This week went by so fast again. Fryeburg Fair has come and gone with some folks commenting how hot it was. Hmm, when I first moved here in 1986,what I have for pictures of us going to the Fair several years in a row, we are all always dressed in Winter clothing and giving in, going home for we were just plain freezing.
Arlene Harrington seems to have an Easter Lilly, which seems to want to go into bloom for the second time this year. It will be interesting to find out if it actually did. From Thursday till Sunday her sister Charmaine and friend Carol were there visiting and had a great time, at times staying up till midnight playing cards together.
On Sunday, Sue Landther and friend Kim also stopped in for a visit on their way home back to Bucksport from the Fryeburg Fair.
Bettyann and Sonny Hastings went to see Julie and Jack Warwick in Milford, N.H. last weekend. As usual, they had a great time with the kids, going for breakfast out and shopping. Tuesday was their Fryeburg Fair day and they enjoyed many of the great exhibits; especially the Gypsy Wagons and the Fiber Barn women spinning all the various fibers.
Those of you curious and waiting for the Trivia answer: John Hebert Carter, Jr., in 1957, sold his property to Terence Hathaway.
Alder River Grange had a regular meeting on Oct. 4 with eight members, three visitors, and one onlooker present. It was a short meeting, and right after, the potatoes, carrots and turnip were peeled in record time.
The next meeting will be Nov. 8 with a "peel" party right after the meeting to ready the turkeys and veggies for the turkey supper on Nov. 9. This supper, we have always said, was free for veterans, but this time all military people are to get a free turkey supper if they come. There will be turkey with all the fixings.
Please feel free to call me at 824-3220 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for I always appreciate hearing from you.
Have a great week.
