The middle of October, and still no frost. I still have a few flowers blooming out in the front yard.
My brother, Steve McLain, was at the house Saturday and stayed to help out on a Gilead Historical Society project.
Lise McLain attended the Senior Club lunch and meeting last Wednesday at the Pleasant Valley Grange Hall in West Bethel.
Mary Tyler had a visit from her granddaughter, Starr Trefrey, last Saturday. Starr’s grandparents, Paul and Loretta Lachapelle, drove her over for the visit.
Someone from away, who reads my column, asked me a little while ago about Libby Bane. At the time, I had no information for them. In case they do not follow the website “I Grew Up in Bethel,” I now have some information. There was a link to a story that featured Libby recently. The title of the article was “Antique Car Show in Brentwood brings back the sweet memories of youth” and can be found at www.newhampshire.com. It was posted by Barbara Bane McLaughlin.
Gilead Historical Society
The GHS was busy this past Saturday. Steve McLain, Norm Buttrick and Hugh Chapman got together to put up the GHS sign on the corner lot. They dug the holes and strategically placed the sign so anyone taking a picture can still get pictures of the buildings without the sign blocking their view.
Now all those people who stop on the corner to take those pictures of the 1851 Railroad Station and the 1903 Gilead Village Schoolhouse will realize that these buildings are the home of the Gilead Historical Society.
Bob and Judy Bishop were at the house later in the day. Bob brought his materials that he had as treasurer of the GHS and left them here since I am now the new treasurer.
