Until Next Week,

Take care everyone. The weather has been better for a few days this week. The Joe-4-Oil Program is still on. Good Luck getting through to them. The lines are always very busy. Keep trying, be patient. Tena Keller's book is still available. I have mailed a few to people wanting them. My address is 194 Morse Rd., Knox 04986. Her book is a very good book to read. I really enjoyed it. School vacation is over. We have had a lot of snow, but the rain lowered it down, although the sliding, and snowmen were plentiful. Get Well to Joyce Thompson who has had a bad cold. Get better soon.

Lori's Daycare

They have had the cutest snow sculptures there. The Loch  Ness Monster, and the Ninja Turtles. Lori and Kayla sure are talented playing in the snow with the kiddos. I saw them on Facebook. Good job Ladies.


Congratulations are in order, Thelma Leimers, 97 years young, received the Boston Post Cane, and a Plaque from the Town of Brooks, where she resides and being the oldest citizen. That is an honor. Congrats Thelma.
