Bruce Glanville has moved into the VA home in Machias. He was in a bad accident last year and although recovered somewhat, needs to be where he can get the right care. He is a wounded warrior from a past war and very patriotic and active in Veterans’ causes, helping sell Memorial poppys, marching in parades, attending Veterans’ services. He has had some good friends helping him out but it’s time for him to get proper care. He’s a former member of the Cathance Grange #510 and baked wonderful baked beans and biscuits. I hope he gets lots of company and attention and cards are always a good way to pick up one’s spirits. Good luck to Bruce in his new home.

A half mile down the East Ridge Road is the cemetery. A new one has been opened several miles down beside the Krider home overlooking woods with a view of Cathance Lake and it has been named, Cathance Overlook Cemetery. And ironically, Betty Krider was the first burial spot sold in this beautiful spot.

Sue Oullete has been visiting with her sister Sally Ketchen since their father passed away.

Remember the song, “Wasn’t that a Party”? Well, there was a wonderful Easter party held at the Community Center (see separate article below). It was sponsored by the Friends of the Community Center. It was decorated in an Easter Theme with hundreds of plastic eggs hidden inside because of the weather. Refreshments were enjoyed during the afternoon. Music was supplied John Viselli and Frank Seger during the day. Tables were loaded with eggs to color and decorate, flower pots to do the same, right down to the dirt and seeds to start a plant. It was a wonderful time for the children from the egg hunt and the many games with prizes to keep them busy. There was a pinata for them to hit. We were there for the music and found ourselves enjoying the day and stayed to the end. This Committee deserves a lot of thanks from our community for the effort, time and money they are putting into pulling our little town together. Now if they’d join the Grange!

There were four generations of Jane Gillespie’s family attending the Meddybemps Christian Church on Easter. Many of them attended Sunday School and took part in the wonderful Easter puppet shows. Next Sunday there will be a social and coffee time right after the services.

There will be a meeting of the Cathance Grange #510 this Wednesday night at the hall starting at 7:00 p.m. Now that’s warmer with plenty of daylight. Members are invited to attend and visitors also. Come and find out what Grange is all about.
