It is the Ides of September and some days it definitely feels like fall and others it is still summer. I am glad for the cool mornings and the warm, sunny afternoons without the 90-degree weather. We have been lucky with the weather and especially with the nighttime rain storms. Who could ask for anything better!
Being fall it is time to pick apples. They are ready locally and we keep saying we are going to get some. We will this week! It is also time for the Oxford County Fair.I hope to get to that also. It lasts all this week.
I am going to the first book discussion group. It is had North Bridgton Library on Route 37 at 3 p.m. on Friday, the 16th. The groups meet at North Bridgton, Waterford, then Harrison libraries. Check any of the libraries for details. The first book is "Country of the Pointed Firs" by Sarah Orne Jewett.
Saturday, the 18th, the Bethel Harvest Fest and Chowdah Cookoff starts at 11 a.m. at Betel Common. There will also be chainsaw carving, horse-drawn wagon rides and fly tying and casting. FMI call 824-2282.
Keep your calendar open for the 5th Annual Fall Foliage Road Race in Waterford. Roads will be closed.
That is all for this week. Have a great week and enjoy the good weather.
