Vivian Moore – 763-7081

Angus Johnson was taken to DHMC for emergency surgery last week. His family and friends wish him well.

Lois Moore was happy to have a visit with Scott Moore, from Ft. Lauderdale, visiting for a couple weeks. She enjoyed his photos, both local and from wildlife preservations in Florida. Scott has been both amateur and professional photographer since early childhood. Currently, his is using another interest—electronics— with his own business providing repair service for all kinds of electronic apparatus on marine vehicles. At 87, he is going strong!

While here for his visit, Scott has picked around 15 quarts, at least, of blueberries and blackberries. The freezer is ready for muffins and pies for the winter. Of course, they will eat pies now too, as fast as they appear on the counter.

As Scott left Lois’ home, her next guests came in. She was glad to see Byron Kinney, his wife Eileen and sister, Eva. After a long visit, they returned for Sunday dinner with the family. The Kinneys lived near Lois and were friends with all of her children.

It is already time for Old Home Day in Sharon. This Saturday, the parade will be at 10 a.m., with the welcome table on the church porch, where there will be coffee and doughnuts. The South Royalton Band will conclude their season with a concert on the bandstand following the parade.

At 11 a.m., the firemen will have their delicious chicken barbecue ready, and the free chicken pie dinner under the tent will also be ready for seniors over 70 and their spouses.

At 1 p.m., the Step ’n Time line dancers will perform, followed by free ice cream cones for all. Lastly, the day winds down with a dance at the firehouse from 7-10 p.m. Leading will be Richie Hackett.  There is still time to prepare your float for the parade; the theme this year is “patriotism.”
