In the second issue of New England Memories, Tom Sheehan writes about a special, “lip-smacking” Saturday collecting quahogs on Nahant Beach in Saugus, Massachusetts. We hope his story brings back some of your own memories of a day at the beach to warm you during this cold, New England winter. Cynthia Close, Stephanie Minteer, and Becky Dennison Sakellariou also share their wonderful stories in prose and poetry in this issue. Sandra DeSantis provides striking images of our New England history in her photographs from her travels in Massachusetts. Many thanks to all our contributors!
We hope you enjoy the Winter 2016 Issue.
Wishing you the best of memories,

Congratulations on issue 2 and thanks for including some of my work. I loved Stephanie M’s final line, “blow them back home.” The whole picture complete, a favored movie. And Keene has a long-time pull on me via Keene State College and Prof. Francgon Jones and the NH Poetry Society and meetings at his farm in Gilsum. Grand memories for one of the old set.
Thank you, Tom, I’m glad you enjoyed the second issue and the memories it brought back! The third issue is coming out soon!
