My sincere condolences are being sent to the family and friends of Bob Ferreira. He was a good man and will be missed by many.

A big thank you to Raven's Garage for always taking care of our vehicles in a timely manner. You guys are much appreciated by Dustin and I.

Do not forget about the annual Strawberry Festival hosted by the Dirigo Grange in Freedom on Saturday, June 29, 4:30 to 6 p.m. This will be $8 per person and they will also have fresh-picked strawberries on sale. Support your local Grange.

It sounds like a good time will be had at the Unity Raceway on Saturday, June 29, beginning at 8 p.m., with the tribute band "Back in Black" performing.

Between the rain and the sunshine, it is nearly impossible to keep up with mowing and other yard work. Rainy days are good for cleaning closets and bureaus and taking things to the Varney Thrift Store in Brooks. They are open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. A great place to stretch those dollars and help the church ladies at the same time.

A very happy birthday wish is being sent to Warren Moody. Happy 90th, Warren.

Bob Hope is quoted as saying, "A bank is a place that will lend you money if you can prove that you don't need it."

Have a great week and hope that we have much sunshine to enjoy.
