By Lois Lumbra — What a gorgeous Mother’s Day to get out and celebrate with our daughter’s Veronica and Penny, with granddaughter Samantha Royer and her children Jayden and Natalie (Shane was at a basketball game) and grandson Tyler Elkins and his son Exavier (Zavi) and a dear friend Ashley came up from Massachusetts. We all enjoyed lunch at the Pine Cone which was extremely busy. It was nice to see people out enjoying the nice sunshine. We haven’t seen Chee-wee Pronto for sometime and he was there with a friend that drives him around. I hope everyone got to have a wonderful day with their families.

5/8..The 500 Card Club met at the home of Lorraine Gillis in Enosburg; she had invited the ladies for lunch. Lorraine’s daughters Suzanne Berkson and Linda prepared the luncheon for their Mother. It was all so delicious and we all sincerely thank you for your kindness and hospitality. We were all ready to enjoy a little nap after such a wonderful lunch, but instead we got those cards mixed up and starting playing just before one. It was an afternoon with low hands for many, ending up with the high score was Denise Baker (3580), second high was Carmen Scott (3210) and most horses was a three way tie between Therese Begnoche, Sue Cherrier and Lorraine Gillis… High card was drawn by Therese. I do not remember the low score I know I was next to having it. There were afternoon snacks and punch to enjoy. Sue Cherrier will have the June meeting at her home at noon time.

5/10..Lise Gates had a Mother’s Day Brunch with a full house coming to enjoy. There were 12 members of the Green Mountain Ruby Reds that came together to enjoy the Brunch and we had two new ladies that wanted to join our group.

5/11..Several Fire Departments were called to come and help put out a fire up off the Regan Road in Montgomery Center, the fire got going out in a field and burned around 10 acres before the fire was finally brought under control. This is just a little about the fire that I was told.(?)

5/12..The marriage of Shane Robitaille and Lesley Hendry was held at her parents home in Milton starting at 3 p.m. with family and friends coming to share in this special day. Congratulations Shane and Lesley!!!

5/23..Dan Dillner will be at the Montgomery Public Safety Bldg. at 6:30 – 8 p.m. with a presentation on a “Threat To Our Forest.” A threat from the Emerald Ash Borer and Tent Caterpillars. Everyone welcome.

5/27..The Annual Memorial Day Commemoration event will be at the Hill West Cemetery starting at 11 a.m.

Happy Birthday to: Keishya Fiore 5/22; Billy Baker jr. 5/23; Frank Elkins, Kelly Maxfield 5/24; Jeannette Sylvester, Ashley Cota, Flynn Paradee, Helen Thompson (90th) 5/25; Paul Chauvin 5/26.

My grandmother started walking at the age of 79, she is now 92 and we have no idea where she is. If things get better with age… I must be getting close to being magnificent.

This is all for now folks, if the weatherman is correct we should have a wonderful week.
