Hello All,

It is dreary, damp and feeling cold to me, and has been raining. I decided to stay put and not venture out to the church supper after all. Fall is sure here by the feeling in the air. We were fortunate to escape the hurricane. Prayers for those suffering any loss from this in the southerrn states, and Bahamas.

Cousin hard at work

Devin Strickler, a veteran, is making homemade sugar cookie-scented soy candles from her company, Life Moments Candle Co., in Richland, Pa. "For the Love of a Veteran," the soy candle is a fundraiser for the VA in her area. The sales benefit the veterans that will be attending and participating in the national Golden Age Games 2020 being held in Madison, Wis. will be contacting her at to see if the Maine group may possibly want to partake in this as well. One never knows. I know a lady vet from Maine that attends the games.

College soccer

Our granddaughter, Sara Doughty, is playing soccer for the UMPI Owls as they opened their season with a victory vs. Vermont Tech. UMPI won 4-1 in their road trip to Vermont, behind two first-year players. The Owls came out of the gate early with their first goal coming within the first minute of the game. Sara Doughty scored the unassisted goal in her first college game. The Owls stayed aggressive, with Sara scoring her second goal of the game behind a goal at the 4-minute mark, at the 7:39 mark. This capped off their 3-0 half-time lead. Yes,They won 4-1, and I was happy for her team. As I write this, they are in Boston for their game on Sunday.
