Hello All,

Here it is another week gone by quick and the leaves are continually flowing down. Some trees are bare here, and we all know what comes next. Trying to get ready for winter. Still veggies at the farm stands. Potatoes, squash, onions, and more. Apples, and cider to buy and pick your own apples.

Anniversaries

Happy fourth anniversary to Jamie Haskell-Spencer and Jason Spencer! Happy 43rd to Mark and Cynthia Raven Potter!

Birthday

Happy 18th birthday to Sydney Vogel!

From the Town Office

Mary Donley says you can license your dogs any time now the office is open. Proof of rabies vaccine required. $6 neutered or spayed. $11 if not fixed. Deadline is Dec. 31.

The food boxes through Neighbor for Neighbor applications are at the Town Office now. Thanksgiving boxes deadline is Nov. 1, I believe, and Christmas later on. I saw an application, but it was an old one so don’t have the deadline dates. WCAP would have info: 338-6809. Don’t delay if you are in need.

Veteran benefits help

Tyler Hadyniak, a veterans disability law attorney in Waldo and Knox counties, will be teaching a course that is a basic, introductory guide to veterans benefits law.  This will help you and also explain what is required to get compensation through the VA. Thursday, Nov. 10, 6:30-8 p.m. No charge to attend, but registration is required by calling Regional School Unit 3 Adult Ed at 568-3426. His grandmother, Sallyann Hadyniak, who has passed on, would be so proud of Tyler.

Knox Superiors

From Coach Liz Cunningham: The Knox Superiors had a great season this year! We would like to thank IWCSL (Inner Waldo County Soccer League) and the Knox Booster Club for their dedicated support of our area youth soccer players! The year-end tournament at Larrabee Field sponsored by the Knox Booster Club was the highlight of our season! It was an impressive day! Out of seven games, we won four, lost two and tied one.

Happy hunting

Youth Hunting Day was Saturday, Oct. 22. Several youth were successful, and others said they are letting their deer fatten up. May your sight be sure, and your shot be true. Time to fill the freezer. Moose hunting has been under way as well. Wear your blaze orange.

Youth deer hunters

Congrats to theses hunters: Carter and Parker Littlefield, sons of Ben, and the late Rachael Curtis, both got their first time deer. Thanks to their Uncle Jeff Curtis. It was a family affair.

Congrats to Aaron Merrifield, son of Heather, who bagged a deer with his great-grandfather Gene Drew.
Grant Garnett also got a deer. I think it’s great the boys all got to hunt.
