I am writing this a day early, in case the storm ”Irene” blows through and takes out our power, hopeful that everyone is safe and has taken the suggested steps to be prepared for a strong storm. The last week of September is when many of our summer guests will b leaving for home and we wish them all a safe journey home. A reminder that our local school will be opening the first week of September, so we be aware of school buses and children walking or riding bikes to school. I got the word this past week that we have another local Alumni to be proud of; Sophie Clark is in this season’s survivor TV series. We wish you success in the series ahead.
Living in the North Country has many advantages and one great one is that neighbors and friends help each other especially in times of need. I had an incident this past week where I was faced with a big problem and I can not thank my neighbor Curtis Boardman enough for coming to my rescue. This predicted storm could bring out many more neighborly good deeds.
We have some very serious card players here in the community; recently Rita Devan organized a four table bridge gathering at Johnny’s Smoke House. They had a wonderful afternoon in a relaxed and beautifully decorated restaurant, and enjoyed a great lunch, so a fun time was had by all. There were 16 players, Donna Brown was the top winner, Bev Dickerson came in second and Rita Devan came in third place.
I am not sure how the end of the season special concerts made out, will report next week, there were some cancellations due to the predicted storm, just to be on the safe side. So if anyone is in doubt about an event it is best to call ahead to be sure that it will take place,
Happy Birthday to Stephanie Strong Sept. 1, Tara Robare Sept. 1, Mine Sept. 3, Harris Young Sept. 4, James Hotaling Sept. 4, Donna Crowningshield Sept. 5.
