She gave a little talk about her high school at the banquet. Class of '29 Peg Corbin recently talked with Genevieve Hook, who lives in her family residence in Burlington. After a colder and snowier winter than in the past few years, we here in the Mohawk Valley of New York State are looking forward to spring. I hope it will be a bright and happy one for all of you.
Each pursued a career in secondary education and continues to teach in their respective high schools. Class of '34 Happy New Year to my fellow classmates!
It is time to write another class column, and this time I have several news items. Thanks to those who sent them. Our class president, Chet Eaton, wrote that he has recently sold his Rutland home, and he now lives in an independent care unit elsewhere in Rutland.
He has recovered from his recent health problems and is resuming a more normal life. Chet reported that he is very happy with his choice.
Geneva Wilcox reported that she still lives in Mount Dora. She lives a quiet life but still drives her own car around and maintains her home by herself.
This news came in a letter from her daughter. She lives in a high rise and loves the view from her window. Ellen was looking forward to attending the luncheon at the Longboat Key Club when she wrote. As for news from the Hauke family, no more great grandchildren since last June.

Because we have been blessed with a loving, caring family, I was able to have a happy holiday season. I traveled to Florida for several weeks in mid-January, and I visited our son and his wife in Jensen Dating and then our daughter, Margaret, and her husband in Naples, as well as friends in St. Corbin before heading back to Vermont.

He was married again on December 23 to Nancy Harlan. Hope to hear from more of you. She was interviewed by the New Haven Historical Society for an oral history tape of her first teaching experience at Beeman Academy. A reunion of her second school, Proctor High School, included her reminiscences by letter. Finally, a day-long, widely-attended reunion at Burlington High School provided an opportunity for her to share her memories of the longest and most-recent period of her career in education.
She has been pleasantly overwhelmed by the response she has received in the wake of these events. Lyrace wrote from her new home in Bristol, Vt. Burial with full military honors was at Arlington Cemetery.
Karie met her husband when he came to Fort Ethan Allen after graduating from West Point while her father was stationed there. They both loved Vermont, and she reminded us that they attended our 50th reunion as well as the UVM Bicentennial. We extend our sympathy to Karie on the loss of her husband.

Bud was a trustee of the University of Vermont as well as several area schools.

For the current academic year, 14 students were awarded scholarships. I have received numerous letters from students who have expressed their appreciation for the financial assistance. Lucien Paquette and his wife, Loretta, reported an impressive UVM family roster, a record for our class.
Eight of their 12 children have graduated from UVM. They have 32 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Lucien has enjoyed a rewarding career with the Vermont Extension Service. His nearly six years as county agent for Grand Isle were followed by 36 years as county agent for Addison.
Inhe initiated the county Farm and Home Field Day. This event has become an institution in Addison County. George Hart delightfully comments that he is still hunting, fishing, and golfing. He is to be found in the Green Mountains in the summer and Florida in the winter. Lois Redding Grace wrote that she has moved to a wonderful retirement home.
