The Washington Schoolhouse will be hosting the Katahdin Valley Boys on Saturday, July 7 at 7 p.m. The Katahdin Valley Boys are a high-energy bluegrass band, with Round Pond’s very own Steve Bixby on bass.
Also at the schoolhouse, on Thursday, July 12 from 7-8:30 pm, George Sawyer will be calling out the Beano numbers. Each Beano night this year, there will be a secret swap prize donated by local businesses.
Many thanks to Donna Green and Jim Stano for their wonderful idea to Round Pond Village Improvement of a Little Free Library. These are sort of a wooden kiosk that holds books and protects them from the elements, and anyone can borrow one or even donate one. We have ordered the “library” and will hopefully have it installed in the next week or two. A suitable site will be determined, which I will be sure to mention in this column.
Monday night music and a cook-out will commence at King Ro this week and each Monday after as the weather allows. There will be burgers, chicken, hot dogs, sausage with peppers and onions, and a variety of pasta or potato salads. Music goes from 5-7 p.m.
Don’t forget that Sassafras Stomp will be performing at the Little Brown Church summer concert series on Wednesday, July 11 at 7:30 p.m. The following Wednesday will feature Round Pond’s Castlebay, performing Celtic and maritime music.
Sunday’s guest minister at the Little Brown Church on July 8 will be the Rev. Ray Taylor. Vesper services start at 7 p.m.
The Art of Antiquing has expanded its summer hours. It is now open Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. for July and August.
Quote of the week (this is more of a slogan that came from the World War II era):
Use it up
Wear it out
Make it do
Or do without
