I didn’t make it to Pomona Grange in Perry on the 9th because one of my shelties, Mickey who had been ill for only one week had to be put down. He was over 13 and I was too upset to go anywhere. Those of you who have had pets know how attached we get to them and how hard it is to say good bye.

Darlene McConnell and I attended the Ken and Jane Brooks concert on Saturday, October 11 at WCCC. They brought along Eric Boothroyd and the music was wonderful. The money raised went to scholarships for students at the concert. Ken Brooks drew a wagonwheel and had it framed and it was raffled off. The proceeds went to a scholarship for a veteran. Blaine Murray was the lucky winner.

Last Saturday, the Robbinston Historical Society met at the Visitors’ Center. Plans were made for the Annual Christmas Tea on December 6 at 11:00 a.m. at the Visitors’ Center. The center will be decorated on December 3rd. If you have attended you know how much fun it is. I wonder what fun thing MaryAnn and Carol have planned for this year. Also at the meeting, a thank-you note was received from the Wallpaper Quartet who put on a concert last month. It was voted to have Howie Duvall rent a bucket truck to trim or cut any trees that are compromising the Visitors’ Center.

This Friday night at 7:00 p.m. the Annual Haunted Nature Trail will take place at Robbinston Grade School. The rain should be stopped by then. 

Don’t forget on November 4 to vote at the fire station. Polls open at 8:00 a.m. If you need an absentee ballot, contact Cathy Footer right away. Also, the dog tags are in.
