Patti’s April 27 “Inside New Gloucester” Column

These volunteers are getting ready for a day of sprucing up the grounds at Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village during an annual Spring Work Day hosted by the Friends of the Shakers. This year’s work day is scheduled for Saturday, May 12.

Shaker’s spring work day

Brother Arnold and Sister June invite you to put your hands to work and give your hearts to God because Spring Work Day is just around the corner. Join the Friends of the Shakers on Saturday, May 12 at Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village, 707 Shaker Road.

Lend a hand working at various tasks suitable for all ages and abilities, including sweeping away the winter sand, cleaning out the hay barn, helping in the herb department, prepping the Shakers’ gardens, clearing brush, and so much more. Work days bring lots of hard work as well as much fellowship, too. Everyone shares the noon meal, conversation and laughter.

Participants are asked to bring a potluck dish or dessert and drop it off at the registration check-in table located on the lawn at the back of the Brick Dwelling House. Chores start at 9 a.m. and last until 3 p.m. All necessary tools and supplies will be furnished but if you have a favorite pair of work gloves, feel free to wear them. Pre-register at www.friendsoftheshakers.org or by calling 926-4597.

3/17 update from Fishermen’s Net

Hello and Happy St. Patty’s Day!
First, I would like to apologize for the lack of lobster in the tank/case. The weather, as well as other factors, have caused a drastic increase in the prices making them fly off the charts. I made an executive decision to hold off and wait a couple of weeks before re-ordering and to allow the prices to stabilize. This too shall pass!!!
Today we have a Fish-N-Chip special for $9.99
Fried clam plate is $16.99
AND we have…
Crabmeat on sale at $12.99/lb

Thank you all for making this a GREAT winter!!! We are hoping to make this a GREAT summer for you!!

Stay safe!
Nikki
