My mother always said, “The older you get, the faster time goes by”. I was reminded of this fact when I read this week’s Gibson notes and saw a reminder from Jill that is was time to start gathering items for our display at the Fryeburg Fair. Good grief! However, there’s no need to panic. You won’t need to drop anything off until late September. We just want to give you a bit of a head start. Since we’re on the subject of head starts, you might also contact Jill regarding the Aloha Quilt, the Mud Bowl parade, and the Halloween Scarecrow competition. Enjoy the weekend!
We have several “5 Minute Forums” coming up in August. Two will be held at theGibsonCenterwhile a third will be held at ourSilverLakemealsite. All forums are open to the public so check the dates below and plan to join us. We also have several great days trips planned for the rest of the summer so be sure to check our schedule below. You can call 356-3231 to reserve a spot for any of these events or stop by the front desk and ask Penny to sign you up.
