Greetings from the very quiet little town of Upton — at least as far as I’ve heard it’s quiet.
Except for the weather. That’s been a little wild with wind, 30-degree temperatures, snow and rain.
There were at least fifty people at the graveside service for Ray and Vi Bernier. Most of them were relatives, but several folks from both Errol and Upton were there. Following, the family hosted a get-together at Ray’s house.
Dennis Casko and Grub LaVallee had a hairy experience when their canoe capsized on B Pond. Fortunately, Dennis, being a better swimmer than Grub, was able to help them and the canoe get to shore. In the process, Dennis lost his shoes and his feet suffered and were stuck by all kinds of prickles on the trek back.
Since I haven’t heard otherwise, I assume breakfast will be served at the Ladies Aid on Sunday from 8 to 11. By the time the paper comes out, I’ll definitely know, so feel free to call me.
Dope Goodrum’s foot is healing nicely. He’s in a walking cast and has ditched the crutches.
Have a wonderful week. Selah
