Skip Gorman Sings, Nancy Griffin Speaks
This month’s L’ville Community Library Author and Concert series brings singer/song historian Skip Gorman and local author Nancy Griffin to the library (Farmers’ Market/Grampa Hall’s) in the Center for a program Thursday the 8th at 7 p.m.
Gorman, who has appeared on “Prairie Home Companion” and in Ken Burns’ documentaries, “brings back to life the workaday world of the old ‘waddie’ cowboys and pioneers of the American West. His old time, all-acoustic music is the simple yet poignant music with true Celtic and Appalachian roots that was performed around campfires by cowhands and westward settlers in the late 19th century.”
Nancy Griffin, author of “Making Whoopies: The Official Whoopee Pie book” and “Maine 101,” has a humorous and knowledgeable approach to life in Maine. Incidentally, Nancy, who as editor of The Camden Herald “back in the day” led a three-week insurrection of Herald staffers and started the very short-lived Camden Reporter, hired me to write the L’ville News for that paper. When it folded, and Nancy along with her little band of fellow travelers went back to the Herald, I went too. It was 1979, and I’ve been here ever since.
Seating is limited so call Rosey Gerry at 975-5432, to reserve tickets, which are $10 each and for those younger than 12, $5. Refreshments will be served. Proceeds benefit the library construction.
Community Thanksgiving Dinner
In past years this was a turkey dinner at the L.I.A. building, served by volunteers from various organizations for those who live alone or don’t get out much. This year will be different. Still hosted by United Christian Church with the help of Bayshore Baptist Church and the L’ville Women’s Club, the meal will be potluck and free, held at the Community Building in the Center on Sunday, Nov. 18, at 2 p.m. All in town are invited to come; families are especially welcome.
Bring a casserole or salad to share if you can. Pie, rolls and drinks will be provided, as well as ham and turkey. There will be a children’s craft corner, too.
The Annual Lermond Craft Show at the Community Building is Saturday, Nov. 24, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tables are still available for $10 each. This show gives local crafters and shoppers a convenient place to find and sell locally made, reasonably priced goods for winter needs and gift giving. And incidentally, raises funds to keep two L’ville cemeteries mowed. Contact Nancy Miller Heald at 763-4280 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Nancy says she’d love to have a wooden toymaker at the show!
Anita Reynolds was busy picking raspberries last week, and brought in plenty for a pie.
We don’t have any raspberries here, but thanks to Norm Walters, intrepid mushroom hunter, we’ve got a year’s supply of oyster mushrooms, the last mushroom of the season. I’ll dry them in our dehydrator for winter.
We also have an abundance of eggs, cute little pullet eggs from our adolescent Pearl White Leghorns. And if we do, then so do all the other flock owners in town. Check with the ones in your neighborhood.
