Summering on the Maine Coast - for 67 Years
07/08/2013   Reported By: Keith Shortall

If you grew up in Maine, you probably referred to the seasonal visitors who arrived by the 4th of July as "summer people." Betty Jones, 96, of Worcester, Mass., has achieved elite status as a summer person, having come to Maine every year since the end of World War II. Keith Shortall caught up with her recently over a jigsaw puzzle at her beloved Linekin Bay Resort in Boothbay Harbor.
