They say it takes a village to raise a child. Well, it also takes one to put on a successful Library Sale. Many thanks to the numerous volunteers who helped with this year’s sale, from those who donated books, bake sale, auction or yard sale items, to those who lugged boxes and boxes of books, set up displays in all areas of the sale, manned the cashiers’ tables, and helped clean up. It sounds trite and often repeated, but it is true – we couldn’t do it without YOU! Thank you. We also want to acknowledge and thank those who attended and spent their hard-earned money to support the Library. Thank you for making it all worthwhile.
Bicentennial Week is Finally Here
All week long, Searsmont artist Stephen Porter’s Bicentennial Bench and historical displays are free to the public at the town office and Community Building, and bicentennial items (including baseball caps and t-shirts) are on sale at the office, the town library, and Fraternity Village Store. The store also features a pamphlet on the store’s long history, and a display of local students’ art illustrating the famous 1800’s diary of Searsmont’s Josephine Knight.
Five in the afternoon is when the music starts, the Searsmont Historical Society’s pig roast servers get to work, and the Searsmont Methodist Church’s lobster feed begins. As always, dinners are affordable. It’s only $12 for adults, $6 for kids at the pig roast, $6 for a lobster to go or an extra lobster. But there won’t be many tickets available at the door. Make your reservations by calling Nancy at 930-3664 or Karen at 342-3427, or go online at email@example.com to do the same.
That’s a lot of information, but it only happens once every 200 years. I’ll give you a Bicentennial Day update next week, and make sure you know all the people who have made the Bicentennial Year, Bicentennial Week, and Bicentennial Day a success In the meantime, if you need more information, go to the town’s Community/Bicentennial page at www.searsmont.com, or call the Town Office at 342-5411.
