Wales Fish & Game Club 2011 Annual Pork Roast.

attendees-enjoying-the-fine-food
The Wales Fish & Game Club had its Annual Pork Roast yesterday. We got there around half past noon. First I helped with the fire which needed help; all the rain left the wood wet and hard to burn. The rain at least stayed away for the entire afternoon. There was more food than attendees could ever eat; Leon Givner started the long process of roasting the pork the evening before and stayed up all night to have it ready by noon yesterday; no wonder that he was tired..

The buffet included besides the pork roast, tossed salad, cole slaw, baked potatoes, baked beans, corn on the cop, applesauce, and drinks. For desserts, attendees were treated with apple pie, fudge, and brownies.
Elizabeth-with-her-necklace-donated-for-the-raffle The club also sold tickets for a raffle; among the many prizes was a beautiful necklace with matching ear rings made and donated by Julie’ Jewels’ Elizabeth Johnson. Elizabeth is not only crafting her own jewelry, she is also a seamstress and will sew anything from custom dresses to curtains. She can be reached at 413-315-3110.

About 35 adults and kids enjoyed the scenic setting which features two ponds in front of the club house. Thanks Leon for your efforts in organizing this enjoyable event. It is disappointing not to see more people attending this event.

By the time the fire was burning hot it was time to go home and the fire had to be extinguished. Some of the friends I made a year ago were back again and it is just amazing what happens to time… it felt like I was just there a few weeks ago.

Beware of the potholes on Brimfield Road.

Pothole-on-Brimfield-Road

Driving to Brimfield today, I hit a pot hole and thought that I would lose a wheel.

One pothole is so large and deep that it has the potential to ruin your rims if you have wheels with low profile tires. Be careful..

The pothole I’m talking about is located in the middle of the straight driving towards Brimfield before the last curve to the right before the Brimfield/ Holland line.

Brian, what is it what you accomplished in the last ten years?

Pontoon Boat Parade in Memory of 9-11 Victims.

9-11-Pontoon-Boat-paradeChristine McCooe organized a pontoon boat parade to commemorate the victims of 9-11.
Around 10:45 AM, about eight boat carrying flags and balloons started cruising north towards the causeway.

It is hard to believe that ten years have already passed since that day.
In some way or another, September 11, 2001 changed the lives of all of us.

Another Break-in at the Holland Market.

I just learned that the Holland Market was again the target of a Break-In. The police is there right now to investigate. The Holland Blog reported about the previous break-in on March 8, 2009 under the heading: Holland Market burglarized twice.

Break-in on 246 Stafford Road, Witnesses Sought.

Mr. Frei-
I'm writing in hopes you can post this or some form of it on the blog... today (august 10th) my house @ 246 stafford rd was broken into. Whoever did this had the nerve to kick my front door, steal my Toshiba laptop and an 80lb safe containing some sports collectibles and other personal items. They did this in broad daylight between the time of 10am and 3pm. By all indications just a completely random act. If anyone happened to be driving by and saw something or hears of anyone trying to pawn off a Toshiba laptop. Please contact me or the HPD. Greatly appreciate any help!
Bryan Teasdale, reach me at: Bteasdale24@hotmail.com

Bald Eagle Sighting On Hamilton Reservoir.

Bald-Eagle-on-Hammilton-Reservoir
It was a beautiful day on the lake, about 11:00 AM, before all the powerboats come out. Bald Eagle spotted looking out over the old public beach area. High up in a well guarded pine tree, he looked out over the lake. Incredible bird!
View is from the water as he was eye balling us as we floated on by.
