Thorndike news

By Linda Dixon | Apr 30, 2021


Thorndike's annual town meeting was very well attended. Congratulations to our new Third Selectman Charles Greenberg. I will have to make his acquaintance as I have never met him.

Condolences to the family and friends of Lloyd Clark. He was quite the character and will be missed.

The chicken barbecue and auction to benefit Stephen Fowler was a resounding success. It shows how much he is loved and respected by the people from Thorndike and surrounding towns. Awesome job, Lori and your team of helpers.

Sympathy is being extended to the family and friends of Katherine Tweedie.

My Sister and I shop at 29 Depot St., Thorndike, is now open for the season. The hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Stop in and see all their pretty things and have a great chat with the girls.

Do not forget to go get some delicious homemade goodies at the Dirigo Grange Hall, Route 137, Freedom village,

Saturday, May 8, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be homemade pies, fudge, assorted sweets, homemade baked beans and biscuits. Masks and social distancing guidelines will be followed. Please support the local Grange.

We are inside on this rainy day and a good day for doing some cleaning. When the weather is good, we are outside doing yard work. Now, I'm afraid it is time to clean up this place.

Mark Twain is quoted as saying, "If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man."
