A few days from the start of school! It is hard to believe how fast the summer went.
The new state law crosswalk signs are in many key places and are good reminders for those of us hurriedly driving to work to be cautious.
The River Valley is losing one of its best as Postmaster Tony Glazier has accepted a position in Newmarket, NH and has become their postmaster. Rumford’s loss is New Hampshire's gain. He is great at his job and it’s harder to find a nicer more genuine person. He is family as he is my brother-in-law but he is also my friend.
He and Denise will be closer to their children and spouses and of course their grandson who has personality plus. If you see the Glaziers wish them the best in tax free New Hampshire.
I mentioned it last week but the date is confirmed and the Christmas in The Valley Craft Fair will take place on December 3rd from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Puiia Gymnasium and MVHS cafeteria. Most of the crafters that were at last year's fair said they would definitely return as they stated that they had much success.
The Chinese auction, cookie walk, Mr. & Mrs. Frosty plus much more will be part of the festivities.
It is a good thing that Ron at the Rumford Information Center installed a computer so that our many visitors can see the power and beauty of the falls on a video as currently most of the visitors ask where the falls are as they stand facing them at our back window.
There is a “Maine Harvest for Hunger” bean hole bean supper on September 10 (rain or shine). It will be an authentic “New England Style” bean supper featuring ham, coleslaw, breads and desserts. The supper will be at the Hosmer Field Complex. Beans will be raised at 2 p.m. sharp. Servings until the pots are empty! Cost is $10 for adults, and $6 for seniors and children.
This event is organized by University of Maine Oxford County Master Gardener volunteers.
