The Prospect Memorial Day parade took place on Monday May 27. I unfortunately could not attend but those that did, say it was a very good time. The parade featured marching veterans, Boston Post Cane recipient Vivian Smart riding in a Camero as grand marshal, fire trucks from Prospect, Stockton, Orland and Frankfort, Sen. Erin Herbig and family, and miniature 18-wheelers featuring advertisements for local businesses. Note that Vivian just had a birthday — she turned 92 on May 15.

At the memorial service Max Provencher, a freshman at Searsport District High School, did an excellent job in place of Linda Gamble as master of ceremonies.

Rep. Sherman Hutchins presented retired Selectmen Diane Terry with a Legislative Sentiment recognizing her years of service with the town of Prospect. Jill was able to record the event and it is posted to our Facebook page:

Diane was semi-surprised, as the tribute remained fairly secretive up until a little before the service. Rep. Hutchins had introduced the tribute in the House and Sen. Herbig sponsored it in the Senate.

At the Fire Department cookout, around 125 people were served, and the Fire Department thanks all who donated.

The next community supper will be on Saturday, June 8, from 4 to 6 p.m. The price is still $8 for adults and $2 for children.

The Regional School Unit 25 budget election will be Tuesday, June 11. We will not have any state or federal ballots for this election. The polls will be open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Town Office. Typically the RSU ballot is a simple yes to accept or no to reject the budget.
