Hello Andover friends. Welcome to fall, which means Fair time, field hockey and football time.
Mountain Valley High School in Rumford is having a home football game tomorrow, Friday night, when they will be hosting Wells. There will be a Homecoming Parade beforehand at 5 p.m. On Saturday, the Telstar Rebels' field hockey team will play Mountain Valley at Hosmer Field. Lots of excitement, with local athletes from Andover, Rumford and Bethel! It sounds like the weather is going to be great too.
Thanks to Carol Emery,of the River Valley Healthy Communities for organizing the care of the beautiful flowers on the triangle by the Andover Post Office. Teen planters were Elek Pew, Morgan Lee, Izaak Mills, Jamie Stevens and James Carter. All of the flowers were donated by Foxgloves and Daisies of Andover. The fertilizer was donated by Pete's Hardware, also of Andover. What a pretty sight through the summer!
Sympathy is extended to the family of Marc Chartier of East Andover, who passed away on Saturday. His parents, Roland and Pauline, and his sister, Joan Zitoli, also live in town. Funeral services will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday evening at Meader and Sons in Rumford.
