There will be a Retirement Party for Town Treasurer/Tax Collector, David Herrick, on June 25th from 4-6 in the Town Office community room. The public is invited to come and wish him a happy retirement.

 The election on June 10 has continued the service of Doreen Wallace and James (Jim) Davies. Their work is appreciated.

James (Jim) Brown was elected to serve on the Water District Trustee Board and Vernon Wentworth to the School Board.

 Apologies and correction for the wrong hours I listed for the Princeton Farmers’ Market in last week’s column. The hours are: 3:30 to 6 on Thursdays.

 The Friends of Princeton thanks all of Mrs. Andrews’s fourth grade students who submitted a poster in the logo contest. Sierra Bryant was the winner of the contest depicting the motto of Princeton Proud. Sierra will receive a free logo t-shirt and a gift certificate. Each student will receive an ice-cream coupon for participation. All the students’ artwork entries were greatly appreciated.

 Friends will be selling lemonade at the Princeton Farmers’ Market throughout the summer months. Over the weekend,

Bobbi Mather and Sandra Smith, representing Friends, travelled to Machias for Margaretta Days and sold refreshing lemonade at that event. Thank you to Lorraine and David Daggett of Calais for loan of the lemon press. Posters will be going up soon with information on the Friends’ July flea market. Registration will be made available at the Princeton Town Office or by calling 796-2723. Remember, all proceeds from Friends activities go into sponsoring events for the town.

News from the Princeton Elementary school reminds us that the penny carnival will be held on the last day of school.

Miss Williams will be hosting the traditional cake walk. Would anyone be willing to make a cake for this event? The event will run from 8-10 on Friday the 20th.
