Ocean Point Column
By Maryellen Bertrand
I don’t have a lot of news to report this week although I did hear from some Ocean Pointers regarding their Thanksgiving holiday which I’m happy to share with you.
Liz and Dick Colten spent Thanksgiving with the Dunn Family and Liz describes the weather at the Point as beautiful.
Gail Ross travelled to her niece Susan Anderson’s home in Waseca, Minnesota where her brother Chris joined her. In addition to Gail and Chris, her nephew Peter his wife Jess and son Liam and Susan’s husband Luke and his family were there as well.
Jean and John Webster and Jean’s sister Roni spent the holiday in Dallas Texas with Jean and John’s son Stephen, his wife Teresa and their daughter Nicole. Jean, John, Roni and Steven attended the Dallas Stars/Calgary Flames hockey game one night and sat in the Mary Kay box. John reports that he witnessed his first hat trick live. They also attended the Main Street theatre and had front row seats thanks to their daughter in law Teresa, who is an administrator for the theatre.
The day after Thanksgiving found many Ocean Pointers attending our dear friend and neighbor Bob Marden’s Memorial Service. The outpouring of family and friends gathered at his Alma Mater, Colby College was a fitting tribute to a beloved Ocean Pointer; the family is planning a memorial at Ocean Point this summer.
Thank you to Rusty Court for the Thanksgiving photo and the beautiful sunset photo taken on December 1, a special day for Dianne Eakin her twin brother Denny and myself as we all share the same birthday!
Enjoy your holiday shopping and have a great week!
