The month of June has turned out to be a very busy month for us. Things have been happening and we still have Friends and Family Day coming up this Saturday, June 22.
My brother, Steve McLain, has finally got all of his garden planted. He knows that I enjoy flowers so he e-mailed a couple of pictures of the rose bush that he has in the front yard and some of the iris that have blossomed. Over the years, the rose has gone from more of a red color to lighter color of pink.
Lise McLain attended the Senior Club dinner that was held at the Legion Hall this past week.
Steve and Lise McLain are very proud of their granddaughter, Marina McLain, who recently graduated from high school in Stavanger, Norway. Because of the distance, they were unable to attend, but sent best wishes to her, and good luck in her college experience this fall. They will be happy to have the family back in the United States and closer to Maine.
Happy Birthday wishes for the month of June go out to my brother, Steve McLain, and a couple of friends, Diane Bean and Louann Bell, also.
The only new bird to report this week is a Myrtle Warbler. He lit on the porch railing just long enough for us to be able to identify him.
Since Friends and Family Day is on June 22, and the Rotary Club yard sale/auction is on June 29, I will be free to go to the yard sale this year.
As I mentioned, we have been busy so far this month. On Friday, June 14, I officially retired from my job at SAD 44 Adult and Continuing Education after 24 years. I was hoping to slip quietly away, but Jeanie Waite decided that there should be a small lunch with a few people from work and members of Western Mountains Senior College. By the time lunch was over, those few people numbered a little more than 25 people.
Last Sunday Tim came down to the house in the afternoon to give Hugh a hand with moving some items for the Gilead Historical Society. Sidney had just been to the hairdresser to get her hair done for her dance recital. That evening we attended Sidney’s dance recital in Berlin, N.H. “Masquerade” was presented by the Emmanuel School of Dance. The students ranged from little beginners to the more advanced older students. They all did a wonderful job.

Don’t forget the Public Crockpot Potluck Lunch at 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 22, at the Town Hall. Hugh “Cubby” Swan will be the guest speaker at 1 p.m. and he will discuss his research on hobos in the early railroad era. The historic buildings will be open, too.
