Voice of Freedom

Clara Fales has a daughter who was born and raised in Freedom. Clara is now proud to announce that Natalie will be inducted into the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society on April 27. She currently has her Bachelor’s in nursing, obtained from Saint Joseph’s college of Maine. It is a great honor to be part of this national honor society because you must be selected for high academic excellence, rank in the top 35% of graduating class and meet the expectation of academic excellence. Natalie will graduate in July with her graduate degree. She currently has a 4.0 GPA. She is a nurse leader for a primary care office and lives with her husband and two children in Winterport. She hopes to continue her career in executive nursing administration.

Also, Drew is expected to be home on Friday. Good news all around.

Freedom Rec. Committee

The Freedom Rec. Committee is happy to announce that their Easter Party with Mr. Drew and His Animals Too was a huge success! It was a free community event and both old and young enjoyed it. There were free raffles for a boy, girl and baby's Easter basket, one for a two-wheeler bike with training wheels, a candy basket, guess the amount of M&M’s, egg hunt, free pictures with Peter Rabbit, crafts, refreshments, drinks, and a wonderful performance given by Mr. Drew. It was also educational.

Pictures are online and can be seen on the Freedom Booster and Rec. page on Facebook, and my Facebook page (Sallyann Muchie Hadyniak). The committee consists of a very small handful of people and I just want to add a special “Thank You” to all the girls, but namely Lisa, who was the leader of the pack. A lot of work needs to be done behind the scenes to put on any of our events, and it’s because we all work together that makes it possible.

Swearing in

My grandson Tyler is going to be sworn in by the chief judge of the United States District Court for the District of Maine who is Jon D. Levy and former Justice of the Maine Supreme Court on Monday, April 29, in Portland. He will then hold the title of Tyler C. Hadyniak, Esq. Good luck, Tyler, and congratulations!
