Thorndike column

By Linda Dixon


Thank you to all who contributed to the success of the Austin J. Grant memorial hunters' breakfast. It is amazing to see everyone working together for the good of the community.

Dustin visited with friends at their camp in Burnham recently. He enjoys that a lot.

​Thank you Mark and Chris for cleaning up the old deck and ramp debris.

​The Sweetser school at 9 School Street, Belfast, will be having a vendor fair on Thursday, November 16th, 4 - 6p.m. to raise money for new gym equipment, art supplies and sensory items.There will be Lularoe consultants with an inventory of over 4,500 pieces of clothing. There will also be consultants from Younique, Lipsense, Paparazzi jewelry and Color Street nail polish strips. Local T-shirt artist, Lisa Wing will be on hand with tie-dye T shirts and local Mt. View students will be conducting a bake sale with all proceeds going to Sweetser. For more information, call Heidi at 930-2900.

Recently, Papa Dixon visited with Dustin and they had a laughing good time.

​Alan and Alan Junior came over a few times to get water during the power outage. I am glad it was not cold for everyone that had no power. We kept the wood fire burning and plugged in the generator.

​The streets of Thorndike were alive with lots of kiddos on Halloween night. It has been many years since I have seen that many ghosts and goblins in town. Everyone had a great time and I think we are planning on doing it again next year.

Taylor was hunting in the area recently and stopped in for a visit.

​Do not forget the open house at the Thorndike Fire House on Sunday, November 12, I - 3 p.m. Please stop by and visit with the fireman and check out their equipment. Have some good food, good conversation and see what the department is doing. There will also be a silent auction, 50-50 raffle and a door prize. See ya' there.

​The British politician, Baroness Trumpington, was quoted as saying, "If you are ever attacked in the street, do not shout "Help!"--shout "Fire!" People adore fires and always come rushing."

​Have a great week and get rested from the power outage.
