Freedom Town News
There is something funny about having 5 Friday’s in one month! There isn’t very much going on this coming week so I will wing it!
First of all, I would like to add a correction regarding the Selectmen’s Meeting that was printed to be held October 21. I guess I was getting a little ahead of myself. The following is a correction. The next scheduled meeting for the Selectmen will be held on Monday October 7 at the Town Office starting at 6:00 p.m.
On Saturday, September 28 the Freedom Volunteer Department will be doing a control burn behind the church in Knox. All volunteers are to meet at the fire house no later then 7:00 A.M.
The Dirigo Grange will hold their meeting on Thursday, October 3 at the Grange Hall starting at 7:30 p.m.

The hall is Handicap Accessible via back door and all proceeds benefit church project.
The men and women who have volunteered all season worked very hard and certainly put out a wonderful meal and dessert for such a small amount per adult and children. If you want the best of food and desserts, very very reasonable, come on out to the supper with your family and meet your friends and neighbors.
The Kennebec Valley Chordsmen is putting on their annual show October 5, starting at 7:00 p.m. at the Waterville Opera House. Tickets are available from any member of the chorus and at the door the night of the show. It is open seating so get there in plenty of time to choose your best seat.
The show will consist of the Chordsmen performing two sets of barbershop harmony songs. There will be three barbershop quartets performing as well as the Mount View Singers from Thorndike. The Chordsmen and the Mt. View Singers are under the direction of the renowned Dr. David Stevenson.
It was reported the telephones were down at the Town Office and to go to the community/websites. As of this writing only one line is open. Please be patient and sorry for the inconvenience. The lines were hit by lightening twice.
Joy to Be Bald Fundraiser:
Carl Moody is participating in the "Joy to Be Bald" benefit this year in Liberty, October 6.
Carl Moody will have his head shaved this year in the 4th annual event "Joy to Be Bald" Fundraiser. This event will take place on October 6 at Lori's Café in Liberty. This is a huge fund raiser and is held each year benefit someone fighting cancer. (Wouldn't it be great if there was "no one" who needed this?).
The benefit kicks off at 2 p.m. with a fun walk, B-B-Q (Liberty Fire Dept. Volunteers), including a fun house. At 4:30 P.M. that day, several people, who have worked very hard to gather pledges, will have their heads shaved to honor these pledges.
Carl is doing this to honor his many friends and family members who have waged and are waging a battle against cancer.
TV Channel 5 will be there again this year to broadcast this huge event! Those of you, who live in this area, please come and participate in this event. Yes, we will have pictures!
If you wish to sponsor Carl, please contact him at: Brendan Carl @yahoo.com or help him with his pledges by sending a contribution to:

And, yes, a friend has volunteered to knit Carl a cap!
Voice of Freedom:
Sto;; no word regarding "Dakota" the missing collie!
Football: Mt. View will be playing away tonight in Pittsfield starting at 7:00 p.m. Our team is doing quite well and I urge all you football fans to go out and enjoy and night of football under the lights. Go Mustangs!
Nights are getting darker earlier, leaves are beginning to turn, smoke is coming out of some chimneys, and wood piles are seen waiting to be stacked for the long cold winter that will be upon us soon. This is a wonderful time of the year! Autumn is so refreshing, the cool crisp air and the kick off to up and coming holidays, such as Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. I’m not trying to rush the season, but come on, I’m sure everyone will agree that time is flying by quickly. Most of the canning is completed by the women folk of the town and they and their families will soon begin to reap the harvest of their hard work and enjoy grown fruits and veggies.
I hope everyone has a great week, stay well, safe and be kind to your neighbor!
