Meddybemps has experienced another loss of one of its dear, long time residents.  Deepest sympathy and condolences are extended to the family of Jennifer Doten -- wife of Bill Doten, Jr., mother of Alyssa Shaw, daughter of Terry Reynolds and granddaughter of Jean Campbell. This great tragedy and untimely death has shocked and saddened all of us who knew and loved Jennifer.   

In other personal news, best birthday wishes this week to Mary McLellan on December 14.  She is a dear friend and leader of the Ladies Bible Study I attend each week at Second Baptist in Calais.  Meddybemps’ own Tammi Smith celebrates hers on December 16.  When you see these ladies around town, be sure to give them good birthday wishes. 

Mark your calendar for the annual Christmas Concert, Sunday, December 20 - 6 p.m. by the full choir of Second Baptist Church, Calais.  All are invited to share in this presentation of favorite Christmas songs.  


The countdown to Christmas is upon us. Only 14 shopping days left.  Christmas Blessings to all!
