I care for our beautiful farmhouse and gardens and am a nonprofit strategic management consultant after 16 years managing and producing events at an historic Victorian Opera House. Craig is the newly retired Vice President of a University in Bangor, Maine and now teaches part-time. In my spare time I love beach and dog walks, gardening, seeing friends, reading on our deck, traveling (hopefully now?!?!), visiting with our adult children and their spouses and attending theatre/sports/concerts. Craig loves to spend time at our island camp on Moosehead Lake - which allows for our non-simultaneous swaps!!
