Uncle Mike Sends Boston Paper

As he does every year!

April 2009

Joe writes below....

"In 1983 and 1984, I ran Boston. The Marathon is always held on Patriots Day, the third Monday in April, which is a state holiday for Massachusetts. When running Boston, I would travel to Milford, Mass to the home of Uncle Mike and Aunt Mary, about seven miles from Hopkington, where the marathon starts."

"In 1985, Uncle Mike, knowing that I enjoy reading all about the Marathon, starting sending me the local Boston papers the day after the event. He has now been doing that for 24 years and I just received the copy for this year. What joy whenever I see this rolled up newpaper in the mail! It brings back great memories! I love you, Uncle Mike!"
