All meetings are at Lincolnville Central School unless otherwise noted.
The School Committee meets Monday, Oct. 1 at 7 p.m.
A Busy Saturday
This coming Saturday, Sept. 29 is chock full of events to choose from:
From 9 a.m. to noon, get your flu shot from Camden District Nurses at the Grange; free with your Medicare card or $25 without. Questions? Call CDNA at 230-6272 or Elaine Davis at 236-2304.
And also 9 a.m. to noon, the farmers’ market will be set up at its usual location, the old Grampa Hall’s. Come by for some home-baked, or raised, or produced goodies – breads, seafood, sweets, maple syrup, coffee, etc. and check out a book at the community library, set up in the corner. The little ones will especially like the bookshelves sized just for them, and there are lots and lots of children’s books.
Republican Town Committee
At 10 a.m. the Republican Town Committee will meet at the Lincolnville Improvement Association building. All registered Republicans welcome. Coffee and muffins will be served. Any questions, call Janet Plausse, 789-5811.
Museum open house
Stop by the Schoolhouse Museum (second floor Beach School/L.I.A. building) for an open house, from 1 to 4 p.m. Get a door prize just for coming, but best of all, browse through the historical society’s collection of memorabilia, photographs, local genealogies and more. Connie Parker, who knows the collection inside out, will be on-hand to help you find things.
Meet the candidate
Lloyd Chase, candidate for House District 44, of which Lincolnville is part (along with Appleton, Hope, Islesboro, Liberty, Morrill, and Searsmont) will be at the Grange from 2 to 4 p.m. to meet the voters. Come in and say “hi.”
There will just be time to pop in at the Lobster Pound to say “congratulations” to our long-time former town administrator Skip Day and his wife Arlene, celebrating a half century of marriage! They’ll be there from 2:45 to 5 p.m.
Still have some energy left? Then drive on down to the Beech Hill Preserve in Rockport and hike up to Beechnut, the stone hut at the top of the hill to enjoy the rise of the full moon over the bay along with activities co-sponsored by Coastal Mountains Land Trust and Camden Public Library. Alternatively, you could park down at Lincolnville Beach and see the same moon-rise. Or, as I plan to do, peek out the bedroom window for a quick glimpse of that full, orange moon (just to make sure it’s still in the sky), then pull the shade and hop into bed…
4 a.m. and we’d just opened our eyes to begin our morning ritual, a slow conversation that ranges back and forth, neither of us really awake, usually running through the day to come. Then came a thoughtful murmur from his side of the bed – “Man, those were good pork chops…” I guess the romance is over.
And so they were, the best pork chops we’d had in some time. They’d been delivered to our door just the day before by Sam Mudge, to be known from now on in our family as our granddaughter Maggie greeted him – Farmer Sam. Sam is farming up on VanCycle Road, experimenting with growing various grains as well as raising pigs. He sold the pork via the Bulletin Board this summer, and that’s how we came to have those delicious pork chops the other night.
