Thanks to the Lovell Selectmen and the Lovell Historical Society for working hard on the updating of the Veteran’s Memorial in Lovell Village. It was discovered, when the monument was installed in 2000, that a number of names were missing. Cathy Stone, President of the Historical Society, reached out to many in an attempt to make sure that everyone was rightfully included on this update. The criteria for a name to be on the memorial is simple and only one of the following needs to be met: to have been born in Lovell, to have lived in Lovell for more than one year or to be buried in Lovell.
It was great to speak with John and Don from Collette Monuments from Lewiston. They worked all day on this project and they take great pride in working on Veteran’s Memorials throughout the state and region.
It is my understanding that two granite benches have been ordered and will be placed in the park where future names will be engraved.
On Saturday evening, the weather was perfect for a cocktail hour on the dock and to grill dinner at camp. And it was nice to have some guests join us in our cove.
Here is a story from Sunday’s Outdoors section in the Portland Press-Herald discusses Kezar Lake’s Upper Bay. Click the link here: “Canoeing in Maine: There are few places that match the beauty of Kezar Lake”.
Three years ago, Michael Perry wrote an article for the Press-Herald on Kezar Lake’s Lower Bay. Here’s a link to the article.
Thanks to Tom Delano, the O’s game against the Red Sox was on my calendar for several months. Who knew that when the plans were made early in the season that both teams would be in a strong position to win the AL East. Wade Miley was scheduled to pitch for the O’s and based on his recent performances since he joined the team, I wasn’t too optimistic of a victory but I wasn’t prepared for the bashing that Red Sox gave them. It isn’t often that you see a team score at least one run in every inning.
But the weather was perfect, the seats were great and the beer, of course, was expensive. The past two nights brought a little satisfaction with the Orioles winning both games including a 1-0 pitching gem. That’s a score you don’t see very often in the AL East.
Not many games left to the regular season. Boston travels to Camden Yards next week for a four-game set and that should provide some very exciting baseball. In the meantime, I will just enjoy my cold six-pack delivered by Mr. Bliss.
