Waldo Town News
By Tom Seymour
Autumn began this past Saturday, Sept. 22. Happy fall.
Kelly Jacobs writes that the Waldo Community Boosters will host a public Harvest Supper on Saturday, Oct. 13, at the Waldo Town Hall from 4-6 p.m. The menu includes roast pork and gravy, potato, corn, squash, yeast rolls and homemade desserts. Also, a fire truck will be available at the site so that people can have a close look at it. Kelly says to bring the kids for a tour.
I recently celebrated my 65th birthday by going to Angler’s Restaurant in Searsport with my friend John Avener of Montville. We managed to find a quiet nook, something not always possible at that busy place. We enjoyed both the food and the company.
Sherry and Rodger Littlefield, who live in Brooks just a few feet from the Waldo town line, have kept me in giant puffball mushrooms for the last month. These huge white mushrooms grow in great profusion on the Littlefields' lawn.
Since this issue of The Republican Journal comes out on Thursday, Sept. 27, that means there are only four days, including Thursday, left for lake and pond fishing for trout, togue and salmon. So despite its not being the absolute best time to fish, according to my lights, it is the last fling of the year. So get out and have at it. Of course, fishing for other species will continue throughout the fall, but as of October, I will suspend my Perchin’ Prediction and begin with the Pa’tridge Prediction. Stay tuned.
Finally, despite the heavy rains of last week, dirt roads in town remain in relatively good shape and to my knowledge, have not suffered washouts or developed too many new potholes. The recent grading seems to have had a salutary effect, thank goodness.
