Condolences to the families of MaryAnne Martin and Kendall Hadley. Thoughts and prayers are going out to each family member on the loss of their loved ones.
The Woodstock monument committee is searching for Veterans from South Woodstock to be listed on the new monument addition. Any Veteran that served (in peace or war ) from 1815 to present and lived in (or is buried in) Woodstock is eligible. We would like to add names of South Woodstock Veterans to those who are already on the monument. There are forms available at the town office to fill out and return with copies of honorable discharge papers or other proof of honorable service.
So loving those cool nights and warm days, makes for a restful sleep at night and the warm sun during the day as it warms up the house.

Enjoyed some time with our friends Evelyn and Fred one night last week.
The winter birds are slowly getting here; I have had several Juncos, a Cardinal, lots and lots of Blue Jays, Purple Finches – oh, and by the way there have been over 30 Robins still feeding in the back yard. I would have thought they would have been headed south by now.
