I hope everyone had a nice week. The weather is getting better slowly but surely.


The locked gates have been taken down at the Jackson Corner Cemetery. The driveways going in have dried out. Hopefully there will be no more spinning up the roads.

May birthdays

There are a lot of family birthdays this month. Happy birthday to the following family members (hopefully I didn't miss anyone; if I did, I apologize and happy day to you, too): Debbie L. (my daughter-in-law), Flint D., Darci C., Lisa L. (my daughter), Chris L. (my grandson), Mckynzie E., Bob C., and Bo C.

Mother's Day

Just a reminder, don't forget that special mother in your life, be it your mom, mother-in-law, wife or daughter who is a mother, or that special person who is like a mother to you. Just a small gesture makes all the difference in the world to her. Whether you give her chocolate, flowers, a card or simply just give her a phone call, it will mean the world to her.

Happy Mother's Day to all of you mothers out there!

Spring sports

As I put in the column last week, if you have any family members playing spring sports, please let me know. I would love to put their name in the paper. I know of one young lady playing middle school softball, my great-granddaughter, Ella Horton. She is really enjoying it.

Memorial service

According to last week’s Knox news, there will be a memorial service for Alvin Littlefield on Sunday, May 20, at the Jackson Community Center. I apologize, but I do not know the time. I will find out the time before next week.

Monroe Basket Bingo

There will be Basket Bingo held on Sunday, May 20, which is sponsored by the Loyal Rebekah Lodge 92 and the Monoe Lodge 136 IOOF at the Odd Fellow Hall on the Jackson Road in Monroe. There will be bingo games, a 50/50 raffle, door prizes, and a quilt raffle. Doors open at 11 a.m., lunch will be available at 11:30 a.m., and the games start at 1 p.m. Proceeds will help send a youth to camp NEOFA in Montville this summer. Come and enjoy the fun.

Have a wonderful week. Anyone one who is ill, get well soon. Happy birthday to you if you are having a birthday, or have recently have had one. Anyone celebrating an anniversary, have a happy anniversary.

Contact me with any news you would like to share.

Happy Mother's Day to all!
