Searsport news

Turkey Takeout

Don’t forget the Takeout Turkey Supper at the Searsport United Methodist Church this week on Saturday, May 8, from 4 to 6 p.m. They’ve got the traditional turkey fixings with gravy, mashed potatoes, peas, corn, biscuits, and your choice of homemade pie. Dinners are $10 each and reservations are not necessary. Maybe it will be a nice evening to have a picnic on the beach!

Carver Memorial Library

Now that spring is making a more permanent appearance, the seed library is open! Take some seeds and/or contribute some seeds. Try some new varieties! Sounds like gardening fun to me!

Book Club is happening on Tuesday, May 11, at 1 p.m. at the old Lions Club at 42 Prospect St. Reminder: Masks and social distancing will be observed. The group is reading local author Ardeana Hamlin’s “The Havener Sisters,” a terrific local historical novel. All are welcome, even if you haven’t had time to read the book!

New steps at Mosman Park

The steps to the beach have been replaced by Garrett Burns of South Paris and GWB Carpentry with pressure-treated wood that should last a long time. A beautiful job; take a look next time you’re at the park!

Thank you to Selectman Steve Tanguay, our organizer, and all the volunteers who participated in the Searsport Cleanup Day! A good crowd of all ages piled up bags and bags of trash from the roads around Searsport and took out some brown-tail moth nests at Sears Island! I see a difference and I hope we will continue the tradition every Earth Day!

Correction: I mistakenly listed Sharon Davenport as a new member in the DAR photo in April 22 issue instead of Madeline Littlefield. So sorry, Madeline, and thank you for calling it to my attention!
