pointed me to a Rutland Herald article about our former class president, Pete
Webster. Pete was recently selected to be the town manager of Norwich, VT
which will bring him closer to Hanover. He received rave reviews from his
former employee, the town of Dorset, where he was also town manager.
Dorset Select Board Vice-Chairwoman Margery Freed
said " Pete is
a consensus builder and he came along when that skill was in definite need in
the town. The town was in some turmoil and I think he helped to heal some
of the hurts and situations
that had developed." Sounds like we could use Pete’s help in Washington.

great deal of time in Hanover since she has been going out with resident Ben
Schore for the past five years. Ben is on The Hood Art Museum board and also
regularly attends events at The Hop. She said that the number of cultural
offerings in Hanover it is amazing - beside the Dartmouth Film Society, The
Hop has several outstanding performances each week. The Hood is a
nationally recognized college art museum, with rotating exhibits in addition
to its permanent collection. She never thought she would be back in Hanover
and surrounded by such excellent cultural offerings.
was driving out of Hanover after the Class Officer’s Weekend when he
the world famous "Polka Dot Diner" in White River Junction for breakfast and
noticed a sign prominently displayed on the outside----a "For Sale" sign.
He learned that the lady who has been running it for decades was retiring,
and "The Dot" is being sold as a going concern!! For those of you looking
for a new opportunity, and fed up with the state of the US and global
economy----here's your chance. Not many places on earth you can still get
two eggs, bacon, toast, coffee, etc. for $3.85.

of their college years on what was the only student-run commercial radio
station in the U-S. John also visited AD, which was little changed except
that the gutter and jukebox are gone and that the offensive basement
cartoons have been replaced by graffiti that serves the same purpose.
Keep the news coming.
