The trees are fast losing their leaves, leaving us with just a ghost of autumn past. In the interim, we have enjoyed warmer temperatures, blue skies, and lots of sunshine, with a few days of showers thrown in for good measure. Winter will be on us soon enough.

Other than a few bear and partridge hunters, our tiny towns are relatively quiet. Football season on the local level is winding down, but playoff hopes are high for both Engadine and Newberry. The fans are hoping for victories that carry them to the playoffs.

New members at the Rexton Christian Fellowship Church are Doug and Judy Harper, who maintain a summer home at Piatt Lake, near Strongs.

The newest grandchild of John and Elaine Browning, young Ryder, has been released from the hospital and is on the mend.

Word has come of the passing of my cousin, Richard “Dick” Beaudoin, who passed away in Florida. He was born and grew up in Trout Lake, served in the United States Navy, and worked for the United States Postal Service as a mail carrier. He was graduated from Rudyard High School.

The annual Dig Pink volleyball game will be held in the gymnasium at Engadine Consolidated Schools Thursday, October 27, at 4:30 p.m. Engadine will play Newberry, and they hope to pack the gymnasium in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Please come out and support these two teams as they support many of our area residents who are coping with this disease.
