Happy Fourth of July to all! Let’s hope that we get some good summer weather for July. Warm and some rain, but not like it was in June.
My brother, Steve McLain, has been busy in his garden. His beans and peas are growing faster than he expected them to with so much rain.
Steve and Lise McLain attended Fish Fry Friday at the Greenwood Fire Station last week. They have been before and they said that the food was as delicious this time as the last.
Hugh and I traveled to Bridgton last Wednesday to meet Carole and pick up William and Annie. They got to spend a few days with their dad and Michele. Sidney and Ajay are always anxious for them to come and spend a few days.
Happy Birthday wishes to one of the grandchildren, Ajay Landry, who will be 11 years old on July 9.
There are also a couple of other birthdays coming up on July 12. Happy Birthday to a couple of friends, Mary Tyler and Eileen Meisner.
Mary Tyler had a busy day of traveling last Sunday to catch up with some relatives. She headed for Hill, N.H., to attend the third birthday party for Olivia Bell, who is the daughter of Adam and Jess Bell. On the way back home, she stopped in Sanbornton, N.H., to visit with Karen Caveney and Kathy Tyler in Franklin, N.H. When Mary got back to Shelburne, N.H., she had a bear cub cross the road in front of her. The cub was so small that he/she had to climb to get over the guard rail.
Last Saturday, Hugh and I headed for Bethel to get some errands done and to check out the Rotary Club Yard Sale. The day began a little rainy, so we decided not to open up the buildings for the Gilead Historical Society. We may open up next weekend or even on the Fourth of July if the weather is at all decent.
We ran into several people that we knew at the sale. There were the usual members of the Rotary Club there to wait on people. They had donuts and cake, but I did not see any pies. Which means I should mention that we saw Pearl Jordan. Bruce Powell was celebrating a birthday, so that is why there was cake. Dave Murphy was busy getting ready for the auction that evening. Alec Newell was searching though the numerous books. He mentioned something about a book signed by George Bush and how it might make a nice present for a democrat that he knows! Melinda Remington was arriving just as we were leaving. We did find some old picture frames for the Gilead Historical Society because we have several old pictures that would look better in them than in newer frames. In answer to Dave Freiday’s question about whether I found anything to write about, I guess I did.
Gilead Historical Society
I have heard from several members of the GHS as to how pleased they are with the coverage that the Bethel Citizen gave us for Friends and Family Day. The full page of pictures that Alison took was just beautiful! She captured the spirit of the day with pictures of both buildings, both inside and out.
