Hello to all my readers,

How are you enjoying these nice warm days? Would love to hear from you on anything that is going on with your events, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Hope you all have a awesome week!

Our deepest sympathy goes out to the families of Errol Littlefield, Robert Hills and Cleo Alley, who have recently passed away.

Happy birthday to Carol Place Larrabee on Nov. 11, Diana Pease on Nov. 15 and Harper Reynolds on Nov. 16.

Fire Department notes

The winner of the Morrill Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary raffle is Stephen Powers of Appleton. Congratulations, Stephen, and thank you to all who supported our rifle raffle. This fundraiser was a great success. These monies are used for Santa’s annual visit, as well as for the purchase of new equipment for the fire department.

Three department members recently completed a basic fire pumps operation course hosted at the Liberty Fire Department for county firefighters. Our members who completed the course were Lt. Haley Norris and firefighters Lee Pellecchia and Tom Fish. Thank you for taking the time to improve your skills.

On Oct. 21, we were called out to assist Searsmont in battling a structure fire on Main Street. This fire was knocked down quickly because of the quick response of many area departments. Morrill responded with Tanker 35 and Engine 32 and a total of six firefighters. Not a bad response for a daytime call. Four of our members were called upon to use the SCBA (self-contained breathing apparatus) to assist at this fire.

Remember, the Ladies Auxiliary needs new members, as does the Fire Department. The Auxiliary
meets only four or five times a year as well as hosting Santa’s annual visit. Contact Mindy Rowlands for
more information.

If you did not do it when you changed the time on your clocks, please take the time to test your smoke
detectors. Vacuum them and replace batteries with new ones. The old batteries may still have life. Set them aside for toys or other less important items. A working smoke detector can save your life.

Be safe. — Jethro Pease

Until next week, be safe and kind to each other.
