap out of me. I laughed at him and he shook me more.!! I do remember the fern project as well. 🤪
