Welcome to 2013! Let's hope it will be a good year for all of us. Did any of you make any New Year resolutions? I'd love to hear about them. Call me at 824-3220 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also message me on Facebook or stop by the InnSide Shop and see me there.
Jean Grover had a good time attending several family parties over the the Holiday season.
Sunday was doughnut day at James Haines' house. He made a double batch of nutmeg (aka plain), one batch of molasses, and one batch of pumpkin. Altogether he made between 11 or 12 dozen, and also made a batch of pumpkin whoopie pies. Hmm, wonder if he takes orders or, maybe he ought to open an East Bethel Bakery? It sure would sound great to me.
Now on to the answer to the Trivia question. At the 1895 Town Meeting the voters appropriated $1,000 for the repair of the East Bethel Schoolhouse, said money to be expended by the following committee: C. Mellen Kimball, George H. Swan and Dr. J.A. Twaddle. The house was raised, a new furnace installed (at the cost of $135 from Hastings Hardware). The improvements cost $79.97 more than the amount raised.
Have a great week and try and stay warm.
