Monday was a sad day to be gathering information for the column. Love, sympathy and prayers to the families of those who died and to all those injured in this horrific act of cowardice.
Karen Lanther and Judith Smith from Bucksport were visitors at Arlene Harrington's Thursday and Friday. They had a wonderful time together.
According to Susan Wight, it’s been a great wildlife week at the Bartlett Cemetery. There are geese and ducks on the river, especially in the early mornings. A large moose went through the cemetery the evening of the 11th and frightened four deer walking through the field. The deer retraced their steps and went around the cemetery as the moose crossed the road and headed up the hill beyond the Savage’s firewood place. The Northern Harrier or marsh hawk has floated around the fields, three tom turkeys and a flock of hens strolled through the area and the phoebes and tree swallows are back. A male cardinal has arrived to keep company with the female that stayed here all winter.
The spring cleanup of the cemetery has begun with a pile of sticks and debris being made at the entrance, preparing for the town crew to pick it up.
Spring has begun!
I received a message from my friends Jackie and Ted, who are caretakers of a camp, River Junction in Nobleton, Fla. They told me that Bill Swan was a camper there just recently. What a small world. I would love to hear from Bill to hear a bit more about this camp. I can be reached at 824-3220 or e-mail email@example.com, thank you.
Don't forget about the Fish Fry this Saturday from 3to 6 p.m. at the Legion Hall. Hope to see many of you there.
Have a great week.
