June is drawing to an end.  Our summer festivities will soon be in full swing.  I hope the kiddies are enjoying the pool.  It looks really nice.  We are so lucky to have that job done.

The Olde Woodshed at 78 Barker Street has opened and has some great new items.  There is something for everyone.  Stop in for a look.  Owners Cindy Wartman and husband Buck will welcome you.

A big yard sale was held on Saturday at the Charlotte Volunteer Fire & Rescue Station.  Table after table was filled to capacity and the cooks also sold their delicious homemade pies, cookies, breads, fudge and more.  A perfect day it was.

A lovely memorial service was held on Saturday at Mays Funeral Home for Cheryl Roussel Recker.  It was a nice turnout of friends and family.  Anthony Giard was the Celebrant, and as always, did a superb job.  Peace and love to the Roussel families.

The benefit spaghetti dinner for Diane Richendollar was a huge success at the Knights of Columbus Hall last Saturday.  The Chinese auction was fantastic and everyone came through with support and love.  We are praying for good news as time goes on, Diane.

The Passamaquoddy Bay Symphony Orchestra played to a full church last Sunday afternoon.  It was fantastic.  Thanks so much to everyone who participated; it was breathtaking.  

The crafters are still meeting at St. Anne’s Parish Hall for adult coloring on Thursday and Friday mornings at 10:00 am.  Everyone is welcome.  It’s a nice gathering with coffee and whatever baked items are brought to share.

Joe Smith was home from New Hampshire visiting parents Jack and Sally and family.  It was good to see him.  

My oldest grandson left on Saturday for Japan with the Air Force for three years.  My other grandson will attend Moody Bible in August.

We all so enjoyed the concert at the Triangle Park last week with Alan Cook.  He was super!  What most of us were waiting for, good old stomping music.  I hope he comes back soon.

On Friday, July 1st, a Canada Day celebration will take place at the Town Square in St. Stephen from 10:00 to 2:00 US time.  From July 6th through the 9th, a carnival will be at the Border Arena parking lot.

A farmers’ market is held every Thursday from 7:30 am to noon US time in St. Andrews.  There is a wide selection of ethnic foods, handcrafted items and live music.  It’s fun for the whole family.  


I read where my nephew Josh Clinch of St. George helped place luminaries or lit candles around the track during St. Stephen’s Relay for Life last week.  His mother fought cancer a couple of years ago.  Way to go, Josh.
