The Prospect News

Family and Friends gathered at The Maple Grove Cemetery for a graveside service of Margaret Welch, who passed away Oct.7th. Following the service, all were invited to the Prospect Community Club dining room for refreshments an conversation. Margaret was known here in town by many and her passing will leave a big hole in the core of the family. God Bless you all.
The last Baked Bean Supper for the season was Oct.12th. and what a turnout we had. We thought maybe with so many other places having different events, it would be a small turn out for the Supper. Wrong! Thank you to everyone for your support-Miriam Perry and young Ed Perry(hotdogs)—the many people that donated the food and then the reliable crew that waited on table, kitchen work and clean up afterwards. We may have a small re but we work good together.
A couple spoke to me about having a news item about their daughter that they would like to have put in the column-they are regular’s but do not know their names. I hope they read this and get in touch with me at 567-3267. They have a right to be proud.
The Hunter’s Breakfast are going to start Oct.26th. 4-8 AM with the American Legion sponsoring a Breakfast of eggs, bacon, toast, home fries, pancakes, beans and all the coffee you need to get charged up.
The Prospect Community Club will hold their Hunter’s Breakfast Nov. 2nd. 5-9 PM with ham, eggs, OJ, toast, pancakes-plain and blueberry, Baked Beans, donuts and coffee. There will be a 50-50 at the door. Adults-$7.00 and children under 12-$2.00
The Prospect Fire Dept. will hold their Hunter’ s Breakfast, Nov. 23th. 4-8 AM in the dining room with the same menu as the Community Club’s breakfast. 50-50 at the door.
The Prospect Historical Society met Oct. 14th. 7:00 PM in the dining room and it was announced that we only have 4 more windows to be “sold” in the Marsh School. The Storm windows are not made yet but will be by Spring. Dee Terry gave a Presentation about the Heagan Family and the houses that they lived in here in town. The Grant that was submitted by Lois Gianni from Home Depot was turned downed but there is another source that she applied to, so later we will be notified if it was granted. Plan to use any Grant Money we receive will be applied to The Ramp Fund. If interested in buying a window at Marsh School, call Carol Johnson 567-3371 and she will give you the details.
Jack Emack gave a report on the Clark Cemetery that he has been working hard to clean up the cemetery, right up the fallen stones and cutting small trees out there and made a path way in the right of way by a tone fence. He believes that no much more can be done out there but the group thanked him for his dedication to this project. On Weds. after Coffee Time Lois Gianni, Jenn McVeigh, Linda Gamble, Skip McCormick and I went out to the cemetery to take pictures and to marvel over how different it looks now. Thank you very much Jack.
Skip McCormick is a terrific photographer and he took many pictures at the cemetery. If you would like to see some of his work, go to flicker. skipsfotos on line and see how diversified his work is. Thanks Skip.
I submitted a request to Athena cares in the amount of $2500. For the Historical Society and another one for $2500. For the Prospect Concerns Heating Funds. Hope they will see the need for both.
There is now a big box next to the Community Club ramp for collection of bottles and cans to be redeemed for the Heating Fund. We hope the townspeople use it often and Linda Gamble, Jenn McVeigh or myself will take them to the Redemption Center in Bucksport. If you want to take some bottles and cans over yourself, please tell them that it is for the benefit of the Heat Fund and they will put the money into an envelope for that Fund.
Don’t forget to get signed up for L Heap-the number is 1-800-498-3025 or 338-3025. They will tell you what you need to provide for information.
The Prospect Fire Dept. will be handing out goodies Oct.31st. 4-8 PM at the Fire Station. Across the Street, Maddie’s Place will also be having a Party for the Trick or Treaters at the same time. They have a Flyer in the store with all the info about it.
Want to pass on this nutritional tip-when getting up in the middle of the night and think you will have a nosh-turn on the light or move the bag of Cat Treats off the counter. This is a true story-but was requested not to use her name. She didn’t care for the taste so spit them out. We were told this at Coffee Time this past week.
We change our clocks BACK one hour, Nov. 2nd. And then it will dark sooner. Not my favorite time. Wish we could stay on Day Light Saving all year.
I want to wish you all a safe and healthy week and please remember those who need a card or a prayer. God Bless You All.
