HELLO..AS I begin this column for you..just know that I am tired, but I do want to get it done. Today is my birthday and I have worked on another report and had several call trying to get it done before starting on my news. I sincerely Thank all of you for remembering my special day. You have all made it feel special and for that I am very appreciative. (THANK-YOU!)
10/23.. Connie McFarland invited me to come with her where the Red Hat Group were meeting at the new restaurant “Farm to Table.” First of all we both had banking to do and then some shopping and filled the car with gas before we went for our Brunch. There were 15 of us that gathered for 11:30 and we pushed the tables together to sit around and chat with one another. On Tuesday’s they have a Senior Brunch with several different choices to choose from. We all ordered what we wanted, and everyone of us was very satisfied with our prepared food. We were given a warm welcome upon arrival, we all certainly appreciate the wonderful time that we enjoyed while there. Thanks To All!!!
10/15.. Thursday evening 21 young writers competed in the annual young writers contest put on by the “Friends Of The Montgomery Town Library.” Winners in the 4-5 grade group were Emily Lumbra, Benson Alexander; Winners in the 6-8 grade group were Micha Racusin and Elijah Draper. A big Thank-You to Darren Drevik, Kay Kuryloski, and Jane Pressler for the challenging job of judging. Montgomery parents and teachers are very proud of all entries.
10/27..Our daughter Veronica DeSaintPhalle from Johnson and our Niece Pamela Martin Harris planned to get together to have a Mother and Daughter day out to celebrate recent birthdays. Veronica was picking me up to join the other ladies in St.Albans. Earlier in the morning while I was out, Roberta Martin called here at my home and Sonny took the message, that there was a change in plans. Pamela’s husband Scott was taken to the hospital there in Texas with pain. She called to get a flight out of Burlington as soon as possible. She would have to be at the airport for around 10 -11. They were picking up Shirley Jacobs to come with us and they quickly called her to let her know there was an emergency. She was very understanding. IN the meantime Veronica is almost at my house to pick me up. Once Veronica came inside I explained the situation to her, she also wanted Penny to come with us, but she had other plans. We then called Roberta and invited her to come back to St.Albans and join us once Pamela was at the airport. She said depended on the weather if there was no rain or snow. Roberta’s daughter Priscilla Hammond was also meeting with us and SO would you believe there were four of us that came together at “Pie In The Sky” for lunch. Veronica had text her Aunt Jean Corse and cousin Nikki Corse to come and join us if they were in the area. They did and it was a family reunion for all of us. IT was wonderful!!! I think my birthday was celebrated the most
And it was nice, special and so appreciated. Thank You!!
10/27.. Our concert with the “Christian Country Singers” was enjoyed by the people that came. Most of their songs were written by them. They have not been on tour for a few years but they sure made a comeback Saturday night. It was so appreciated!!!
Happy Birthday to: Marcel Begnoche 11/4; Ryan Smith, Lauren Diette 11/5; Barbara Hulbut 11/6; Dan Malloy, Bobbi Jo Lumbra, Diane Gendron 11/7; Daren Davidson, Abby Dixon-Boles 11/8; Karen Scheffler 11/9.
Today while I was talking with my sister down near Windsor, she is involved with many activities down there and they were having a Halloween party for some of the children. She had made doughnuts for kids and as she was offering to this little boy, He said , “No I don’t want doughnuts, I want candy.” She got a big kick of this and laughed and laughed. We got a big laugh out of our dog Willee, while Penny, Sonny and David sang Happy Birthday to me..Willee joined in with his voice. He was going to sing to his MOMMY too!
He does pretty well for his age as he will soon be 15. He is so precious to us. Halloween will be over by this time this comes out. Hope it was fun and safe for everyone. Take care..M.L.T.A. October is coming to an end..Happy November!!

