Lupine Cottage

Margaret Masessa has this Cottage with two stories that houses a working co-op with 65 Maine artists and craftspeople and 50 businesses involved. She recently had her official 16th year season opening. There are all kinds of things available to purchase.

She offers classes in the winter. She has taught a lot of people to knit, and sells her famous sox. She recently had a porch built, and has spaces for her artists. This is Margaret's retirement dream. She is located in East Belfast on Route 1. Come check her out.

Another person to go visit is Gail Moulton Quimby, who is selling the famous fudge at Perry's Nut House. Yum.

Montville Field Day

Knox Bicentennial Day

The day was a success. There are still T-shirts and Knox History Books for sale from the day at the Town Office. And don't forget wooden nickels, too. It was fun, and the Chicken Barbecue by Freedom Fire Department was good.

Veggies, etc.

I got some pickling cucumbers from Mark at Heald Farm so I made pickles, and ate several. I love cukes. His summer and zucchini squash were very good as well. He has potatoes, broccoli and more. I hope all are enjoying our weather, and summertime. Some have been kayaking at Freedom Pond and Sanborn. I saw several ATVs arrive at UHOP last night. That looked like a lot of fun as a group, and to get to eat pizza and whatever there. Some folks were from town.


On Tuesday, July 30, at 11:30 a.m. our Reunion committee will be meeting at the Red Barn in Augusta on Route 201. If you wish to join in, just show up. Anyone wanting to attend the Alumni Reunion at MVHS on Aug. 18, let us know for a registration letter, as we need to know if you will be having lunch with us. Jamie Dodge Robie will be speaking to us. She hopes to see her Mount View classmates.

Until next week,

May you all have a safe and happy week. It is swimming pool time I am told. Have fun. Hello to the three guys.
