It is official! I received word from Southern Connecticut State University this week that I have completed all the requirements for the Master of Library Science degree in Information and Library Science! The diploma will be mailed in August!
At l-l-l-l-o-o-o-o-n-n-n-n-n-g-g-g-g-g-g last, I have completed the goal I set for myself a number of years ago. It has taken a lot of blood, sweat and tears, perseverance and plain old stubbornness to reach this momentous milestone in my life.
For those who are eager to ask that burning question: What are your plans now?, I have only one response: I intend to bask, revel, glory, enjoy, wallow, appreciate, treasure, relish, delight, and savor the sheer thrill and excitement of this moment and this accomplishment. It has taken me 15 years to get to this point, so I think I should be able to take the next 15 years to really appreciate and enjoy reaching this point in my life.
So, if you will excuse me, I have some major relaxing and life-enjoying to do now!

To the Centennial Committee, the numerous volunteers and the residents of Alix and area...a great BIG thank you and pat on the back.
The Centennial weekend was a resounding success and you are all to be commended on hosting a wonderful party.
I heard many compliments throughout the weekend and everyone who participated thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It was great to see so many people return to Alix for this special celebration. It was also amusing to see different people express their surprise and shock that former classmates actually made the effort to attend!
The weather was perfect and each of the various venues were decorated in fine fashion. The historic walking tour was also a hit with the visitors. One couple I was talking to were so impressed that they walked it twice! The community looked its best thanks to all of you.
The parade also elicited a number of positive comments. It was a delight to see so many participate in the parade itself and so many watching.
I don’t believe I have ever seen so many people in one building in Alix as I saw at the BBQ. If you were fortunate enough to attend the evening meal and entertainment, I’m sure you’ll agree with me it was well worth it! Firehall Catering outdid themselves with the meal and the Popovichs entertained to an appreciative crowd...even adding a surprise or two into the program.
All in all, it was a great time and you have a community that you can be proud of.
Here’s to another 100 years!
