To the Editor;

            I write to Thank You for the gift that is Marilou Newell’s writing.  Her articles about “The Mattapoisett Life” are always so beautifully written and so much fun to read!  Although I’m loathe to admit I, too, am of a ‘certain age’; her stories deeply resonate and take me back to a time that seems so much simpler.  I’m tempted to cut-out each one and tape it to the fridge and/or send it to my sister, who would undoubtedly chuckle right along with me.

            So, to summarize, let us raise a glass of wine (or your preferred adult beverage) to Marilou and hope that her creative juices, memories and stories keep on flowing.  Here’s to you, Marilou!!
