3. A nice couple, named Charles & Dorothy Paquette sent me a nice e-mail that I would like to share with all of you. Please help them if you can. Their e-mail address is Here's the e-mail that they sent to me:

Hello Mike;

We are Charles and Dorothy Paquette, originally from Hampden County (I say this as we have lived in Springfield, Agawam, Feeding Hills, Longmeadow, Palmer, Westfield, Wilbraham and West Springfield), and now living in Venice, Florida.

We have a great-granddaughter in the third grade living in North Dakota.  Her dad lived in the Boston area as a boy and is a great Patriots fan.  Our problem is that Abbigail has a class project as "Flat Honeybun" which she has sent to us to send information of our area to her school.  Her request is for us to forward "Flat Honeybun" to Massachusetts to the Patriots so that they would send information, etc., regarding the team to her class.  As we do not know where to send this, we checked the Patriot's website, and saw a fan club in our former area.

If you would help us out, we will forward "Flat Honeybun" to you.  We shall enclose a stamped self-addressed envelope for you to forward to my sister in Maine.

We have seven great-grandchildren in Minot, North Dakota and the oldest plays football in middle school.  Sorry to say the team does not do too well but he loves the game and they have great team spirit.

Hopefully, you will answer this e-mail and help us out or give us a direction in which to go.

Thank you,

Dorothy Paquette
