Peeking through the astronaut's helmets (center) are Judy T and Cindy B. Traveling to Concord, NH on a rainy Wednesday, the north group visited the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center - a science museum dedicated to Christa McAuliffe, the Concord high school social studies teacher selected by NASA to be the first Teacher in Space, and Alan Shepard, the Derry native and Navy test pilot who was the first American in space. The center’s programs explore astronomy, aviation, earth and space science. The day we went we attended two presentations in the Planetarium – “Wildest Weather in the Universe” and “Black Holes”. Both were very interesting, informative and dazzling to see projected on the dome over our heads. Following our outing, we enjoyed a tasty lunch at a local restaurant. Judy T

    Sunday April 22nd nineteen members of the gang got together for a bike ride on the Derry/Windham Rail Trail. The morning started out a little cool but a bright sun warmed up the day as we rode. The trail has now been extended into Salem, NH making the round trip a total of 18 miles. After the ride the group headed over to MaryAnn’s Diner for brunch and witty conversation.

    We had 12 art enthusiasts who strolled from gallery to gallery to enjoy all the varied forms of art. It was a beautiful spring day with warm sunshine and a slight coastal breeze. We had much chatter and laughter with our fellow members. Thank you to all who attended and made this a great event. Jane B

    Peg T’s coordination and execution of the Annual Meeting and luncheon was fantastic – thanks, Peg and assistant, Lorraine T, for all your hard work to make it so enjoyable.
    We said our good-byes to four dynamic folks, two Board members, Linda McH. & John C. and two officers, Chris B., Treasurer and Peg T., Secretary and we welcomed our two Nancys, Nancy C. and Nancy B. as Members of the Board and Cindy B. as Treasurer and Joyce T. as Secretary. Thanks to all of you for joining the Board and for your future input.

    Marco A. brought us all up to date on our fabulous Web site and reported that we are only in the infancy stage of what is still to come . . . on-line credit card payments, and more! Helgard K. and his lovely wife, Marina, hawked T-shirts to which Don T. would have been proud!
    And, finally, to finish the “business at hand,” we amended the Constitution to simplify the voting process going forward. I am certain that the Nominating Committees of the future will be happy not to have to collect, sort and count ballots. Thanks are sent to Polly M. and her team, Ray G. and Linda McH. for this year’s hard work!

    Hub Mystery @ WGBH: On a sunny but crisp Monday, March 26, nine members of the Hub Mystery Group gathered in Brighton at One Guest St, the home studios of WGBH. There we met Scotty Hart, our Docent, who led us on a most fascinating tour of the shining facilities of our PBS stations, both radio and television. Among the highlights was viewing “Jim & Marjorie" during their daily broadcast. Our docent was wonderful, filling us in on the history of the building, and many backstories and details of the facility and the people who work there. The building itself is a beauty to behold, with state of the art technology that is truly impressive. We also got an "up close and personal" view of the broadcast studio of 99.5 FM, WCRB. 

     After the tour, we proceeded to the Stockyard Restaurant for a delicious lunch and more socializing--what fun! Thanks to all who attended and made it special.

    On Tuesday, March 20th, nine members of the Northern Mystery Group met at the Moonlight Meadery in Londonderry, New Hampshire. Our hostess and vice-president of marketing, Denise Van Der Berg, gave us a detailed tour and lecture into the intricacies of mead making, and the bees themselves. One bee makes 1/3 TEASPOON of honey in its six week lifetime, flying up to six miles each way at speeds up to 15 mph! After the tour, we tasted seven different meads of our choosing and went home with a souvenir glass. Left to right: Dawn M., Barbara M., Nancy C., Ann K., Beverly C., Judy T., Anne H., Polly M.

    The first couple of months of the year (because of the ski season), it is usual for the “Gang" to have just lunch and no “mystery". This time, I thought we should try something different. Four of our “Gang” SW members (Skip/Mary C, Marco/Ines A) have joined a sports facility near Foxboro called ForeKicks and are now aficionados of the game “pickleball.” WHAT’S PICKLEBALL ???- This is a game resembling tennis in which players use paddles to hit a perforated plastic ball over a net.

    We set up a surprise for the remaining 10 members of our group to sit on some bleachers at the sports center to watch them play this fascinating game. Marco preceded the game with some basics of how to play and how to keep score. It was a fun time for all of us to watch how proficient they are and how much they enjoy the sport. I am sure that since they were former tennis and Ping-Pong players helped a great deal. After a couple of games we went for a lovely lunch at the Horse and Carriage to talk about our entertainment of the morning. (A few of us are tempted to give it a try).
