                                    Very often, finding the perfect Christmas gift for that someone special can be very difficult.

                                      Great old photo of the church. Al tells me that when he was very young the older kids used to ski down this hill. There was no fence there and the snow was so deep it covered the stone wall making a natural jump. The kids would soar over it and ski to the bottom at the side of the church. See you at the concert this afternoon!

                                            Even from far away, I have gotten a gift certificate for family members at Ebenezer's Pub so that they can have a meal on me when they return to Lovell for their summer vacation! They were so kind! :) I contacted them through their website (http://www.ebenezerspub.net) and made arrangements for the gift certificate to be sent to me.

                                            Christmas is coming fast this year and there are always gifts to buy for that special someone. Wouldn't it be a great idea to skip Amazon.com, the Conway outlets or the Maine Mall and buy a wonderful present from a Lovell merchant that I'm sure would make the recipient very happy?

                                            Here are some local options: * Buy a quilt or some cloth from Martha at Rocky Ridge Quilters. Martha also offers lessons for beginners. 207-925-3088. * Lots to choose from at the Harvest Gold Gallery in Center Lovell. Custom designed earrings, bracelets, necklaces, rings and more. Inside their large gallery is a wide variety of American-made art work (much of it local) that will brighten every home. Bill and Lynda can be reached at 207-925-6502. * Who doesn't love having breakfast, lunch or dinner at Rosie's Lovell Village Store? It is the perfect place to catch up with what is happening around town. Gift certificates are always available. Call Rosie at 207-925-1255 or stop in. * Get GREAT BUYS at Center Lovell's two Antique Stores. Although winter hours are by chance and/or appointment both owners would be happy to meet you at your convenience. The Wonder Store is owned by Peter Worrall and he can be reached at 207-925-1252. Bill Doyle, owner of Doyle's Antiques, can be reached at his store 207-925-1279 or at home, 207-925-3233. * How about a gift certificate to Ebenezer's Pub? During winter, it is an easy snowmobile ride to their front door. The Pub's phone number is 207-925-3200. * Next summer, surprise your family with a Kezar Lake vacation!. Check out all the fine camp rentals at Kezar Realty. Jeanne Bonner can help you find what is perfect for your budget and family. 207-925-1500.

                                            Still can't figure out what to give to someone who has everything? How about a gift in their name to some of our local organizations? The Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library, Lovell Historical Society, Brick Church for the Performing Arts, Greater Lovell Land Trust, Kezar Lake Watershed Association, Lovell's United Church of Christ or Lovell Friends Helping Friends (winter fuel assistance for the needy)!

                                            MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

                                            Restoring the Brick Church's Belfry

                                            After a busy and successful 2012 Summer Season, work began on the restoration of the belfry that sits on top of Lovell's Brick Church for the Performing Arts. Several years of fundraising provided a sufficient amount of money for the complicated process to proceed. There was also an element of uncertainty as to exactly what amount of rot would be found once layers of flashing and shingles were removed.

                                            The good news is that the unknown damage to the tower was minimal, that the work has been completed and done within budget. The repairs were done by the firm Limerick Steeplejacks and I enjoyed not only watching them work on the ground and on the roof, but seeing the progress on a daily basis. Both inside and out, the laborers seemed to be very comfortable working high off the ground. (What is a steeplejack?)

                                            Since 1850, the Brick Church has always been an important institution in Lovell but with its location off of Route 5, not everyone is aware of this beautiful structure. It is worthwhile to take a detour up Christian Hill Road to see the finished work. Although interior restoration continues and funds need to be raised for that, when next summer rolls around, please be sure to attend a concert or two. The building is a gem!
