By Lois Lumbra — 8/28, As I’m about finished writing this column, I’m beginning to feel the heat as it is almost 90 degrees this afternoon. Some changes coming about, though, if the weatherman is accurate in his forecast. Will See!!!
8/27, What a gorgeous day for the Harvest=Fest on the Village Park with all the vendors coming to sell their artistic crafts, jewelry, canned goods, jams and jellies, delicious baked goods, etc. There was delicious pizza made right before our eyes and baked in a brick oven right here on the park, and then there was delicious wraps all made fresh, Yummmy!!! The Montgomery Covered Bridges Garden Club planned this event and it brought in so many wonderful people to come and enjoy the day. Then “Trinkets and Treasurers” was set up at the Historical Society with lots and lots of nice pieces of treasurers were donated. To everyone working and planning these events Thank You!!!

8/23, Eleven members of the Green Mountain Ruby Reds and three friends joined us for “Dessert “ at Devin’s Cree-mee stand in Enosburg. We had made arrangements ahead of time to come for fried ice cream or any of their special desserts offered. It was a HOT afternoon and the ice cream treats were just so delicious, a wonderful way to get a little cooling off, and visit with our friends. Thanks, for all the wonderful service we received it was greatly appreciated!!!

Just for laughs…
An elderly man goes to a large department store fitting room and drop his garments to his knees and lets out a holler that there is no toilet paper in here. I’m told its good medicine to laugh so I hope this at least brings a smile to your face.
Have a nice week..the children will be returning to school this week and they seem excited to get back after a wonderful summer.
