By Lois Lumbra — Been a cool wet week, but the vegetation seems to be doing well, the grass is growing well and all the Spring plants. We have started planting a few things in the garden, but waiting for the warmer weather which some plants like. 6/4..What a gorgeous day this turned out to be, beautiful warm sunshine and a few big clouds rolled by but nothing to threatening. We had a good turn-out at Church today, little Colleen Robtoy, daughter of Jason and Lara Robtoy of Enosburg, was baptized and many family members were in attendance. Everyone got to enjoy communion during the service and following the service delicious refreshments brought in by the Robtoy family to celebrate Colleens’ baptism.
