The week of Thanksgiving is here and all of us should take the time and look back over the events of the past months.
So, it happened. Mom and Dad had a Halloween party, on Halloween. A lot of our neighbors came; friends from work, and my human sister Sarah’s friends from her work.
Growing up in Tenant’s Harbor, Mia’s Shear Perfection owner Mia Feltis never dreamed of having a day job. Like most young people, she didn’t give much thought to having a family, or a career, and she certainly didn’t worry much about building a successful business.
Ask any of the Lincoln County Gleaner volunteers what they do during the week, and the answer is usually, “Clean up vegetables.”
Welcome to our monthly column to help keep you up to date on what Helping Hands has been up to in Round Pond. We are a newly reorganized nonprofit group, providing support for services and resources to people and organizations in the community.
Walter Greene-Morse, owner and operator of Patriot Ridge Homestead in Jefferson, has been committed to serving his fellow veterans and serving the local school community since moving back home in 2013.
Each fall Midcoast Conservancy’s property monitors trek into the far flung reaches of Midcoast Maine to explore undisturbed forests, blueberry fields, marshes, bogs, scenic homesteads, and everything in between, all in the name of conservation! You see, each of the 14,000 acres of land under Midcoast Conservancy’s stewardship need to be walked each year. This ensures that there have been no timber trespasses, dumping, or other activities that impact the ecological integrity of the land.
On the list of things I am willing to get up early for, brunch is right near the top. A great deal on books is a very close second.
I know, it’s been a while since we last visited. I’m humbled by the number of people that have asked me why I haven’t been doing any scribbling. The only thing I can say is I’ve been a little lazy!
The colorful maples on our road still hold to most of their leaves, a couple bright pink blossoms still grace the dahlia at our front steps. We have survived the mad scramble of ghouls, ghosts, and witches of Halloween, but the nights are chilly to remind us that November has arrived.
Unaware of the historical significance at the moment, Whitefield resident David Jackson was a Navy sailor on the aircraft carrier USS Hornet when Apollo 11 splashed into the Pacific Ocean on July 24, 1969. The carrier was responsible for retrieving the Apollo spacecraft and crew.
Hi from the Nobleboro-Jefferson Transfer Station. Let me introduce myself. My name is John Arsenault, the new station manager. I plan to follow prior set standards, with safety being first and foremost. Keeping the facility and grounds clean and organized is second, and third, friendly courteous service.
How many apples can a group of volunteers pick, over the course of a few hours? When you have volunteers from Kieve Wavus Education, the answer is over 1,000 pounds. Couple that with a group that came together last Sunday, and you have another 750 pounds. That’s 1,750 pounds of apples that were picked, dear readers, and they’re all going out to the community to those in need.
Last week we looked at the power of doubt to create an environment where the credulous can be easily led. As we have seen, there is no need to convince people disposed to believe. Doubt suffices.
Many people have been asking if Friday night dinners will continue at King Ro this winter. There will indeed be “to go” dinners starting on Nov. 4. They kick off with roasted chicken leg quarters, mashed potatoes, stuffing, peas, Anadama roll, and apple crisp. It is being contemplated whether or not the dinners will start up inside again in 2023. Stay tuned.