I will get going and finish up this column. I was watching a little of Highway thru Hell..with Jamie Davis huge wreckers getting those big –big trucks that crash on the highway that becomes covered with snow and ice. Seems like they would close the highway down when the weather gets so bad. This comes on the weather channel every now and then. Anyhow getting back to my news, its is rather cold here this afternoon and snow flurries out on the hills and probably Jay Peak. This is the coldest day we have had since Spring. Just a little sample of what is coming.
October has become the month for the Green Mountain Ruby Reds to be attending plays. An added treat has been the beautiful Fall foliage on our journey to the events. In Hyde Park we saw the humorous “All Shook Up” and enjoyed a bite at Hoagies in Morrisville. Our next event was in Enosburg at the “Opera House” where we watched, “Rumors” as we sat and laughter some more. Our third event was over Jay Peak, we saw a sign at the Sacred Heart Church in Troy, that they were having a pork roast dinner and we stopped . There was an abundance of food and hospitality and a Priest who moonlights as a photographer. Thank You for taking such nice pictures of the Red Hattes and we even had someone take a picture of him with us ladies. From there we ventured to the “Haskell Opera House “ in Derby and enjoyed the play “Mousetrap” a murder mystery and So help me I can not tell you who done it. (Notes from Diane Bocian..Thanks)
Elementary School: The after School Program (LEAPS) Girls Club is collecting warm socks during the month of October entitled “Socktober.” They have collection boxes at the school so you can drop them off there or send them to school with one of the children that attend. Their goal is to collect 75 pair of warm socks to be given to the Shelter in St.Albans. For more information contact Renee Roddy at the school 326-4618. What a nice gesture for our School Children to do. Thank You and they will be so appreciated.
This is the second event: “LIGHTS ON AFTER SCHOOL OPEN HOUSE” to be held this Thursday, October 25, from 3 :30 – 5 p.m. Come and see what all the fun things we do after our school classes are over for the day.

**A woman driver made an illegal turn, the officer ordered her to pull over and gave her a ticket. Anxious to keep her husband from learning the true facts during his monthly audit of the checkbook, she marked the stub, “ONE PULLOVER, $25.” This is all folks, hope everyone enjoyed the Turkey Dinner that was held at St.Isidore’s Parish Hall today. M.L.T.A.
What a wonderful sunny afternoon, the leaves are so golden and slowly falling down. We put some storm windows on this afternoon. It says cool weather this week and its time to button up. We celebrated the five new members that joined our Church on September 23rd, with gifts of a new Bible to each of them with their names on the front in gold; and we ended with a brunch in the fellowship hall. There were 18 of us in attendance, each person bringing something to share. Congratulations to Nord Hovermann, Lyndol and Lila Elkins , Frank and Linda Elkins. God Bless you!!

10/9..Seven members of the Green Mountain Ruby Reds went to Fairfield for the senior lunch which turned out to be a brunch. They were all greeted and welcomed at the door with open arms. With six homemade buffet choices, warm homemade applesauce, pastry, juices and coffee. There was just no way anyone would go away hungry. There was music before and after our meal as we got caught up visiting with friends. There was warmth and sincerity to all of us and we hope to make a return visit. THANK-YOU, Fairfield for making a wonderful day for us! (notes by, D.Bocian )

10/10.The Autumn Luncheon was held at the Montgomery Arts Center with a good attendance, all of us enjoying delicious hot dishes, spoon bread, cookies, chocolate cake brought in by Cindy Weed, then there was cold beverage. Thanks to the cooks Sharon Perry, Wendy Howard, Melissa Haberman, Chef Joey Buttendorf, and Joe Gilmartin. Thanks to all volunteers Chloe Hardy, Kenny Smith, Mark Baddorf, Sebastian Araujo, and Joe Zartarian and the Snowshoe Crew for lending supplies. Sue Baddorf started this Fellowship Luncheon a few months ago and she did not include her name when she gave me the list of Volunteers..she plans with the cooks, when to have a meal, she prepared the Invitations and delivered them door to door, picked up people and drove them to the hot meal site and back home after. This has given many people a time to fellowship with others in the Community. Mark and Sue Baddorf said their “Good –Byes” to all in attendance, Cindy Weed had a card of Thanks for everyone to sign for them and a beautiful bracelet was given to Sue. They are returning to Maryland to be closer to their new granddaughter.
