By Lois Lumbra — Pat and Carol Farmer have returned home after a great trip to Southern Utah. They were on a 10 day tour with a Road Scholar group. They visited five National Parks and a couple of National Monuments. Zion, Bryce, Canyonlands, and Capitol reef were some of the parks visited, each one had its own beauty and geological story. The scenery was breathtaking and the weather was fantastic. There were 40 people that went on our bus tour and it ran like clockwork!!!
4/19, Connor Walker and brother Liam and friend Jacob Barnes gathered up their sap buckets and washed them and stacked them on the front lawn to dry. The children all kept busy during their school break. Connor stopped me while I was on my way to Church this morning to tell me that he had shot a big turkey. Congratulations C.!! This young man is amazing for his age. He got a large moose last Fall.
4/20. Jon and Barbara Walker took their three grandchildren, Connor, Liam and Ava to see the 3-D movie “Jungle Book” and then they all enjoyed Mexican food at Moes, in Williston. It was such a great movie and Barbara said all ages would enjoy it.
4/19-23, Maggie Elkins had her two sister-in-laws, Maxine Farrar and Janice Adams come for lunch Wednesday. She went golfing one afternoon with her sisters Susie Ewins and Grace Jones at the Enosburg golf course. (They were just a swinging!!!) Then Maggie had visits from her daughter Kelly Maxfield, son Clay came up for the weekend from Mass., also a visit from granddaughter Emma Roger and a friend Mattie.
4/22-24, Earth Day weekend was celebrated at Susan Delear and Paul Fernalds home with friends from Ct., Linda Butler, Nancy Langdon, Deb Pastir and Evelyn McCarthy. They all enjoyed Potluck, music, dancing and drumming. Also friends in attendance from Vermont were Sue Brown and Shem Webster, Rich Noel and Teri Kittell, Robin and CJ Farrar. Everyone had a great time and the weather was rather cool but nice.
Happy Birthday to: Madeline Senesac 5/1, McKenzie McGovern 5/2, Violet Begnoche and Brielle Hardy 5/3, Janessa Ryea & Hazel O’shea 5/4, Micky Abell, Ken Greco, & Waylon Marshall 5/5, Carol Clokey, Kristen Fletcher & Megan Larivee 5/6.
An irate Senior citizen called the Newspaper office loudly demanding where is my Sunday Paper? The Secretary said this is Saturday sir, your Sunday paper will be delivered tomorrow. There was a long pause and she heard him say, “So that is why no one was in Church today.” We have been blessed with lots of sunshine this week and endured the cold north wind with it.
Have a nice week and L.T.A.
