Sympathy is extended to the family of Marian (Brown) Hood of Heagan Mt. Road. Her daughter and son in law Lorraine and Peter Tripp have been staying with her. Marian was a “Prospecter” for many years and came from a big family and now there is only one brother left of the original family. May you now rest in Peace and join the rest of your family.
Also, Marjorie Maddocks passed away in a Belfast Nursing Home. She and her family were members of Prospect many years ago. Marjorie was a Nurse at Waldo County Hospital for many years and took care of several people from this town. Sympathy is extended to her family also.

I went to our Granddaughter, Sarah Sutherland graduation from Husson College in Bangor on Mother’s Day. She studied Physical Therapy and graduated com laude and will start her Clinical training this summer for 6 weeks in Bucksport then 6 weeks in Blue Hill before returning to Husson for another 2 years to continue her education and goal of becoming a Doctor. We wish her luck in her career. She is the daughter of Lisa and Dwayne Sutherland of Bucksport.
The Baltimore Orioles’ only stayed around for 3 or 4 days and have now left. I guess there were no females around here so they went looking else where but the Humming Birds have appeared at everyone’s feeders and feeding constantly. Spring is wonderful when trees start budding out and the birds return.
I want to wish you all a safe and healthy week and please remember those that need a card or a prayer. God Bless you all.
