Thanks to the folks who have faithfully reported and illustrated the various projects underway at Sheepscot in the past year. They have been a lifeline for those us from away. They have been so appreciated. Here's hoping that 2021 will see the end of this terrible time and allow us all to meet again at Sheepscot! Happy New Year, everyone!
