The Longfellow School kids and teachers, along with other community members, came together at The Ladies Aid on Wednesday to make Valentine cards for friends and loved ones for the upcoming holiday. Everyone also made cards for elderly members of the community, which were delivered along with chocolates. Thanks to The Ladies Aid for providing good snacks, punch, coffee and a wood fire to sit by and warm hearts.
The next Ladies Aid event will be pie night on March 14. All are welcome.
It’s been a quiet week on Islesford. Kaitlyn, Cory and Bode Duggan went to visit family in Woolwich; Sally Rowan and Skip Stevens headed south for a few days. Internet access was the only difference, the cold temperatures were alive and well. That will change soon! (Both internet and temperatures) On the island, people hunkered down to stay warm.
Ted Spurling has gone to the Dominican Republic for Hancock County Medical Missions as a translator for surgeons and family physicians. They will be in the town Dajadon in the northern part of the country, on the border with Haiti. Taking off from Bangor was delayed by snow; the return trip is in two weeks.
Coffee hour at the Islesford library included pumpkin bread. As always, it was well received.
Phil and Karin Whitney travelled to Stockholm, Sweden for eight days to visit Karin’s large family. It was a surprise visit; no one knew they were coming. Fortunately, the family was happy to have the two unexpected visitors. The Stockholm weather was similar to Cranberry Isles, and the Whitneys had a lovely time sharing time and incredible food with loved ones.
Birthdays include Denise McCormick on Feb 16 and Dedi Whitaker on Feb 19. Happy birthday!
