Happy Silver Anniversary to my son Chuck and my daughter- in- law Lynn who celebrated their 25th Silver Wedding Anniversary last week by going on a boat trip out of Booth Bay Harbor which sailed them with others to an island and had dinner consisting of lobster and all trimmings.  The boat held 98 people, two couples of which celebrated their 50th and 33rd. anniversary.

A good time was had by all and on the following day, the family celebrated the happy occasion together.  Many more happy and healthy years  together are wished for you both,

Grandparents Day:

On Sunday, September 7 please remember “Grandparent’s Day”  It’s the day that we try to visit, go out to eat, give some gifts, or just spend time together enjoying each other’s company.  It’s also a special day to remember those that are gone by visiting their gravesites if possible.  At any rate, enjoy the day with those you love.


The Historical Society will meet at the home of Viola Greeley on Wednesday September 10 starting at 7:00 p.m.  Members of the cemetery are welcome to attend (Cindy, Erna, Steve and Kim etc.)

Freedom Recreational Committee:

The Freedom Recreational Committee is trying to improve our little league baseball complex by adding a new announcers booth/ storage shed (also if possible new bleachers for the ball diamond.) This would be located behind the backstop of the baseball field behind Freedom Town Office-71 Pleasant Street Freedom Maine (Mitchell Field). We are a nonprofit organization.

We have redone our ball field and have been working on the playground with several new improvements and pieces of equipment such as swings, sand box, teeter totter, dome climber, 3 new picnic tables along with a new Gazebo. We now also have walking paths that have been built and we are working on more

We will be having all volunteers working together to build this as a community for our little league/farm team/Old Mill School/all of our area kids.

We are looking to see if any of our town vendors/citizens would be interested in making a donation to help us out. We have a small group trying to raise money for this project. We are also trying to get the materials donated to keep our cost down.

Any donation would be greatly appreciated.

Any donation is tax deductible and we will give you a receipt. Please give us your company name, address & phone number (business card if you have one) this info will be used on our sponsorship wall with plaques…

Our address is Town of Freedom, 71 Pleasant Street, Freedom Maine 04941 or you can call Cindy @ 207-382-6177 or Erna @ 207-382-617 Thank You for your support…

The Kennebec Valley Chordsmen

They will be putting on their 42nd annual show Sept. 27 at the Waterville Opera House; 2:00 P.M. This year there is only one show. Tickets, $15.00, (students though high school at no charge) may be purchased from any member, at the Opera Hose the day of the show or by contacting the Opera House beforehand .Locally tickets can be purchased from Dave Bridges, 382-6221, or Galen Larrabee, 568-3538. And let them know if you want to put an ad for your business in the program for the show. They will be happy to oblige.

The Chordsmen is a barbershop harmony chorus of roughly 30 men ranging in age from teenagers to octogenarians who love to sing barbershop. The chorus will perform along with 4 quartets and the highly acclaimed Mount View Singers from Mount View High School under the direction of Dr. David Stevenson who in the past directed the Chordsmen for 18 years as well.  It is a great way to enjoy a fall afternoon of music, and after the show the audience may join the singers for refreshments and more songs at the afterglow.

For more information about the Chordsmen go to on the web.

Voice of Freedom:


It’s been a quiet week except for the fact that my grandson Tyler, his girlfriend Jamie and I took a trip to Mass. to see Tony Bennett in Concert at Tanglewood   This was Tyler’s third time seeing him, Jamie’s second and my third time.  I saw him three years ago at Atlantic City in Jersey and he was great, and three years later at the age of 88 he is still great and still has what it takes.


That’s it for now folks, have a good and safe time until next week.
