Last week’s windstorm caused the lights to flicker in Frankfort, but that was the overall extent of the 50-55 mph winds’ effect. The wind did manage to knock down the brand new, artificial Christmas tree on the front steps of Frankfort Congregational Church. The tree was set aright and once again shines as a bright spot for motorists passing up and down U.S. Route 1A in town.

The Scottish music concert at Frankfort Congregational Church featuring Wee Dram Pipes & Drums was well-attended and everyone appreciated the music. In addition to traditional Scottish tunes, the band also played Christmas music, as well as a military set. It was nice to see so many people having a good time.

History note

Raids at Frankfort, Bangor Daily News, Dec. 28, 1911:

“Late tonight the Sheriff received word that raids with results had been made on three places and that the officers were on their way back with a wagon load of liquor and two men under arrest and that Deputy White would be there in the morning with a third party. All will be arraigned before Judge Knowlton in the municipal court, Thursday.”

Weekly quote

“When all aloud the wind doth blow,

And coughing drowns the Parson’s saw,

And birds sit brooding in the snow,

And Marion’s nose looks red and raw.” – William Shakespeare
