Thorndike News

By Linda Dixon | Nov 29, 2019

I hope your Thanksgiving was a happy time for you and yours. I served old-fashioned baked macaroni and cheese, tossed salad, pickles, etc., with a make-your-own dessert with brownies, ice cream and whatever else one wanted on them. It was a very relaxing day for me.

Do not forget the Fridays in December in Thorndike, with a train ride from Unity to the Thorndike Mill and Meeting Place in Thorndike Village. Enjoy shopping at Farwell's Museum Store, Boxcar Books and Garden Variety. You will find unique gifts, up-cycled, handmade and one-of-a-kind offerings for sale to support the Mill Restoration Project. Music, appetizers, cheese, wine and local brew tastings. $20. per person 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. All proceeds to benefit the Mill Restoration Project. Please contact for ticket information.

There will be a tree lighting in Thorndike Dec. 14. Details to come.

Please support the Varney Thrift Store in Brooks during the winter months. They are closed when school is cancelled due to bad weather. Their hours are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Stop by and find exactly what you have been looking for. It is my favorite shopping destination.

Have a great week, get your shopping started and hang a wreath on the door.

Hubert H. Humphrey was quoted as saying, "We believe that to err is human. To blame it on someone else is politics."
