Sail Mending: Many sail parties are planned this month in preparation for the opening race in May. Assembled on the boathouse Barton Boat club skippers, gathered to mend the sail of a fellow member, are (left to right) Harry P. Hawkins, Commodore Brian McCabe, Dean Willard Olson, Robert Leary and Dr. William Grabb, racing chairman, and his son David. Rhodes Bantams and Snipes are the two main classes of boats on Barton Pond. The Snipe has 117 square feet of sail in the main and overlapping jib and the Rhodes Bantam has 125 square feet of sail. That's a lot mending, men!

Scenic View At Breakfast - Dr. and Mrs. William C. Grabb and their family start each day in this cheerful breakfast room which overlooks Barton Pond, the center of family activities winter and summer. Stone walls are an attractive feature of the room and the panorama of windows afford Mrs. Grabb the necessary sunlight for her plants. At the left is an Early American hutch and buffet. Furnishings in the rest of the home, 325 BartonShore Drive, are Contemporary and are highlighted by the couples' fine collection of paintings by contemporary artists, featuring those from this area.
