This months Down East magazine features Boston Ocular Prosthetics and Stone Fox Creamery. Ottie Thomas-Smith of Boston Ocular Prosthetics received a full 4 page spread in the magazine, which I thought was very exciting. Our very own Stone Fox Creamery was named one of the best ice creams in Maine. They highlighted their pumpkin ginger flavor. Congrats on the mention Kathy.
Salt Sand Shed
The salt sand shed is just about complete. If you hadn't had a chance to have a look, the shed is located next to the town dump. The project which was approved at our past town meeting in March, and which received a heated debate but ultimately was passed, has impressively gone up over the past month or so.
Get Well Soon
Carol Kenny recently has suffered more health issues and was brought to Eastern Maine medical Center in Bangor for recovery. I hope for a speedy and full recovery for Carol. I hope you feel better soon.
No Store for Monroe
After a few months of much anticipation for a new store in Monroe, with signs of coming in august, to coming in autumn, and then no signs. The what was to be named the Monroe Mercantile is not back on the market. Everyone in Brooks is a bit sad for the news.
