The group from Maine included Fred and Nanci Temple, of Richmond; Bruce and Margaret Carter, of Ellsworth, Kathleen and Larry Hillman, of Fairfield; Milton Sinclair, of New Sharon; Bob Brown and Cindy Fairfield, of Newport, Dave and Ellie Mulcahey, of Monmouth; and Charlotte Sinclair, of New Sharon.
