I would like to start this column with a big thank you to all who have been praying, sending cards or visiting me while in the hospital and rehab. Also, a bigger thank you to grandson Ray Crockett and his cousin, Grayson Wakefield, for helping him build my ramp so I could get home. It worked great. It's good to be home again, but I had very good care and therapy at Norway Rehab.

The Historical Society Museum has excellent exhibits and research materials. The society hopes to begin meeting again in March. Do join them. Bryant Pond is an example of largely 19th century architecture. It has very fine public buildings in the village and a few mansions around the lake. Surrounding natural beauty is attractive to a fault. Look around sometime.
Vice president and chairman of the board, Annella Burnham, has raised funds to pay for a brick honoring the Historical Society near the telephone sculpture on the town common. Everyone who knows Annella is aware of her great dedication to the society. Thanks, Annella.
