The porch at Hodgdon Green, the assisted-living home in Damariscotta, is being used daily this summer as residents and guests enjoy this special spot. Not only humans, but Mother Robin has raised her brood under the eves, flying in and out to feed those wide-open mouths. Great entertainment for porch sitters.
A new employee has joined the home staff. She is Julie Sawyer, of Wiscasset who recently earned her certification as a certified residential medication aide. The home is thrilled to have her.
The driveway and parking area have recently been given a seal coat. There are more improvements to come, to be reported as they happen.
Thanks go to a special neighbor, Amy LaLime, for her generosity and thoughtfulness. Throughout the season, she brings over lovely bouquets of garden glowers to brighten the dining room tables. During the kitchen renovation, when residents were having their meals at a community table on the lower level, Amy made a special tablecloth. It was fitted to the long table, colorful and cheerful. Thanks, neighbor!
And once again, the first Friday of the month brings us Elijah’s Coffee House. All are invited to come and visit and enjoy the goodies. That’s this Friday, Aug. 4, from 9-11 a.m.
A thought to keep in mind, taken from the Farmers’ Almanac: “It is only possible to live happily ever after on a day-to-day basis.” Live generously!
