7/4/2013 Alan Potter seriously hurt
I have some sad news to pass on concerning one of our GHS alumni and classmate Alan Potter class of ’65. Alan recently passed out hitting his neck and injuring his spina
. . .
Out of high school, I married Harland Dunham and lived in Manchester, N.H. for 23 years.
We were divorced in 1989.
I returned to school and became a nurse. I
worked as a an administrator at Grafton County Complex and then as a nurse for a traumatic brain injury facility in Lyme.
I retired after 8 years of nursing after becoming ill with a latex allergy and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.
I then found my love, journalism.
I worked for a newspaper in the Sunapee area.
I was living in Sunapee when my dad died in 2001 and my mother had a double-bypass.
I returned to Groveton to be near my mom and assist her in the latter years of her life. She still lives on Lancaster Road.
In actuality, I returned kicking and screaming back to this small town thinking although I needed to be here to support my mother that I would be bored to death.
But just the opposite happened. I found old friends and made new ones, and have renewed my connection to this beautiful land that is in, and surrounds Groveton.
I worked for The Courier in Littleton, and then for Caledonian-Record in St. Johnsbury when I first returned.
I am now working part-time as a photo-journalist for a local newspaper in Colebrook, the Colebrook Chronicle.
I have four sons and 15 grandchildren, all who live within a 3 hours drive. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints in Colebrook.
After returning home, I helped form the Groveton Regional Economic Action Team (GREAT), a non-profit organization which is presently working on a business park for the town and providing four large festivals a year. I was president for a year and a half and am now assisting as a member.
Groveton is at a cross-roads right now. The paper mills closed two years ago and with those employers gone, area residents are evaluating their lives, making chances, and trying to find a way to survive. But the people here are strong. Perhaps it is because of the harsh way of life for 150 years or the harsh winters that creates individuals with spunk, but whatever it is, it is a good thing.
We need everyone's help! Come to this year's reunion and bring some ideas--think out of the box--renew old friendships-enjoy the beauty of the land-and honor your birth place.
