The Cranberry Isles saw more cloudy days than clear, this week, including pop-up gale warnings and seas rough enough to prompt a rescheduling of Saturday’s morning mail boat run. Paul Hewes announced on Friday that Saturday’s 7:30 a.m. run would be cancelled, stating the company would run a 9 a.m. boat, instead.
The Town of Cranberry Isles posted a notice for residents who park in the Northeast Harbor lot during the winter months. The plow company has posted signs prohibiting parking in the lower left corner of the lot, in space numbers 89, 90 and 91. The area will be used for snow storage during the plow season to facilitate plowing. Vehicles parked in those spaces will need to move to different spots.
Congratulations to Ellen Gellerstedt whose daughter Mary Myers gave birth to a baby girl on Nov. 20.
Proud Grandpa JC Camelio reports an exciting delivery: “After some delays from her due date, the baby decided to forego the usual hours of delivery and began to arrive before the midwife could be there. Luckily, Ellen (a pediatrician) was on hand to help with delivering her newest granddaughter.” JC reports mother, father Jon, 2 year-old big brother Aven, and Grammie are all doing well.
