There as a great turn out for Ed Perry’s service and reception after the service at the Prospect Community Club dining room. Ed and Miriam were well know from the store they operated in Stockton Springs for 33 years. They retired regretfully, as they missed their friends and customers but health issues played a big part in their retirement. A big Thank You to all the people who brought food for the reception. Sarah Bradford of Sandy Point, was instrumental in notifying people in Sandy Point and Stockton Springs about what to bring. It was nice to see the three towns working together for a common goal. Ed was given a good send off and will be missed.
Donnie Cary came home yesterday from the Waldo County Hospital after having a hip replaced . His other one had been recalled. His cats will be happy to see him and everyone knows that you recover usually better at home.. Welcome home Donnie.
Don Hewitt of the Enterprise wrote an article about the Marsh School here in Prospect. He interviewed Carol Johnson and she told about some of the History of the one room school house. Carol serves a the Treasurer of the Club and also has been very much into cataloging all items received. Someday, it is hoped that they will all be displayed in the Marsh School. She has worked tirelessly to get the school renovated and is also a member along with Dee Terry, Lois and Sam Gianni to oversee the up-coming projects. A lot of volunteer work for these people. Thank you.
D.J. Moody and Ruth Helbig, owners of Maddie’s Place atr turning it into a mini Walmart. They now have a big rack out on the deck of propane 20lb. cylinder’s which you can buy outright or exchange for a clean and reusable empty tank. AND THEY STILL ARE ADDING MORE to the store. Keep checking them out.
I had to save this for last-I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it, but I put a newer animal trap on the deck for chipmunks as they were multiplying and taking over the deck. Paul told me that I had one in the trap so I went out and was just bending down to grab the trap by the bail when the chipmunk went THRIUGH the side of the trap and escaped. Thank God I didn’t have him in the car yet as it would have had to go in the back seat-my trunk was full of items for the Yard Sale. I measured the openings on the side and they were 1 inch square. It was a small chipmunk but still it got through. I reset another trap and got another one and this time I put it and the trap in a plastic bag before putting it in the car and then took it where I have taken the rest of his family. Hope they have a good reunion. I was laughing all the way as all I could think of was the song Ray Stevens used to sing “ The day the Squirrel went to Church.”
Weds. we gathered for Coffee Time and it was mostly devoted to unloading Lois’s car and putting stickers on more items for the Yard Sale. Everything is priced low enough so that hopefully we will get rid of it all. Let you know next week.
I want to wish you all a safe and healthy week and please remember those that need a card or a prayer.
