What a glorious week before summer gets here!! Its been so nice enjoying the sun and having a nice breeze, lovin it!! There are so many signs of summer days and so looking forward to hopefully slowing

down on things and enjoying it. We have 2 granddaughters here right now, 4 and almost 14 years old so they will defiantly keep us going. The oldest graduated from Troy Middle School last night, the 19th, and it was quite an impressionable ceremony. None of my children attended public school here so I had never attended graduations. I was so pleased to be there and part of such a proud moment in her life. Also to see other Searsmont kids get their certificates and other children we are friends of. If any of you in Searsmont (or Liberty) have children they would like to acknowledge for graduations for this year please email me or call with the information. They should have all the acknowledgments due them for all their hard work,

We did not have our yard/bake sale on Sat. 6/14 as it was rather soggy.....weatherman was still predicting on/off showers for the day (although didn't happen), so we were a little apprehensive about going forward....Cancelled for that day.
