In rereading what I wrote last week, it appears I misspoke. I am not the oldest columnist, I am the longest-running columnist, at this time. That does not mean that I am the best, just that I’ve hung in there. I do enjoy some of the newer writers and am glad to see new ones that emerge from time to time. It keeps things fresh and interesting. That having been said, I hope to get this year off to new and better heights. To that end, I ask that all who have something they would like to see in this column please call me at 739-9115. I do not check my e-mail often enough for that to be a good option.
Tonight, Jan. 20, at the Wilkins House, there will be a potluck supper starting at 6 p.m. The hosts will be Ginny and Denny Raymond and Meg Wheeler. The suppers will continue until May. FMI call 583-6677.
The 20th at 10 a.m. the ACA group will meet at Waterford Library. We are still working on the 4th step and newcomers are welcome. FMI call 739-9115. In the case of a bad storm the meeting might be canceled. Please check.
The Bethel WinterFest is this weekend. I have been looking at the Ice Sculpture every time we pass by on our way to work. It was still small last time but growing steadily. By this Saturday it should be full grown. I will check, so should you.
Waterford Fair’s Winter Fun Day takes place on Sunday, the 23rd of January at the Highview Farm of Bill and Darcy Winslow. It is on the Leander Harmon Road in Harrison on Route 117. Watch for signs. It begins at 10 a.m. Come see the animals including bull calves and mini horses born last summer.
This Sunday is also free ski day at Sunday River for SAD 17 and RSU 10. Lift tickets are $10 as are rentals and adult learn to ski. There is a 50 percent discount on food and beverages.
We keep finding more of our stuff that has been hidden in boxes. It is like Christmas all over when David unpacks a tote of a box of goodies. Still looking for my birth certificate because a new one seems to be very difficult to get.
On that note, enjoy the new snow and drive carefully in that and the predicted ice. Stay warm.
