Another weekend with summer weather and some rain, but gardens seem to be growing nicely.

I think Bill Sneed deserves a big thank-you for years ago steering us away from the new Fiberight trash plant that was going to be God’s answer to our trash removal at a decent price. Well, we all know what is going on up there. Nothing but ideas have been brought up and one idea was to have the towns involved spend more money. That would be scary and costly. Thanks, people, for believing in him.

On Sunday, July 17, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Jack Emack and I will host an Open House at the Historical Building so people can see the many new improvements made, new donations, try to answer questions for locating ancestors and town history. A portable toilet is available for the summer for the different events that will be held there.

Prospect is growing as there are three places on Ward Road under development, two places on Route  174 being developed, a new house has been placed on its foundation down by the south line of the town limit, plus four houses for sale in the immediate area. Welcome, all, to a great town and hope to meet you someday!

Comprehensive planning meetings are on going every other Tuesday night, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.; next one will be July 19. They welcome people to join them.

The Historical Society has its meetings the second Sunday of each month at 2 p.m. Refreshments are served.

Bill Swift has returned home after several years working on all over the country. Welcome back, Bill.

Remember the Town Picnic Aug. 20. Bring a picnic lunch and a chair. Starts at 11 a.m. til when.

The Town of Prospect municipal officers will hold a public meeting Thursday, July 21, 5 p.m. in the Community Building, 959 Bangor Road, to hear comments regarding town of Prospect’s Remote Participation Policy. Copies in Town Office.

Remember the American Legion Yard Sale Aug. 6 and 7, where they have bargains galore, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the 6th and on the 7th it will end at 2 p.m.

Re-enactment will be held at Fort Knox this weekend, July 15, 16 and 17, and Wizard’s Day will be July 29. More later.

Have a good week.
