Knox Town News

Had a nice dinner with the Nickersons,  Sophyre and Sara in Unity. Had a good time talking with them and Gary.

Christmas bazaar

The Montville Community Center will be all aglow with Christmas decorations and lights on Dec. 2 for the holiday bazaar from 9:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Lots of local crafts, kids' activities, wreaths, refreshments, and music. The Kingdom School will be open as well. Come and take a look. The school will bring back memories from the past. A nice day is planned. Come join in the fun.

Mount View High School

On Dec. 1 come on out to the craft fair at the high school. Runs from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Many crafters displaying all kinds of goodies. The classes will be selling different things as well. Come and join the fun. Also, the Jackson Community Center in Jackson has an auction, for ladies only, in the morning to benefit the food pantry there. There is also a craft fair in Belfast at the Boathouse Saturday morning  as well. Plenty of places to find that special Christmas gift.

Santa is coming

On Dec. 7 Santa and Mrs. Claus will be at the Knox Town Office for the annual tree-lighting sponsored by the Knox Booster Club.There will be hot chocolate and snacks for everyone. There will be sleigh rides, if we have enough snow by then, or wagon rides with Clayton and his Belgian horses. Bring the kids and join in. Starts at 5 p.m., tree-lighting 5:30 p.m. and Santa will arrive at 6 p.m. All are welcome.


Heidi Doughty got an 8-point. buck, and it weighed 150 pounds. Good for you. Hunting season is nearly over, and I, for one, will be glad. The Doughty boys went out with their dad hunting for a while.


Wayne, Cody and David stopped by, then came Laura, Sara, and Katie on their way back home. Ali stopped in earlier, but I missed her. Had a nice visit with all.

Five generations

Saw a nice picture of Betty Spaulding, Connie Larrabee, Susan Bilodeau, daughters Jill and Ryann and their three daughters on Facebook. It's nice to have the group pictures taken of all. They are so fortunate to still be together.


Maude Ghent has been home from Harbor Hill for about two weeks now. She is so lucky to have her daughter, Dee, and family to care for her. They had Thanksgiving at the farm.


The Knox Historical calendar is still in the works. Hope it's complete soon.


Although I hate to admit this, my birthday is Dec. 1, coming up soon, and to my amazement I am going to be the big 70. Oh my!


The Open Door Lunches at the Unity Community Center are this week, Nov. 26-30.  They are at 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. daily. and are free. Donations are gratefully accepted. The Maine Farmland Trust has applications for their food from local farmers program. This is a worthwhile project. You can get a good deal if you sign up before Nov. 30 for the winter share. On Depot Street, so check it out.

Seen  in Knox

The Dunkin Donuts shop at the Depot is coming right along. Oh, that good DD coffee. Thanks to the Waldo CAP group who were delivering Thanksgiving baskets to area townspeople, as I saw them on Saturday trying to find people's addresses.

Petitions at Hilltop Store

Please take the time to sign them, as it is for the town warrant that they must get them done. For Knox residents, of course. Don't forget to bring the kids to see Santa.


Kenny Drew visited with Joyce Bailey Thompson and even sang for her. He lives in Troy, N.H. He sings and plays with a group. They visit nursing homes and entertain the residents. His wife and him had Thanksgiving with his mother, Kenola Denico (Drew), and Dave and Junior in Vassalboro. Kenny grew up next door to Joyce and family.

Miranda and Kenny McCue had Thanksgiving in Connecticut with their grandmother, Laura Gardiner Prelli, and family.

Hope everyone who has been sick is now better.

Until next week

Enjoy the weather we are having, so far no snow is on the ground.
