Deepest sympathy goes to the family of Norma Littlefield who passed away on Saturday, March 16. Norma lived in Morrill for a very long time before moving to a smaller home in Belfast.

Our deepest sympathy goes to the family of Smitty (Lawrence) Smith on Saturday, March 16. His wife is Janie Smith.

We are going to miss you both dearly. I've know both of them all my life; I'm surely going to miss seeing you both in town.

Town meeting

March 16th was the town meeting. They had a really good turnout. State Rep.
