Morrill Town News
By Mindy Rowlands
The town clerk's office is open Monday 5-8 p.m., Tuesday noon-8 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m.-noon.
Former Morrill resident and son of Rodene (Littlefield) Brown and Barry Littlefield Sr., Air Force Master Sgt. Barry Littlefield Jr. was recently transferred from Daegu Air Base, Korea, to Creech Air Force Base, Nev., where he now serves as the munitions flight materiel section chief. While at Daegu, Barry was awarded the Air Force Meritorious Service Medal. He finalized the reorganization of munitions activities at four co-located operating bases and streamlined the management of 400 Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) personnel and 266 facilities, located at nine munitions storage areas across the peninsula. Moreover, he evaluated more than 100 inspections performed by ROKAF personnel, clearing an 18-month maintenance backlog and restoring integrity to a $1.7 billion munitions stockpile. Barry has also been selected for promotion to senior master sergeant. Barry and his family are excited to be living in Las Vegas and look forward to the challenges the next few years may bring. Congratulations and best wishes to Barry and his family.
Sunday, March 24, will be Maine’s annual Maple Sunday. It’s a chance to get out and visit one or more of our state’s numerous sugar houses. I just want to let you know that one of Morrill’s sugar houses, Simmons and Daughter’s Sugar House at 261 Weymouth Rd., will be open that day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please come join them to see the boiling process and sample some free ice cream with maple syrup topping. You can also purchase maple syrup, maple candy, maple cotton candy, maple whoopie pies, and many other maple-related items. Last year, the food was unbelievably good and well worth a trip from wherever you may be located.
