Hello, Everyone.

Another nice fall day. Leaves are turning to pretty shades of color now. I just dread the cold coming. It’s Maine; I’ll take it though. Always good to hear from folks calling or emailing me, thanks. Got some more corn, and beans recently, and apples, too. Apple crisp is pretty good stuff.

Had a chance to stop at the Lavender Farm before they closed for the season on Sunday.

Chicken Barbecue

There will be a Chicken Barbecue at the  Legion Hall, Windemere Lane, Saturday, Oct. 16, noon until gone. Hosted by the 40/8 Group to benefit the Nursing Education and Scholarships. Half a chicken, potato salad, roll, dessert and bottle of water, $10 each. Come and have some chicken.


Thinking of the family of Arthur Riley Sr. He lived in Texas, and lived here in Knox many years ago.

Another life lost was John D. Merrifield who passed recently. Condolences to all.

Our condolences to the family of Gladys Holmes who passed away Saturday. She was a life-long resident of town. She will be missed.

Sympathy also to the family of Ida Sherwood Higgins who passed away Saturday.


Emerson Doughty, who passed away in January, was buried at East Knox Cemetery Sunday with family and friends attending.

Freedom Academy pictures

Sally Luce has several senior class photos she’d like to get to the families of the following people I will list on here. Class of 1953, Elinor Corey, Lucy Shaw, Donald Maxim and Clayton Giggey. Class of 1955, Stanley Blood, Clive McDonald, Edith Condon, Carolyn Cates, Mae Peppard, Delta Fowler, Roger Drew, Roger Reynolds, Hurley Larrabee and Robert Raven. Please call her at 487-1658 to get a photo.

Belated birthday

Happy 91st birthday to Ethel Tibbetts. She lives at Leisure Homes. I hope she had a nice day.

Child care

Brianna Lynn Wren has a couple of openings for child care in Brooks. She has experience. Degree in early childhood. Highly recommended.


Happy 21st anniversary to Robert and Pamela Wlodyka!!! May you have many more.


Palmer Hill Farms has raw milk for sale. This would go good with the homemade doughnuts from the Amish Community Store on Saturday mornings. They have doughnuts on Wednesdays, too, and other pastries. Doughnuts sell out by 11 a.m. Need to get there early. Open 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

Hunting time

Zach Nickerson got his moose. Jordan Wooldridge got his moose, too. (Both were big bulls.) Some people have been bear hunting and bird hunting. It is the season. Wear orange if you go out walking, need to be safe. The leaves are getting their bright colors up north and looking good here, too.

Unity Pond Ice Ovals event

Sunday, Oct. 24, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.: Post Season Show and Shine, Swap Meet and Pre-Tech at Brown’s Racing, 1122 Dixmont Road, Etna. Catering by Derek Mingo’s smoked meats and barbecue. RSVP to 930-5353 so they know how much food to prepare. Get ready for your racing days!

Wreaths Across America

I ordered the yearly wreaths for Lt. Col. Clair Thurston Sr., and Clair Thurston Jr. for West Point Cemetery. Agnes, a nurse during war time, is also buried there, too. All three of them in New York. They have plots in Freedom at Pleasant Hill Cemetery, but I decided to see if our committee would remember them where they are actually buried. We have done the wreaths for several years now. If anyone wants a wreath, go to and order.

Until next time,

Keep safe, all. Hope you can keep warm. If eligible, sign up for HEAP 338-3025 for help with fuel for winter. If eligible, also heat pumps are available, 338-6809. The applications for the Thanksgiving meals and Christmas meals are ready, but Knox has none yet. (People for People).

Get some fresh veggies that are still available. Heald Farm had pumpkins, squash, potatoes, tomatoes, and corn among other veggies.
