It is September and the school buses have been rolling for a week now. Around here most of the students seem to have gone back quietly. Parents may be breathing a sigh of relief while students not so much. We were pleased to see grandson Carter’s picture on the front page of the special school section of the Advertiser last week. It is amazing to realize that we have grandkids in Paris, Guy E. Rowe and Waterford schools as well as the middle and high school. They have all reported a good start to the year.
We are gearing up for our housewarming/anniversary celebration on Sunday, the 5th, at 1 p.m. Hard to believe it has been seven years and also that the house is pretty much done, except for a few cosmetic details. I do still have to make curtains.
Thursday, the 2nd of September, ACA ((Adult Children of Alcoholics and Dysfunctional Families) meets from 10 to 11:15 a.m. at the Waterford Library on Route 37 in the Waterford Flats. FMI call 739-9115.
Also going on is the Deertrees will present "The 39 Steps" on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20/10 students. Tickets available at the Cool Moose, Bridgton, Country Sleigh Naples and Fare Share in Norway.
Next week, Sept 13, Socrates Café will meet 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Waterford Library. They will be discussing "What is the Responsibility in a Free Society." Facilitator will be Jim Kearney. FMI 583-6957.
Western Mountains Senior College will hold its annual meeting on Sept 8 (Wednesday) from 5-7 p.m. at the Bethel Congregational Church. Please RSVP by Sept. 3 to Eileen Meisner at 824-4381.
That is all for this week. Have a great Labor Day Weekend and beware if you choose to travel Route 26. It has been declared the deadliest road in the area.
