The Ladies Aid Association met Friday, Oct. 12, and set up their tentative fall schedule. Friday, Oct. 19, they will travel to Riverside Restaurant, in Colebrook, for their annual “Upton Ladies Aid Appreciation Lunch.” They will meet at Leslie's house at 11:30 and leave from there. The next scheduled event is a Hunters Supper, Saturday, Nov. 10, from 5 p.m. until the food runs out. The following morning, Sunday, Nov. 11, they will offer a hunters' breakfast beginning at 6.
Saturday, Oct. 13, five people traveled from Upton village to Carry Road to replace a section of the roof of the Louise Dickinson Rich “Summer House.” The work was completed with very little daylight to spare. After the tools and equipment were loaded into the pickups, a scrumptious dinner, featuring haddock and Alaskan Salmon was served. Thank you to everyone that donated to or participated in the project and meals.
The Internet has opened up the world, even remote Upton. In the previous two weeks, the Upton House has entertained multiple guests from abroad. They included guests from Italy, Switzerland, and Israel. The guests enjoyed the fall colors and several of them sighted moose and one guest took a good picture of a young bull.
The Maine Municipal Association deemed that the Upton Town Meeting that was held Friday, Oct. 5, was not a legal meeting. A new
meeting date will be set and posted as soon as the selectmen work out the details.
Laurie Brown told me that only 2.2 miles to go and Route 26, from Newry to Upton, will be all repaved. She also noticed that someone had cut the brush away from the UPTON sign, making it more visible. Whether this was to be able to get a better photo or because of civic pride, thanks!
Not less than two moose were shot within a half mile of my house.
Penny feels guilty, thinking that they died because she posted pictures of the moose she saw in our field. The reality is that this area is hunted heavily during moose season and the moose were harvested by hunters that own camps in the area and very likely did not see her pictures or read what I wrote about the moose fighting in our lower field. I do wish that the hunters had not left the viscera so close to the ATV trail.
