Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The Perry Fair on Saturday was wonderful. So many booths, veggies, pickles, food, entertainment, crafts, something for everyone. It turned out to be a beautiful day. There were cars parked for miles. I met a lot of friends and saw familiar faces.

In the evening I attended the Second Baptist Church Concert with Kevin Spencer. It was very well attended and as always, a great lunch followed.

We are so blessed with all the yard sales, concerts, entertainment on both sides of the border all summer. Now it seems like it’s time to button down the hatch or at least get ready. Esther Darling turned 104 on her birthday.  God love her. A lovely lady. A group of people are searching for the Boston Post Cane which at one time or other was presented to the oldest person in the community and upon their passing would be given to the person next in line. It was a tradition of small towns of New England. Would appreciate some feed back with thanks.
