Granite Hall is kicking off the holiday season with a 20%-off sale starting this Friday, Nov. 29. Granite Hall is open Tuesday through Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and closed Mondays.
If you are in the Round Pond area on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, Dec. 1, do stop in at The Library Art Studio. It is between the tennis court and Munro Brook, at 1467 Route 32. An exhibit of oils and woodcuts based on climate change is being exhibited from Nov. 26 through Dec. 14. The artist is Sally DeLorme Pedrick, of Round Pond. A reception on Sunday, Dec. 1, is from 1-5 p.m. Sally says there is no turkey on the menu, but instead some home-baked fare will be served.
King Ro will not be serving Friday-night dinner this week due to the holiday. We will be back up and running on Dec. 6, with baked stuffed shells/sauce and corn chowder. Both will be served with salad and garlic knots. The dessert will be a Mounds cake.
The Brown Church Christmas service is fast approaching. This year, it will be held on Sunday, Dec. 8 at 7 p.m. with the Rev. Bobby Ives officiating. Castlebay will be providing the music, along with Richard Kinney on piano, for the ever-popular hymn sing.
A warm welcome to Gary Smith, who purchased our house on Back Shore Road. Gary hails from Alaska and will be living here year-round. I have no doubt that he will fit in nicely around here.
While it was very difficult to move out of my childhood home, it was made much easier by the Prichards letting us winter in my grandfather’s old house behind Granite Hall. I am meeting many friendly ghosts in this house!
