Friends gather at fire hall for baby shower

What a nice few days we’ve had to enjoy. This week has been busy.

On Tuesday, friends and relatives attended the funeral for the late Altie Adshade at Immanuel Church with committal being in the Mansfield Cemetery. Sympathy is extended to the family.

Prayers and sympathy is extended to Lillian Carter in the passing of her sister, Thelma Macini, last week.

So many folks have fallen, so do be careful. Ruby Kirkpatrick is at home with a broken ankle. Olive Jackson fell at her home and her brother Elmer (Bill) Carter, Oxford, had a nasty fall while hunting and Edith Hunsley, Little River, fell while getting out of bed and has a sore head. Get well wishes to you all.

Another year has been added to my age. The family gathered at a restaurant in Amherst on Friday night to celebrate. There were over 30 attending. I want to thank you all for the many cards, phone calls and gifts. I received a phone call from Ralph Welton, Wallace, and he sang “Happy Birthday” to me. As granddaughter Susan Clarke could not attend, she and her husband Andrew, daughter Sara and friend, Riverview, N.B., came on Sunday to visit. Also visiting on Sunday were Chad Lowther, and daughter Emma Lee. Helen Estabrooks, Brookdale, came with supper which was much appreciated.

Vivian and John Warwick spent Sunday afternoon with his mother, Ruth, in Truro.

The Leicester Fire Hall was filled with laughter and good friends of Sonya Cudmore on Saturday as all gathered to celebrate the coming of her baby expected in December. Many pictures were taken and completed with a “baby” cake. We also had a chance to see Natalie’s wee boy. They sure grow up quick. He had overalls on and is only eight weeks old. Natalie and Jeff Aucoin have bought a home and plan to move in December.

Another landmark has disappeared. The home formerly owned by Everett Hollis has been demolished and all cleaned up. How quickly everything is done these days.

Everyone seems to be away this morning. They must be taking advantage of the nice weather.

Quote: Laughter is contagious; Make sure you get, your daily dose.
