Doris Jones Fafunwa, who lives in Nigeria, wrote that life in Lagos might
be called exhilarating, exasperating, and sometimes exhausting. The political
scene is less than inspiring, and inflation seems to have increased the
poverty level. Nevertheless, Doris and her husband have not given up hope.
The American Womens Club has given out substantial amounts of scholarships
for deserving women students in Nigerian universities. Although the level
of violence is extraordinary, some groups are working hard at training
in conflict resolution in communities in different parts of the country.
Doris is well again after a rather serious case of cerebral malaria. She
is again able to work on the project for street children. They have a
dormitory for 22 boys and a dining/multi-purpose hall. The boys, who are
all either in school or doing apprenticeships, have been working on clearing
the elephant grass, which grows up to six feet tall. The hope is that
these boys may become productive citizens. The brother of Aubrey Pulling
stopped to visit my husband, Charles, and told him of Aubreys death
about a year ago. At UVM, he had received a degree in agriculture and
was employed as a sales and service representative for New England Milk
Producers Association and later West Agro Chemical Company. For several
years, he was self-employed as an animal feed distributor and for Clini-Tech
Laboratories. Aubrey was a U.S. Navy veteran of World War II. Charles
Carlton has been busy in his retirement. He sent the following update:
He has done translations of Virgiliu Florea on Romanian and British folklorists;
translated an essay on the late Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceaucescu; wrote
an article entitled Everything You Wanted to Know about the Fifth
Romance Language but Forgot to Ask, which has been accepted for
publication; wrote a review article for Proceedings of the Fifth Meeting
for the Romanian Academy of Scientists, gave an illustrated talk about
Romania the Beautiful at the library in Fairport, N.Y., and
is listed in Whos Who in America for the 19th year in a row.

twice a year was not enough. (Our daughter, Allison Brown Carr, is our

house with a lawn that adjoins our daughter Kym Brown Kempers property
so that her children can open a gate and come to Grandma and Granddads.
Even though Vermont will always be home to us, we took the attitude that
this would be a wonderful opportunity to explore Lewis and Clark Territory.
We have biked along the Snake River, been to Sun Valley for biking and
a visit to an art festival. Weve also taken two trips to Montana,
one to visit our two grandsons and daughter Deanna Brown Kempf 88
