Voice of Freedom
Gene Phillips, who resided for many years across from the Freedom General Store, is now a resident of the Maine Veterans’ Home on Cony Road in Augusta. He would love to hear from friends and neighbors who knew him, and especially from those in the church that he attended for so many years and loved helping with the monthly suppers.
If you want more information, you can contact his niece, Pat Clark, at 993-2934 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cy Perry is a permanent resident at the St. Joseph Nursing Home in Waterville. I’m sure he also would like to see some visitors and to hear from some of his friends.
Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to get back to our everyday normal living! I hope everyone had the best of holidays and a safe one.
