I think of Maine as being so cold, but then, I have never been there. Apparently Ogunquit Beach is a popular beach resort, especially during the hot, humid summers.

|By 1939, George W Tibbetts and secretary Rosa Shorey were still going strong in the group. A chicken dinner and cake sounds nice!|
The following year May Jarvis had her work on display for the association, which met back at Ogunquit Beach:
