Hello All,

Wow, this heat and humidity can leave anytime. It seems it is hot and humid always extremely when we wish for less. Crops are growing, but we welcome rain. My few plants are doing OK. Had some green beans, broccoli and cauliflower given to me. Love the fresh veggies.

Visitors from Florida

Mr. and Mrs. Jim Berry were recent visitors of Meredith Murch, and she hadn’t seen him for 28 years. Also visited with Tom Berry as well. They were in Maine for two weeks. Jim was from Morrill in his early years. It was a very pleasant surprise visit.

In town

Sarah Ingraham from Colorado is in town visiting family and friends.

New sign; barbecue

The Legion Post 50 in Unity has erected a new sign and it looks very nice at the end of the driveway on Windemere Lane. I saw it recently, very nice and much-needed. Thanks to all who made it happen.

Also, congrats on the SAL that was recently active after many years. Always need the help and support from all. The Ladies Auxiliary is active, too. A barbecue will be hosted on Saturday, Aug. 13, 12 noon. Ladies will have a yard sale at 11 a.m. Please check this out.
