Friends and Neighbors


Ben Freeman weds Jennifer Anderson

Marjie Findlay and Geoff Freeman, Rockland Road, belatedly announce the marriage of Ben Freeman to Jennifer Anderson, daughter of Steve and Debbie Anderson of Melrose, Massachusetts. Ben and Jennie Freeman are home for the summer after spending their first year of marriage teaching at The Island School. The Island School is a semester program for high school sophomores and juniors based on the island of Eleuthera, Bahamas. The school has a rigorous experiential academic program with emphasis on marine sciences, community and environment. Ben, a Colby College graduate and National Outdoor Leadership School instructor, is an associate director at the school and the head of the science and outdoor education departments. This last year Jennie, a graduate of Colby College and Lesley College (M.Ed), was the head of the school's Community Outreach program. This coming year at the request of the Bahamian Ministry of Education, Jennie is opening a new independent Bahamian middle school and resource center in the local settlement. She is very thankful to those who have collected books for the new school and resource center, and is desperately searching for donations of computers, globes and other academic supplies to get the project off the ground. The couple will be returning to Eleuthera in a few weeks to prepare for the coming year.
