There are books coming out that are written by two popular fellers most of us know, John Ford Sr., retired game warden, has "The Cider Still Tastes Funny" and Mark Nickerson, retired Maine state trooper, has "Blue Lights In The Night." Both books are coming out early in May. Now, this will be some interesting reading, and some of us shudder, wondering are they talking about us? Oh, no! Can't wait for them. Both authors are available for interviews.
A potluck will be held March 23 from 1-5 p.m. for Melvin Perkins and Tammy Knowlton at the Community Center on School Street in Unity. They recently lost everything in a fire in Troy.

There is a lot going on, try to attend.
