Helen Prescott enjoyed teaching secondary mathematics in Montreal and in Connecticut for many years after earning a BA in Russian from Bryn Mawr and an MALS from Wesleyan specializing in Math. She and Blake, her husband for nearly sixty years (July 2016), and a retired physician, moved to Newfane in 2001. In the course of these years, we welcomed four daughters, two sons-in-law, and four grandsons, all of whom we treasure. Two special favorites in her list of passions are skiing and gardening, and she has always been an avid reader.

Steve Squires has lived in Newfane since 1999, successfully transitioning from a long career in software development to a new life somewhere between retired and homesteading. Visible roles in the community include singing in a church choir and local choral groups, working or speaking as a UVM Extension Master Gardener volunteer, and as a working member at the Brattleboro Food Coop. Steve has served several terms on his church board, holding positions including treasurer and board president. He joined the library board in 2012. Steve is happily married to Kathy Squires, whose volunteer activities eclipse his by a wide margin.
