    stellapearl320@gmail.com 323-2324 Greetings all. I hope everyone is well and on their way to being vaccinated. A few reminders: I still need your news in order to submit a column each week. The information needs to be given a week in advance as the column appears the following Thursday. To that end, several events will have already occurred by the time you read this. April 24th was a clean-up day at the Community …

    stellapearl320@gmail.com Greetings. As you read this, St. Patrick’s Day will have come and gone (had some excellent corned beef and cabbage — which is not really Irish), Ralph’s Cafe has opened for the season and the vernal equinox (spring) arrives on the 20th. The days are growing longer and I saw a red-winged blackbird. Now I need to share something very important: “Everyone hates Mondays. Garfield made a …

    323-9347 stellapearl320@gmail.com Greetings, lovelies. Despite the weather, it’s time to emerge from hibernation. Things are starting to look up. Reminder: The Brooks town meeting will be held in May this year, NOT March. The Marsh River Theatre Board met recently (via Zoom) to discuss a possible 2021 season. That presents many issues related to COVID. As you can imagine, performances need to be planned well in …

    207-323-9347 stellapearl320@gmail.com Greetings. By the time you read this, it will be March. As I write it, there are only 22 days until spring! The Town Meeting will be held May 4 at 6:30 p.m., place to be announced. Looks like Ralph’s Cafe will re-open March 19 with a lot of upgrades (espresso, anyone?). Watch this space for more information. The Waldo County Technical Center is renting out its sound studio at …

    323-9347 stellapearl320@gmail.com Finally…we have some news (aside from 2021, COVID-19, the Capitol insurrection, the inauguration, Groundhog Day, second impeachment, etc.). As you may already know, Brooks has an 8-acre park that was recently deeded to the town. While the park has been neglected for a number of years, it has tremendous potential. The Brooks Recreation Department has plans to bring it back to …

    stellapearl320@gmail.com 323-9347 Greetings all. This will be rather short. I’m sure you all are busy (as am I) with cleaning, decorating, baking, meal planning, buying/making gifts and so on. I managed to get five Christmas trees up and decorated. Trying to see if I can get the Dickens’ Village displayed or not. And it’s just the two of us (plus the menagerie). Christmas is sure to be quite different this year …

    323-9347 stellapearl320@gmail.com Hello everyone. Hope you all are well. Hooray — we’ve had our first snow! I love it, but I need to share some information with you. Our mailboxes are allowed to be curbside as a courtesy, and keep in mind that your plow driver is often working in low-visibility conditions on long shifts. Here are some reminders from the Town Office and selectmen: There is a state law (29MRSA2396) …

    stellapearl320@gmail.com 323-9347 Greetings. And just like that…it’s December. Thanksgiving has come and gone, and for most, it was probably quite different this year. We really missed the community dinner and compensated by making a full, traditional meal at home. It took the two of us an entire week to finish off the leftovers. We’ve been getting into Christmas preparations. Thanks to the unseasonably warm …

    stellapearl320@gmail.com 323-9347 Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you enjoy the day. And now for some fun, Thanksgiving trivia: – The first Thanksgiving (1621) was a three-day affair — so much food. – Colonists and Native Americans probably did not have turkey at their feast. Venison, lobster, swan and seal anyone? – Thomas Jefferson refused to declare Thanksgiving a holiday because he firmly believed in the separation…
