LINCOLN — Weathervane Outreach in Lincoln will be hosting its annual senior citizen Halloween flu shot clinic this coming Thursday, Oct. 30, from 9 a.m. until noon at the church in Lincoln.
The theme this year will be music. There are lots of door prizes, prizes for any one that shows up in a costume, and lots of delicious goodies to snack on before or after one receives their shot.
Lorraine Patterson, Linda Norton, and Janet Orvis do most of the organizing and decorating.
MIDDLEBURY — While the camera is usually thought of as a tool for recording the facts of the real world with great exactitude, it can also be used to explore the wonders of the imagination.

Introducing “The Home Spun Tour.”

Autumn is coming to a close. The brilliant fall foliage is past peak, if not already layered in the compost bin. The last geese are honking their way toward winter homes. Predictions are proffered (sometimes cheerfully, mostly not) for how cold and snowy this year’s winter will be.
