Ladies club

On May 11, 17 members of the Midcoast Ladies went on their secret tour for the day. The first stop was the new Hope Corner Fire Station where everyone was met by fireman Ronald Wright and his wife, Dottie. Everyone learned about and saw a lot of very interesting items the firemen have to use. Thank you Dottie and Ronnie for showing all the ladies around the building. The next stop was Maine Water Buffalo Co. in West Appleton. This was a sight to see. They have two varieties of buffaloes and have 22 animals. Everyone learned all about these animals with owner Jessica Farrar and Al Green the farm manager educating all the ladies. The only drawback was that the wind blew very badly so it was cold. If you would like to see these animals give them a call at 785-6493. Thanks go to these people for a very interesting event.

The club then rode over Appleton Ridge and saw many areas of blueberries, which looked wonderful.

Lunch was held at the Come Spring restaurant in Union.

The next stop was my house. The ladies looked around. All enjoyed William’s dog Biscuit. He would bark, sit up, lie down and do many other things. (He is a large stuffed animal.)

The business meeting followed.

Margaret Morse then showed the king size quilt that she had made and donated to the group to seek chances on with the proceeds going to the scholarship fund. The first chance for everyone to see this beautiful quilt and purchase some chances will be voting day on Tuesday, June 8. I will be selling chances from 10 a.m. to noon with Charlotte Young selling from 2 to 4 p.m. and Janet Pease from 6 to 8 p.m. Needed are people from noon until 2 p.m. and from 4 to 6 p.m. Please call me and volunteer at one of these times. The scholarship fund to be awarded in June was discussed. Darlene suggested a place that she will look into. Several other places were talked about.

The October meeting will again be a secret tour. Arleigh has this event all arranged. The spring secret tour Juanita has taken care of. The secret tour that was held this month was very educational but it was so cold in Appleton we could not stay longer.
