Thorndike column

​Get well wishes are being sent to Laura Stewart. I hope you start feeling better soon.

​Congratulations to the Jackson Food Pantry on being awarded $5,000 from Bangor Savings Bank Foundation's 2018 Community Matters More campaign. The pantry works very hard to have ample food for all their clients.

​I am sending get well wishes to Steve Langeluttig. I hope you are up and about real soon.

​The Thorndike Volunteer Fire Department meets on Monday nights, 7 p.m. They have a good group now, but are always seeking new members. Stop by on a Monday evening if you are interested in becoming a member. They are noted for having good refreshments at times.

​Also, a speedy recovery is being sent to Merrily Stevenson, after the fall she took a few days ago.

​When you receive a solicitation, either by phone or in the mail, please check to see how much of your donation actually goes to help the cause. It is quite an eye-opening experience. A lot of the time 15 percent or less actually goes to help someone.

​Agatha Christie was once quoted as saying, "An archeologist is the best husband any woman can get. The older she gets, the more interested he is in her."

​I have had my first dandelion greens of the season and they were very good. Now on to get some fiddleheads.

​Have a great week and get your news items to me by Thursday evening.
