Students of Knox Trail and David Prouty High were captivated by Mr. D's weather-telling toe which proved to be more accurate in predicting the weather than Harvey Leonard and Danielle Niles combined.
We all miss Mr. D daily and are filled with memories of his incredible ability to educate us all and become a friend of anyone he has encountered.
Children's Book author Todd Civin has joined with DPHS alum Carter Bemis and illustrator Erika Civin-Dodge to create this whimsical story of the morning Carter woke up having inherited Mr. D's toe. The book will be used as a fundraiser to assist those needing assistance with fees needed to play youth sports in Spencer/East Brookfield. This was a pet-peeve of Phil's and we hope we can relieve the burden of those who may need a helping hand.
With illustrations by Todd's daughter, Erika Civin-Dodge, the book will be released on Mr. Delongchamp's birthday June 3 and we will ship soon after. Please support this worthwhile project and allow Mr. D's legacy to live on.
