I managed to get one mess of greens dug before they went by. Seems like they were gone by in no time. I love the greens, but my back won't cooperate with me to dig them. I also have to get them before my sister in law JoAnne  tackles them with the lawn mower.

Please read the Freedom Town news article Sally submitted about our future work on the Pleasant Hill Cemetery in Freedom. As I am Clerk of the Association, from time to time I write the news about it too. The " Italian Spaghetti Feast " Kim Holmes and committee is planning sounds so delicious. This is a Public Benefit Supper. Sadly, I will be in Bangor for our American Legion and Auxiliary  Convention  that weekend, and not able to help her. Please support the supper.
