Tell Us ‘Bout the Good Ole Days!

Judy tells us 'bout the good ole days!

It was a night to remember and a night for remembering as CWA Chair Judy Ricker shared music, facts and photos from the past. Thanks to photographer Roger Ricker we had a “virtual tour” of the Maine State Museum with many members offering color commentary… including Laura Pratt who admitted she remembered using a number of items pictured.  We also learned the derivation of a number of current sayings and found ourselves longing for some of the prices from days gone by… when Judy mentioned that mens’ dress shirts were only seventy nine cents in 1940, Laura noted that was the year she and Vance were married. So now we know what they paid for his shirt!

Our opening song (in two or three part harmony at times) was “You Are My Sunshine…” with the notation that “you” are about the only sunshine we have had for a while!

We also made some rousing plans for participating in the Guilford River Festival this year. Stay tuned (well, come back again) for more information about that… We’ve got lots of events coming up:

June 3rd many of our bookworms will be helping out with Arts Alive at PCES.

June 7th we’ll be having a joint meeting with Parkman Grange.

June 17th we have our regular monthly meeting.

June 18th is our Wicked Huge Yard Sale.

Don’t forget we can always use extra hands… if you can spare a few minutes to help out we need bakers for several of these events, helpers at our yard sale… chat with a granger and see what the opportunities are… or just send an email!
