Benefit supper for burnt-out family
Mike Ellis and his extended family of Stockton Springs were the victims of a fire right after Christmas. They have lost all their belongings and they and their children are having a rough go of it. A benefit supper will be held at The Improved Order of Redmen Hall at 153 Main St. in Belfast. The supper will be Feb. 8 from 5 to 7 p.m. A donation of $6 for adults and $3 for kids under 12 will be appreciated.
On a personal note
It is now ice fishing season, but because of our warmer-than-usual start to winter, most bodies of water are not yet safe. So, please use caution when checking the ice to see if you can fish and be safe on the snowmobile trails. Keep a watch for snowshoe users as well as cross-country skiers. Be safe on your snowmobiles and make sure not to drink before heading out to enjoy the winter activities that are available to all us.
