RAYMOND PULK JR. 6/16/29 - 9/2/14

A great man passed away last night,

But it wasn’t without a fight.

He fought with every bit of him,

He fought with all his might.

And though he’s not here on earth with us, 

He’ll be with us every day,

For he holds a piece of our hearts,

In so many different ways.

We know the pain will fill our hearts,

Library News

I find myself agreeing with visitors to the Calais Free library that this is the best time of year the state of Maine has to offer.  Our gardens are still yielding vegetables.  The air has cooled and has a nice comfort level.  Everywhere we look green remains the color of the day.  Throughout these crisp days, our minds begin turning to new activities.
