Prospect News

By Barbara A. Tilley | Feb 14, 2013


I really want to thank the crews of Central Maine Power for getting our power back Saturday under the most unbelievable conditions. We may have been without power for five hours, but we were very lucky it wasn’t longer. Can you imagine climbing poles to repair lines in high winds and blowing snow? Job well done!

Also want to thank our paper delivery man -- he got through and left our paper, but the U.S. Postal Service could not deliver the mail. I don’t remember a time that has happened in the past.

We are getting ready for the benefit supper Feb. 16, 4-6 p.m. that was postponed from last Saturday. The forecasters are predicting snow this Saturday night, but it sounds like it will be later in the evening. Sure hope so -- this supper is for the Prospect Concerns Heating Fund. Hope to see a lot of people.

Next month we will start Daylight Saving Time -- that should make everyone feel better with more light. Vitamin D in pill form is not as good as outside sun.

My sister-in-law, Pat Herbest, who lives in Alabama, told me that she has seen three robins around her trailer and also had one or two hummingbirds looking for food last week. Early spring? I told her to send them on their way up here.

Coffee Time is held every Wednesday in the Prospect Community Club dining room, 1-3 p.m., but the past three weeks due to storms and other dates, we have not met. We will be back on schedule next Wednesday, and I want to remind everyone that you are invited. I sure miss our snowbirds, but they will start coming back before April for the majority of them.

I want to wish you all a safe and healthy week, and please remember those who need a card or a prayer. God bless you all.
