Lovell Scarecrows

There will be lots of scary characters around town this Halloween weekend and may I suggest that you stop and admire the great-looking scarecrows that are hanging out on the front lawn of the New Suncook School. The PTA sponsored a Scarecrow Contest and the community was invited to participate. I think everyone did a great job!

Double Rainbow

I don't need to understand all of the science behind a rainbow's construction, I just like appreciating nature's magic. I don't think I have ever seen a double rainbow before! This appeared as I was getting ready to leave the office at 4:50 pm this afternoon after a brief rain storm.

    I was lucky because as I was loading my car to go home, I looked up and there was the rainbow. My camera was right in front of me. It was still raining so I did get a little wet. However, there have been plenty of times when I would see something, go get my camera and by the time I got back, there wasn't anything there!

      Glad you had your camera. Amazing!

        Always try to be ready for anything!

          These are great pictures. I feel the same about rainbows - especially in my favorite place! Two years ago there was a double rainbow over the north end of the lake where our cabins are - and I got a picture - but by the time I got my camera, it was not as brilliant.

          The Fall Harvest

          Now that the cooler mornings and evenings confirm that summer is in the rear-view mirror, what better way to celebrate Autumn than by visiting the Lovell Historical Society this Sunday, October 16th. From 1-4, the Society presents the The Fall Harvest, where there will be something for all members of the family.

          Children will be able to enjoy a petting zoo and to paint pumpkins for free. A cider press will be in operation and making cider with apples donated by Sweden's Pietree Orchard. Inside the historic Kimball-Stanford House, there will be many activities, including a large bake sale, a weaving and spinning demonstration plus an abundant refreshment table to enjoy. The museum will also be open for viewing. Birds On A Wire will be performing traditional "fiddle" music in the large barn.

          Except for the baked goodies that you will want to purchase and bring home, the entire afternoon is free and open to the public!
