Hello again Mainers! You might remember that I wrote to the newspaper in December requesting that you tell me, through letters and postcards, why you love Maine.

I was so happy that my letter got published in your newspaper — so many people responded to me! It was really fun to look in the mail and see something from Maine every day (and it was almost every day that I got something from your wonderful state).

So many Mainers wrote me personal letters that helped me learn more about Maine. I think now that I will get an A-plus on my report.

I just wanted to thank you all for blessing me with the things you sent. Hopefully I will be able to visit someday!
