It takes 40 gallons of maple sap to make one gallon of syrup!

As the snow recedes and more and more of the fields reappear, you can feel the transition from winter to spring on a daily basis. Yes, we take some steps backwards as the temperatures drop and we may have a storm on Tuesday but the days are much longer and you know the daffodils will be popping up very soon. The cold nights and warm days are perfect for collecting sap and making maple syrup. Maine Maple Sunday is March 24th. Here's a link to a map of participating sugarhouses.

Mud Season!

Another sign of the coming Spring will be the posting of the secondary roads for the purpose of prohibiting heavy trucks from doing additional damage to the soft road. Enjoy St. Patrick's Day and remember that Opening Day for the Red Sox and Major League baseball is April 1st.

    What a treat to see Lovell as you fortunate year-rounders do, yet the last photo of the old store site is still shocking. Our daughter Beth was a cashier there in past summers, and we have fond memories of the Craigs and Knights.

      Bob, I see the site everyday and it still has not registered completely. I always enjoyed the many people who would stop into the office and talk about their memories. The building was a special place for Lovell.

        I have some pictures from the late 1970s when it was Knights. It would be wonderful if the library, perhaps, would offer a way for folks to share memories and connect. It will be painful for many of us.

          I will speak to Cathy Stone of the Lovell Historical Society and see what she thinks. Perhaps a small exhibit this summer!
