East Bethel June 17
The elections are behind us now with Bethel having had a great voter turnout. The World Cup is off to a great start and am sure the local soccer fans were pleased with our US Team holding Britain 1:1.
Lynn Zimmerman called me to tell us about the amazing trip she, Roger and their daughter, Heather, shared. They just recently returned from an exciting three weeks in Peru. There they hiked the Inca Trail, visited Macu Picchu— The Lost City of the Incas. They explored the Manu Djungle were they encountered various monkey species, cayman, and yes even a jaguar. Also on their to-see list was Lake Titicaca which is at an elevation of 12 500 feet above sea level thus making it the highest, commercial navigable lake in the world. We are looking forward to seeing some of the pictures of this adventure.
Our Cherri Crockette sure is an amzing lady! Last Saturday she participated in Auburn's YMCA Fit Fest 5K run. Again, she outdid herself with the official time of 29.37! We are proud of you, Cherri!
Just a few days ago Betty Ann Coolidge-Svach had a wonderful idea and started a site on Facebook called East Bethel Recipe Share. Hope many of you will check it out and become a fan.
Thank you for the many answers to the Trivia. All were correct. The first settler on the Gore was Jonathan T. Clifford. On April 12, 1816, he bought part of Lot #9. Look for the new Trivia question in next week’s Citizen.
I am still waiting to hear about our graduates and honor students so we may properly congratulate them all.
