Most of the Christmas celebrating has wound down. Here’s hoping everyone had a blessed and memorable holiday with loved ones and friends.   Many are now finalizing New Year’s Eve plans, and snack menus for watching New Year’s Day parades and football games. It is no wonder that so many people go on diets and begin to exercise with the start of the New Year. 

Happy Birthday wishes to Meddybemps residents Kelly McCoubrey and Paulyne Ward on January 3 and 5, respectively, and to my dear friend Rachel Burden on January 1. Rachel’s and her husband Matt’s oldest son, Josiah, was 4 years old on December 29. Matt is the Pastor of 2nd Baptist Church in Calais. We wish these New Year ‘babies’ the very best. On January 7, Ruth and Bill Doten, Sr., celebrate their wedding anniversary -- I believe it is their 57th!  Congratulations!  My late Mom and Dad would have celebrated their 68th on December 27.  

Please send your holiday news to or phone 454-3719. 

Happy, healthy and safe New Year wishes to all!
