Sympathy is being extended to the family and friends of Ron Cropley. He was an amazing man and will be missed.

Have you been to the gift shop on Depot Street, Thorndike? They have floral arrangements and gift items. It is at 29 Depot St. in Thorndike village. They are open Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. The shop is called My Sister and I. Also, I believe they are giving away a free prayer bear with purchase of an arrangement. Stop in and say hello. There are lots of things to look at and lots of good conversation available.

The Unity Area Regional Recycling Center will be closed Dec. 24-26 for Christmas and they will also be closed Dec. 31-Jan. 2, 2021, for New Year's.

Do not forget about the boxes being filled at the Thorndike Town Office. One is for new, unwrapped toys and the other is for gently used pieces of warm clothing and also toys that have been gently used. There are many children who can use some warm winter clothes. I am getting my donation together to drop off.

Groucho Marx is quoted as saying, "Time flies like an arrow, but fruit flies like a banana."

Have a great week and enjoy the birds at the feeder.
