Hello All,

The weather has been fairly warm for November. Some deer hunters are having luck. Tagging out for the little ones were Lainey St. Clair, 6 years old, a  6-point, 158-lb. buck. Daughter of Josh and Macy St. Clair. Ryan Larrabee, son of Jen and Derek Larrabee, also shot a buck. Congrats, kids!

Joycelyn Thompson, daughter of Fred and Cassandra Thompson, shot her first deer, a 145-lb. doe. Congrats! Destinee Doughty had been sitting with her dad Darren in their tree house stand. It’s a building and pretty neat. Weather being warm I’m glad they had good luck.

Those yummy doughnuts

The Saturday doughnuts at the Amish Community Store will end on Nov. 19 until spring. Wednesday doughnuts are still available weekly. Starting on Nov. 25, new winter hours. Open every day but Thursday and Sunday, 8 a.m.- 4 p.m. Get there early before they sell out.

Bake Sale

With pies being in mind and other baked goodies. The Dirigo Grange in Freedom will have their Bake Sale on Saturday, Nov. 19, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. I received a phone call from Kay, and thank her.

Anyone or group wishing to help the veterans, the gift shops for all the veterans homes and Togus need funds for gifts for Christmas. Call me for info if you wish.

Birthday party

Veteran Roy Ward, 103 years old, formerly of Freedom, and now at the Bangor Veterans Home, celebrated with family and friends on Saturday, Nov. 12. He turned a remarkable 103 on Veterans Day, Nov. 11. He received many cards. Thanks to all that sent him cards or went to his party. He loved it.

Following Isaiah’s Journey

Many of us have been following on Facebook the Walk Across America of a young man, Isaiah Glen Shields. He started in Utah, then on to the West Coast, Washington State, and walked to Lubec, Maine, his last 6.2 miles on Sunday morning, reaching the West Quoddy lighthouse in Lubec 497 days, 18 months, 8,614 miles.

He met many people, took beautiful scenery pictures and just whatever made him happy. He left his corporate job to do this adventure. It was amazing to read his posts and see his videos. People along the way invited him in to spend nights and feed him as he pushed his cart long with his supplies, tent, and needed cameras. He stayed mostly in his tent. Stay tuned for more on him. He’s driving back home to Utah. He will have a book out of his trip.

Until next week, enjoy our weather for now before winter hits. The rain was welcome. Be kind whatever you do. Stay safe.

Good things come to those who wait. Better things come to those who don’t give up. And the best things come to those who always believe.
