Special addition for new office

During the 10 a.m. service on Nov. 30. Mark and Margaret Braun were presented a pair of special gifts from the church, thanks to the artistic work of Betty-Jane Shreve and Nancy Johnson.

Mark’s medical office on Route 1 in Scarborough was one of 18 businesses destroyed during a September fire. Mark is now back in business in a new office in Building C South at 306 Route 1, still in Scarborough.


Betty-Jane presented Mark an appropriate gift for the office, a trash can she crafted, displaying the large image of the famous Norman Rockwell painting “Before the Shot,” which appeared on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post in October, 1958.


During much of the almost three months since the fire, Margaret has been the behind-the-scenes hero to get the new office up and running. For those unsung efforts, Betty-Jane presented Margaret with a large medallion with the inscription, “Don’t Be Fooled . . . MARGARET Did It!!”


As legendary mountaineer Sir Edmund Hillary said, “People do not decide to be extraordinary. They decide to accomplish extraordinary things.”

Thank you, Margaret.
