A very happy belated birthday to Roy Ward of Freedom. I hope you had a great day!

Taylor Reynolds stopped in and had coffee with Dustin one day recently. He had been out hunting, but no luck that morning.

For everyone that has been asking, here is the telephone number for the Waldo County Woodshed, 338-2692. The plan is to have weekly distribution sites in Unity, Thorndike, Brooks, Searsport, Belfast, Frankfort, Monroe and Searsmont. This is all done by volunteers.

The Thorndike Congregational Church is taking pie orders for Thanksgiving. Pumpkin, apple, blueberry, cherry, chocolate cream and coconut cream are all on the menu. Pies are $12. each and must be ordered by Saturday, Nov. 18, and must be picked up at the church on Wednesday, Nov. 22. Please call Coleen at 322-2260 to order your pies.

The Sweetser School , 9 School Street, Belfast, will be hosting a Vendor Fair on Thursday, Nov. 16, 4 to 6 p.m. This will be to raise money for new gym equipment, art supplies and sensory items. There will be Lularoe consultants, and consultants from Younique, Lipsense, Paparazzi jewelry and Color Street nail polish strips. Also, local T-shirt artist, Lisa Wing will be on hand, along with Mount View students having a bake sale, with all proceeds going to the Sweetser school. For more information, call Heidi at 930-2900.

Papa Dixon visited with Dustin recently. They always have such a good time telling stories and having big belly laughs.

There will be big goings on in Thorndike during the month of December. On Dec. 8, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Santa will arrive and there will be the lighting of the Christmas tree in the village triangle.There will be a 12 days of Christmas scavenger hunt, Girl Scouts will sing and decorate the tree, pictures with Santa and much more. This will be a merry and bright Christmas in Thorndike. Additional ideas are always welcome. Check their website for more information, Thorndike Community Action Committee.

​Stay warm and have a good week.
