There will be no breakfast at the Ladies Aid Building on Sunday, May 9. The breakfasts will probably continue until Memorial Day at which time the members will discuss continuing them throughout the summer. Attendance was at an all-time low last Sunday. It may have been just that one time, but it may be that during the summer months folks are too busy with other activities and such. This column should be able to keep you up to date!
Planning Board members Joe Bernier, Rose Stevens, Bob Pepler, Diane Williamson, Jen Casey and Bob Brown met Friday night. Paul Casey, Caitlin Casey and Mark Pelkey also attended the meeting. Joe Bernier was elected as chairman, Bob Brown as secretary, and Diane Williamson was sworn in.

Anyone interested in being a part of the organization to any extent is encouraged to at-tend this meeting.
Our woodpecker has seemingly decided to find another location to entice a mate — we can hear him up in the woods!
Central Maine Community College’s baseball team are the champions in their league. On Mon-day, May 10, they’ll be participating in the National Tournament at Old Orchard Beach. Maybe I’ll get a little tanning in before I go watch Benjamin (and his team) play ball!
Selectmen have purchased a town safe and are now in accordance with the law. All of the town’s records, checkbook, and so forth will have a “safe” place to be kept. Perhaps if the town had had a safe previously, the birth records, marriage records and town reports would not have been "lost"; or at least finding them might have been possible. The next Selectmen’s meeting will be May 11 at 7 p.m. at the town office.
I hope each of you enjoys your week. Selah
