I do hope everyone enjoyed their Labor Day weekend. Let me know, please, what you all did and about the fun you had. I thought it would have been impolite to call and possibly interrupt gatherings happening. It will be nice to hear all about it in the course of this week. We sure did have great weather as it was neither too hot nor too cold.
I spent my weekend in part working and spending time with friends and family. It was quite nice and enjoyable. I especially want to thank John and Ryan Coolidge for taking my grandson, Ben, target practicing to help him get ready for his first-ever season of hunting with you.
Alder River Grange will have a regular meeting on Sept. 10 with a potluck supper at 6:30 p.m. and the meeting at 7:30 p.m. at the Hall.

Howard Fales of West Redding, Conn., visited with George Haines, Nancy Mercer and Peter Haines at the home of Peter Haines on Aug. 22.
Aline Dupont did let me know that she went to visit her Dad at the Berlin Hospital and that it was a real nice visit. We are all thinking of you, Aline.
The suggested "Mock Elections" for East Bethel are shaping up quite nicely. So be sure to cast your votes still and read the results next week. Just call me at 824-3220 or e-mail email@example.com. Join the fun and just "do it."
Have a great week.
