Spring has sprung!!  What grand weather.   Yards are being raked, daffodils are sprouting up, robins are busy eating their favorite treats, the Stream has a steady flow of people fishing, guides are guiding , the sporting camps are busy with  “sports” and the seasonal resident of Grand Lake Stream are coming back “home”. WELCOME SPRING!

Have you looked at the Downeast Lakes Land Trust web site recently? Always a great site filled with pictures and news!

In reviewing the Hinckley Township book by Minnie Atkinson it is interesting to note how July 4th was celebrated.  Here is an excerpt.” Fourths of July, in the last few years, have been celebrated in the old fashioned manner.  Water sports take place in the morning, foot races and novel contest of various sorts in the early afternoon. A ball game concludes the afternoon sports. There is dancing in the hall from an early hour in the afternoon until late at night.  Ice cream and other refreshments were for sale. Balloon men were in attendance with their colorful wares.  Fire crackers and pistols constantly pop.  Automobile parties from the nearest towns come to the village, and, if the day is pleasant there is ceaseless animation”.  Wow.. The more things change the more they are the same!
