Boy, did this week go by fast or what? Feel like I just wrote to you all, yet here I am already again. Do hope everyone was able to enjoy spring vacation? Oh, I know, it’s mostly for the kids to enjoy. It does have its benefits for the adults also, though.
Thanks to the school break, Eva and John Coolidge had a wonderful time going fishing and just having a good time with their grandkids, Hallie and Derrick Svach (their daughter Betty Ann’s kids), who were here for the week visiting.
The Western Mountains Senior College has some more news for you again, as The Senior College has an event coming up on Thursday, May 6, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the Mahoosuc Mountain Lodge in Newry and anyone interested is invited.

On May 3, the East Bethel Cemetery Association will hold their annual meeting at 7 p.m. at the Grange Hall. At this time the clean-up date and lot prices will be decided on. Please, do come, if you are interested.
The Alder River Grange had their regular scheduled meeting in April with 10 members attending. They decided that the turkey supper is on for this year again. There will be an open meeting on May 14 in conjunction with the presentation of a Community Service Award for someone in East Bethel. So, be there and support our East Bethel/Alder River Grange. It sure will be interesting and exciting to find out who will get the award!
