Knox Boosters Club

The crew will be meeting on Aug. 17th to install the wiring for the new lights at Larrabee Field in town. This will help to make lighting so to have games at night. It is most welcomed. Good Job raising the funds for this big project.

Knox Historical Society

If you have gone by the old East Knox School near Shirley Bessey's home you will see that the old school is getting a new coat of paint. It is looking better all the time. Patience is the answer I believe for this project. Mary Ellen has been there as well.

Tarring Project

They are working on tarring Rt. 220 from Knox to Unity. It sure is getting better. All the places that have new tar is great, it sure was needed.

To My Friend Deb,

Thanks for taking the time to read my news column to your friends. I hope they enjoy the news.

Avian Haven

They have been rehabilitating all different  kinds of birds. They have had eagles too. I never realized how many birds they wean back to health. What a great job they do. I wish  I could show you folks all the pictures of them as they have recently been released. I have had the pleasure of seeing them on Facebook.

Curra's Farm Stand

There are many kinds of Veggies to chose from this weekend. Fresh Wild Blueberries available. Come see Joyce.

There is not much news to report this week. I got to attend the Belfast Summer Music at the Street Party on Monday night. I especially wanted to hear Don Nickerson of the Country Mist Band. There was a big crowd there. Everyone was having a great time.

Until Next Week,

We have had thunder storms, and lots of rain, and then the sun would shine. I guess the gardens needed water. Enjoy the warm days we have left, they will be gone in a flash. Gas at Hilltop is now $3.59. Take care, I will be busy delivering some yarn to Thelma Liemers.
