A giant yard sale to benefit the Robbinston Historical Society is scheduled for this Friday, May 24, and Saturday, May 25.  The sale will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Society and Grace Chapel on Route 1.  Donations for the sale are welcome; please contact Wayne Diffin at 207-233-3137 to contribute.

Congratulations to the local high school seniors who will soon be graduating.  This week’s edition highlights graduates from Calais High School.  Next week, we will feature graduates from Woodland High School, followed by Shead High School the week after.

Do you have plant cuttings that you could donate?  Donations of all types of plants are being accepted to CDRC’s annual plant sale, set to take place on Saturday, June 1, thanks to the wonderful local gardener Jane Eaton.  The sale will be held at Flat Iron Park in downtown Calais from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It always features a huge variety, including house plants, perennials, shrubs, trees, and more.  For more details on donating to the sale, Jane Eaton can be reached at 207-454-2812 or find CDRC - Calais Downtown Revitalization Coalition on Facebook.

Send me your news, your shout-outs for good deeds done, or your well wishes to give, and I’ll be sure to share them here. Until next week, I hope you stay well, stay safe, and be happy.
