I have not had a column in the paper for a few weeks because I have been sick with the flu that has been going around.  Get well wishes for those who have been hit with this bug.

The Robbinston Grange met on April 13th.  It was decided to sell RADA Cutlery products to raise money.  The next meeting will be on Monday, May 11th at 6:00 pm at Sewall Church.  The first Pomona meeting of the year will take place at the Perry Grange on May 5th with a supper at 6:00 pm and meeting at 7:00 pm.  A memorial program will be held for all members who have died during last year.

Last Tuesday, April 21st, Al Churchill talked to members of the Robbinston Historical Society about “How to Establish a Museum.”  Several people showed up despite the heavy rains.  There will be no annual meeting in May because of the yard sale.  It will instead be held on June 18th at 7:00 pm.  The yard sale will take place on May 22nd, 23rd, and 24th from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.  

I ran into Andrea Moore and she wanted the readers to know that her father John Brooks has been moved to the Veterans’ Home in Bangor. He would love to receive greetings.  John will be 99 years old on May 6th.
