The weather for the Strawberry Festival, although threatening rain during the day, turned out to be lovely that evening. I believe the park counted 435 people who were in attendance. It is such a great time to visit with folks you don’t ordinarily see. The atmosphere was congenial & cooperative, with everyone helping wherever a hand was needed. All of the figures are not in yet, but I think all three groups raised a good amount of money, that actually gets funneled right back into the community in various ways. Thanks to one & all for your hard work!
Congratulations to Isaac Sheldon on his recent engagement to Taylor Gates from New Hampshire! Also, birthday wishes go out to Dorothy Pingree (6/20) & Michelle Pingree (7/3).
