Well, the weather cooperated nicely for the events at the Historic site this weekend. It seemed like quite a crowd, although I was only in the vicinity of the Emergency Services chicken BBQ & we were quite busy! It is always fun to visit with local folks who come out to enjoy the plentiful lunch & also to meet people from many other places.
Congratulations to Tara Metcalf on receiving the Tyson Ladies Aid scholarship for WUHS this year. It is always nice to have a local student receive it. Amanda Bortlein won the one for BRHS.
Missed some June birthdays: Sue Poirier on 6/4, Sally Nadeau on 6/9 & soon to happen, Georgiana Whalen on 6/26. I can’t recall the exact date, but Angela Miccio’s is near the middle of June. Also, is it 60 years of marriage for Bill & Genie Calkins on 6/14? Congratulations!
Wanted to thank Melissa for hosting a joint birthday party for Tom & me on Sunday. Great food & a wonderful time with family & friends – it doesn’t get any better than that!
At our Church Council Meeting on Sunday, we discussed an anniversary event to mark a year & the tremendous progress since “Irene”. So, on Sunday, 8/26, we would like to gather at the church to remember the many blessings that came during that time. We are hoping that many of our Emergency Services folks will join us, but there are a multitude of thanks to be given to so many people. The reach out & helping hands throughout our area were truly amazing. We are thinking about a potluck lunch as well at noon – hopefully spreading out onto the church lawn. Please mark your calendars for We’ve Come A Long Way, Baby – Let’s Give Thanks.
