Thorndike Column

By Linda Dixon


I hope everyone had a good and grateful Thanksgiving. It was a perfect day in my world. Lots of family around and Halle got her deer down back. Congrats to Halle.

​Condolences to the family and friends of William Croes. He was such a nice man.

​Linda Ames stopped by one day last week. It was so good to see her. She had cut off and hemmed a coat for me and brought it back looking like a new one. Thanks, Linda.

​Condolences to Bud Tibbetts and family on the loss of his wife, Carol. She will be missed by many.

​There was lots of black ice on the roads one morning last week. It is that time of year to take it slow, at least until you find out if the roads are safe. There were several wrecked vehicles and people with minor injuries. It is better to drive with caution.

Santa is scheduled to arrive in Thorndike village on Friday, Dec. 8, 6 p.m. There will also be a tree lighting in the village common. For more information, check the Thorndike Community Action website.

​On Saturday, Dec. 2, the Thorndike Congregational Church will hold their annual craft fair at the church, beginning at 9 a.m. and going until 1 p.m. There will be many things to choose from: white elephant, household items, toys, books, crafts, food and their annual cookie walk. I heard that Santa may make a stop and visit with all the good girls and boys. If you have any items to donate to the fair, give them a call at 568-3145.

​Remember that I have an earlier deadline, so please get your items to me by Thursday evening each week.

​Estee Lauder was quoted as saying, "I never dreamed about success. I worked for it."

Have a safe week.
