Memorial Day Weekend--Let the Summer Begin

IMG_0561

Seems to me that the daily pace has picked-up considerably. The color green is everywhere, camps on the lake are opening, fishing has been good, traffic around town is busier and everyone is looking forward to a busy season. And the Memorial Day weekend traditionally marks the return of Lovell's summer residents. IMG_0565 On Saturday, May 25th, the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library will be holding its annual Plant Sale. Not only is this an opportunity to purchase some beautiful outdoor plants, all proceeds go directly to the Library. I am real happy with the variety of plants that I purchased last year and look forward to adding more to our garden.

Sunday morning, from 7-10 am, is the breakfast for the Stoneham Rescue Service at the Stoneham Rescue Facility on Butters Hill Road. Lots of people attend and you won't go away hungry. Pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, french toast and homemade donuts. A great way to start the day and to support the volunteer service as well.

Later on Sunday, Fryeburg Academy's Class of 2013 will be graduating. Always a proud day for students and families and there are always plenty of cook-outs and parties to attend. Congratulations to all!

It would be great if everyone could attend the Memorial Day Celebration in Lovell at 11 am. It takes place at the Memorial Monument in the Village. The Fryeburg/Lovell VFW Post No. 6783 conducts the service. It is important to honor all the men and women who have lost their lives defending our great nation.

I would also like to acknowledge the Lovell Conservation Committee for the hard work that went into pulling moss and scrubbing clean the stone markers that surround the Memorial. A job well done and a big thank you!
