Good morning, my friends. Don’t worry, be happy!
Received an e-mail from Linda French which is very important. People seem to be having trouble with the new location of the food cupboard. It has been moved to 120 Pleasant Street, in Solon. Just before you turn onto the Brighton Road. It is open the second and fourth weeks of the month on Thursday and Friday. The hours are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The phone number to call is you want to check to see if it is open or if you need to make arrangements for a different time is 430388.
Received the following news by a letter from Charlotte Withee, in Anson: Athena Cemetery Association meeting at the Anson Town Office meeting room on Thursday, May 9, at 6:30 p.m.
I had begun to think spring was finally here. The snow had been melting every day, and it was beginning to look more like spring, but then I looked out the window, and it was snowing AGAIN! And it wasn’t long before I received an e-mail that school had been canceled in MSAD #54 schools because of the weather. So now I will have to call all my friends in our painting club at Skowhegan High School and tell them there won’t be any meeting tonight.
Lief and I went to the Solon Congregational Church sale last Saturday at Solon Elementary School, and were very impressed with all the people that had tables there, it was a great fair. Now, mustn’t forget Percy’s memoir; Never accept the negative until you have explored the positive.
As you know by now, I’ve been going through old clippings from old columns back when I used Salada Tea tag sayings (this one from December 2, 1994). “This week I’d like to thank Ben Safford for the tea tags that he saved for me, thanks so much Ben. And so from Salada Tea, Ben and me…“Time wounds all heels.” Now I must run and call all my friends to tell them there won’t be any painting class tonight!
