Mapleton Chapman Castle Hill Senior Citizens

    The Mapleton Chapman Castle Hill Senior Citizens met at Mapletree Estates Dec. 18 with 20 attending. Barb Waddell said the blessing on the food. After a delicious luncheon, President Marie Little called the meeting to order with the flag salute and Lord’s Prayer. Then the secretary and treasurer reports were read and accepted. A card was signed for Gertie Hughes. They sang Christmas carols, and they are working on a Christmas box for the homeless shelter.  The group meets every Monday – except the fifth Monday – at Mapletree Estates.


    Birthday wishes go out to Tim Smith, Shauna Johnston, Kendra Kennedy, Isaac Breton, Mildred Dean, Mark Christie, Ryan Guerette, Leo Bard Jr., Michael Warner, Joshua Buck, Peggy Bushey, Logan McNulty, Raquel Beaulieu, Beth Lavway and Kelly Lamoreau.


    Anniversary wishes go out to Lance and Bonnie Johnson.
Castle Hill Grange Hall Preservation Society
The Castle Hill Grange Hall Preservation Society is trying to get estimates to do the front hall. They need to raise about $1,000 more to complete the project. If anyone would like to volunteer to help with the project either to raise money or donate time, please contact any member.
The Society still has cookbooks for sale. They make great gifts for friends, relatives, and former citizens of Castle Hill. They are in the Town Office or from any member. Cookbooks are $7 each and contain over 175 recipes.
They are renting the hall from May to October only on a limited basis for family reunions, birthday parties, and showers. The price will be $100 and the $25 deposit will be returned if the hall is left clean. If interested or for more information, contact any member.
They are requesting that anyone who has knowledge of a veteran who served in the military between 1903 to the present to write or call Natalie Maynard, 2877 State Road, Castle Hill, Maine 04757 or 764-4878. They need names, dates, and any information you can give them so they can place the names on a sign or in a book in the future. The person must have been a resident of Castle Hill at the time of service.
They are searching for new members. Their meetings are held the fourth Tuesday of each month from February through November. Dues are $10 (working member), $15 (non-working member) and $100 (lifetime member). Please join us so we can keep the hall a center of our town.
