Fall 2019: From Our Readers

“Takes Me Back” 

I just finished the most recent WM and it was wonderful, as usual. 

I came to Wabash from Eastern Pennsylvania back in 1963, and I still live here, so getting back to Crawfordsville is difficult. So I look forward to spending time with Wabash each and every issue I receive. The magazine always takes me back. It’s a warm feeling.

Second Acts Times Two 

The Spring/Summer issue of WM [Second Acts] was, as usual, very well written and generated emotions ranging from laughter to inspiration. 

I’ve had two second acts, so far. First, after graduating from Wabash with a math major, I earned a graduate degree in computer science but ended up spending most of my career in sales, sales management, and sales training. My more recent second act came after I retired and moved into a continuing care retirement community. In addition to the many activities available, I became a clown, and several of us go to the nursing care facility weekly to entertain the people there who otherwise have little to make them smile. Clowning is very rewarding and unlike anything I’ve done before.

My family and I wanted to send a quick thank-you for the beautiful article and photos in WM Spring/Summer 2019 about Mercantile 37. It was by far the most heartfelt piece written about us so far. We are grateful for the opportunity to share our story, and for the ability of you and your staff to tell it in words and pictures.
