This week I have the pleasure to write about some of the joyous Holiday celebrations. So, let's get right to it.
Diane Howe and Michael Blaisdell had the following Thanksgiving dinner guests: Peter and Elsie Seames, Dustin and Marian Howe, Jason Coolidge and Bekah Howe with children Kimball and Quinn, Rob Hayes and Alyssa Howe with children Skylar and Dylan, Andrea Howe with daughter Savannah Merrill, Shanda Morgan with children Hailey and Hunter, and Macy Blaisdell and Heather McAllister with Landon Blaisdell.
At Butch and Ann Crockett's house Jarrod and his wife Paige, Ryan Stowell, Jen and Lee Norris, Grace Gibson, Esther Wilson, Gerard Dupont, Ken and Suzi Whitney enjoyed their Holiday dinner together.
Jarrod will be sworn in for District 91 on Dec. 1. Jarrod -- all your family, friends, and the neighborhood are so proud of you. Thank you and also a big head's up to his wonderful wife Paige. It just stands to prove again that behind every great man stands a great woman.
Jean Grover spent Thanksgiving with her son Jim, daughter Dawn, and extended family.
Bettyann and Sonny Hastings had an early Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday with Jay and Crystal Aylward, Meeba, Anna, and little Alison. On Thanksgiving they went to Jack and Julie Warwicks's for dinner. Scott and Ellen Franklin with children Kathryn, John, and Summer; Eric and Celeste Hastings with sons Zach and Tom; Jack's son Scott and wife Angela Warwick with their sons Troy and Aiden all were there to celebrate together.
Arlene Harrington left on Wednesday for her daughter's house in Durham to spend the Holiday with her and family, and came home on Saturday.
At my house we had an early Thanksgiving dinner on Wednesday evening. My daughter Katy, her husband Jim, my grandsons Ben and Boden, my son Ryan, and Eric Berard enjoyed our dinner and time together.
I would love to hear from more folks about how they spent their Holiday. So, please, call me 824-3220 or e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now I would like to take a moment to thank those neighbors who helped my daughter, son, and the kids after someone had run them off the road Friday evening. I feel so blessed to live in such a nice, caring, and friendly neighborhood!
This week is also the time for the answer to the Trivia. The 1892 East Bethel School Report stated ,"Mary Hutchins (now Mrs. Wallace Clark) taught the spring term. She had 21 pupils and was paid $6 per week. Mr. J.S. Hutchins during the fall and winter, had 30 pupils and received $10.Two rows of seats were added to the school room." I do appreciate all the participation and especially the extra research it inspires. One just has to love history.
Have a great week.
