The Windham Eagle is happy to introduce and welcome new team member, Gayle Plummer, who fills the newly created position of copy editor. Beginning January 9th, Plummer joined the Eagle team to share her keen sense for correct grammar and spelling, assisting the newspaper with its ever evolving goal to improve upon its quality.
Plummer, once a legal administrative assistant, worked over ten years report writing for a forensic investigator. She then moved on to the medical field where she was an assistant to a hospital vice president, spending a majority of her time updating important policies and procedures. In both of these work settings, Plummer gained her love and experience for the error free and grammatically correct sentence.
After living in Harrison for 30 years, Plummer and her husband moved to Raymond twelve years ago, to a home they built, based upon a sketch she and her husband drew on a napkin over 30 years ago. Her home is one of her favorite places to relax. That, and Campobello Island. “I have been going there for years.” Plummer said.
When Plummer is not perfecting the written word, you can find her knitting socks, afghans, scarves and mittens. “Knitting is my therapy,” Plummer stated.
Gardening is also a joy of hers. “I never met a flower I didn’t love,” she began. “Perennials, annuals, invasive – I don’t care, I love them all! The only exception to that is the everlasting, in-your-face weed. I typically have to have one of everything each nursery has to offer.”
Besides her husband John, Plummer has a daughter, a son and four grandsons.
Please join The Windham Eagle in welcoming our newest team member.
