When I saw a semi-local woman pulled over by a sheriff in town, it reminded me of a story Mom told me. Years ago, local residents complained to the powers that be about traffic speeding through town.

Jennie Bernier’s housewarming gathering in Naples was a great success. There were about 50 friends and relatives that enjoyed the BBQ, and loved her new home and hospitality.
It’s with sadness I report the death of Uncle Ray Bernier, who died Monday, April 26 at Maine Medical Center in Portland. We offer our condolences to his family. Ray had many friends in Upton who will miss him.
Ladies Aid members will be meeting at 10 on Thursday to work on a quilt. Bring your lunch and your sewing machine. Or, if you don’t sew, you can pin the pieces together for those who do!

Enjoy your week. Selah.
