The robins are back. My first report from our son, Wayne, who said he and Eugene Schofield saw about 30 robins in small trees on Park Street. A day or so later, my wife, grandson and I watched nearly two dozen of those welcome back birds across the street playing in some small bushes. There must be more in other areas. We hope it is not too cold for them. It was February, I hope they survive.

Eric Nickerson of Grafton has passed away. He was very actice in bee keeping, with up to 3,000 hives, Eric was first to pallietize beehives and build an overwintering building in Nova Scotia.
When our church was on a field of four – Waterville, Cambridge, Grafton and Black Rock – Eric was one of the Grafton deacons and I served on the Waterville board. It was rewarding to serve with him. I express my deepest sympathy to his wife, Lynn, and children.
