                        RAYMOND, MAINE

                         DECEMBER, 2007

Much of my time since Agawam closed has been devoted to coaching
soccer. This fall was my 27th season as the Hanover High coach, and it
was a very satisfying one! Our two-game State Tournament run was
too short (losing to the eventual Div. II State Champion, no less!), but
the season was a great success, evidenced by the incredible speed at
which it passed! A little like the Royal Succession, one season ends,
and I eagerly look forward to another – the spring, with a traveling
team from Hanover.

        I’ve had a chance to travel to Maine several times this fall and
enjoy it more with each trip. Barbara and I have also ventured south to
New York City to visit “Skipper” Meredith Nelson, who is still living
in Manhattan and is a professional freelance writer and editor.

       Meanwhile, back on the shores of Crescent Lake, Agawam has
grown very quiet and peaceful again. I think the Camp actually de-
serves the 9 months of solitude between summers punctuated by the
fun and activity of our 134 enthusiastic campers!! As usual, we have
some work going on at Camp – this time a renovation of Esty House,
which I’m pretty sure will be well-appreciated by the Agawomen!

        Speaking of another season, the next Agawam summer already
looks great to me! Shortly after Thanksgiving, we were within ten
campers of full enrollment for 2008. It’s great to know that we’ll wel-
come so many old friends back next summer and have the opportunity
to share Agawam with over 30 new boys, too. Not to rush the season,
as I look forward to another summer on Crescent Lake, I also extend
my best wishes to you all for meaningful holidays and a fantastic New
