East Bethel July 8
Happy Belated Birthday, America! It sure was great weather for all the celebrations and fireworks. Please, do let me know how you all spent your Holiday Weekend.
The whole East Coast is going through quite the heatwave. In Arizona, for example, they always say, “ .. but it’s dry heat” so, in trying to use our mind’s power of suggestion, shouldn’t we say, "” ... but at least it’s damp heat.”?
Go ahead and laugh! It must be the heat and humidity getting to me. It also is one of those times when I consider myself lucky to live in Bethel. This kind of weather is even worse in a city, especially as their air quality is worse to begin with.
Nancy let me know that on July 9 the Alder River Grange will have their next meeting at the Hall. As usual there will be a Potluck Supper at 6:30 p.m. and the meeting will start at 7:30 p.m.
Now on to the Trivia question: “When and how did David Adamson die?” I received only one answer this time. Thank you Charlie Newell for your correct answer. David Adamson died in 1891 of a broken neck when he fell off a load of hay while helping on the N.F. Swan farm.
Stay cool and enjoy the great weather.
