Fogged In

   The fog was thick at The Town Common on Academy Hill in Westminster Friday afternoon. In spite of the weather, we had a good turn-out by both vendors and customers at the first market of the season yesterday. People were pleased that Ann Patsis is back with her breads and jams. Ann also has mail boxes for sale, that she has toll-painted. A new vendor was there; Bob’s Red House Farm, from Winchendon,  along with our veteran members. As the season progresses we have several other new grower/members that plan on attending.

   On The Gazebo, Joe Reidy appeared at 3 p.m. and Keith McLinden at 5 p.m. They sounded great.Their performances were enhanced by our new audio system. Sue and Steve Nickerson did a great job shopping for, and picking out the new sound system for us. Thank you, Sue and Steve.


Open for The Serason
