By Lois Lumbra — 5/9… The 500 Card club met at the lovely home of Linda van Gieson’s on West Hill. Linda had everyone come and she prepared a luncheon for everyone. During our time of eating we all have a time to chit-chat and lots of laughter. The game starts at 1 p.m. and Linda had high score for the afternoon (3540), Rita St.Onge had second high (3500), low score was Jo Cota (1140), most horses went to Helen Parent (6). Subs for the afternoon were Rita, in the absence of Connie McFarland, Roberta Morin played for Sue Cherrier… who was enjoying some time in Florida, Helen Parent was playing for Lorraine Gillis. Sue Peters will host the June meeting at her home. We all had a wonderful afternoon and we all loved seeing the big goose swimming around on their pond.
“Our Town”Written and shared by Esther Varela of Town.
It’s a nice place to settle down,
People stop to chat in the local grocery store,
the post-office’s parking lot, or even it’s front door in our town.
Everyone knows you by your name,
In cities people pass each other as they hurry about, and it’s not the same.
Our town has a certain pride.
It’s a friendly community to reside.
Some young people will probably move elsewhere since they feel that their
future, would be at a loss here, and not a gain.
But as for me, our Town is where, I’ll remain.
It’s true that one’s economic livelihood’s input is important to maintain life,
Yet, money isn’t everything, and it’s so often the cause, of unhappiness and strife.
The beauty of our Town can be seen, and because , most are sensible, our
Town will survive.
It’s the quality not the quantity from our family and friends that make us
What we are, and such energy and ingredients are worthwhile, and
They keep our Town alive.
