News Flash! Spring has decided against coming to Maine this year. Winter will be extended into July.

Congratulations to Alexis Doten on her impressive performance at the cheering competition held in Bangor recently.

Sending get well wishes to so many friends this week: Joanna Bailey, Lynn Hill, and Pat Noddin. Hope the sunny days make your days a lot brighter.

Congratulations to Olivia Smith, daughter of Greg and Justis. She was chosen as Player of the Week by the North Atlantic Conference in softball. Liv plays for Husson University. So proud of this girl; I’ve known her since she was born. 

I heard that the turkey supper at the Woodland Methodist Church was an enormous success. The church members put on many suppers throughout the year to help with the fuel bill and the general expenses of the building.

Sending sympathy and prayers to the family of Larry Lewis, the son of Carl & Eileen Lewis. Larry passed away on April 3rd at Eastern Maine Medical Center. He had been in dialysis for about five years. He is survived by his mother, wife Sharon, son David, and daughter Dawn plus grandchildren. A committal service will be held later this summer at the Baring Cemetery. 

Troy Doten has returned home from a trip to the Florida Keys. I can’t understand why he would want to come back to the wintry weather

Judy Antoniello, Beth and I traveled to Dover-Foxcroft Saturday to attend the funeral of Maurice Marden. Maurice and I shared 3 grandchildren.  It was a beautiful service and attended by his many friends from Calais and the Dover-Foxcroft area. Sending healing thoughts to his wife Marion and their children Craig, Jay, and Jennifer.

Casey McLellan fell on the playground at school and injured her ankle. She is proudly sporting an air cast and waiting to hear if it’s broken. 

And this, my friends, is all I know. What little knowledge this old brain contains has been shared with you. Remember to let me know what’s happening in the neighborhood. 

Stay well; stay safe. See you next week.
