    Jim, Thanks for your support!

      Love the Publix commercial. Is there Publix in Maine?
      • Jim Rowe on

        Nice, Stan! Hope 2013 is a good year for you and your business.

          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!

              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.

              Thanksgiving 2012

              Thanksgiving is the perfect time to reflect on things to be grateful for. In no particular order, here are a few of mine: Thanks to Ben and Cassandra for our first grandchild, Jackson...for Ben moving to Virginia Beach for the next two years rather than back to Afghanistan... for being able to see our daughter Anna experience living in two of the world's vibrant cities, New York and Beijing and to hear her speak Mandarin ...for having the good fortune to live in Lovell with my wife, Rondi... for the long morning and evening walks with the dogs...for the opportunity to work with many fine organizations on numerous events where not only do we raise funds but we have a grand time doing so...for living in a section of the country where, except for an occasional blizzard, we don't have to worry about destructive hurricanes or tornadoes...for the Baltimore Orioles finally putting 13 ugly losing seasons behind them...for talking to my Mom every night...for living next to the 100-acre woods and learning the tree-cutting process--from taking it down, dragging it out, splitting and stacking the logs--from Albert on the land he grew up on...for being able to enjoy my mother-in-law Jacky's never-ending smiles...for having family access to Kezar Lake and living in a place where people from around the world like to visit every summer...for our continued friendships with so many people from our 20 years in the Baltimore/Annapolis/DC region ...grateful that the Ravens go to the playoffs on a regular basis...for having the luxury of a Thanksgiving dinner with family and friends.

              And last, but not least, I am very thankful for Kezar Realty, the three wonderful agents in the office and the many customers who have become friends. Thank you to everyone who reads this blog!

                    Thanks, Stan, for the spirited blogs that keep us many folk 'from away' in touch with the town and people we enjoy each spring, summer and fall.
                    • Jim Rowe on

                      We all have much to be thankful for! I'm thankful for our friendship and hope you and your family have a good winter. Keep those blog notes and photos coming!

                        Thanks Jim! Enjoy the holiday. I'm sure you won't have access to roasted turkey.

                          2012 Gasping Gobbler 5k Run/Walk

                          It was a perfect fall day for the 82 runners and walkers completing the 3.1 miles around the Lovell Athletic Field at the 7th Annual Gasping Gobbler 5k Run/Walk. There was a great mix of young and old participants enjoying the event and raising funds for the Lovell Recreation Department. All entrants received a 'Gasping Gobbler' scarf (complimenting hats and headbands from previous years) and a delicious lunch at the Lovell VFW Hall. As always, a great big thanks to all of our many sponsors and volunteers.

                          Congratulations and turkeys to overall winner Silas Eastman (16:27.1), top female Diane Bessey (23:42.0) and top walker Tamylea Guptill (41:08.7). Anna Romer also won a turkey for finishing in the 'Middle of the Pack'. All photos courtesy of Roger Williams.

                          OVERALL RESULTS MALE RESULTS FEMALE RESULTS AGE GROUPS & WALKERS

                          5th Annual Chili Competition Winners

                          We knew that we were in for a good afternoon when the judges declared that this year's collection of chilis was the best ever! Twelve entrants cooked their specialty and shared it with 100 voters. People tasted, mingled and enjoyed a fun afternoon all while raising funds for a special local charity--Lovell Friends Helping Friends. LFHF provides heating assistance (oil, gas, wood) to needy local families.

                          Judges' Choice: First Place -- Stephen James Second Place -- Tie -- Bobby Collins and Ryan Caracciolo Third Place -- Tie -- Al Stearns and Center Lovell Market

                          People's Choice: First Place -- Stow Corner Store Second Place -- Bobby Collins Third Place -- Ryan Caracciolo

                          Best Table Design -- Bobby Collins

                          A big thank you to the judges: Janice Sage of the Center Lovell Inn, Marc Moulton, Bob Drew and Ethel Hurst. And thanks to all the bakers who contributed to the overflowing bake sale table, to those who donated items to the auction table and to the Lovell Fire Department for the use of the Center Lovell Firehouse. A total of $1,143 dollars was raised.

                          Here's the good news--if you were unable to attend the Chili Competition and would like to contribute much-needed funds, please send your check to LOVELL FRIENDS HELPING FRIENDS, c/o the Lovell Town Office, PO Box 236, Ctr Lovell, ME 04016.
