    Lisa, Peter, Tina, Ellen, Carleen.

    Fifteen TOHG members - old and new - ushered in the 2022-23 ski season with lots of fanfare and camaraderie at the AMC Highland Center, located at Crawford Notch, NH. Most skied for the full 3 days, taking advantage of modest amounts of man-made snow on the few groomed trails Bretton Woods had to offer. Some also spent time hiking nature trails near the AMC property.

    The meals were great and there was plenty of time left for puzzles and lively games of ping pong and UNO. Our prayers for snow were finally answered, albeit on the day we had to travel back! All managed to arrive back safely and looking forward to the next ski adventure.

    Eight members of the group attended the Merrimack Repertory Theater to see the Christmas Classic, Scrooge.  

    After our encounter with the Christmas ghosts, we dined at a local Thai restaurant.

    Ninety members attended our favorite dress-up holiday brunch at the stunning Pleasant Valley Country Club. In the cheerful atmosphere, we enjoyed good food with our friends, met new ones, and shared stories about events, trips, and plans for the New Year. We also appreciated the attendance of one of our founding members, Joan Stafford.

    Special thanks to Mary Weinert for contributing beautiful table centerpieces. These all found homes with our members.

    While organizers and volunteers make our events possible, participating members make them memorable. Thank you all.

    Twelve members joined for 4.3 miles of a pretty forest hike on quiet trails. The hike included the Audubon Society Sanctuary and the Trustees of Reservations land where the former Sharon Sanatorium for Pulmonary Diseases operated. Only three of the five original buildings remain standing.
    After the hike, members sat at the picnic tables to socialize and share snacks. Once again, Stephanie delighted the group with her delicious oatmeal, white chocolate chip, and cranberry cookies.

    The South Mystery group enjoyed a nice get together with 11 members who attended. The weather was great for a walk, with blue skies and cool temperature. We gathered at Big Bear Hole Pond at Massasoit State Park for a brief talk about the history of the park followed by a walk past the location of the old factory that over the years served as a cotton mill, a grist mill, and a manufacturing facility for board boxes.  We continued along one side of Middle Pond and walked to Lake Rico for a view of that beautiful lake. After the walk we were ready for lunch and adjourned to the Stoneforge Tavern for food and socialization.

    The North Mystery Group enjoyed a very interesting tour at a museum in New Hampshire that is privately owned by a friend of Carole B's family who started the remarkable collection as a hobby. There were three barns filled with antique trucks, milk trucks, tractors, and signs galore, all in pristine condition. Memories flooded back for all of us as we viewed display cases filled with candy, gum, and a wide variety of nostalgic memorabilia from days gone by.

    The weather on November 4 was spectacular for a walk around Gates Pond in Berlin, MA. It was also a great place for folks who walk at different paces. We followed the outdoor activity with lunch on the patio at the 110 Grill at Highland Commons, just around the corner from the new L.L.Bean store that was having its grand opening that day! Needless to say, we all enjoyed being outside in early November!

    October 22 was a beautiful fall day on which 6 of us went to the Addison Gallery of American Art on the campus of Phillips Academy in Andover. We viewed the Scottish born photojournalist Harry Benson’s black and white four stories from the 1960’s era: Building of the Berlin Wall; The Beatles First American Tour;The James Meredith March Against Fear; and, The assassination of Robert Kennedy. All of which captured defining moments of this tumultuous period in history. Afterwards we walked the beautiful trails behind the gallery followed by lunch at The Bartlett Andover.  We all agreed the day was fun and it was so nice to get together.

    After the hike we sat at the picnic tables to socialize and share snacks including delicious oatmeal white chocolate chip and cranberry cookies baked by Stephanie.
