It has been a long time since I made a list of things for which I am grateful to be shared on Thanksgiving day so bear with me as I venture forward.
First, I am very happy that I do not live in Buffalo, New York where there is seven feet of snow and they call you “Buffalonians.”
Mike and Liz Hall are pleased to announce Laura Conway as Hall’s newest Funeral Director and Tribute Team Member in Boothbay, Waldoboro and Thomaston.
The following was written by former Senior Center Trustee Ellie Tracy.
“Not long ago, I had the opportunity to sit down with Bill and Lynn Maloney, some of our newest members who live in Wiscasset, in a home that was a bed and breakfast. Shortly after taking up residency, imagine their surprise when they answered a knock on the door to find folks looking for a room for the night.
Betsy Wing has written a new book.
This is not a review. I haven't had time to read the whole book — it’s just out. I'm a very slow reader.
Betsy lives in East Boothbay, near the end of a long road that ends in the woods, just back from the edge of Linekin Bay. A perfect place to write.
“Now History” is the second book she has written, but Betsy has translated many French titles for English publication. She's an artist, too.
Mid Coast Hospital Auxiliary members are now searching for greens and other natural materials to be gathered from local homes, farms, fields, forests and shores, for the annual “Holiday Bazaar” at Mid Coast Hospital Thursday and Friday, Dec. 4 and 5, at the hospital, 123 Medical Center Drive.
It takes place on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Friday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Christina Ferreira has known she wanted to teach in a special services classroom for as long as she can remember.
“I always knew I wanted to teach at this level,” Ferreira said. “Seeing kids overcome difficulties, challenging and engaging them and reaching them.”
Ferreira lives in West Gardiner, and is new this year in the Wiscasset school system. She previously taught in the Norway, Maine special education department with grades 4-6, but wanted to work closer to home.
Two Bridges Regional Jail is holding a Craft Fair on Saturday, Dec. 6, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the facility on 522 Bath Road, Wiscasset, just off of Route 1.
Inmates at Two Bridges Regional Jail have been putting their time and creative talents to good use while incarcerated by producing small items for sale for $5 and up.
The DaPonte String Quartet, will present a Yuletide-themed concert on Saturday, Dec. 13 at St. Columba’s Episcopal Church in Boothbay Harbor, as a benefit to further St. Columba’s ministries.
Another T-shirt Sunday!
Hopefully a few good days help with roof repairs, switching screens out for window inserts, planting bulbs and driveway markers before the ground freezes. Comical, really, how ideas and things-to-do just keep coming as the temperature drops!
The Woolwich Town Recreation Committee is sponsoring the 23rd annual Yule Sing & Tree Lighting on Sunday, Dec. 7 at 5 p.m. at the historic Nequasset Meetinghouse.
The program will feature a variety of talented performers from the town and among the traditional highlights is the reading of “Twas the Night Before Christmas” with Ann Pierson & Friends followed by the arrival of Santa Claus.
