Thanksgiving 2012 is just about a matter of history. We hope everyone has a great meal and for those who use the time for hunting, good luck.
Saturday, Nov. 24 is the day for the Rumford Grange 115 to have their craft fair and food sale. The event begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 2 p.m. Area crafters will have their items available for sale. There will be food items to be purchased. At noon a lunch consisting of a choice of corn chowder, sandwiches, hamburgers and hot dogs may be purchased. The Grange Hall is located along US Route 2 in Rumford Center.
Last week it slipped my mind. We should have reported about Election Day that went on Nov. 6. It was a busy day with 15 people registering to vote for the first time. 78 percent of registered voters turned out to vote.
After many years as ballot clerks for the Republicans Paul Ramsey and Gordon Howe stepped aside because of illness. Laird Bean and John Booth replaced them. As usual, Hebert Adams and Donna Worcester held up the Democratic side. Kelly Harrington was the Election Clerk and Clem Worcester was the Election Warden. Because of the large amount of information to glean from the ballots it took until 9:30 p.m. to complete tabulations. The election staff was treated to a chicken pie made by Donna Worcester for lunch. Later an evening meal was sent in from a local eatery.
We have been having warm fall days and cold nights with temperatures dipping into the teens.
