Summer 2016 Publisher's Note

Maine is a great place to be “In the Good Old Summertime”.

To add some summer flavor, we have two yummy blueberry recipes waiting for you in our Food for Thought column. In regard to our beautiful cover, I am sure you agree that L.L.Bean and blueberries are both fine examples of why so many of us love Maine.

Growing up in Maine, we knew that it was special when it came from L.L.Bean. It was always a treat to receive a gift of L.L.Bean boots or a chamois or flannel shirt, on a birthday or at Christmas. Now, years later, I can confirm that it was always a dependable premium quality product. I am sure that each of you have your own connection with L.L.Bean, yet you may not have known about Leon Gorman. Please read the Featured Contributor section and following that the great tribute article “Leon A. Gorman, A Look at the Life and Legacy of a Maine Legend”, by Paulette Oboyski.

At MAINE SENIORS Magazine we want to thank you… our “Senior Partners”. Our seniors are the volunteers and philanthropists who ensure a high quality of life with a community feel, which benefits all of us in Maine.

Please enjoy this copy of the magazine and have a “Good Old Summertime”.
