Fall has officially started and what a glorious time of year. Aside from the calendar telling everyone that it is fall, we, here in Maine can see it, feel it, live it and appreciate it. The changing of the leaves, the scent of wood stoves burning to keep warm during the night, yet later in the day donning shorts and T-shirts. Driving into town in the wee morning hours is awesome – so much thick fog and then seeing this doe and her two fawns on the side of the road along the Intervale Road almost every morning is just beautiful. So, please, just drive carefully and enjoy the beauty of it all.
I couldn't get much news this week, well none. Sorry about that. Yet there is news to share. This Saturday, Sept. 28 there will be an auction/yard sale at Steve Seames’, 14 West Bethel Road, Route 2, to benefit the Locke’s Mills Union Church. The preview starts at 9 a.m. Make sure to go and check it out and support. I may overstep my bounds, yet Locke’s Mills and East Bethel, it's one big family, right? Well having said this, call me at 824-3220 or e-mail email@example.com and tell me how you feel about me having said this.
Now, the new Trivia: John Hebert Carter, Jr., owned the former Israel Kimball homestead on the Middle Intervale. Who did he sell this property to in 1957?
