As we all look at this Thanksgiving there are so many things in our lives to be thankful for. Certainly high on the list is the bountiful area of Grand Lake Stream with lakes, forest and abundant animals and birds.  On the personal the year 2017 will be remembered as the year doctors identified that I had developed Mantle Cell Lymphoma.  As I sit here I am thankful that I am in remission.  The past six months has been a long process with the treatments at the New England Cancer Center in Scarboro . After talking with the doctor today he said it will take 6 months or more for the body to fully recover from the effects of the chemo therapy that has been given.   A special thank you to all of you who prayed for my recovery and sent cards as well as calling me for updates.   I’m sure this really helped the recovery process.  Let us be sure and support Patty Weeks whose husband Barry just succumbed  to this dreadful disease.   

A couple weeks ago I participated in The Maine wide antique tractor plow day held in Gorham at the Parson Farm. Just click on this site and you can see what a plow day looks like.

On Tuesday, November 28, join Downeast Lakes Land Trust staff and volunteers as Grand Lake Stream celebrates the start of the holiday season with an Evergreen Extravaganza!  The Grand Lake Stream School Building will be transformed into an early winter wonderland of crafts, delicious treats, children’s activities, and more.
