Swan’s Island: Sunny Side Farm announces contest winner 

Serena Walker‘s Sunny Side Farm declares the winner of its Christmas contest/giveaway: “Thanks to everyone who played along with our guessing game this past weekend; we have had a lot of fun waiting and wondering when Katie the goat would have her kid, and you all added to the fun. Our winning guess was for 5:30 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 26, which was when Merry arrived. Keith Harriton is the winner of his choice of two dozen chicken eggs or a dozen chicken and half dozen duck eggs from our lovely layers. Congratulations on the correct guess.” 

Karen Preston Griffin announces a town job opening: “Snow removal for the town office, post office and other departments as needed. Requirement is removal of snow in the morning prior to 8 a.m. and possibly in the afternoon hours depending on the severity of storm. Contact the town office at (207) 526-4279.” She also reminds us, “If you have a boat and/or float stored at the Minturn Boneyard Storage, please contact the town office at (207) 526-4279 to sign a contract and pay the fee.” 

We extend our condolences to the family and friends of Mary Sue (Colbeth) Johnson, who passed away on Tuesday, Dec. 21. A funeral service was held in North Kingstown, R.I., and her burial will be privately held. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to Make-A-Wish Foundation of Rhode Island, 20 Hemmingway Drive, East Providence, RI, 02915, are appreciated.
