We flipped the calendar to September still looking for some good fall weather, but it has been on the colder side and we have had warnings to cover our garden items at night. Let’ hope that we still have some good fall days ahead, it is the start of the school soccer season and they like the better weather. There still seems to be some scattered yard sales each weekend. so if you are a fan keep watch for these special offerings.
The Paine Library reported a very successful summer season, all of their fund raisers did very well and the money goes to enhance needed items at the library. It was also great to hear of their efforts at keeping so many children reading over the summer school vacation time. Community events are still very active and there is a variety of things to take part in over the next few weeks. I got an e-mail from Joyce Marcianti who is a volunteer at the Animal Shelter and due to several conditions they now have an over load of dogs and cats in need of good homes. If you are interested just get in touch or visit the Westport shelter.
As the weather turns colder we are aware of the need for good warm outer clothing, so to this end there is a drive started to collect gently used winter coats, mittens, boots. hats and etc. These will be made available to persons in need within our community. If you have such donations they can be dropped off at the local school or the town hall. In turn if you know of a family in need contact Lane Sayward at 963-7974 or 572-6426 and share the need and state the items and size needed.
