The Ladies Aid Association has some vender sites available for Upton Fun Day. The sites are $10 for nonmembers and $5 for members.
One of the activities they have planned for Fun Day is a quilt exhibition and contest. The Ladies will serve breakfast Sunday, July 8, from 8 to 11 a.m. They have reserved a vender site at The Upton House yard sale; one of the items they will offer is a “Treasure Chest
Raffle.” The value of the items in the Treasure Chest is close to $200.
The Upton Historical Society will meet only once more before Fun Day (1 p.m., July 29, in the school). Please try to attend this meeting to help with the plans and schedules for their part of the festivities. Anyone interested in joining the parade should e-mail Lou at email@example.com. This year's parade theme is “Logging, Past and Present.” At last count, there were only 4 (four) tickets available for the tour of the historic homes of Louise Dickinson Rich.
The tour will take place Saturday, July 14. To purchase a ticket or to request more information please call Charlotte, 533-2061 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Letter B Notch Riders will meet Sunday, July 8, 9 a.m. in the Upton House.
The Upton House will hold it's annual Charity Yard Sale July 6,

The Annual Upton Town Meeting took place Thursday, June 28. The meeting lasted nearly 3(three) hours. It was at times quite intense. I wish the best to the newly elected town officials.
Penny and I are accustomed to seeing deer, moose, bears and other wild animals in our fields, but it was strange to see a cow happily grazing under the apple trees. I believe it has been more then 50 years since one has done that.
Call 533-2010 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your news, thank you.
