The weather is finally changing, I hope. Today is beautiful. It looks like we are going to get some much better weather this week. The snow seems to be going slowly. The farmers are waiting patiently to get onto the fields. Between the snow and the mud it will be awhile before it actually happens here. We are beginning to see a number of deer and turkeys in the fields. Several deer have been hit crossing the road near our house on Route 139 in Thorndike already.
We were at Ingraham’s Open House April 8th. They had a really good crowd. The sun was shining but the wind was really cold that day. They had breakfast in the morning and lunch around noon. Dirigo Grange members helped serve the food that day. We sold Ag Scholarship Raffle Tickets and talked with people. It was a successful day.
We will be having a Grange judges meeting for Grange fair exhibits in a couple weeks. We could use a few more interested grange members as judges this year. If there are any willing to help out please contact Bob and I at 568-3479 or state grange headquarters ASAP. We will be attending a fair meeting at Fryeburg next month.
