More seasonal camps are being closed up every day.  It is always kind of sad to see the vibrant summer season coming to a close around the lake.  Time marches on.  Now we have the beginnings of the vibrant colors of fall.  The maples are coming into glowing reds and reddish-orange hues, especially when the sunlight illuminates the leaves.   

Happy birthday wishes to Joanne McCoubrey who celebrates hers on October 8.  Patty Reynolds celebrates hers on October 17.  Bob and Linda Gordon’s wedding anniversary is October 18. Many more happy and healthy years to come are wished to all celebrating these special occasions.

Cheryl Bagley continues to put in long hours as a volunteer at Paws in Calais.  She has been assisting with the free spay and neuter program for cats and dogs going on at the center on South Street, which is coming to a close. 


Wildlife continues to be on the move in our area.  A moose and deer have been seen by a few individuals.  While out kayaking around the lake, Glenn Ball took some impressive photos of a swimming beaver.  He also saw one near Thomas Point.  

I have not heard if the Meddybemps Community Center committee is planning a Halloween event for children again this year.  Details will be provided as soon as they become available to me.
