Happy birthday Stephanie Charette on Oct. 7. Hope you you have a really great day!

Mark your calendars

University of Maine Cooperative Extension in Waldo County is holding a 4-H auction and bake sale, on Saturday, Oct. 20. Preview is at noon and the auction will start at 1 p.m. at the Mount View High School Cafeteria, 577 Mount View Road, Thorndike. All proceeds support Waldo County 4-H scholarships and programs. Numerous Waldo County businesses and individuals generously donated to make the auction possible.

The community auction is the largest annual fundraiser of the Waldo County 4-H Leaders Association, which supports county 4-H youth programming and offers full and partial scholarships for youth citizenship programs (citizenship Washington Focus), National 4-H events and more.

Mark Bradstreet of Downeast Auctions will be the auctioneer this year. Be sure to buy Golden Paddle raffle tickets, participate in the mystery box gift silent auction, savor baked good items, and bid on local products, services and homemade pies.

What a great way to have some fun shopping for special gifts or treat yourself while supporting 4-H youth here in Waldo County! Public previews of auction items are available online at http://extension.umaine.edu/waldo/programs/4h/auction.

For more information or to request a disability accommodation, contact Joyce Weaver at 342-5971 or joyce.weaver@maine.edu.

Get well wishes

Raelene Fuller, my sister, had an operation Sept. 24. Get well soon and hope your recovery goes great and you're back on your feet in no time.

I hope all of you are enjoying your time with your family and friends. Remember to tell them you love them each and every day. You never know what is going to happen from one day to the next.

Have a wonderful week.
